    MOTUC Snake Mountain Discussion Thread

    Hopefully we will get the help we need to get a Castle Grayskull off of the ground enough to get a Snake Mountain!

    Now saying this if this when/does happen which version would you want?? If they said Filmation was going to be the design but if you wanted the design what would that be?

    The FILMATION design is great but itīs difficult to bring it to play set dimensions. The Snake head is huge, it should be at least possible to put two figures standing in itīs mouth but the rest of the "castle" are mountains where we have no clue where the throne room should be, where the conference room was, where the dungeons are or where the labs are.

    The FILMATION Fright Zone is huge as well but if seen one custom version where itīs scaled down but still pretty cool and fitting!

    I'd like a Snake Mountain with character, so I chose the vintage playset.

    The FILMation design is cool, but I feel it's way too generic for a playset. It's basically a rock with a snake on it. If we were to get a FILMation styled one, the inside would have to be amazing to make up for the lack of features on the outside.

    Filmation! I never liked the original version and then we missed out on a 200X. I would be more excited for a decent Snake Mountain finally than I am for Grayskull.

    I think the best way to make a MOTUC Snake Mountain would be to use a nice mix of the M.Y.P. and the Filmation versions.

    Use the M.Y.P. more intense looking Snake Mountain as the front half for the basis of the front halfs design and then throw in some spikes around the base of the front and back for a Filmation homage. For the second side use the Filmation red crystal falls with mountain [which could even be reworked a little bit to be painted up as flowing hot lava now] an mountain with spikes around the base for the second side. [Perhaps have a rock that can slide back an forth in a shaped track for the rocks top and bottom as a secret entrance on the rock mountain side as secret entrances. As having secret entrances were both major plot points on both the M.Y.P. and Filmation Snake Mountains].

    I personally think this kind of approach to making it would be the best way to make both a M.Y.P. and a Filmation Snake Mountain that would satisfy both kinds of fans.

    Man, I didn't read all the way, I want anything but the toy version. So take one vote off the "Original Toy Version" when you tally this.

    Original toy version. Maybe incorporating the Blood Falls

    Other. I could care less what style as long as we get the damn thing. Certainly prefer Snake Mountain head and shoulders above CG but that's the way it goes...

    frankly I love the hybrid they pictured of old toy elements with other toon factors mixed in that comic.

    I want either that, or "just" the vintage one.

    I liked the version illustrated on the Skeletor VS lex luthor set, with Vintage and MYP designs mixed together.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I'd like to see them use cool elements from all the different styles and blend them into the MOTUC Snake Mountain.
    I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!

    Daaayyum!

    Of course Filmation. And I don't care if it only has one room- with Skeletor's throne and viewscreen- table.

    Holy cow that is sweet. I want that one no doubt. However, the version from the DC two pack would be a nice fit for both fans of the toy and the cartoon versions......

    Definetly a mix of the vintage playset and the filmation series.

    I think Robot Chicken have done the best job so far:

    I'd be intrigued to see the unique play areas the 4H would come up with inside an original design for Snake Mountain that combines aspects of all versions. But I doubt it would see enough pre-order to get made. So how about a different approach? $30 - $50 dioramas of specific locations, such as the various throne rooms!

    Could an artist make this playset using Kickstarter?
