    Filmation should be the main design blueprint. The Icon Heroes statue is an interesting compromise, but I would not want that as a playset. There are two main reasons for this. First, the colors are WAY too bright. It looks like candyland.

    If the green of the snake was changed to a super dark almost obsidion green and the purple of the mountain was a hue almost as dark as the snake to match, it would be closer to the feel of filmation, dark and foreboding.

    The second reason, is that the snake head on the Icon statue is way too small and unimposing. The Head is the equivalent to the Skull Facade on Grayskull, it is the focal point and should be what draws the attention of your eye. It should not draw ANY inspiration from the vintage snake head, as that thing was very poorly executed. It should look like this.

    It should be at least large enough to place a figure in its jaws.

    Besides those two issues with tthe icon design, the other issue is the size/cost issue. If you were to include the side that does not have the snake, it would double the cost. It is a great way to get the vintage face on the playset, but I would prefer they just made the snake coiled mountain portion, and then made a hole on the side facing away from the snake head that a waterfall or even the vintage snake mountain could just slide into. The hole would be a great way to be able to access the inside of the mountain when it is folded closed. Just make the snake coiled side, slide in your vintage Snake mountain, like this.

    This will save on cost and shipping. If you leave a place to slide in things, later 3rd party or first party add-ons could be made, waterfall, smaller spiked mountain, etc.

    Scott said at one of the cons after Grayskull met it's goal that "when and if" they ever do make a Snake Mountain playset that it would be the Filmation style Version of Snake Mountain
    Looking forward to the entire 2014 & 2015 line

    I would love to see a filmation Snake Mountain. However I would be content with the icon heros' version if the lava "waterfall" was red and the snake was grayish black. I didnt like the weird face on the old toy version but the icons one would be a good compromise I guess.

    Other: a mix of Filmation and vintage toy. What Icon Heroes did but as a playset.
    It's all been done before. Everything to say has already been said. Do me a solid and pretend I posted something witty and original here

    I'm with you 110% on this. I had the original and for all it's faults I loved it...BUT the snake mountain featured in the filmation cartoon feels like the definitive version for me - it's so damn cool! A combination of the two arguably most memorable snake mountains would be orgasmic! I sincerely hope we get a snake mountain before MOTUC closes up shop...Castle Grayskull is all good and well, but how can I say this...ummm Snake Mountain is my Castle Grayskull (if you get what I mean)...
