    Icon Heroes Snake Mountain Business Card Holder thread

    I'm lost. Didn't toyguru say that there wouldn't be a snake mountain because greyskull was so difficult to pull off? Any info on how, when and where it will be released ? We talking pre order again ?

    He did not rule it out forever. But, since it takes so much effort, it will not be in in 2014 or 2015, because all the effort will go into finishing the vintage figures.

    It was the business card holder, much like the one they did for Grayskull last year that can also hold the Power Sword letter opener.

    There was also the statue that they announced awhile back that also matches the Grayskull statue that they released last year.

    The Icon Heroes releases are completely separate from MOTUC. They got a license from Mattel to make these desk/business items, statues, and so forth.

    The Snake Mountain that is coming out from them is not a playset in scale with the MOTUC figures. It is a 'statue' of Snake Mountain. Scale-wise it probably won't be too much taller than the MOTUC figures. But it still costs close to $300. And they are also now doing a business card holder separately.

    They also did a Castle Grayskull business card holder and a Castle Grayskull 'statue,' both of which were completely separate releases from the MOTUC Castle Grayskull.

    These items have no bearing on what happens within MOTUC. Toyguru's statement was only in reference to a potential MOTUC playset to go with the figures.

    The snake on this item is too bright green. Needs to be darker.

    Im the same, im going to finish off classics and statues and lifesize busts before i even think about getting any off these, just dont have the extra money. I think over time these will come down in price on the secondary market.

    Just got an e-mail from BBTS stating that this item has been cancelled by the manufacturer due to unforeseen circumstances.

    Until I hear otherwise I'm going to assume it's because it didn't match the upcoming Snake Mountain playset and they want uniformity.

    i fyou are syaing the card holder is canceled due to it not being close neough to an upcomming playset, that is very optimistic. I like your line of thinking. Kinda doubt it, but also could see that happening now that you mention it. Exciting premise.

    It's crossed my mind as well;
    then i got back to a more plausible reason,
    It's been cancelled due to the coming out schedule.
    Which would have been too close with a possible preorder announcement
    of the Motuc playset during the SDCC.
    Maybe they feared that the overabundance of news around
    this item alone could actually kill the hype in a sense, you know.

    My guess is that it's more likely due to the fact that the other Icon Heroes MOTU items did not sell as well as they had hoped and they have decided to stop making them. They haven't announced anything new MOTU related in quite a while and the Snake Mountain business card holder was something revealed to be coming well over a year ago.

    I always thought the Snake Mountain business card holder looked bland anyway,nowhere as awesome as the Castle Grayskull card holder!

    I'm glad to have finally pulled the trigger and bought the Snake Mountain Environment Statue a month ago,which is more than enough Snake Mountain for me!(unless a Classics playset comes out!)

    Yeah, I cannot see a Snake Mountain cardholder being more popular than the grayskull one anyway. And who would need two?

    I do particularly love how the Grayskull cardholder was used as the Subternia Gate to Castle Grayskull on the Grayskull map. Makes me want to buy it now.
