    As with Snakes Faces prototype, his armor looks very wide at the sides and it seems he can bring down his arms...

    ..but maybe itīs just me and iīm imagine things...?

    That Watchmen packaging is really cool. Maybe I'll venture into MOC? Hmm.

    Is it just me, or does poor TG drop something in every video?

    Thanks for posting.

    I think it's nerves... LOL.
    I am jealous that Watchmen has superior packaging to MOTUC
    He always teases... I wanted a sneak peak at Strobo, too! Looks cool with that chest mirror

    snake-face looks amazing! ... im loving the transformation capability on this figure ...

    kudos to scott too - despite all the crap he has gotten over the past few years, his enthusiasm never falters ... he's a good guy

    I love how TG tosses Doctor Manhattan aside. That Watchmen package is kinda cool... (must resist urge to make joke about Doctor Manhattan's package.)
    I wish I would have been able to see Snakeface's feature a bit better.
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now who shall I fight for?

    This explains why the Watchmen figures cost $25

    So I imagine Rio Blast will be somewhat similar... perhaps you won't necessarily fold the chest gun out of his chest, but merely snap it into place? It's kind of weird to me though... having these snap-on snakes when you pull the other parts out and all... isn't coming up with how that works pretty much equal to just doing it the way they did it with the classic toy? I guess I don't see how one way is cheaper than the other...

    Love the watchmen packaging. I think I'll use the spines of it as a backdrop for the figures. Happy I got on the sub for that one.

    Excited about Snake Face! Definitely can't wait to see how his armor turns out.

    With Rio and Snake Face, if you did it like the classic toy, you'd have to mold a whole new MOTU buck. With these, it just looks like you're snapping pieces into the armor. So you're just doing new armor, not a new body.

    I agree, it was VERY hard to see this videos details on the figures.

    Not in the best mood today so forgive me... I really wish Scott would get a "Faceman" to do these videos... or practice once or twice before hand or SOMETHING.
    I am really tired of him dorking them up

    Very cool! Thank you Tallstar for posting…I'm really looking forward to Snake Face! He's my favorite Snakeman.

    That Watchmen packaging is really nice. Matty really does a superb job on packaging their items. I like the tray that holds the figure- seems like it would keep the figure safer.

    From what I could see, Snake Face looks pretty nice. It was really, really hard to see anything, though. My wife's smartphone takes clear, nicer videos than these that Mattel uses. Surely someone has a smart phone to use and can manage a close up or two!

    Scott needs to learn to zoom in with his camera. I couldn't see what Snake Face looked like at all. It really is pointless of him doing these videos when everything is so blurry.

    I think the snakes are attached to an armour piece that goes over the standard male torso. It's cheaper than creating a new hollow torso for the snakes to fold into, which they'd have to do to remove the abdomen articulation.

    You mean to tell me no one at Mattel has an HD camera to record these videos with? Doesn't the iphone record in HD?

    now I am totally ******. My original plan was to order both Rorschach and Ram Man this month with combined shipping. Since Ram Man is delayed, I thought scrw it, I will skip this month and get Ram Man and Jitsu. But now after seeing this video, I need Rorschach, so I now have to spend on shipping twice!!!

    Really? Watchmen get a package where you can put them back inside? And a full color mailer, which I could live without for MOTUC obviously, but a resealable package for a small ass line like this....

    I wish MOTUC had a version of this using the existing packaging, and it could have been done, for nothing more than a card that slides out once you cut the tape....yet Watchmen get this overly elaborate package....

    It's well more than a more collected brand than MOTUC gets....
    Recent....Unnamed One & Hydron
    Coming....
    Wanted....Entrapa, Double Trouble, Light Hope, Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Check here for my My collection page, MOTU and more!

    I think the Watchmen line is being handled very poorly. They are expensive figures but share parts from an existing line yet get nice packaging. At the price they are asking for them they should be unique sculpts IMO.

    Snake Face looks excellent and I hope hope is snake head is durable.

    Snake Face looks awesome. I can't wait to get him. I also wish that TG would have talked a bit about Strobo.
