    I like him in a weird nostalgia kind of way even though I never had him as a kid. His color combo is definitely a little odd as well as the legs and upper body parts combo but I like it.

    I only wish he had a few more deco hits on the snakes and shield as someone added in the display thread.

    Received mine a few days ago. No issues with the figure at all. Perfect joints/paint,etc.

    Only thing i wish was better was the shield.

    Opened mine last night and he's pretty awesome! Not a favorite character of mine, but the MOTUC version has me pretty excited for him now. Great joints, great paint aps, everything works beautifully!

    Bring on Karatti and the FFM!!!
    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

    Got my 2. Great figures. Favorite Snake man yet. Only flaw would probably be the shield. It could have had more station influence and more paint apps it would have been perfect.

I called Digital River back & they said a 3rd renewal attempt will take place on the 22nd or 23rd. Has anyone ever had a similar problem? If so did the 3rd renewal attempt go through?
    I had this very same problem this month. They said after the third attempt, I would need to call them to get my membership reinstated. My reply was that nothing regarding my payment method had changed and I had already verified that my CC company had not declined any charges from DR.

    I told Digital River that it was their responsibility to figure out why they were suddenly unable to process my payment method. If they had not been able to do so, I let them know that I would NOT call them to get my membership reinstated. I will not fight to keep my membership when they seem to invent ways to screw up. That said, on their third attempt, they were magically able to process my payment.

    This is definitely a nod to the ORIGINAL Clash of the Titans Medusa! Ray Harryhausen's creatures for that movie were brilliant!

    Too bad the remake didn't take more inspiration from his sculpts.

    Met up with my sub buddy yesterday for the Kane Co, Ill toy show and received my Snake Face(along with 2 more sets of Snake Men). Was able to open them all last night and Snake Face is awesome. No QC issues to be seen and just a really solid figure. The "snakes out" head is very well done and the black panels/red snakes switch out easily. Very happy with him and now I can't wait to see what they do with Sssqueeze and Tung Lashor!

    Absolutely. I hate to "jinx" it but it seems that Mattel has really done a 180 when it comes to QC so far this year.
    I'm very nervous about Sssqueeze though because I really think that his arms need to be bendy. The Octavia approach just isn't going to fly with Sssqueeeze.
    I'm also very curious as the route they'll take with Tung Lashor. Will the "tongue-out" head look like the staction or more like the vintage where his mouth was closed and the tongue just popped out?

    I would hope it's more like the Staction. The normal head can be super vintage and the "action" head can be with the jaws open and tongue out. I never really liked the Snake Men until the 200x series, and now I have 11 of them(not including Kahn, Snake MAA etc). I don't even want to think about what's going to happen when we get Horde Troopers.

    I would hope so but I'm not so sure that's how it will be done. If you look at the more recent "extra head" figures...both heads are the same sculpt with just additions/subtractions to the main head.
    Snake Face used the same head but added the snakes to the front and removed the tails from the back. Even Kobra Khan used the same sculpt, just added the "hood." Ram Man, just removed the helmet...same face sculpt.

    Got mine a while ago, but have been moving so I barely had time to open him, let alone post pics! Plus I wasn't that excited to do so; the snakes-out head is awesome, but I feel the rest of him is pretty bland. There's so much detail on his arms, I wish they'd given him some different legs.

    i am really of sick of them painting bare feet the same color as the shin guards. if a character is wearing boots give him boots. he should be wearing the hordak boots or he should be barefoot. i also wish they had given him the whiplash legs

    So..... Is he suppose to rattle, or does Pixel Dan's got a broken piece of plastic in it? Mine does not, I don't really care, but I am curious.

    Got my Snake Face finally. Great figure in package I gotta say. He is a bit harder to love than some of the more silly looking characters like Fang Man or Slush Head because he looks so... well... evil... but great figure. Bring on Karatti!

    Yes, he's really menacing. I never got much interest in the character, because I never owned one as a kid (like most figures of the last waves).

    But the quality and the sculpt convinced me. I'll keep him.

    Agreed! I think the Hordak feet would have been perfect for Classics Snake Face and it would have given a great nod to the Staction which still looks far superior. The Skeletor feet are used WAY TOO MUCH for being as distinctive as they are. It's the painted toenails on the boots that really kill it for me.
