    Snake Mountain Before full vintage figures finished???

    Ok so was listening to the Council of the First Ones podcast and Scott stated that he would like to see all vintage figures finished before we see a Snake Mountain. That would mean a wait of 2 years! I dont think its wise to wait that long. Next year should be Snake Mountain.
    I just think if we have to wait 2 years for Snake Mountain production costs will rise too much to make it viable and we wont get it at all.
    So lets take the poll.

    The figures are far more important than another playset. What does a playset matter if you don't have the figures for it?

    I want a Snake Mountain now. There are going to be 3 versions of Castle Grayskull and there's only been 1 of Snake Mountain. I already have most of the Evil Warriors I want (except Two Bad but I'm sure he's coming soon) so give me a Classics Snake Mountain with working microphone so I can drop my dope beats as my villains drop megaton bombs on those pathetic Heroic Warriors!

    The Evil Wartiors are my favorite faction, but I don't want a Snake Mountain and I won't buy one. It's a mountain in media and the playset would never look right...

    I'm more interested in Snake Mountain than I am Castle Grayskull, so the sooner the better for me.

    I voted "Yes! Do it now!" because a playset is pre-order based so it won't take away anything from the figures. It adds so much more to the line and makes MOTUC closer to being a well rounded all inclusive line!

    Prices will only continue to rise, so I'm in favor of Snake Mountain before it becomes unreasonably priced.

    The more playsets the better. I'd like to strike while the iron is still relatively hot. Snake Mountain in 2014!

    While I'd love to get it, I could I've without it.
    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 vote for it to be done, not necessarily straight away or this year of course. Like BJH mentioned, there's only been 1 made thus far and 3 of CG. Making a SM doesn't take anything away from figures currently being produced so bring it on.

    So hard to decide. On a recent episode of Gooble, they discussed the rising prices of petroleum and the direct effect on plastic prices. The longer they wait for Snake Mountain, the higher the price will be. I look at Snake Mountain as a fan problem. There is really no way they can please people with the look. If they do straight Filmation, fans of the toy will be upset. If they do the toy version, Filmation fans will be upset. If they do a hybrid like the DC two pack art, then both sides will be upset, though to a lesser degree. They claim CG did very well, so it may bode well for a Snake Mountain, but I suppose I would rather they make more figures than another large playset. I don't know. I am very conflicted.

    If the Snake Mountain released looks even remotely like the playset we got in the 80's count me out. I made it work as a kid but as an adult it kinda sux!

    Its an interesting response so far and I have submitted a question to Mattel, in the next round of questions, highlighting this thread.
    Its good to let them know how we all are feeling about getting a Snake Mountain. Strike whilst the irons hot!

    I think there are enough figures to warrant a playset. They should also consider playsets for the Horde, and a less girly Crystal Castle?

    I'm not buying a Classics Grayskull, I won't be buying a Snake Mt. Way too much money for me to spend on something that will sit in a box, because I don't play with my figures, nor do I pose them in a diorama. Not to mention for the scale, they are better suited for the Mini Masters than Classics.

    However, I will be buying the Icon Heroes statues of Grayskull & Snake mt. I can get both for cheaper than the price of Grayskull alone, and they take up much less room.
    Recent.... Arrow, Tung Lashor & Bow
    Coming.... Mermista
    Wanted.... NA She-Ra, Double Mischief, Jitsu....
    Considering....
    Needed.... Dragstor

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

    I think a Snake Mountain would be incredible. I only hope that if they decide to do it, they learn from the CGS shenanigans. I'd also (eventually) like to see a redux of the Fright Zone, or my personal favorite, the Slime Pit.
