    Without spoiling anything:

    I like the Unnamed One and the idea of there being a powerful villain from that particular species.

     
    That said, I think this really should have been the second unmasked head for the Unnamed one. Who's face makes more sense to be on Snake Mountain than the creator of the Snake Men.

    Based on the 1987 Style Guide and the Icon Heroes sculpt, I'm calling it one of the Lords of Destruction, the primal god-beasts of chaos and ruin that plagued Eternia until they were imprisoned by the Ancient Wizards in what later became Snake Mountain.

    Or probably a beast (like Panthor), maybe the Snake Mountain's builder's pet.

    Maybe it's one of many faces associated with Serpos (assuming the snake is another face). I'd like them to make a Snake Mountain Man, but since he's not the UNO and I do kind of have other figures I've been waiting for longer that I'd like to see happen too, I probably won't be requesting him as much.

    It looks like a cross between My Pet Monster, Alf, and a twisted Fraggle. I think it'd make for a terrible figure.

    Why does it have to belong to anybody? Why couldn't it just be a scary design meant to scare off potential intruders?

    Personally, I'd prefer it to be an homage to some great previous evil leader/monster rather than just a scary face.
    Here's how to end the line:
    2015 200x Mini-Sub: Evilseed, Calix, Prahvus, Horde Wraith, Miro, Veena, Hawke

    2016 line: LordMasque, Vultak, Granita, Despara, Dylamug, Hunga, General Sunder,Tuskador, Crita, Lodar, Quakke, Darius

    Quarterly items: Sagitar, Stridor, Night Stalker

    I always thought it was a juxtaposition of the skull from Castle Greyskull.
    One Gum Drop to rule them all, One Gum Drop to find them,
    One Gum Drop to bring them all and in the sweetness bind them

    Before the line ends, we need a Snake Mountain playset! The bio should clear things up nicely.

    You know what bugged me for years was that this giant cave hole at the bottom just sits there where any figure can "crawl" through. I used to have an extra rubber snake from the Horde playset and I would fill him up with a sock and just park him at the entrance. (It was "Snake" Mountain, wasn't it?)

    Then when the Power & Honor book came out I finally realized that it was originally going to be an Indiana Jones style boulder, which would have been really cool. I hope that if MOTUC ever does Snake Mountain like they did Grayskull, they'll completely ignore the original playset and come up with something approximating the Filmation or 200X version.

    The original concept can be remade as OO-la-la-lar's "Jungle Cave Hideout" or whatever.

    It sort of reminds me of the creatures from the movie "The Dark Crystal"

    Because classics is all about expanding the mythos. Why not have this be a character.
     
    It could still be the unamed one's actual face underneath his 2 masked heads.

    I agree. I don't need a figure for every building. It's like bad fanfic and not very original, just copying someone elses idea.

    I would be happy with a Snake Mountain man type figure for sure. I am honestly not really sure who's face that is in my own little mind. I wonder if they have a plan in this cannon?

    Why does it have to be a facade? Why can't it be a LIVING mountain (with multiple faces) or a building hollowed out the the carcasses of past monstrous giants that are magically fused?

    What if UNO
     
    magically created the mountain of out beast to be the "womb" from which the snakemen are born? Their home would have a more sinister purpose; UNO could subconsciously communicate with his minions to carry out his grand plan in his absents. During Skeletor's time, UNO could have keep tabs on the the Overlord of Evil and may have influenced him is small ways. When Cobra Khan enters Snake Mountain after being a "free" snakeman, the mountain compelled him to free Hssss.
