We covered this breaking story in our previous articles Kobra Kahn & MOTU Origins Snake Men Coming in 2023! and Snake Men coming to MOTU Origins in 2023! .Our friends at @canaldosrosmineiros revealed to us that Kobra Khan, Rattlor, Tung Lashor were coming to Origins in 2023! Now we are also reporting that more Snake Men will be joining then! ! Unveiled during the CANAL DOS ROSMINEIROS live stream, they revealed the first of the Snake Men coming to Origins in 2023 and they also revealed the additional Snake Men – King Hiss, Snake Face and Sssqueeze were also coming to Origins later in 2023! This is very super exciting news for fans after a long week of amazing reveals by Mattel! Fans will have all their Snake Men next year! Please note, that this has not yet been confirmed by Mattel nor any official images released, but our friends at @canaldosrosmineiros were right about the She-Ra and Beast Man Masterverse teases, so there is a really good chance we get these Snake Men figures!
Let’s take a deep dive into each of of these additional new Snake Men that will be joining the Origins line next year in 2023! We are using Vintage images and artwork as stand ins to illustrate our point since no official images have been released.
First introduced to the Masters of the Universe line in 1986, King Hiss was the leader of the of the Snake Men. He looked like a human, but underneath, he was really a snake man. The King Hiss action figure was made of several parts of a human head / torso and arm shell pieces that would clip onto the figure to conceal the slithering snake body underneath. His legs were human shaped as well but did not transform. He wore green armor with golden yellow gloves. His accessories included a red shield and a green snake staff. This was the same staff as came packed with most of the other Snake Men. King Hiss was an all-new figure sculpt due to the transforming nature of the character and was released much later in the line, when there were tooling dollars to pull off such a new character.
King Hiss (also known as King Hssss) is a character in the Masters of the Universe franchise. He was the villainous leader of the Snake Men and one of He-Man‘s more powerful enemies. Although he never appears in the original animated series by Filmation, which had ceased production by the time the figure was released. Hiss makes a belated animated debut in the 2002 relaunch of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe by Mike Young Productions, this time as the major villain of the second season.King Hiss | Wiki Grayskull | Fandom
Sssqueeze has got to be the most unusual of the Snake Men, with his large snake like wrapping arms! Released by Mattel in 1987, Sssqueeze with bright lime green skin color and large wrapping arms was a blast for kids to play with! His arms were made of a flexbile rubber with a wire wrapping around inside that allowed you to pose him in fun squeezing positions. Watch out He-Man or your gonna get the SSSQUEEZE!! Just like the other Snake Men, this figure too was a totally new sculpt. Squeeze did include the spring-loaded waste and was wearing purple chest armor with the green Snake Men logo. He came with an extra-long purple snake pet. This is one character I currently don’t own in my personal collection, but now after researching him, I am going to have to pick one up!
According to the Wiki Grayskull:
Sssqueeze first appears in the minicomic “Revenge of the Snake Men!“, where King Hiss summons him and Snake Face from the dimension where the Snake Men are trapped. He gets little character development, with Snake Face‘s powers being the main focus of the comic. Sssqueeze also appears in the minicomic “Energy Zoids“, where Rotar takes his long arm and uses him as a living mace. Sssqueeze also appears in the Marvel Comics series, first in issue #8, where he is depicted as a member of the Evil Horde, and later he makes a cameo in issue #12 as a member of the recently arrested Snake Men.Sssqueeze | Wiki Grayskull | Fandom
Snake Face was also a very unique character and all new sculpt for the vintage line. Released in 1987, this most gruesome of the Snake Men Warriors featured an eye & mouth popping snakes feature which would turn his enemies to stone! Activated by the action lever on his back, the snakes would pop out of his mouth, eyes and shoulders! Due to this action feature, Snake Face did not have the waist twist feature, nor neck articulation. His arms even had snakes wrapping around them. His body was a completely new sculpt with intricate details on his chest and arms. He also sported the Snake Men logo on his chest. Snake Face came packaged with the usual snake staff in green, and a snake themed shield as well.
According to the Wiki Grayskull:
Snake Face first appears in the minicomic “Revenge of the Snake Men!“, where King Hiss summons him and Sssqueeze from the dimension where the Snake Men are trapped. Snake Face’s powers are the main focus of the comic, since he uses them against Prince Adam, Extendar and The Sorceress, who disguises herself as Queen Marlena. He-Man uses his Power Sword to revert the effect and, not long after that, in a battle in Viper Tower, He-Man turns all the Snake Men into stone, by reflecting Snake Face’s power of petrifaction back at them. Snake Face also appears in the minicomic “Energy Zoids“, where he transforms Rotar into stone to capture him and later makes him fight against the new Evil Warrior, Twistoid.Snake Face | Wiki Grayskull | Fandom
