A close up of Reptilax in this two panel illustration reveals the details of Reptilax’s strike against this warrior’s shield and a gun emplacement on the Snake Lair itself. The Eternia playset has a twin cannon mounted on the top and it looks like the Snake Lair is following suite.


We can also see Reptilax’s axe in this wider shot and the scale detail on the warrior’s armor.

Snake Lair Concept

September 30, 2023 UPDATE: Exclusive Images – Snake Lair Complete

m.t.dioart has finished his Snake Lair masterpiece and shared exclusive images with us! The Snake Lair looks absolutely stunning and it’s amazing to see the final concept come to life! He was also placed MOTU Origins Snake Men in and around the Lair so we can see the scale compared to the figures.


Getting a full view into the inside of the Lair, you can see all of the fin detail m.t.dioart pours into his work! The dungeon came out great and we love the skeleton on the wall!


The technique that m.t.dioart used to create the stone and water effects are second to none! Another skeleton also appears in the moat outside of the castle, which makes us think that once you are thrown in the depts of the dungeon, you check in but you don’t check out!


As Rattloe and Kobra Khan are devising a plan inside the Lair, we can see Tung Lashor guarding the entrance, which we can see a small piece of. The moat came out beatifully and it actually looks like real water, which is most likely muck around the Lair.


Looking from the inside out, we can see the drawbridge door with the torch lighting effects. The Cobra snake head and the smaller snakes flanking the centerpiece complete the look on the outside of the Lair. All of the sculping and time and effeort m.t.dioart put into the Lair has paid off as the final result is absolutely beautiful!

Reptilax is another figure Axel designed using a character who appeared in the vintage mini-comics. And he’s also appeared in Origins materials – both on Kol-Darr’s card and in the Camo Khan comic as well as the card art. However, other than parts from He-Man and King Hiss, he requires parts from Tuvar (Two Bad has been teased but yet to be released and Laser Light Skeletor plus he uses parts from Fang Man.


From the back you can see his cool tail!


Repilax is a great addition to the Snake Men army and is one very unique figure!


Reptilax can seen in multiple locations of the Camo Khan Card art. Illustrated standing by King Hiss’ throne and also coming thru a portal with Camo Khan, Lord Gr’asp & Terroar along with Reptilax, an unproduced Classics concept, look ready to attack.
