With the news of Terroar and Lord Gr’asp NOT being Walmart exclusives, we are seeing other Snake Men popping up on various online retailers websites. Back in April 2024, Vypor showed up out of nowhere on Amazon so it’s great to find Reptilax’s listing on Amazon as well! We are not sure when the figure will be available to purchase so we’ll keep our eyes open for when he goes up for sale. Seeing many other online retailers is a blessing as many collector’s were bummed about when Lord Gr’asp and Terroar were bought up in mere seconds.

Reptilax is one of Axel Gimenez’s deep cut Snake Men and it’s amazing to see him finally created and carded in the MOTU Origins line! Vypor were character concepts, developed by the one and only Axel Gimemez, and were unproduced in the MOTU Classics era. We got wind that Reptilax was coming to the MOTU Origins line and he was revealed as part of the MOTU March Madness 2024 event where he was officially revealed and put up for preorder! The MOTU Origins line will be breathing new life his concept and we have some images of what the figure looks like in-package.

Reptilax has a cool head sculpt featuring horns in the middle of his skull, eyes without irises, and an open mouth look with a green tongue. His armor has yellow dots that are set off from his black base color and he features a Snake Men logo in the middle. The body color is more of a peach color and he comes with green weapons and accessories.

Deep Cut Snake Men Teases

Axel Gimenez is recognized for his dynamic art style and his ability to capture the iconic characters and settings of the MOTU universe. His illustrations have brought new life to the adventures of He-Man, Skeletor, and their allies and enemies. In the prolific days of the Masters of the Universe Classics era, Axel had come up with countless concepts for figures that were never produced as actual figures and the MOTU Origins lines is providing a canvas for his work to come alive in plastic. In fact, three out of the 6 figures in his latest image he posted to Instagram are either teased or being produced in the MOTU Origins line. This article is meant to keep a running log of the deep cut teases and official announcements for brand new figures making it into the Masters of the Universe Origins line.

Snake Men

The most recent teases we’ve seen come from Lady Slither’s card art! Below is a full view of the front card back art that features Vypor and Reptilax (along with Strettch Nekk and Fang-Or)

Reptilax

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. With Reptilax making an appearance on Lady Slither’s card art will make his second tease.

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. While he could be a way for Mattel to work their way to Fang Man and is a reuse of Tuvar parts, which gives them more use out of the eventual Two-Bad figure which itself has limited re-uses.

The image of Reptilax on the white background are the photos that precede the images on the black backgrounds and you can usually spot any design changes between the two. Aside from the glossy paint, the figure looks materially the same.
