Let’s take a deep dive into each of our 3 new Snake Men that will be the first to be released in 2023. We are using Vintage images and artwork as stand ins to illustrate our point since no official images have been released.
Rattlor was first released by Mattel in 1986. Unlike most of the previous MOTU figures that came before him, with commonly reused parts, Rattlor was unique in that it had a completely new body, new tail, new head and popping neck feature! His chest sculpt was all new as well and his body was covered in a scaly texture. The snake attack action feature was activated by pressing a button on his back, which was hidden with the rubber tail, made the spring-loaded elongated neck pop up. If you notice, Rattlor had an especially long torso, and that was by design to accommodate the elongated neck inside. Rattlor also included a Rattling sound that was made by shaking him, so mimic the noise of a Rattle snake. He was packed with a burgundy snake shaped staff. Will the new Origins version include Rattlor’s trademark action features? Only time will tell!
According to the Wiki Grayskull:
He first appears in the “King of the Snake Men” MOTU minicomic, where he and Tung Lashor are called from another dimension by King Hiss. When they appear, Kobra Khan says they “are from the Evil Horde on Etheria!”, but both Snake Men swear allegiance again to their former leader King Hiss.
He also appears in the She-Ra: Princess of Power TV series as a member of the Evil Horde and, in later episodes, one of Skeletor’s Evil Warriors. The original MOTU cartoon had come to a close by the time his figure was released.Rattlor | Wiki Grayskull | Fandom
Tung Lashor, first introduced by Mattel in 1986, was the first of the Snake Men to be released. He was made of all new parts and resembled the look of a poison dart frog, more than a snake. He featured a unique 3 figured hand design that resembled a tree frog. His bright pink and purple colored body really stood out and he sported a green Snake Men logo on his chest. He come with his own distinct action feature, his signature lashing tongue! This action feature was activated by rolling the wheel on his back and it made the tongue dart in and out of Tung Lashor’s mouth. He came with a purple snake staff and teal colored dragon fly cross bow.
According to the Wiki Grayskull
Tung Lashor was introduced into the MOTU toyline in 1986. He first appears in the “King of the Snake Men” minicomic, in which he and Rattlor are called from another dimension by King Hiss. When they appear, Kobra Khan says they “are from the Evil Horde on Etheria!”, but both Snake Men swear allegiance again to their former leader King Hiss, explaining that after his banishment they felt they had nowhere to go other than to serve the Horde.
Although the Snake Men as a group never appear on the toy-line’s accompanying cartoon series Tung Lashor appears in She-Ra as a member of the Evil Horde. He is one of several newer characters from the toy line to be featured on the She-Ra’s Princess of Power cartoon series in order to promote the toy in the absence of the He-Man series, discontinued to make way for She-Ra.Tung Lashor | Wiki Grayskull | Fandom
Kobra Khan was released by Mattel in 1984. He was actually originally considered a member of the Evil Warriors as he often made apperances as one of Skeletor’s henchmen on the 1980’s Filmation cartoon. He was later considered one of the Snake Men following their introduction to the line in 1986. Unlike the other two Snake Men covered above, Kobra Khan did have some shared parts to the previous MOTU figures. He was made of the same monster type arms and legs as Skeletor. But he did however have a brand-new torso and head sculpt. As a matter of fact, his head and torso was a completely new design as it allowed kids to lift off the head and fill the torso with water. By then replacing the head and pressing it down, Kobra Khan would release his “venom” spray feature misting out the water thru an opening in his mouth! His torso’s design featured a scaly design with brown scale straps and an all new belt design as well. Kobra Khan came with a simple red laser pistol, the same as came packed Zodac. Will the new Origins version include the “venom” spray action feature? Can’t wait to find out!
According to the Wiki Grayskull:
Kobra Khan was introduced into the Masters of the Universe toy line in 1984. His action figure’s special feature is to spray water. The figure’s head is removable, and the hollow torso can be filled with water, so that when the head is back in place, it can be pushed down to spray water from its mouth.
Kobra Khan appears on the cartoon shortly after his figure was released. He is one of the few Evil Warriors on the cartoon to be portrayed in a darker, more serious manner as opposed to being used for comedy value. He is usually paired with Webstor and the two of them are often seen to work as a duo. They are first paired in the episode “Disappearing Dragons” which portrays Khan as the leader of the two. He is portrayed as a sly, scheming and sullen character, capable of taking on numerous opponents at once with his sleep mist. Never fearful or bumbling around the Heroic Characters, his low, whisper-like, hissing voice provided by Lou Scheimer enhances the portrayal of him as a reserved and sinister character.Kobra Khan | Wiki Grayskull | Fandom
