Mattel’s MOTUC Snake Face
April 13, 2013

 Cold-blooded and even more cold-hearted, this sinister serpent turns his enemies to stone, then slithers away without a second thought! Snake Face™ may be able to disguise his true nature for a short time, but eventually he will reveal his hideous face, so this fan-demanded figure arrives with interchangeable “snakes in and snakes out” look. Also comes with pop-out chest plates, removable chest snakes that can plug into his armor, serpent staff and serpent shield.

This April sees an expansion in the ranks of our Snake Men.  Snake Face brings his own special brand of terror to your collection as a member of King Hssss’ inner circle.

As you know by now the Masters Classics line does not include the action feature of their vintage counterparts.  So Mattel, the designers and the Four Horsemen have to come up with clever ways to replicate those features.  Snake Face replicates the pop out snake feature by having 2 heads, one with snakes and one without, as well as a couple of pop-off panels you can add additional snakes to for the torso.

There are some great additional details suck as the head with the snake retracted have long tails hanging out the back of the helmet.   Snake Face also has snakes wrapped around each arm, but the Horsemen sculpted it in a way that it retains the arm articulation.

Snake Face is the April 2013 MOTUC Club Eternia figure.   He will be available on on April 15.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
