After MattyCollector’s 2015 SDCC MattyPalooza panel many MOTU fans were wondering what the future of the 200x King Hsss in Snake Form head/torso would be. Last year fans were told that the extra part that was shown in the 2014 display case would ship with a regular MOTUC figure later in 2015. No mention was made of this accessory was made in the 2015 panel and fans were starting to ask questions about the future of this ssssinister body part.
Today, Kim from MattyCollector took to the Matty message boards to tell fans what their new plans for King Hssss would be:

I know you guys have been wondering about King Hssss and now that I have some concrete answers I can share what’s going on.Yes, the new torso was scheduled to be released with Buzz Saw Hordak. However, when we tried to combine the two we found out that it wouldn’t be possible to do so due to costs. We tried a few different options (alternate packaging, higher price point, etc.), but none of these choices made sense (business or common).
So here’s what we’ve decided to do: King Hssss will still be released in 2015 but he will arrive as a complete figure. Accessories, alternate head, another set of legs…it will all be there. After reviewing all the different factors that went into making this product this was the only thing that made sense as well as the right thing to do. We know that promises were made regarding how you were supposed to receive this figure but ultimately…it just wasn’t possible. It didn’t sit well with any of us to force you to pay a premium for this item so we decided to put the power in your hands.
As a sub holder you will not be locked in to purchasing this figure. King Hssss will be offered during the month of November as an add on item. If you want him, he’ll be available during Early Access; if not, you won’t be obligated to purchase. All remaining stock not purchased will be offered during our November All Access sale.
There will be pictures posted of the bendy headed Snake Men leader at a later date, but I didn’t want to wait any longer to give you a heads up.
