    It is interesting to look forward to SDCC now. I hope Mattel MOTU team has a big presence there. It seems that virtually everything that has been revealed is now out. So Im hoping for reveals for Q3/4 at SDCC. We know that Vintage is going to be MC only. But hopefully the Cartoon Collection is continuing at retail with a Vintage few exclusives like they did this year (Reptilax, Vypor, Horde Trooper Prime).
    Its also likely they will reveal the Snake Lair at SDCC.

    Snake Lair MOTU Origins SDCC 2024 Crowdfund Details - Toy Habits

    Its cool to hear some discussion about the Snake Lair. I hope it is around $200, but Im expecting more.
    I have always suspected that Snake Preist and Red Tail will come with the set.
    It would be a disaster for this set not to come with the throne! It does sound like TH details are mostly guesswork?

    I’d be shocked if there’s not a version of Lady Slither in at the base tier. A recolor or without the legs or something to make it different.

    Unless it's significantly bigger/more complex than Snake Mountain/Greyskull I can't justify more than 200 for it. And even then it better come with some sweet figures. Not just chameleon guards, who I do think are cool.

    I’m not a playset person, so I’m bummed I’ll have to get this just to get the figures but that’s life I guess

    I'm all for original Huntara getting more stories, but can they use her, as a Filmation-only character?

    They did it with Kol-Darr, but also.. now we have the cartoon collection so either way I think their bases are covered.

    For 35 years I thought it was "cool but crude".
