    With the mention of snake lair, I'm hoping they make the Medusa lookin' Snake Goddess.

    A pity that her followup episode, The Silaxian Wars, never got beyond half-finished storyboards

    I’m all in for another playset, but more Snakemen? Yeesh. I’d rather see the Horde Fright Zone.

    Who wants to tell him?

    I picked the fright zone during the vote but if I could go back I think I would change it. My feeling now is that the fright zone really should be a mass retail release. Save the crowd funds for bigger better stuff.

    Was there a release of this one already? 1000000784.jpg

    Thanks to Teela, Raphael be dual wielding now

    Would've been nice if Gorgon and Naga came with weapons but overall a pretty good set imho. Still looks like He-Man is wielding an earwig butt.

    There hasnt quite been a Medusa Snake Goddess. Lady Slither is kindof that. But of course Medusa snake hair and features are more in line with Snake Face. So the original point is a fair one.

    But that wasnt the choice. Currently its very unlikely well get ANY playset at mass retail.
    If there was any indication then some were possible at mass retail, then likely the Fright Zone wouldnt have even been an option for that crowdfund.

    What I’m saying is it’s retail or nothing. if it’s been shopped around and retail does not want it then I’m fine to skip it, not a big deal would now rather have the Doom Tower or something else altogether.

    Thats the point. I dont think retail will pick up any playsets now. It seems like they are not even taking any 20-50 items (The Collector is a Fan channel exclusive right?). They are barely picking up individual figures.
    So the strategy for the Playset choice wasnt about what might be avl at retail, cos none of them will.

    No, but I know Taylor Swift's "got a long list Starbucks lovers, they'll tell you I'm insane"

    Or Boy George's "Lovin would be easy if your colors would light my dreams, they're golden dreams, they're golden dreeeeams"
