* Like the vintage King Hiss figure, Jake "The Snake" Roberts doesn't initially appear as menacing as he truly is underneath his disguise. He's wearing some incredible black and purple battle armor with the Snake Men logo on it. The armor is two pieces (front and back) and the Snake Men logo can pop out, although there's nothing to swap it with. Other than that, he looks like your typical 1980s wrestler. Well, he does have armored gauntlets, too, but otherwise he's just a guy, right?
* The likeness is pretty good to Roberts and looks pretty intimidating. The face might be caricatured a but but the glare and the hair is dead on.
* Like the vintage King Hiss, Jake "The Snake" Roberts' exterior appearance is just a facade! Underneath lies a terrifying Snake Man ready to poison his opponents! Yes, remove the battle armor and you can see this awesome scaly paint job that covers his chest!
* Jake's face is also a ruse! It's a mask that pops off to reveal a terrifying, snaky visage! This is pretty creepy, right? He'll be right at home with the rest of your Snake Men!
* Jake "The Snake" also comes with his python, Damien! He's pretty cool, fairly rubbery, and can wrap around Jake in multiple ways!
* Behind each standard MOTWWEU release is a minicomic of sorts. It's
only 4 pages (cover, bio, comic, and back page with cross sell art) but
it looks cool and does offer some cool information on the role of Jake "The Snake" Roberts in WWEternia. The art is very reminiscent of the vintage MOTU minicomics and you get a short
comic of Jake "The Snake" turning on the Skull King.
Another Epic figure in this series? Yes indeed! While Jake "The Snake" Roberts' hair is very un- MOTUish the rest of the figure is an awesome tribute to the Snake Men! This guy is loaded with cool MOTU references and is really just a fun figure. I've always loved figures that had a disguise component and Jake "The Snake" is one of the coolest in recent memory! I'm a big fan of this one and he's well worth tracking down. I hope we get the Snake Men represented in MOTU Origins as well, as they tend to get neglected in many MOTU lines. This gives me some hope they won't be neglected in Origins.

This guy looks awesome. So much fun with this He-Man/Wrestling mash up.ReplyDelete
It's been a way cooler and more expansive line than I originally imagined it would be. I do hope it continues past the next series.Delete
