Mattel has officially started taking pre-orders for the Mega Blocks Snake Mountain playset. Made out of over 3,800 pieces, the set recreates the former home of the Snake Men on the planet Eternia. Now used by the evil forces of Skeletor, Snake Mountain is one your stop shop for villainous happenings.
The lavafall is recreated with translucent blocks. When the playset is opened, it measures 24″ wide, which may be wider than the original ’80s toy. Sadly, the Mega Blocks version does not come with the voice-changing microphone. The set is comparable in price to the previously-released Castle Grayskull kit. Snake Mountain is $321.00 and can be purchased directly through Mattel Creations. Skeletor’s lair is expected to ship on or before August 31st.
Skeletor’s stronghold is back in a brand-new form. The MEGA MOTU Snake Mountain is now yours to build. Authenticity was key in recreating a buildable version of the infamous hideout of Eternia’s Most Wanted. Our designers captured every awesome aesthetic and even added a few MOTU easter eggs. Piece together every devious threat of Snake Mountain, from the demon head and lavafall to the prisoner shackles and notorious Bone Throne. That muscle-bound oaf, He-Man, won’t know what hit him! Snake Mountain wouldn’t be the evil fortress it is without Skeletor and his henchmen. Recreate classic MOTU battles with six highly detailed, super posable figures complete with display stands and swappable weapons.
Aside from recreating the classic Masters of the Universe playset, the Mega Blocks version comes with the following figures:
- Thunder Punch He-Man
- Dragon Blaster Skeletor
- Trap Jaw
- Ram Man
Mega Block MotU figures can still be found at Target and Walmart. Castle Grayskull is another matter. Expect to pay a premium for that set now, sometimes closer to $400-$500.
