About this deal

Then spend thirty dollars on one figure from a fifty dollar set instead of waiting for the set to become more available and then blaming scalpers as the problem. Build your own Snake Mountain with this set, complete with 3,802 bricks and six micro action figures. And there is also just a photo of a Mattel box, but if you read closely, you will notice in the description that is clearly reads “ Mega Construx Masters of the Universe Snake Mountain“. I daresay I even prefer what they did with the Heroes line with sporty gray and orange boxes to this style.

I had Snake Mountain as a child, but this set departs from the vintage design enough to where it doesn’t hit me the same way that Grayskull does. As revealed in early, uncolored prototype form at the last Power-Con, a Mega Construx Snake Mountain playset will soon arrive for Masters of the Universe.Don't really care about the generic looking ninja figure, though, nor do I need another Webstor or Battle Armor He-man (even if he does have a different chest decal this time). But people who put pupils in the eyes of a Man-E-Faces Mega Mini Figure pay attention to details, and those ugly nibs are a problem. So be prepared to be on standby to assist quite often and for your child to take some breaks to complete this cool looking kit. There are ways to use the tools available to get some of what you want but you also have to accept the compromise that from a brick based toy manufacturer there are going to be brick based toy sets and some of what you want are going to come with those sets. Rebuilding that set in the middle of working on Snake Mountain let me see the true difference of what is going on.

I think those who are happy with the smaller more affordable set may be the same who complained that Grayskull and Snake Mountain were too expensive while those who think the set is too small are the ones who were happy with the others.Inside Snake Mountain you can stow some very cool display pieces like the bone chair (how cool is that! This set looks absolutely stunning in the classic purple deco with the large green snake winding around it! Faithfully recreated to summon destructive evil, this adult builder set harnesses all the dark magic you remember, including the cavern entrance, lavafall, suspended rocking bridge, prisoner shackles, monster pit with tentacles, coiling passageway that leads to the mountain's summit, trap door, break-away wall, computer console and, of course, Dragon Blaster Skeletor's iconic Bone Throne and table. I will use my apple pencil and color the images from the inner sleeves on my iPad when it snows or something…I did this with the Castle Grayskull art. I have some factors to point out, the way to hold the parts that open the mountain, they are still very fragile, just like they are in castle grayskull.
