Icon Heroes has unveiled the final look of their Masters of the Universe Snake Mountain Polystone Environment Statue. We’ve seen the statue at some shows, most recently Powercon 2013. Now Icon Heroes has revealed new info. The statue is due out in the fourth quarter of the year. It will sell for $299.99. At 16 pounds and 16″ high, this is a very big item, and one that’s going to look great with the previously released Castle Grayskull Statue.
Snake Mountain. Evil Stronghold of Skeletor. When King Hssss and his cold blooded army invaded Eternia, they sought to booster their forces by freeing the mighty Preternian serpent deity Serpos from his underground prison. Together, the Snake Army and Serpos conquered much of Preternia, devastating the lands and enslaving all who got in their way. Eventually, the combined powers of the Elders were used against Serpos, tapping into the magic of the Star Seed to turn the great three headed serpent God into stone. Serpos’ remains eventually became known as “Snake Mountain” and would be used as a base of operations for many mages and warlocks throughout the centuries including Skeletor and his evil warriors who used Snake Mountain as a fortress to attack Randor and his Master of the Universe during the time of He-Man.
Designed by Nate Baertsch and the Four Horsemen, this statue draws from many different past references of Snake Mountain. From the Filmation series comes the “Blood Falls”, while the vintage toy playset influenced the acid lake, several monster heads throughout, the prisoner’s ledge, the bridge, the computer station, and the gate atop the taller mountain.
This massive Snake Mountain statue measures approximately 18″ W x 16″ H x 13″ D and weighs approximately 16 pounds!
