Funko Pops are hit or miss for me. If it’s a character from something super obscure, I’ll pick it up. Or if it’s a tribute to one a late entertainment icon, it’ll get a spot on my shelf. Gilda Radner’s Roseanne Roseannadanna is one such case.

Though not necessarily obscure, Snake Mountain is one such Funko Pop that piques my interest. The playset was top-of-the-line 1980’s excellence for many reasons. Along with Castle Grayskull, the Ghostbusters’ firehouse.

And… Barbie’s dream house (don’t judge) was a symbol of a great childhood.

Now the purple playset has gotten the Funko treatment with a surprising amount of detail.

This release also packages in a Skeletor Pop. He appears to be a standard version of the figure, but the ram’s skull on the Havoc Staff is silver. This release is due out in stores in August 2021. You can pre-order it now over at Entertainment Earth.

The original Snake Mountain playset was arguably better than Castle Greyskull. It had an amazing color scheme and a lot of features. There was a trap door at the top with a net underneath. When the playset was fully open, there was a bridge that would connect the two halves.

The mountain itself was sculpted with many terrible faces hidden along the rocky face. The large goblin face on the front had a moving mouth. The best feature, of course, was the microphone and reverberating speaker.

Yup! That thing was a blast! Even after I’d grown out of He-Man toys, I took the mic out of the playset and kept using it. A version came out for the ‘Classics’ line, but it was quite expensive and lacked the microphone. Why bother, eh?

What other classic toys from the ’80s and ’90s should get the Funko Pop treatment? Let us know in the comments.
