G.I. Joe Retaliation – Ultimate Snake Eyes

There really are too many Snake  Eyes figures, and this one  would have remained on the pegs had I owned the 25th  Ann. version, which manages to  capture the look of Snake Eyes V.2  very nicely. I don’t have the 25th Ann. version so this one was a must-add, considering the price and availability. It pisses me off, though, that Hasbro wasn’t able to add a more accurate head sculpt instead of just opting for the repainted Ninja Duel head. Every time I look at this figure I think about what could have been. A proper head sculpt and this figure would have gotten an easy 10.I could try to switch this head out for another one but I’m not one to mess with the integrity of a figure. If It came with the head sculpt,It stays with the head sculpt.Enjoy the pics!



Sorry about some of the pics being so dark. Snake Eyes is one of the hardest figures to photograph because of the all black uniform.Any suggestions on how to better photograph dark figures are welcome.

  1. Very nice rendition of Snake Eyes, I love his V2 look and this one nails it, even with the complaints about the head. Timber looks great as well.

  2. Not a bad Snake Eyes Tony and you can’t beat the price right? You should try taking a picture of him with a white or light grey background it helps to make a darker colored action figure stand out a little better and wont be nearly as dark if that tip helps any. : )
