G.I. Joe Retaliation(no..not ROC..i wish)-Kamakura

Kamakura is a character that has been gradually growing on me.I didn’t read any of the comics he was in and most of what i know about him is from Wiki and the animated series Valor Vs. Venom.I do however like the idea of Snake Eyes having an apprentice because let’s face it-who’s gonna take over  the position of  G.I. Joe Ninja/Commando if  Snake Eyes ever gets captured or even worse,killed in battle?Kamakura is that’s who……take that…….so there…Cobra baddies!Sorry,got a little carried away.Anyways so yeah i really like Kamakura and hope to read up on his character a little more.I already own the more comic accurate Spy Troops version of him and while i love the ROC version,chances are i’ll probably never own one.So i snagged this one up loose and i’m really, really diggin’ it. Believe it or not,i still haven’t seen Retaliation and was wondering if Kamakura makes an appearance  at anytime during the movie.If not,he should definitely make an appearance in the next series of Joe films!

G.I. Joe A.R.A.H. 1989-Snake Eyes V.3 5/21-5/26

Here’s a Snake Eyes I picked up a while ago on Ebay,loose  with no file card or accessories.I was always hesitant about picking up this version of  Snake Eyes because it really didn’t have any ties to my child hood.By the time this Snake Eyes released,i was slowly making the transition from action figures  into comic books,baseball cards and video games so G.I. Joe toys weren’t on my radar as much.With that being said i really like this version of Snake Eyes!He almost has a Spider-Man feel or vibe to him,not sure what it is.This version also came with a ton of cool accessories like a blow gun,nun-chuks and a pistol with a silencer.Looking at my collection the other day i realized that i have 5 different Snake Eyes figures and have ultimately decided to start collecting him exclusively.I think there are about 60 versions of him so i’ll have to be in it for the long haul LOL!Wish me luck  😉
