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.

Five Below Badness!

Not “bad” meaning “bad” but “bad” meaning “good”!I shat myself when I saw Ultimate Stormy behind a couple of other Ultimate Joe figures at our local Five Below! Wow! Still can’t believe I was lucky enough to find this one. Although I think these are popping up in a lot of other places including Marshalls and a store I’ve never heard of called Tuesday Morning?A big shout out to John over at the Clawful Punch for giving me the heads up about  these showing up at FB’s ;)tLoose pics coming soon!
