I’m at least a casual fan of GI Joe. I’ve got some nostalgia for it, and the toys were some of my favorites as a kid because of how articulated they were. They’re the reason why my favorite scale for action figures is 3 3/4th inches.
And like most kids, I thought ninjas were cool. And as much as a lot of modern GI Joe fans think Snake Eyes is the Wolverine of that franchise, that comparison is valid more than they want to admit. Like Wolverine, Snake Eyes has been used a lot. But also like Wolverine, Snake Eyes is a badass.
And this is one of my favorite versions of Snake Eyes.
I like ninja Snake Eyes, but I prefer the faceplate over the visor. This version melds both of those, and it’s got enough articulation to get in some very cool poses.
So what say you, dear readers? Commando Snake Eyes, Ninja Snake Eyes, or no Snake Eyes?
