SNAKE EYES learned his top combat skills in missions around the globe. A tragic helicopter mission took away his voice and scarred his face. That's why he communicates with sign language and never removes his mask around others. He studied mystical martial arts with the Arashikage clan, which is also the family of master ninja STORM SHADOW, SNAKE EYES is an expert in all disciplines of martial arts and silent weapons. He can move silenty and without being seen. At one time, he and STORM SHADOW were sword brothers, linked by spirit and tradition. Now that STORM SHADOW is part of the evil COBRA organization, there is no escape from a final battle between two of the world's greatest martial arts fighters.
"The ability to move quickly and silently is my greatest weapon."
The very earliest carded Snake Eyes had slight packaging differences. Among them - the text on the back of the card described Cobra as a "terrorist" organization, and the figures were posed to have the heads looking at each other.
Later carded figures had no mention of the word "terrorist," the figure heads looked out and not at each other, and the packaging included the 2002 figure catalog.
These later packagings also included a new color background that no longer had the white "explosions" around the figure. The filecard for Snake Eyes was also changed by adding the text "Characters and events referenced herein are fictional and are not intended to depict actual characters and events."
Snake Eyes (v10) has an entirely new body sculpt. The same mold was also used to create Snake Eyes (v11) (2002).
Note the changes made from previous versions of 3 3/4" figures - including new waist construction.
