SNAKE EYES (v27)
G.I.JOE COVERT MISSION SPECIALIST
Series: Twenty One (2005)
Snake Eyes (v27) was released as part of the twenty-first series (2005), as part of the Toys R Us exclusive Heavy Assault Squad set.
The Heavy Assault Squad set included Duke (v22), Infantry Division, Infantry Division (v2), Infantry Division (v5), Roadblock (v15), and Snake Eyes (v27).
Note: The Heavy Assault Squad set was apparently supposed to include Ace and Sgt. Mutt instead of Roadblock and the extra Infantry Trooper. As a result, filecards for Ace and Sgt. Mutt were included while filecards for their replacement figures were not.
Snake Eyes came with a black rifle and a silver rocket launcher.
Primary Specialty: Infantry
Secondary Specialty: Hand-to-Hand Combat Instructor
Some people say that ninjas own the night. If that's the case, SNAKE EYES owns the whole twenty four hours. Anybody who isn't a mouth-breather has a reasonable chance of sneaking up behind a sentry in the dark. SNAKE EYES can do it at high noon on a gravel path with no cover. A qualified expert with all NATO and former Warsaw Pact small arms, he is proficient in twelve martial arts systems and a master of the same ninja clan (Arashikage) that produced STORM SHADOW, his one known hobby is collecting spike-handled trench knives. At one time SNAKE EYES and the COBRA ninja STORM SHADOW were sword brothers, but circumstances forced them apart and led STORM SHADOW down the evil road to COBRA. Although others see them as bitter foes, SNAKE EYES looks at the COBRA ninja and sees only the best friend he ever had, so he dreads the day he may have to draw his sword against him in earnest.
No variations of Snake Eyes (v27) are known to exist.
Versions of Snake Eyes
