SNAKE EYES (v29)
Series: Twenty Three (2007)
Snake Eyes (v29) was released with the first wave of single packs celebrating the 25th Anniversary of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero.
Snake Eyes (v29) came with a black submachine gun, bandolier, sword, knife, Timber wolf, and black display stand.
Primary Specialty: Infantry
Secondary Specialty: Hand-to-Hand Combat Instructor
Subject served in Long Range Recon Patrols in Southeast Asia. Left the service to study mystic martial arts with the same Ninja family that produced STORM SHADOW. SNAKE EYES was living an ascetic existence alone in the High Sierras with a pet wolf named Timber when he was recruited for the GI JOE team.
Qualified Expert: All NATO and Warsaw Pact small arms, black belt in 12 different fighting systems and highly skilled in the use of edged weapons.
"SNAKE EYES was tempered on the anvil of life until he was as dangerous as a razor-edged sword, flailing in the dark. The GI JOE team sheathed that sword and harnessed its deadly energy but even they are wont to forget that even within the safety of its scabbard, the blade retains its cutting edge."
Snake Eyes (v29) was available with either a gray or black version of Timber. The black version is more difficult to find.
Early Snake Eyes (v29) figures came with no backpack hole in the back. Later Snake Eyes (v29) figures (starting with wave 3 cases) included a backpack peg hole.
Snake Eyes (v29) was created using the mold originally used to create Snake Eyes (v28) (2007) with a newly sculpted head and bandolier.
Versions of Snake Eyes
In 2006, a CLASSIFIED figure was released, showing Snake Eyes from his years prior to G.I. Joe.
