Mexico - Boxed Snake Eyes

Among the most unusual international offerings of G.I.Joe are the G.I.Joe figures sold in Mexico. Packaged and sold by Hasbro in the late 1980s, figures sold in Mexico were not packaged with bubbles on cards. Instead, they were sold in large, attractive window boxes.

Pictured above is the boxed swivel-arm Snake Eyes - named Lobo Solatario (Lone Wolf). Note that the packaging art is of the 1985 Snake Eyes (v2), but the action figure is the 1982 version.

The entire box is in Spanish. The figure itself is almost exactly like the U.S. swivel-arm version released in 1983. The filecard for the figure was written on the backside of the flap.
