#1012 Snake Eyes V1






I don’t remember ever seeing Snake Eyes on store pegs and I never had the original figure as a kid. My memories of the character are mostly from the cartoon, especially the scene when he locks himself in the radioactive cave to save the other Joes. I also remember when he faces off against Kwinn in issue 12 of the original Marvel comic. That issue was one of only a few that I had as a kid.

Snake Eyes was not on the top of my list to update as we got the ultimate version of him during the Pursuit of Cobra line. However, that version differs quite a bit from his original 1982 look and I wanted my OG13 shelf to be consistent. The original figure had different legs from the rest of the Joes, so that was the only real difference in the custom recipe.

Head: POC Snake Eyes
Torso: Paris Pursuit Snake Eyes
Arms: DG Duke
Upper legs: DG Snake Eyes
Lower legs: 25th Flash
Web gear, satchel: 25th Snake Eyes
Weapon: POC Snake Eyes
Collar: POC Steel Brigade


... and my complete OG13...

  1. This is the G.I. Joe team which made me a fan right from the start back in '82. The quality of these customs exceeds anything that Hasbro produced for the 25th Anniversary line. I would love to see these gems sold in a gift box with vintage painted artwork similar to the 1997 Stars and Stripes Forever set. Outstanding job on all OG13 founding members!
