Hasbro G.I. Joe Pursuit of Cobra Snake Eyes Action FigureBehold! The greatest figure of late 2010 and most likely all of 2011 is this Snake Eyes. I know it's early in the year, but trust me-- Hasbro pulled out all the stops here. For the asking price, Hasbro really outdoes themselves by giving fans so much crap, you're going to lose some of it. The twin silencers may be the tiniest accessories packaged with a figure of this scale in some time, and there's only one holster on Snake Eyes to store one. The other, well, I hope you've invested in ziplock bags or tackle boxes to store all the extra gear.

Hasbro G.I. Joe Pursuit of Cobra Snake Eyes Action FigureStanding just over 4-inches tall, Snake Eyes is just the right size to fit in with your other modern Joes (that is to say, from 2007 and beyond.) He has 6 points of articulation, with some nice bonuses. His knee pads-- that's right, the pads-- are articulated and removable. Both his wrists can swivel and pivot, giving him better gripping power over his many weapons. The detail is way above par, with all sorts of creases, folds, and textures plus varying levels of black and grey to really make the parts look different. The original Snake Eyes in 1982 was just black, but this one? This one has glossy black gloves and boots, grey knee pads, shiny goggles, plus some painted symbols on his shoulders.

Between the figure itself and the sculpted harness, there are a few places to store some of the spare weapons. The suspenders have a place to put a knife sheath on it, and the blade does indeed come out. There's a second place to store a knife on his boot, plus there's a holster for a pistol and a silencer on his hip. There are also two places to plug in swords on his back, so at any given time, this guy can carry way too much crap. The most innovative bit of gear is the elastic on the lower torso, rather than using hard plastic Hasbro wisely used a material that can bend easily and will allow the figure to do things like sit. They should ape this construction for all their brands, specifically Star Wars' pilot figures.

Hasbro G.I. Joe Pursuit of Cobra Snake Eyes Action FigureHe has no real problems holding any of his gear, and it's rare to see so many bits and pieces as being removable extras. Even the head can be changed out-- if you don't like the default 1982-style head with the goggles, a visor based on the 1985 version has been included on an alternate head. And a fun bit of trivia-- originally Hasbro told fans each head would be packaged separately, so you'd have to look for a variant in stores if you wanted both versions of the noggin. Thankfully, they opted not to do this, although I admit it's a clever way to move more units. To date, Snake Eyes has been incredibly popular and in my findings often sold faster than the presumed most-popular figure, the Cobra Shock Trooper.

Hasbro G.I. Joe Pursuit of Cobra Snake Eyes Action FigureSince I don't have every Joe figure ever, I can't vouch for all these being new accessories. One of the pistols and the Uzi-looking thing have tiny little tabs on them where you can attach the silencers, but be careful with these-- Hasbro used similarly sized tabs on lightsabers with removable blades in Star Wars and those remain notorious for breakage. Two of the swords come with sheaths, and those plug into the back of his harness. With 4 guns, 3 swords, 2 knives, 2 silencers, a sack full of explosives, and an alternate head, this is a truly amazing release. This one figure has more gear than some entire waves used to have, it's really remarkable.

If you buy only one more G.I. Joe figure in the foreseeable future, make it this one. Hasbro finds a way to one-up themselves every few years but for the time being I can't imagine toy technology improving beyond this for a couple of years, if not more. This is the quality of figure you wish you had when you started buying the 25th Anniversary line in 2007, so don't miss out on it. Hasbro made you the best freaking ninja commando of all time (so far), so be a good sport and buy it.
