Welcome to the Outpost. I’m sticking with the 1987 G.I.Joes and getting into another one of my favorite childhood figures Sneak Peek. This is one I did have as a kid and I loved him. This is a really cool figure with unique weapons and gear. His big green periscope, Walkie talkie, and a cool rifle with a strap. I think Sneak Peek would have also benefited with a backpack as his file card states he sits out for weeks at a time observing enemy movement. It seems he may need some rations to survive.
This is another character that I believe missed out on the cartoon and I’m not sure about the comics. One thing I love about the file cards is you get a feel of what these troops are made of. Sneak Peek sounds cool, he is tough and he is patient, a dangerous combo especially for the enemy. He is one step ahead of Cobra. I just love the specialty characters from this year and I don’t think they were used enough or get enough credit. Sneak Peek did have a couple upgrades.
He had a cool Night Force figure that the colors were probably more fitting for hiding out in enemy territory. There are a couple modern figures I don’t own but look cool on paper. Who are my Sneak Peek fans? Does anyone have either of modern versions? Sound off AFTER THE JUMP and let us know! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
