Welcome to the Outpost. Last night I had to stop to Walmart for some foil and naturally I stopped by the toy isle and what do you know, there he was, the last one on the shelf, the new Snake Eyes: G.I.Joe Origins Stealth Cycle with Storm Shadow. There was a little hesitation by me so I put him in my cart and proceeded to check out the rest of the isle and on over to get my foil. I debated in my head if I should spend the money and said what the hey.
When I got home I quickly opened him up and to my surprise this was a much nicer figure then I was thinking. The cycle itself isn’t great but not bad either. There are a couple gimmicks on it that actually help set up some cool action poses. The figure itself actually has some nice articulation and looks pretty good next to the G.I.Joe Classified Snake Eyes.
If this style figure is a way to release 6 inch figures at an affordable price I’m down with it. This one looks great and over all this is a unique looking figure for a character that has a ton of versions between 3-3/4, 12 inch, and 6 inch. I hope this is paving the way to the future for G.I.Joe and we start seeing more stuff in stores. Has anyone else found this set yet? If so sound off below and let us know what yuo think of the offering! Make sure to check back for our next discussion.
