Four decades ago, the first Snake Eyes action figure hit store shelves with the new 3.75″ tall G.I. Joe action figure line. Hasbro captured lightning in a bottle, and kids everywhere were pitting Joes vs. Cobra in homes, playgrounds, and pools. The one Joe all kids wanted more than the others? Snake Eyes, of course!
The ninja without a voice. The wordless hero. The hardest to friggin find figure of the early 1980! Snake Eyes has finally been captured in this variant diorama from Diamond Select. This SDCC 2022 exclusive is now available for pre-order. Snake Eyes stands at 10″ tall and is accompanied by his wolf companion, Timber. Timber has explosive rear paws. I never knew about this feature in some wolves.
This dynamic diorama will only set you back $49.99.
The ninja Snake Eyes returns for Diamond Comics’ 40th Anniversary in this exclusive variant G.I. Joe Gallery Diorama! Depicting the silent warrior in his cartoon colors, sword raised alongside his pet wolf Timber, this Gallery Diorama stands approximately 10 inches tall. It comes packaged in a full-color window box and is made of high-quality PVC. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle!
