Code Name: SNAKE EYES
Subject served in Long Range Recon Patrols in South East Asia. Left the service to study mystic martial arts with the same Ninja family that produced Storm Shadow. Snake-Eyes was living an ascetic existence alone in the High Sierras with a pet wolf named Timber when he was recruited for the G.I.Joe Team.
Qualified Expert: All Nato and Warsaw Pact small arms, black belt in 12 different fighting systems and highly skilled in the use of edged weapons.
"Snake-Eyes was tempered on the anvil of life until he was as dangerous as a razor-edged sword, flailing in the dark. The G.I.Joe Team sheathed that sword and harnessed its deadly energy but even they are wont to forget that even within the safety of its scabbard, the blade retains its cutting edge."
My Personal Notes: Like most other kids, I loved Snake Eyes as a kid. In a move I can't explain, I am sure I had this version of Snake Eyes as a kid, but a friend of mine in school somehow convinced me to trade him for another figure or two. I don't remember the details of the trade and what I got for it now, but I remember while I was happy with what I got, I really regretted trading him off. I never got another one as a kid, though I can now gladly say I got him replaced in a February 2012 eBay purchase.
