JoeIntel.com is quickly making a name for itself as a “go to” site for some great G.I. Joe tidbits, and it continues the tradition with a very nice assortment of images of the unreleased “Training Snake Eyes”. This figure was a Resolute Comic Pack figure, originally slated to come with Night Creeper, but never got released to retail. Just looking at the figure itself, it doesn’t really seem to fit the Rise of COBRA aesthetic, so I’m not sure it’s something we’ll ever see at this point. That wave of comic packs was originally going to feature Duke (Scuba) vs. Lamprey as well as Snake Eyes (Training) vs. Night Creeper.
notpicard from JoeIntel managed to get his hands on this very unique item, and was gracious enough to share images on JoeIntel, and allow GeneralsJoes to host them as well. Like Storm Shadow (who came with some Dice-like accessories), Snake Eyes comes with some similar gear as Slice did back in the vintage days. Check out the thread at JoeIntel here, and take a peek at the images below.
Mysterious Stranger over at JoeBattleLines just posted new images of his recent purchase – a Rise of COBRA G.I. Joe SkySweeper w/ Air Raid. And… wow. I just officially fell in love with this vehicle.
I’ve been avoiding the repaints, simply because I have most of the originals, and with the price of vehicles these days, I just need to be more selective, but they made enough tooling changes on the Firebat to really make this an awesome new vehicle…and being at the Alpha price point to boot, this is a no brainer. The enhanced engines, the landing skids…small changes, but they make an absolute WORLD of difference. Add in the figure, which is a very nice repaint of Resolute Duke from the 5-Pack, and this is definitely a set worth buying, especially for that price. Interesting that Air Raid’s file name and file card indicate that he’s Airborne, but still a minor issue for a very nice looking figure. This is an absolute winner!
