GeneralsJoes Reviews Hot Toys G.I. Joe: Retaliation Snake Eyes

The gap in product over the past few months has created a double-edged sword…on the one side, it’s a bit of a bummer that only a scant handful of new G.I. Joe product has been available at mass retail throughout 2013 to date.  But on the other hand, it has freed up some income for some other purchases that might not have been made if the movie product had hit hard and heavy.

I couldn’t be happier that I was able to make some room in my bank account to support a new found Hot Toys habit.  I’m just simultaneously disappointed (and relieved) that it took me this long to discover them.

Hot Toys first offering is, of course, Snake Eyes as he appears in the G.I. Joe: Retaliation film.  What did I think?  You can check the GeneralsJoes Sideshow Collectibles review category, or just click the link below.

  • Yes, Hot Toys produces amazing products (although I maintain that they charge more than is warranted, not that I blame them in light of the fact that people are willing to pay more than double the asking price on eBay), and this figure is no exception…

    But here’s what I’m taking away from this review:

    Take a look, near the bottom of the review, at the side-by-side photo of this devastatingly cool and cripplingly expensive Hot Toys Snake Eyes… alongside Hasbro’s $10 4-inch Snake Eyes… which in its way is arguably every bit as awesome and intricately sculpted and state-of-the-art.

  • Ha! Yeah, I kind of put that there on purpose. Not necessarily to undersell the Hot Toys offering, but to exemplify how amazing it is that Hasbro is able to do what they do in such a small scale…

    The shot next to the latest Sideshow Snake Eyes makes that one seem pretty dumpy looking…

    I want to see what Hot Toys would do for Stalker, Chuckles, and Low-Light. Which requires them to be in GIJoe III. So I hope it happens. HT take on them would be staggering in awesomeness.
