I had absolutely forgotten that Hot Toys would be releasing 1/6 versions of G.I.Joe - specifically from the "G.I.Joe Retaliation" "live"-action film (yes, THAT postponed one), and the first salvo goes to SNAKE EYES! And gosh does he look "gorgeous" here! The last time we saw a Snake Eys 1/6 was the mass market version from the first film (*shudder*) and the "Classic" version from Sideshow Toys. Seeing HT's past shining record of producing military figures, this is a serious no-brainer. I expect a whole lot more exciting releases to come from this series - if indeed it will be a series more than one release!
LOOKING-FORWARD-TO (if any of this will exist anyways, I wouldn't know otherwise ;p): Cobra Commander and RoadBlock ("The Rock" as an action figure rom HT? Would be utterly awesome!)
Here be some pics to get you sorted out for 2013! No price points yet, but be sure to bug your fav retailers for availability soon! Individual images mirrored HERE on my Facebook album!
HOT TOYS PRESS: 'In view of the popularity of the G.I. Joe series and the launch of the G.I. Joe Retaliation movie in early 2013, Hot Toys is proud to present the Snake Eyes Collectible Figure from the G.I. Joe Retaliation movie as the first collaboration with Hasbro. The movie-accurate collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Snake Eyes in his black “military ninja” bodysuit in the movie, highlighting the character’s image, highly detailed costume and weapons.'
UPDATED: Sideshow Toys has it for pre-order at the SRP of US$194.99, with a May 2013 estimated ship date.
