Move with the wind, and you will never be heard. Revealed during the #YoJoeJune G.I. Joe #FanFirstFriday, it’s the Classified Series Snake Eyes and Timber: Alpha Commandos!
Snake Eyes, who debuted in the early 1980s in a Hasbro re-release called ‘G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero‘ is a fan favorite and a memorable supporting character in the G.I.Joe cinematic universe. He’s a ninja commando who carries an oath of silence and a penchant for wearing black and playing with his pet, a wolf named Timber. His arch-nemesis, Storm Shadow, is a rival ninja but also his brother.
Snake Eyes is getting a new figure, this time in a double pack with his wolf, Timber. The box is the Alpha Commandos set and features an updated look to Snake Eyes vs the already released figures with a new head sculpt and adjustments to the outfit. He comes with two weapons and a knife.
This special Snake Eyes figure features a classic design updated to bring the G.I. Joe ninja into the modern era, plus accessories inspired by the character’s rich history and the inclusion of his wolf companion, Timber.
