Snake-Eyes is just a repaint of the first one we got. The body has been used multiple times already for a few figures so there isn't much new here sculpt wise. This version is what a lot of fans were waiting for, an all black Snake-Eyes just like the original 1982 version. I liked the contrast of black and grey colors on the first 25th version we got and feel that the detail in the sculpt is lost on this all black version. Also of note is that the crotch has been fixed on some of these to allow better leg movement, but this is not the case on all of these. Snake-Eyes comes with a Pistol, Uzi, Knife, removable Web Harness, Explosives Satchel and a GI Joe Stand.
This figure is great for fans that wanted one on a single card or were disappointed in the colors of the first one and wanted an all black version. Other than that, this figure really wasn't needed.
Figure Rating: 6 out of 10

I like this one better than the first one. Seems more true to the original to me.

Also thats a great signature shogi. FTW.

I give this all black snake eyes v1 fixed crotch version a 10/10.
He is very awesome and in it's original color!
This is the one we should have gotten instead of the grey from the 1st G.I. Joe 5-pack.
I'm sure most of us wouldn't even look at the grey repaint if we would have gotten this black one first =)
I'm even selling/trading the grey v1 I have because I feel that version is unnecessary to have in my collection.

I've seen this figure so many times recently and passed him up.
He's a great figure, but I like the V2 better.
Hope they do him in black.
EDIT: I think he might be more accurate to the original if someone put Flash's legs on him and painted them black.

His knife and web gear interfere with one another, as do all the figures who use this mold and configuration.
