Yo Joe! Threezero Reveals 1/6 Snake-Eyes Figure For Pre-OrderJose Lopez
2020 has definitely turned out to be quite the year for G.I. Joe fans. Not only has the franchise been reimagined in 6” form under Hasbro’s G.I. Joe Classified line of action figures, but the original 3 3/4” figures have made a return under a retro carded line of figures in stores like Walmart. Couple that with the announcement earlier this year that a Snake-Eyes feature film is being produced by Paramount Pictures and that there is even a video game out for current consoles and you’d be hard-pressed to come up with even better news for Joe fans. That is, unless you mention that Sixth-Scale manufacturer Threezero has just revealed their 1/6 scale Snake-Eyes for pre-order!
It’s been years since Sideshow Collectibles did a run of 1/6 scale figures based on the G.I. Joe line. Sixth-Scale collectors love the Joe team and their enemies, Cobra, just as much as 1/18 collectors so Threezero teaming up with Hasbro and producing this new line is fantastic news for many.
Launching with Snake-Eyes is pretty much a no-brainer, considering the character’s popularity in pop culture. Hasbro did much the same thing with their Classified line and Threezero is smart to follow suit.
The black-clad American ninja looks suitably badass here, taking much of the classic A Real American Hero design for the character and tweaking it just enough to make him Threezero’s own. I love when companies see fit to basically maintain the silhouette of a character while giving him some of their own flair.
I can’t wait to see more of the forthcoming G.I. Joe line from Threezero and, based on this initial outing, it’s going to be quite impressive.
The Threezero G.I. Joe – Snake-Eyes Sixth Scale Figure is available for pre-order now and is slated to release Q2, 2021.
“Hasbro and Threezero are pleased to announce that they have teamed up for a series of 1/6 scale collectible figures redesigned by Threezero as inspired by Hasbro’s retro G.I. Joe characters. The first of these releases will be 1/6 Snake Eyes!
Standing 12 inches tall, the 1/6 Snake Eyes collectible figure features our standard fully-articulated body with fabric hand-tailored costuming with a high attention to detail.
