Mezco Toyz Rolls Snake Eyes With Their Latest One: 12 Collective G.I. Joe FigureJose Lopez
Mezco Toyz, known mainly these days for their One: 12 Collective line of 6”, clothed figures, has already announced characters from the G.I. Joe franchise like Destro and Roadblock for preorder. Now, arguably G.I. Joe’s most popular character, Snake Eyes, is joining them!
It was only a few years ago that G.I. Joe fans were still wishing for the franchise, which is mainly known for 3 3/4” action figures, to begin exploring larger scales, particularly Twelfth Scale. Today, G.I. Joe has been licensed out to practically any and all types of toys and collectibles, whether it be ThreeZero’s Sixth Scale figures, Diamond Select’s Minimates line or, of course, Mezco’s One: 12 line.
Whenever there’s a new G.I. Joe toy line, it’s a given that a new Snake Eyes will be included. Mezco Toyz held off a bit, but they’ve announced the inevitable with their own take on the character. This Snake Eyes looks excellent, taking plenty of the iconic design elements from both the original toy and the cartoon and giving them a real-world makeover.
While I do have plenty of nostalgia for this more popular ninja version, I’m hopeful we’ll also see a similar take on the Commando version of him down the line.
The Mezco Toyz One: 12 Collective Snake Eyes Deluxe Edition Figure is available for preorder now and is slated for release in Q1, 2023.
Enter Snake Eyes, the mysterious, highly classified commando and latest addition to the One:12 Collective!
The One:12 Collective Snake Eyes is outfitted for stealth and functionality in all black. His chest harness can hold a group of 3 grenades (permanently attached) and his ninjatō or falchion sword, his utility belt can hold his tanto knife, and his thigh holster can hold his handgun.
Timber, Snake Eye’s companion and pet wolf, is included and features 3 interchangeable head portraits as well as over 20 points of articulation.
The hybrid ninja-commando is armed and ready, complete with an overflowing arsenal including a three-section nunchaku 6 grenades, submachine gun with removable silencer, two butterfly swords, six shuriken in varying styles, and much more.
When it comes to G.I. Joe operations, Snake Eyes is the best there is. A total mystery with abilities that border on the supernatural, Snake Eyes unique blend of strength, skill, and Arashikage ninja training make him a force to be reckoned with.
