Points of Interest:
The Snake Eyes (Arctic Trooper), while based directly off of his appearance in the second issue of the original Marel Comics G.I. Joe comic book series, it was never produced in the original G.I. Joe A Real American Hero figure line. Hasbro did however, produce a Snake Eye figure for a three pack in 2004. That version was a kit bash that utilized the 1982 Snake Eyes head and the body of the 1983 Snow Job figure. The three pack also included a Scarlett (Martial Arts) figure, and the first figure based on the popular comic character Kwinn.
