|Comments: Ninja, Commando, deadly force of nature... These terms merely scratch the surface of the enigma known as Snake Eyes.
Arguably one of the greatest assets to the GI Joe team, Snake Eyes' record of honor and valor cause even the most evil enemies to tremble with fear.
In his early military career, Snake Eyes proved himself time and again in combat, most notably during the rescue of his allies, wherein he sustained injuries to his face and vocal cords, costing him his voice. Donning a mask and face shield only added to the mystery of this silent soldier, known by many of his peers as "Classified." Later in life he would find himself fighting side by side with very the soldiers that he saved, as a member of America's Elite Fighting Force, G.I. Joe.
Snake Eyes has been trained by the very best of the best. The most elite of military specialists have molded him into the soldier he is today, making him proficient in almost all manner of small arms weaponry. Adding to his repertoire, he has fashioned his body into a living weapon under the watchful eye of some of the world's greatest martial artists, including the ninjitsu masters of the Arashikage Clan.
Sideshow's Snake Eyes figure, released in March 2009, has the historical significance of being the very first G.I. Joe action figure created by a company other than Hasbro, who with the debut of the original G.I. Joe figure in 1964 created the Action Figure genre.
