Yeah, I love this guy! As usual they always manage to make Snake Eyes awesome. I hate to keep buying the SOB, but he always manages to impress me. Kinda wish they would stop putting thier accessories in thier hands in-package though...ruins the paint on the handle. Small potatoes, though.

As for the Snake Eyes lips: It ain't new! Take a look at Snake Eyes v2 from the 80's. LLLIIIIPPSSS. They've also done it a few other times over the years, for some reason. Always unsettling.

I was unlucky/lucky in that

I was unlucky/lucky in that only one of my swords had slightly tacky paint on the handles. So what I like to do is use that one for when he's posed with the sword, and use the in tact one for display only when it is in his sheath. That tends to work pretty well.

And as for Snake Eyes having lips before, I guess that just goes to show how much I know about vintage GI Joe, huh? Haha.

Snake Eyes never had lips

I have to point out that no, Snake Eyes never had lips. What he had was an outline of lips, which what you would see if someone had a tight mask on. Never did any of the toys sculpt actual lips, never did any of the artwork display true lips, simply the idea that he had lips underneath the mask.
My guess is someone on the Rise of Cobra design team saw either some toys, or some artwork and made the same mistake Alexx did, which was see them as sculpted and exposed lips.

Dangit... now I gotta buy one too!!

I like the sculpt and the accessories... at least the normal sized accessories, really like the brown shoulder pads. Though I'm changing out those legs or at least the thighs cause they look like G1 Joe legs that have no muscle tone, keeping the feet for sure with that range of motion.

But i must say I'm very happy with the POC Snake-eyes V2..... its way better than the first 25th edition and I think its the ultimate due to accessories, sculpt and includes two heads.. after the first version (commando) & popular second version (cartoon). Heres the reviews below:

I think between this, the

I think between this, the POC, and the upcoming Ultimate Snake Eyes, we will have three definitive Snake Eyes that can all serve a different purpose: the perfect realistic version, the perfect movie version, and the perfect cartoon version. Between the three, I don't think Hasbro needs to make more Snake Eyes, haha.
