Hasbro G.I. Joe Dollar General Exclusive Snake Eyes Figure Review

Dollar General stores have been receiving some pretty cool G.I. Joe repaints!

Join me for a look at the Snake Eyes figure from this exclusive wave, based on a 1991 release of the character! This was one of my favorite Snake Eyes figures as a kid, so naturally this is an update that really appealed to me. Video after the jump!

    I think this updated figure look better than the older one. "EXCEPT" – I do wish that the knees and other [minor] spots were just a little bit more accurate to paint locations that the original figure had.

  • We must be around the same age because the 1991 SE was my first SE, as well. I love this updated figure, although I agree about the goggles. i think that the "commando" head from the first series of 25th anniversary figures would have been a better choice to repaint.

    I don't care if these are "frankenjoes" or not, these are some of the best joes out right now.

    I only have one Dollar General in my vicinity and I've been there about five times now to no avail .The lady who works there must think i'm nuts the way i walk in,scan the toy aisle and then walk out with a disappointed look on my face LOL!

    • I have a friend who works at DG and she told me they get trucks on Saturdays and Wednesdays. I don't know if that's true across the board (probably not), but it wouldn't hurt to ask. No use showing up often if they only get 2 trucks a week.

      I strolled in after work (around 3:30pm) on a Wed. and scored. I haven't seen them replenish though, and that was weeks ago. I'm still looking for the black Cobra Trooper. I wouldn't bother coming in too early either, because whenever I go in for chips and snacks or whatever (it's about 1/2 mile from my house) they always seem to be stocking in the afternoon.

      I hope any of this info helps. It's a shame that these are so hard to find, especially with Retaliation stuff disappearing.
