Sideshow 1/6th G.I. Joe Cobra Commander and Snake Eyes Quasi Reviews...

Okay, I know they've been a long time coming, but I finally got around to taking a few decent pics of my Sideshow Cobra Commander and Snake Eyes figures.
Both figures, are beauties, Bitches. Though not at all on the same level of detail as Hot Toys or Enterbay, Sideshow definitely went above and beyond with these two. Take a look...
Snake Eyes is (as always) the stand out member of the series. As far as figures (and characters) go, the mother fucker exudes cool.
I canI can remember making a comment on a fellow collector's site regarding the zippers and buttons on some 1/6th scale figures not being to scale with the figures themselves. Usually, a 1/6th figure's jacket zipper is 1/1 scale (meaning that the pull tab of the zipper is roughly the size of the figure's hand, and would, in real life weigh roughly eleven pounds. But no doubt be able to deflect gun fire in a pinch... which I guess means it's okay for something...)
Anyway, Sideshow's buckles, clasps and whatsits are all to scale. Cool- until you're actually trying to buckle and snap together said accessories with your massive, 1/1 scale fingers.

Not unlike some farts, Snake Eyes is silent, but deadly...


Snake Eyes "..."***
***Translation: "Eat this, Cobra Beeyotch!"



Cobra's chief scumbag, Ol' Cobra Commander himself...









Well done, Sideshow. Now bring on Storm Shadow!
