Snake-Eyes Movie - SCARLETT!

G.I.Joe Origins: Snake-Eyes - G.I.Joe Classified Series - Scarlett - Hasbro 2021

I haven't watched Snake-Eyes: G.I.Joe Origins yet, but my biggest incentive to do so is to see Scarlett on screen again. It's hard to believe it's been twelve years since 2009's G.I.Joe: The Rise of Cobra was released starring Rachel Nichols as Scarlett. I like Rachel, and it was fun to get an actress so familiar to the geek genre (Alias, Star Trek, Conan, Titans, etc) in the role. But that movie was forgettable and the characters were written oddly. This time Scarlett is played by Samara Weaving (The Babysitter movies), and I'm excited to see her portrayal. But in the meantime, we can enjoy this great action figure. Hasbro's face scanning and sculpting technology gets better and better every year. While this face doesn't perfectly capture Samara's unique features, it still looks like a great real-life version of Scarlett. I was very happy to stumble across this figure in Target well in advance of her original release date. I think she's stunning. Let's check out Snake-Eyes Scarlett below!

An interesting oversight with this figure is the yellow piping on her thigh pads doesn't continue past the upper leg joint. I'm curious to see if this is something that will be corrected in later batches.

Scarlett comes with her signature crossbow.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is the movie Scarlett with the standard Classified release Version 1 and Version 2.

If you were considering swapping heads, please note that the neck pegs are significantly different sizes.

And here is Scarlett with Baroness and Akiko from the Snake-Eyes line.
