X Review: Retaliation Snake Eyes

review-history01

Snake Eyes was first released as a straight-arm version in 1982, with the swivel-arm version released the following year in 1983. There have been 65 versions since then. The 25th Anniversary version rang in 2007, and the Retaliation movie brought a few more in 2013, with a bunch in between. The version in this review is an homage to the 1985 version in the second image below.
