Alpha Commandos reporting for duty! Today we are taking a look at the G.I. Joe Classified Alpha Commandos 2 Pack of Snake Eyes and Timber! This set gives Snake Eyes his military themed getup with the goggles and pairs him with his trusty sidekick Timber. Timber isn’t just for show, he’s rocking it Classified style with articulation galore at every point, and even comes with an alternate head.
We’ve run the set for a full round of pics. Read on to check out over 65 shots showing what they can do. Part of the shipment for this guy has arrived state side, while the rest look to be hitting later in the year. If you haven’t picked him up, check out sponsor Dorkside Toys to grab your copies!

Great set! Snake Eyes in mostly an existing mold, using the core body from Beachhead. New stuff includes the vest, head and boot guards. The pistol, silencer and Uzi are from the #00 pack, while he gets a fresh knife and sheath, plus two more larger guns. So lots of Frankenjoeing going on, but it doesn’t even matter. This doesn’t feel forced, it’s a great modern Commando Snake Eyes.
Timber is the star here – a fully articulated 6 inch scale wolf. No corners cut – look at the pics to drink in all that articulation. Sculpt and paint are nothing to sneeze at either.
Combined, the two are an awesome set and worthy of pick up. If you haven’t ordered yet you have some time, grab this one before it sells out!
Key shots here, 65+ below that!
Kicking things off with the Scarlet Refresh.

There's nothing Hasbro loves more than a good repaint to get you to buy the whole thing again.
So why keep the red and yellow? I guess so they don't have to alter the package art at all?
It might be an unpopular opinion, but I prefer the original, especially when it comes to the new paintjob on the face. Nu-Scarlett looks older and like she has a facial rash or something...she's not as cute anymore. And when they're side-by-side, the two figures look like mom and daughter now.
As for the uniform, I appreciate the attempt to tone the original down, but the color choices they went with are kinda drab. There have been really good repaints done by fans that tone the first figure down while evoking the original design more than this one did.
It's strange that they go to the trouble of repainting and don't make it match her original color scheme more.
Even if they didn't follow the Retro version's paint job by faking a leotard, it seems like there were better options here. Add truthfully, it would've needed fewer paint apps over all so it might have saved a few pennies.
They should have just painted it all black with red and grey accents.
But I still don't like the underlying design. No matter what color it is.
Nice! Now instead of being completely uninterested, I'm only uninterested from the neck down.
Still a pass for me . Might buy the duke. Roadblock still a pass also .
Let the hunt begin.
