Hooded Cobra Commander
Destro

Snow Suited guy with a beard and skis (no idea what his name was, was he even a Joe or a Cobra?)

Are you ready for this name? It's even better than Skidmark (yes, a real Joe later on).

Snow Job


The dude who came with Mutt the Dogg

Mutt was the guy, and his dog was Junkyard. (Get it? Junkyard Dog? He was created by the guy who also gave us an Eskimo merc named Kwinn and gave a double-wink on the Dreadnoks by making their first names Tom, Dick, and Harry, and their last names Winken, Blinken, and Nod.)


Native American guy who came with the hawk, I think the bird's name was Spirit

Actually, Spirit was the dude. (He's often called Spirit Iron-Knife, throwing on his last name.) I think the eagle was Freedom.

Since the GI Joe topic has vanished, has anyone found more black timber snake eyes figures?

It hasn't vanished. It's hiding in plain sight (http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showthread.php?t=29981&page=1). :)

But, no, I've not found any black Timbers. I've not even seen a gray Timber to replace my broken one. :(

Target had a few regular snake eyes. I don't really shop there much, the Short Pump store tends to have more crap. I oughta go to the target next to walmart at chippenham and forest hill. Much closer.

:) Chux, thanks for the info...that all makes sense now, except I don't remember Kwinn, maybe a pic of the fig would refresh my memory.

They never made a Kwinn figure, Caes - he was a comics-only character, and a short-lived one at that. Lots of fans of the comics (which were really, really good for quite a while) clamored ceaselessly for a Kwinn figure.... but it never came. :(

They actually did make a Kwinn, in the comic 3-packs a few years ago. He would've been a spectacular figure in the 80s, but by today's standards he (and most of the comic pack-in figures) sorta sucked.

Thanks for the heads up JR, I can't say I'm too familiar with the comics (save for Rocky's intended inclusion :grin: ).

I'm tolerant of other people's views but if anyone mentions something from GI Joe Extreme in their list...I will e-slap you. :D

See! Here he is (http://yojoe.com/action/04/trackerkwinn.shtml)! From 2004, so he's actually more recent than I thought.

The comic can be read here (http://www.hasbro.com/monkeybartv/default.cfm?page=Entertainment/Comics/ComicViewer&comic=1180). I highly recommend it.

That issue rules. The Kwinn figure is one of my favorites, if only because I always wanted that guy as a kid; a 25th anniversary update would be awesome.
