The New G.I. Joe Cartoon’s Snake Eyes Goes Combat Casual


The big licensing expo is happening in New York, and Hasbro has an enormous booth as usual. What’s not usual is that Hasbro is promoting its Hub cartoon network and all its new shows including Transformers Prime and G.I. Joe: Renegades. This means the booth was covered in art from the Hub shows, including stuff we haven’t seen before. Oh, like Snake Eyes. And his stylish new Dockers cargo shorts.

I suppose I should be grateful; at least they didn’t redesign Snake Eyes as horribly as Timber. He hardly looks like a wolf at all! Although admittedly the pink bow is a nice touch. Thanks to Tom W. for the tip.
