Heroes of the 1980s: Snake Eyes

In 1982, one of the greatest heroes of the entire decade exploded on the screen. His name? Snake eyes! While he was a man of few words (o.k., more like no words) yet his actions spoke volumes. Covered from head to toe in black, his face obscured by a featureless mask, Snake Eyes was all mystery, which made him the coolest mutha in the toy chest. But, kids weren’t the only ones that were enamored with the ol’ Snakester. The fact that he never spoke a word saved Sunbow a fortune, a fortune that was spent on bringing us shows even better than G.I. Joe, like The Charmkins and Moon Dreamers!

So, in honor of our cost effective friend, here are the top 5 quotes of Snake Eyes:

1. “…”
2. ” ”
3. “…!”
4. “…?”
6. “…,…”
