I'm really, really not liking those.
Looks like the limits of its articulation is a 360° swivel at the shoulders and waist. Zero paint, it's all stickers and even then there aren't many. The monotone plastic is so rounded it looks like it was designed by Fisher-Price. I really don't see more than a few thousand of these being sold worldwide.

Well, since they're a UK con exclusive, I'll have to agree with you that only a few thousand will be sold worldwide! >:oP

I like them but they seem to suffer in a similar way to the Vector Powermaster Optimus set. They needed more time, more money and a larger release venue. Still, if I collected Joes I'd be all over these.

Can you open them up and put the Cobra guys inside them ala G1 Pretender shells? Because that would make these pretty cool.

This design is based on the snake armor that was featured in the devil's due TF/GI Joe crossover, which were giant robot mecha rather than just suits of armor.

The fact that this particular design comes specifically from the TF/Joe comic makes it more relevant to the TF universe.

These could have been better but I'd take one of the Red Shadow units.

Maybe it's the red used for the molding but that one looks better than the Arashikage or Cobra models. Blood for the Baron indeed.

They're not molded, as far as I can tell, and based on the previous exclusive, these are kitbashes and painted.

Yes, they where featured in a GI Joe vs TF comic series, in which they where made from Transformers tech. So yes, they are Transformers related.

Pulled out my Devil's Due GI Joe vs Transformers trade for comparison and I have to agree, these look nothing like that SNAKE design. Not really sure why they are billing these this way. Anyway, pulling as news and moving to the non-TF toy forum.

A lot of the reaction here hasn't taken into account what the show is and what it has done before.
The exclusive last year was a Pretender shell tribute to the Kraken Action Force figure and this is along the same lines and the shell has a minicon mount.
The details here are incomplete, so I can understand some of the confusion, but these are fan made to help support the show, so as a result there are some limitations to what can be made, but carrying on the theme of the Pretender shell. It does not exactly mimic the design SNAKE armour of the Dreamwave comics, but then that did not mimic the GI-Joe SNAKE Armour toy either, just as many 3rd party products do not replicate the inspiration they mimic.
It's not the only thing that has been created for the show either, so again, full verdict, relegation and the death seal is a little premature, but that's what forums are for :)

Personally I think it is cool, but I am more gutted that Motorthing won't double the attendance of the show, positive figureheads are always in demand.

Just to add to Dave Tree's post and clear up some of the information people have posted, very little of which is true.

The figures are not kit-bashes they have been scratch built for the show much like The Kraken last year.

The show is a G.I.Joe/Action Force/Transformers event. The Transformers side of the figure is that, much like The Kraken, that the figure doubles up as a Pretender shell.

There are more exclusives that you can see over at BloodForTheBaron which is where these preview images came from. Better images will be released soon.

These will not be produced in the 1000s, at the moment there will be 30 of each colour.

The figures come with a sticker sheet so that you can customise them for the faction(s) of your choosing.

As Dave Tree said they are not based on the IDW cross-over they are a continuation on the Pretender theme the show started last year, they have just been up-scaled so that they can hold a Joe figure or a Transformer.

I read the making off of the Kraken, and it was made from a cheap toy.
If the only conection to TFs with these SNAKEs is the fact that they can hold a Gi Joe in them, how does that count as a Pretender homage?
The original toy did the same as far as I know. So why even bother with these?
They look infirior to the original from the 80s and they're not based on the design they'Re advertised as.

Hi Dead Meat, just to reference back to my last post, the details of what was posted was incomplete and those images were produced for a UK Action Force / GI Joe site. As Moonbug mentioned there is a running theme and it's not the only item produced for the show, whilst it might not be to everyone's tastes, the same could be said for so many other fan produced show items, but they still hold a place in the hearts of those that collect them. As far as I am aware, they have not been advertised yet

Official images of the Roll Out Roll Call 3 Exclusive G.I.Joe vs Transformers S.N.A.K.E. armor have been released. As some of you pointed out when this exclusive was first revealed the design does differ from the design featured in the Devil's Due comic series, however these are being billed as G.I.Joe/Transformers crossover exclusives.

Roll Out Roll Call 2012 takes place March 10 - 11 2012 at the Jury's Inn, Southampton, UK.

I still have a couple of S.N.A.K.E.s from back in the day, I think of them as pre-B.A.T.s (which I also collect) and would totally buy one of these in regular retail. They look a bit rough on the insides though.
