Sneak Peek is a legend in the Ranger recon battalions. They tell of one mission where his control unit got overrun. In the ensuing confusion, Sneak Peek was never recalled. He stayed put, observing enemy activity, taking notes and sketching maps for two weeks until somebody remembered he was out there and sent him the signal to return! He is, of course, Ranger qualified and proficient with all NATO night-vision devices.
"Patience, endurance, and guts is what Sneak Peek has plenty of. He's got the patience to creep inch by inch into enemy territory, carefully bending back every branch and twig in his way and just as carefully replacing them. He's got the endurance to sit motionless in cramped cover for days on end, waiting for the bad guys to show up, and when they do, he's got the guts to stick around and watch!"

SNEAK PEEK is a legend in the Ranger recon battalions. His battalion commander told of one mission where Sneak Peek's control unit was overrun. In the ensuing confusion, he was never recalled. He stayed put, observing enemy activity, taking notes and sketching maps for two weeks until somebody remembered he was out there and sent him the signal to return! He is, of course, Ranger qualified and proficient with all NATO night-vision devices.
"Equipped with third generation passive image intensifiers, optical range finders, parabolic microphones, and noise-gated amplifiers, Sneak Peek can pinpoint the location of the enemy in complete darkness, without revealing his own position. Rumor has it that all of his electronic hardware is simply back-up for an extraordinarily-developed sense of smell and an acuity of hearing that extends into the subsonic and high-frequency ranges."
Toy Notes: Carded in a Toys 'R Us-exclusive two-pack with Lt. Falcon. Item #6709-1. This figure is considered a moderately high-demand item.
