Snake Eyes Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:39016  
Name:Snake Eyes
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:WhiskeytangosCustomShop  
Date Added:May 9, 2012
Base Figure:ROML Bucky Cap
Height:6.00 inches
After seeing Bentys awesome Firefly, i decided to get crackin' on some Joes myself. I always wanted to make a Snake Eyes, but i didn't want to do one that looked like his classic look, since i feel like thats really over done. I mean... i might end up doing one anyways, but i didn't want that to be my first one. So i went with one inspired by the kind of recent Pursuit of Cobra version. He's sculpted entirely over a Bucky cap, with his swords built from styrene with sculpt over the handles, and the sheathes are made from heat shrink tubing with the end sculpted over. Enjoy!

You are my hero for getting this done bro because I love Snake Eyes! But then again who doesn't? Go on I dare you to name someone who doesn't! Great work I can see some great work went into this.

haha, thanks man. I think there are a lot of Joe fans who don't like him though, or the whole ninja element of the franchise, period.

I really like the look of this SA, very tactical gear and military appearance. Great take on the iconic character. Love it!!

Nice work WT! The suit looks pretty good, and I like your take on the mask. Accessories are a must with Snake Eyes, and you got some good ones.

I do wish you had of used your blue background for this, I think the black figure on the black background blurs the line between them. The lighter background would of had him pop out.

Still he does look good! Nice work!

thanks man. The sweater is kind of hard to pull off with that many lines, and I'm not 100% on it, but enough that I'm not interested in doing it again.

I've given up on the blue background though. Something about it was really turning people off. I think it was kind of drowning out detail. I do agree that black on black isn't the best way to show something, but I feel like there are several shots where you can see all the details clearly.

Sorry to hear about the negativity to the blue backgrounds, because I though your contest entry re-shot, and the cobra figure looked pretty sharp on it!

Don't get me wrong, I think you got some good shots. I don't think they are unclear, or anything. I just think they would of popped more using your blue rig. Silly people!

It's always nice to see GI Joe figures in the 6" scale. Beautiful work!

thanks man, I love seeing them too. Wish we saw more of them. They are a lot of work though, so I understand people being stand offish about it.
