JLW515 Custom Snake Eyes

JLW515 Customs stopped by to show us another awesome custom in his G.I. Joe Revisited series for us to see on our forums.

This one is one guy everyone knows, Snake Eyes. This is based on his original “commando” look with a twist.

Alright, well, been busy for the past couple of weeks. Here is my custom “Class of 1982” Snake Eyes.

I really like the whole “Commando” side of SE better than the “Ninja” aspect. I like to think that his ninja training takes a back seat to his military training. There was a Marvel issue where Hawk is depicted with a black shirt and green pants. I always thought this would be a cool look for SE sort of blending both his ninja and commando together (“I’m a little bit country; I’m a little bit rock-n-roll”).

The lighting kind of sucks on this picture, but I painted the legs of Retaliation Dojo Snake Eyes. I based the camo pattern off of a 1980s Army camo uniform. I just free-hand painted the three colors (green, brown, tan) layered over each other.

I gave him Resolute Beach Head’s web gear with a second knife, again channeling that ninja aspect more to a military style, and a Valor v Venom UZI because I like the folding stock.

I do have a second version of this style of SE that I need to photograph that has the black, ribbed shirt with MTF Spec-Ops pants.

You can check out the rest of the pictures and let JLW515 know what you think by visiting the thread on our forums here.

Don’t forget to check out all his customs on his blog G.I. Joe Revisited.
