Custom Action Figures: Snake Eyes
He is the ninja that defined the G.I Joe series and one of my favorite characters in the Marvel comic book series, Snake Eyes is one of the original GI Joe team. The mysterious Snake Eyes character as written by Larry Hama served as a recon Ranger in the Vietnam War and later trained as a ninja with Storm Shadow in Japan. After a helicopter crash his face was severely burned and disfigured so he became a masked warrior who never spoke.

This version of Snake eyes is based on the 1989 3.75" action figure, in my opinion one of the best figures of the entire line. The more unique pieces of the figure were custom crafted such as the mask, glasses, wrist gauntlets, tactical vest, and double trench knives.

This is how I normally display Snake Eyes, rappelling on a line as seen in the old but famous Marvel Comics GI Joe issue 21, "Silent Interlude."
The second version of Snake Eyes with the visor is probably the more popular version of the character but I like the third version as well because of the original Marvel comic book series. The origin of this uniform actually comes into play in issue 95 as part of the Snake Eyes Trilogy which explores a little bit of his past in connection with some of the original characters in the GI Joe universe. While escaping a torture chamber in the Cobra consulate embassy, Snake Eyes turns the tables on the torturers and from them assembles this uniform and as a lone warrior. Driven by fury, Snake Eyes assaulted and ultimately brought down the entire skyscraper.
