Yes, the keys look modified. About the FN-5.7, it looks to be a rubber cast, not a real one, am I wrong?
No its a cast of some kind, because there is no break in the Magazine. On the real deal, there is a huge break line from the magazine and the grip. They probably cast one and sealed it to keep it from gunking the workings.
This just goes to show that Hollywood has ENTIRELY too much money. I'm pretty sure I could replicate those with some old Nike or Reebok high tops......
"Hey Guys! Let's spend 800 dollars on ONE CHARACTER'S shoes! and throw a little piece of leather on top to hide the laces"
I remember reading early on about the movie. There were early costume pics released for storm shadow. He was wearing either keds, or converse, and the fans went APE $h!t over it. Talking about how stupid that was. So they revamped it, and gave him 800 dollar shoes
Gotta love the fans. I believe the pics were on cienscape/mania, if anyones interested in digging.
Art? Do I see a Snake Eyes suit coming from you in the future ??
Looking at Storm Shadow... Snake Eyes... ehhh.. don't see it happening.... but might as well collect the part while they are available.
I'm collecting all the parts too, plus i'm making my Snake eyes costume. I already ordered the pistol, thanks guy for the information.
Art Andrew, thanks for the incredible and fantastic photos, you guys are crazy, I did not believe you when you say photos with a ruler,
This is better than any references photos of any kind, plus the Storm Shadow pistol out of the hoster, come on., How did you do it?
Any way, thanks you.:thumbup
You're still a ninja because you got the pistol out long enough to place it on the ground and take multiple pictures of it before they managed to see you doing it. Try that with the Boba suit next time.
If they ever had the Boba suit touchable... I would have it under my arm and be running out the door!!! I would be that guy that you see on the grainy security cameras getting dog piled by 14 guards but clinging on to the Boba Helmet for dear life!
That was fun ART, I'm imagining it and bud...
I don't know if this is the correct thread because the title says 'Snake Eyes boots and gloves' but I have to ask this.
The Storm Shadow's pistol looks to be a toy gun modified with some ali parts. How did it feel on the hand, does it loks plastic? or resin?
You would have to ask Mirax. She was the one who actually picked it up. I had the camera in hand.
So... Mirax? Where are you? I ask because it looks to be a found item
Here I am!!! Well, there were definitely metal parts to it but I would not say the entire pistol is metal. Now bear in mind, we were trying to be uber fast with doing our pics so I grabbed it quick, laid it down, then put it back in so there wasn't much time in handling it but it wasn't heavy. I would say most of it was probably resin. I would "think" it is a custom design but hey, if you can figure out what it actually is based off of, that would be great as I think that Baroness uses the same guns.
BTW, I have some Snake Eyes pics on my facebook- not as nice as Art's but you can never have too much reference. facebook.com/starwarschick1 If you aren't a friend, just send me a request so you can view the pictures. They are in my comic con file.
Pssttt... I uploaded your pics as well as mine to the gallery...
Thank you Mirax! I know you handled it a little bit of time, but... do you know if it felt hollow? Or just like a solid resin piece?
I ask because if it was a solid resin piece then the posibilities or odds to be a found item are like 10% I thought it could be a plastic chromed toy gun, like the ones sold at a fair, but if it's a solid piece then surely it's a custom design.
The answer to the why of my reasoning is because buying 2 or 3 plastic toys is cheaper than doing a mould so it wouldn't make sense to do resin casts of a CHEAP found item (the FN-5.7 is an EXPENSIVE found item ).
The pants look real similar to 5.11 TDU. Just the belt loops are a a little different. Could be earlier version or modified.
Oops, didn't realize you had uploaded them.
I honestly didn't really pay much attention to the gun other than getting it out of the holster really quick for a shot and then laying it out before they told us we couldn't do that.
Hi, i just got the pistol, it looks too realistic, pretty, It is heavy, it made of half metal and half ....i believe some kind of hard plastic, It is nice, very nice gun.
