Ooohh! Very nice!

Yes it is true, the original gun of the snake eyes' SDCC mannequin is rubber. This one is a lot better, now i need to find out how this airsoft gun works, because the directions are in japaness or korean, Is there some kind of gas i need to buy? Where or what kind? If somebody know please help.
Is this the gun that is about $150?
It was $115.00 plus shipping Total was $142.00, For me it is good price for a heavy real replica, its funtions, etc.... made for a company. Even the box is a fine art.
I did a few research and this pistol most place cost a little over $200 with out the shipping.
My opinion try to get it before the stores find out that's the Snake Eyes' gun, then is going to be more expensive.
Airsoftguns are usually either gas charged, battery (AEG) or spring. Should be easy to see which. Spring, you just cock it and got off one shot. AEG (battery), well youīll probably see a place where batteries would feel at home. If itīs CO2 then you need to buy small canisters that usually fit inside the grip.
More photos of the leather parts. It's no 100% acurate but it looks very similar like the original.
Love this Thread!!.. Great material so far.
I found a cheap knockoff of the Dior Homme sneakers for Storm Shadow on ioffer.com. Total cost with shipping was about $96. While they aren't originals... the originals are impossible to find and run $400-$800... Replicas will have to do! I will post photos as soon as they come in.
Hey Art I found the shoes on that site also (I assume from the same seller) but how do the sizes work? Like how do I convert from US to what ever size they are using?
A 44 European is about a size 10...
There are a LOT of scams on ioffer, so you might want to hold off ordering yours until I get mine in and verify the seller is legit. Once I have them in and verify the seller is on the up and up I will be glad to post the sellers info here for anyone else who wants to get a pair. I just don't want to post anything yet in case the seller is a flake.
Thanks for the intel on those shoes and the website.
Well it doesn't look like it's going to matter, I wear a US size 12 which is a EU size 46 and no one seems to have larger then a 44. Two sizes too small is just too small to wear.
Here are some more manufactures that appear to make various parts of the Snake Eyes movie costume. Only thing I can't find is the correct MOLLE platform for the pouches.
My assessment is that Snake Eyes buckle is the 2.25" buckle. Are you coming up with the same?
Also, are you sure those are the right pants? Snake Eyes' cargo pockets were at a slant and the pants you listed look like they are straight. Just checking.
MaulFett also believes it's the 2.25" buckle based on some of your ruler pics. Plus, the center circle of the mannequin buckle is not as elongated as the circle on the 2" buckle.
As for the pants, the pockets on the SDCC mannequin were funky as if they detached them and angled and moved them back a tad and then reattached. But in many of the released publicity shots the pockets look straight. In one of the pics the left cargo pocket even seems to be sewn on top of the reinforced knee area similar to the Propper brand. I couldn't find any makers that have the cargo pockets angled, so please let me know if you find a source. However, the twill weave, reinforced knees, cargo pockets, back pocket flaps, and belt loops all look pretty spot on to the SDCC mannequin suit.
Cruzer, I think you are looking at BDU when you need to be looking at ACU.. Propper has an ACU pant with the slant pockets... but so far I haven't found it in black and I think they have two additional pockets low on the leg...
You guys are good and experts, looking for originals items, references and making props, i believe this tread is going to be the best place to start whoever want to make Snake eyes' costume. Not doubt. My respect to you:thumbup
Those are definatly modfied BDU's. Really simple at that, just the addition of the material over the knees.

to Cruzer, I wasnt at SDCC, but from those pics from the RPFer, where do you see the slant? I can't seem to notice the pocket being angled. Also, after a closer look, you can see that they sewed or pinned the corners of all the pockets down...so it suggests that they could have removed the buttons beneath the flaps.
But then again, I don't even know if the costume there is the screen used suit.
Definatly modified BDUs though
You guys think Art will have some screen-accurate abs with his Storm Shadow costume?
Yeah, the SDCC pants have to be either scratch built or modified BDUs. Either way, they're definitely a twill weave and not the "rip-stop" material because they don't have the grid pattern.
Hmm..I can't really identify them with any military uniform I have seen so far. My only other guess just short of them being completly custom, is to check some Law enforcement gear, Im thinking either SWAT or the like. Otherwise, those are completly custom
I got the triple buckle, It size is 2 3/4", outside edge, inside where the belt goes is 2 1/4", this the one for sure. Not doubt, thank Cruzer for the help.
