    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?

    Thanks ART
    Bear in mind that the FN Five Seven has a polymer frame, so itīs not all metal in the original either.

    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.

    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.

    EDIT: Itīs gasoperated

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Cruzer,

    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.

    Re: Snake Eyes boots and gloves from GI Joe Movie

    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...

    Those aren't ACU's. Material appears too thick, and is lacking other features. ACU pant pockets use velcro (as does the rest of the suit), and those pockets from my experience appears to utilize buttons. Another dead giveaway, is that ACU side pocket flaps are significantly "shorter" than BDU pocket flaps. From the promo pick, those flaps appear too tall to be ACU. Another thing that tells me it's not ACUs, its missing the lower ankle pocket.

    Those are definatly modfied BDU's. Really simple at that, just the addition of the material over the knees.

    Re: Snake Eyes boots and gloves from GI Joe Movie

    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?

    Check the first pic... the fly is velcro...

    And the second pic shows the angled pockets.

    Upon looking at this more closely, I am really wondering more and more if these aren't modified, but are completely custom made.

    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.

    Yea, thats definatly not ACU, but as Cruzer stated, it's missing the rip-stop pattern that the BDUs and ACUs have. The velcro on the fly area, that's not on either.

    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.
