I would just pick up a couple belts from the Monkey or Toy Anxiety and use them to put one together. You could even use ribbon for it actually. Two straps around the shoulders and then two across his back and chest connecting to them. I did something similar for Hit & Run and it worked pretty well.

Here you go:
Hit & Run (http://i302.photobucket.com/albums/nn92/XMPhotos/GI%20Joe/HitRun2.jpg)

The leg straps would be similar to the ones that wrap around Snakes' shoulders and the vertical ones would be like the connectors on his chest/back. Just wrap the connecting straps around the shoulder straps and either sew or glue them. Hope that helped!

I really hope Sideshow produces him. Aside from Falcon, my fav, he was always the most visually appealing Joe to me growing up.

It did THANKS ALOT. Now what cna I use for the little back pack thingy? The reason I like the Resolute design is becase he is sleek and trim. You know what I mean?

No unless I am wrong he has a little back pack that attaches to his shoulder harness. Please someone correct me if I am wrong.

Actually, he had more of a go-bag or a murse that his line wound in and out of:

NO I was talking about the Resolute Snake Eyes. I think all he had was a little back pack.

Hmmm. I don't remember him having anything. Probably your best bet is to hit up YouTube and check out the episodes again.

yes he had a little back pack. I found this pic. Not very good but I think you can tell the size.

Here are some clearer images. I hope these help a little. SE was so kick ass in Resolute. I love the combination of his commando and ninja look. Good luck on you're project.

How the hell would you grab anything out of that?! :lol They should've put the sword up there and dropped the backpack to a buttpack (and yes, that's a real term :p).

I agree I think that would've looked better.

He doesnt seem to have many weapons besides his sword does he? Of course it didnt seem like he needed any more either. HAHA

I don't think he had the uzi, if memory serves he used an H&K rifle of some sort. I might be wrong about that though so this post is possibly useless.

He used an assault rifle of some sort at the end right before Duke confronts Cobra Commander.

Alright all you custom experts haha I need some help.

I had planned on using a HT TT body combined with the SS parts, but for some reason he looks to skinny through the shoulders and his arms look to long. I used the HT body that came with the Tom Cruise looking head.

Also I am stumped about how to do his goggles. They look more like sunglass than goggles.

Any ideas for my writers block. HAHA

Thanks in advance

Here's some glasses that would work for Resolute Snakes' goggles:

As for the body most folks here have generally used the soldier story body for the SS Snake Eyes.
