    As I'm sure most of you know, this figure comes with the hood down so Snake Eyes can move his head, but the only time that he wears the coat in the movie (I think) is at the airstrip and the hood is up. That hooded overcoat is way to fly to not wear properly, so I sliced off the hood and sculpted a new one. I used Quiksteel epoxy putty. It's meant for pipe repair. It sets really fast (5 min) and is very tough in thin strips so it's great for fabric details.
    I repainted the whole coat with Tamiya Color Flat black, leaving the scabbard strap in the original gray color.
    I hope you like it! Thanks for looking.

    I love it. Really wish Hasbro would have done this themselves.

    Thanks so much you guys! I haven't done a Joe custom in a long time. Probably not since I gave Raptor four arms back in high school. PP Snake Eyes sat in his package for a long time before I decided what I was going to do with him. I'm glad I didn't try to sell him! And if I do, he should go for a lot more now! (I'd hope.)

    I always thought the figure should have had the hood up. Looks great.

    I saw the movie and I just do not remember him wearing a coat. In fact I forgot everything about that movie.

    Anyway, he looks great! One of the few ROC figures I bought and you made him SO much better.

    Blumpy2000- Thanks!
    Solrac333- I only saw the film once in the theater, but as I recall, he only wears it once in the scene at the airstrip after the "Paris Pursuit". So the figure is really more like "Hanging out looking badass immediately prior to the Paris Pursuit Snake Eyes"
