    I've wanted to do this since I first saw Bionic Commando's Old Snake a few months back. Skinflint that I am, I was waiting for Movie Joe prices to drop. I did modify the recipie slightly. The body is still Rise of Cobra Destro, but I fabricated the lower trench coat and hat myself. The lower coat as well as the shoulder pads are craft foam of the sort that you can buy at craft stores. It's flexible, paintable and sticks well with Krazy Glue so it's great for fabric details. The hat I sculpted by hand from FastSteel epoxy putty. It sets fast and is very strong in thin sheets, so it's perfect for wide brimmed hats and the like. After it set, I sculpted the hatband and buckle from Quikwood putty because it's better for detail work. The head is Destro's, sanded and filled with Quikwood. The legs are from an early to mid '00's Cobra Commander.
    If you're not sure who Old Snake is brush up here.

    It drives me crazy when I notice paint mistakes after I take the pictures, but I'm too lazy to re-take anything tonight. If I do a gallery, it will be cleaned up. I still need to add a few finishing touches anyway.
    All comments and crits are welcome.
    Thanks for looking!

    It came out perfect!I love the special attention to detail.You just took the Old Snake custom to another level.Hasbro could easily mass produce this since they own both properties.Maybe even as a Con exclusive

    Thanks everybody for commenting! I'm really glad that you all dig my Old Snake. er... Anyway.
    Bionic Commando- Thanks again for giving me the idea! Now that I've done one, I may yet take a stab at doing a Rorschach.
    Trippanator- Thanks, but I'm not into painting on things like highlights and reflections. There are some folks who have done some really cool stuff with that look, but it's not my style.
    SQ7- To quote Old Snake himself "Thisss is the world. Everythingsss for sssale."
