    Although not actually a transformers custom, it is TF related. He's based on the cybertronian battle suit that Snake-Eyes get at the end of the 1st DDP G.I. Joe/TF crossover comic. Let me know what you think.

    Parts List:
    Figure – Revoltech Patlabor Brocken
    Shoto Sword – Revoltech Patlabor Helldiver

    That actually works out perfectly. You should make the Storm Shadow one. I think there was one at the beginning of the second book wasn't there?

    Oh yeah!! that rocks! :rock 

    Now, if they could use that and make a movie out of this instead than the crap-promising G.I.Joe live movie that some are waiting for next years...

    That's pretty cool. I wouldn't think Snake-Eyes if you hadn't said that's who it was, not being familiar with the source material, but it is a cool little bit of armor for sure.

    Maybe add some arishikage markings to really make him pop?

    Looks cool. I'll start looking for some TPB of these crossovers.
    Do you know the ISBN numbers?

    Thanks guys, glad you all dig him. The figure is itself is a Revoltech Patlabor Brocken figure that i dyed black.

    I really like the idea of adding the Arashikage symbol. I might just have to so it.

    johaneggink, i don't know the ISBN, but here's a link to the G.I. Joe vs Transformer Omnibus at Amazon.

    Wow, that's cool! I've always liked the Brocken design, but but it never occurred to me that it's a perfect match for Snake Eyes. Good choice.

    Anybody got an image of what his suit looks like in the actual comics? I wonder if the Devil's Due artist might have directly referenced the Brocken (which, after, is a pretty old and recognizable design).
