Needless to say, Snake Eyes is my favorite Joe. So far, the 25th Anniversary line has given us some great figures of him...but none of them lived up to my specific vision of him which is an amalgamation of the Marvel comics, original package art, and modern military sense. So using parts of he various figures that have been released and some sculpting, modding, and painting, I've made my own which I'm calling "Ultimate Snake Eyes."
Some simple things...I made the blade of his sword matte black 'cause a ninja doesn't need the shine of his sword giving him away when he's sneaking up on people to slit their throats.
I painted the visor to make it appear more metallic and bring out the sculpted detail.
I cut down and moded the backpack to make it smaller and more manageable. Yeah, he has lots of stuff to bring with him on missions, but it shouldn't hinder his ability to move.
I modded the v1 legs to fit the 5 pack body. They just makes more sense than the "Batman Utility Belt Tubes" around his ankles they gave him. (The original figure had pouches!)

As a kid reading the comics, I wondered what his face was like, especially after reading how it was scarred; first, shot up in Vietnam, and second blasted with fire and glass while saving Scarlett from a falling helicopter.
In several issues, we're teased by seeing people's horrified reaction to it. I still remember a fight on a speeding boat where SE's adversary pulls off his mask and is so horrified, he falls into the water.
So many issues and years later, before he gets a new kind of miraculous surgery unlike his previous surgeries to fix his face, we get to see it.
Yes, it's gross, but not as gross as we expected, right? Well, I chalk that up to his using the muscles of his face to make it even worse when he needs to ala Two Face.
