    The story goes that while making the initial Joe line, they discovered that the cost was going to be higher than expected. Rather than cutting a single paint application on all the figuers, somebody came up with the idea of cutting ALL the paint applications on one of the figures, saying that it would make him look cool. Supposedly that picture is from Snake Eyes original design before they decided to just make him completley out of black plastic.

    Thanks. I had basically heard that story before, but I had never seen the proposed figure.

    True enough, still on the otherside he probably wouldn't have completley dominated the comics either.

    It looks like if you "frankenstein" a Gung Ho waist and legs with a Grunt body and a Snake Eyes head, you'll have a pretty close idea of what this figure might have looked like.....maybe I'll try it.
    MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.....

    The image of him in those colors was released as stickers and as part of a ColorForms set, so multiple examples do exist of it.
