New Pictures of Snake-Eyes Costume Meet Your Futuristic Ninja Needs

You can finally take a gander at photos of "Darth Maul/The Toad" Ray Park in his full Snake-Eyes costume from the upcoming G.I. Joe film, and we grudgingly have to admit that he looks fairly badass. Even though his visor looks a bit like Geordi's from Star Trek: The Next Generation, we'd never tell him that to his face. If we did, he'd either gut us with his sword, pop a cap in our ass with his gun, or possibly do both. Check out another Snake-tastic picture after the jump.

These images give us hope that G.I. Joe won't be a complete mess, or at least it'll look pretty while continuing to strip-mine all our childhood memories. We haven't heard if Snake-Eyes will have his wolf Timber in the movie or not, although we don't really think they need to give him a slobbering animal to make him look more intimidating. It's also not clear if he'll talk or if we'll just see his face in the flick. (Thanks ProjectThanatos!)

@braak: It would help explain his chronic poor judgment, though.

One time when we were in junior high, my friend Dave flipped out when a bunch of Cobra soldiers (like a dozen) managed to take down Snake-Eyes. I think it was when he was stumbling around in the snow, around the same time he met Timber. Anyway, Dave starts yelling, "Nobody can beat Snake-Eyes! Nobody!" We had to calm him down.

And then about a year later, he gets on this trip about how if Axl Rose was really fuckin' trashed and hopped up on coke (keep in mind that we're still in junior high, in Fargo, North Dakota), he could take out anybody, even a black belt, because Axl would just be going fucking crazy and "Crazy beats karate. Crazy always beats karate."

Obviously, then we were like, "Well, what if Axl fought Snake-Eyes?" And we've been struggling with the question since. It's like the grandfather paradox in time travel.
