A hint of costume design for G.I. Joe: Retaliation ninjas?

At first I kind of glossed over it, thinking it might be custom fan art of some kind, but HissTank board member “BIG BOSS” says he works for a t-shirt licensor who will be producing clothing for the G.I. Joe: Retaliation film, and he provided some artwork that may be getting used on these shirts.

Considering how closely the Snake Eyes artwork matches what we saw on the IDW cover, I’d say these seem like they could be authentic.  Granted, there isn’t a ton of detail here, but enough detail to be interesting and news worthy I think.

Personally?  I’m quickly falling in love with this Snake Eyes design.  The integrated armor on the shoulders and the forearms is pretty damn great.

Jinx and Storm Shadow are still tough to really make out, but both wearing ninja masks is a cool thing.  I’m liking what I’m seeing.  Considering Rhett Reese already confirmed the new Snake Eyes mask is without the lips, that’s just another bonus.  Good stuff.

  1. It appears that there still using some variation of the rubber-molded muscle suit, which is a bummer. But yes, these look promising.

  2. I’m with Monte. No lips is great, but the rest is not to my tastes. (Although, it does have a Sigma-6 feel to it, so some fans might be happy.) The first pic of SE from the first movie, I thought, was pretty awesome (TAC-vest, BDUs). Drop the rubber suit (black sweater will do) and lips, tuck the pants into the boots, and that look is pure win IMO.
