My Snake Eyes costume isn't based on one specific incarnation from comics, cartoons, or movie but I wanted to add the tonfa with spring-loaded knives from the movie since they were so cool.
My initial sketches of how to achieve a spring-loaded mechanism with trigger inside of a tonfa body. I've built bopper weapons from pvc electrical conduit before so it seemed to be the logical form factor to house the guts.
This is actually my first build, complete and unpainted. I was so excited during the build that I neglected to take pictures. Well, guess I better start with the second.
Here's the second tonfa on the bench, next to my second Snake Eyes visor fabrication (I was basically blind in my first visor from last year). I've already epoxied the wooden stop plug into the middle of the conduit, and started the internals of the handle trigger mechanics.
