The slipcase a cobra based on Snake's tattoo with the Escape From New York logo on the front with and artwork of Snake on the back. When you remove the slipcase, There is another piece of Plissken art. When that is removed, it reveals a plastic tray that secures the figure and accessories.
The likeness of Kurt Russell is very good. The profile resembles him the most.
The paint application for the five o'clock shadow, eye, hair, boots and patch are all very good.
The jacket fits snug and has wear on it to look more realistic. The camo design on the pants are spot on. The trademark shirt with zippers is on the money. The motor cross boots have great detail.
There are numerous points of articulation on this figure.

The Verdict :
I think Snake is very good, but not great. I feel Sideshow missed the mark on a perfect likeness of Kurt Russell. The figure and accessories feel fragile. Sideshow isn't quite at the level of Hot Toys, but this is a good effort. This figure is only recommended to the diehard Escape From New York fan.
