look to start out with customs

Postby Alucard on Tue Jun 23, 2009 11:00 am

I was thinking about picking up the brush and making some custom joes... I was wondering:

1) can one use "corps" to mess around with and paint to get used to the whole process? I was thinking with start with something thats a bit generic like maybe a cobra trooper or something, is it possible?

2) does anyone do corps into joe customs (using just corps parts) around here? or anywhere I can see a few examples?

thanks!

Hey man. Starting out with CORPs! parts would be great. Are you planning on using the new style, or the old O-ring style?

The old style are very similar to Joes. The new one's are more similar to the T-Crotch Joes from 2002. I've never tried painting those figures. I have seen the new CORPs! style figures used a little, but mainly just the heads.

Well, I am not sure, I was at K-Mart the other day and I saw they sell them dirt cheap, which I gather is the not the O ring ones and the newer ones huh?

Well I was kind of thinking of taking them and redesigning them into a newer look for Cobra for my game I am running.. But anyhow, I guess the new ones that you can buy for dirt cheap are the T-crotch ones then.

Can you direct me to a site that sells the o rings so I can compare and maybe buy?

CORPS! have rereleased some of the old figures in a 8 or 10 pack (can't remember). Those have the o-ring. If they are 2-packed, then they are probably not o-ringed. If you look at the waist, you should be able to tell the difference.

Here is the site that I buy my o-rings from:
http://smalljoes.com/cgi-bin/pgen.cgi?S ... 6&Start=12

They also have some CORPS! on here. The new style is shown here:
http://smalljoes.com/cgi-bin/pgen.cgi?S ... 3&Start=12

while there are some o-ringed examples on the previous page.

Hope this helps!!
