New Customs: 11/04/11

Here is the last one of the series. I wanted to have a Cobra equivalent to Airborne, and Cobra already had the Gyro-Vipers, so Heli-Vipers fit the role perfectly. I was originally going to paint him like Gyro-Viper, but found that by painting the light purple black, he really fit in with [url=http://thegijoeindex.com/joeindex/usfigures/91/nightvulture1/Night Vulture[/url]

Lastly for my Field Artillerymen is Sub-Zero (which I've renamed Snow Storm). Because his SMOS is Field Artillery, I've made him my Grenadier for my Winter Operations fire team. I figured that the original M-60 was a bit much since he's already carrying mortar, so I gave him a M203/M16. Obviously, the main customizing here was the head. I despise the original head so I gave him a combo of Chief Torpedo with a hood from Han Solo.

On the same vein as Bazooka, here is my Hard Ball. After putting Bazooka together I figured that Hard Ball would be another great candidate for a flak vest. Then I saw Hard Ball in this video from the 1988 Action Vehicle Commercial Amazingly enough, he is wearing the Repeater vest. So here he is.

Next is Bazooka. I never had a problem with his jersey, but thought he needed more protection. Seeing the 12" Bazooka figure back in 2008 showed me exactly what I needed to do.

I have some customs that have been finished forever, just needed to post them. Here is my Star Brigade Duke. Not quite finished, as I plan on painting his straps. The helmet really is the only custom here.

Seems like i've seen a simliar bazooka before. It goes a long way in helping the figure! Still i'm a little iffy about him wearing that shirt in the field. at base? of course, but in the field even mostly covered it's a target.

Your duke is great! I love that helmet. The star brigade duke was the only duke i ever had has a kid and I ended up giving him away, but deeply regretting that. I'd love to see a ME sculpt of it. Your helmet fix really improves the look.

I agree. It isn't realistic, but I think color and individuality really gave GI Joe wiggle room and made it stand out from Sgt. Rock, Howling Commandos, etc.
