Mega-Marines redux (Batch 3 added 4-1-07)

Postby Matthew on Tue Feb 13, 2007 12:22 am

I've been working on a redux of the Mega-Marines using the original Mega-Marines plus some new recruits.

In the end I will have a total of 8. Here is the first batch

Gung-Ho: Mega Marines Commander

Next is Mirage. Nothing special here, just a new waist to hold the machine gun stabilizer arm. I based the whole group off of this color scheme.
Mirage: Heavy Weapons
Image

I included Dodger because he was the only surviving member of the Battle Force 2000.
Dodger: Heavy Ordinance
Image

Mainframe's parts are a hodge podge. I almost made a Devil's Due Mainframe with the legs, the head was a no brainer, and the torso seemed to work well for a futuristic computer guy.
Mainframe: Computer Expert
Image

Batch 2 will include Blast-Off, Clutch, Sgt. Slaughter (using the Mega-Viper mold), and Robo-Joe (using a Cyber-Viper mold)

Let me know what you think.

Great job i too like that color scheme off of mirage. I recently looked back at the orginals on yojoe.com and your improvements really make a difference. I had the 2 old monsters but none of the marines that i can recall. IF these were on the shelves it might have been a different story. my fav is clutch btw.

woo hoo!

Batch 3 finally finished. I was going strong till I had to wait on the Falcon parts from Alyosha. Then I lost steam. This weekend I finished him up. So without further adoo, here are the last of the Mega Marine

Leatherneck: Mech Driver
Image


Sci-Fi: Laser Trooper/Pilot
Image


Scarlett: Sniper
Image


Falcon: Medic
Image


Robo-Joe: Tech Expert
Image

I hope you like them. I'll try to take a group shot next time I visit Chad (he has the better camera :D)

Great job! Love the colors and schemes.

Any plans to do any "aliens"?

Those would be great. Sculp some flames on one of the eggs and have Blast-off torching it.

I would like to put in a request for Sarge: get him "The Body"'s gatlin gun and make a battle-damaged, acid-burned version.

Well, I'm making a Rangers team that will be comparable to the Predator team. Here is the lineup

Duke (DILLON)
Flint (DUTCH)
Roadblock (BLAINE)
Repeater (MAC)
Footloose (PONCHO)
Stalker (Hawkins)
Spirit (BILLY)

Roablock will be sporting Ventura's mini-gun

acid burn version, kinda neat. Can't do a Slaughter though, since the figure I made him from is kinda hard to get :D
