Mainframe

Since IDW has brought back G.I. Joe, there have been two things that have really changed my opinion about some of the characters. One was Chuckles, the take on him was fantastic in the Cobra series. Second was the use of Mainframe. Really made something special with him. He went from support to main character. I think that had more to do with Dixon making him Scarlett’s boyfriend.

The breakdown of parts. Low Light lower legs, DG Shipwreck upper legs. 30th Hawk torso and arms. Head is a modified Clutch. beard taken off and the jaw taken in a bit with a rotary tool. The sling across his chest is from the 25th Mainframe.

Red Shadows Muton

 

There are a lot of small joints to paint on this thing. The body is from a Hammer Ground Assault Drone from Iron Man 2. The right arm is from a Hammer Weapons Assault Drone and the alternative head from the Combat Ninja from G.I. Joe Retaliation Wave 3.5.

Still working on converting Some of the Hammer Ground Assault Drones to be Something Cobra. I’d like to think that they would have been the upgrade for the A.S.P.

Karmann Ghia

When I was 19 I got a Karmann Ghia. It was yellow. Just like the one in the photo. Since it was a Volkswagen, it sounded like a lawnmower. Which explain why the urge to build a go-kart diminished.

Also, the figure is a custom. Mouse lower arms, Delta Steel Brigade torso and Dollar General Shipwreck legs.

Back to the Bride

After taking a break on the Bride, I’m getting back to work on her. First coat of paint and seeing where the trouble spots for joint rub where I need to sand down. Also changed out her upper legs for Lady Jaye Retaliation so she’ll be taller. But those legs have to have primer because going from brown to yellow is a pain in the ass.

Speaking of pains in the ass… Working with yellow is a pain in the ass.

G.I. Joe #72 Star Viper Progress

When you kit bash a figure together, you have to figure out what parts work. The previous post was about the Star Viper who was able to sneak into The Pit.

Here is the pieces of the figure cobbled together. The head is from a spare Eaglehawk(Tomahawk) Lift Ticket. The body is from Outpost Defender Hawk and the legs belong to Cobra Commander.

There is a chance that I might use Duke, Renegades, feet on this figure.
