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.
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.
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.
I made a promise to myself and to the Internet, that I would buy as many of the Cobra Viper troopers I could when they hit the streets. Today both Toys R Uses were hit up. All four were purchased.
They are glorious. Simply glorious.
A couple of older images that I did a while back. The Stormtrooper who’s walking out of the bathroom while the Hazards are walking in, I think I want to redo, but I always loved this image.
We’re getting closer with the Bride.
The first attempt at a Pussy Wagon met with a horrible fate. Painting gloss yellow on dark teal green is horrible. You have to white primer it first.
