Shockwave And Hardball Customs


Topes

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I have a couple of more customs done. 1988 was my favorite year for Joes growing up. I'm 25 now, so back then was the year I was super into Joes. It was the only year where I had every figure on the cardback. Joe collecting went kind of downhill after that. Anyways, here's 2 customs for 2 of my favorite characters: Shockwave and Hardball. I went with the Night Force scheme for Shockwave cuz I never owned one as a kid (still don't, and it was way easier to do...). For Hardball, I just went with the original. Please check em out and as always, critiques are more than welcomed.

Topes,

Those are REALLY nice! I'm not a big fan of Hardball, but what a great job you did. Shockwave is one of the best versions I've seen, period. And as always . . .let's get the parts list, bub.

Amazing work Topes. Question, how did you do hardball's right arm, and the knife holster on shockwave's chest. Great customs!

Thanks for the comments everyone. I could finnaly make these the guys the way I wanted them to look after winning a lot of BBI figs on ebay. (It's where I got all the addons - pouches, shells, etc...) For those who would like the parts list:

 

Shockwave

Head - Depth Charge w/ Gung Ho hat

Torso - 88 Shockwave

Upper Arms - ST Night Creeper

Lower Arms - Wide Scope

Waist, Lower Legs - VvV Beachhead

Upper Legs - ST Gung Ho

 

Hardball

Head - BBI Swat

Torso - Wave 7 Snake Eyes

Arms - VvV Alpine

Waist - CLAWS

Upper Legs - ST Gung Ho

Lower Legs - JvC Duke

 

TnT - I just dremelled off the handle of the knife and then drilled it to accomodate the Kamakura dagger. For Hardball, he's just holding the original gun in his hand.

 

Hopefully soon, I'll have Hit & Run and Spearhead ready too. They're next on the list. As well as 88 Storm Shadow, which I know GILTY has been looking for for a while. Thanks again guys...
