i never really liked the original character

 

imho he looked like something from safari/jungle movies in the 50s + i'm partial on mustached characters ;)

 

still BrotherShane is right about the hommage you paid to the original fig

Recondo is one of my favs (mostly due to the "old" appearance of him..ie "from the 50's Safari movies" ^_^) however...I'm not a big fan of anything they've done with him since, especially using this particular head mold, with the grease paint mustache, resembling the one that Groucho Marx sported..

or in the case of this head mold with it...a woman in male costume (those eyes are just TOO pretty!)

 

The body mold, paint and accessories are awesome still! Nice work! :)

thanks for the feedback VH im going to mold on a stach. that should improve the face.

 

 

Yeah...your custom is already a HUNDRED TIMES better than the hasbro rendition! :)

 

My IDEAL Recondo would have an appearance more similar to the character that Jesse Ventura played in the movie PREDATOR...

Given a more rough & tough tobacco chewing and spittin'.. Jungle warfare redneck, tree-hugger hatin'..Clark Gable mustache sportin'.. Ernest Hemingway wannabe SAFARI dude..

and ya got my ideal version of a G.I.Joe named RECONDO!

 

Hasbro's version (as of late) all come off a little limp wristed and light on their loafers, and probably a little scared of snakes...especially COBRAS! @lol@
