Recommended Posts

I know what you're thinking.. wait, where's the poll? Well, please read on, and in the rules, everything will be explained...

 

To keep out all the shennanigins that have plagued some of the last couple of custom contests, I wanted to do something a little different. In the next couple of posts, you'll see all the entries, they'll be listed with whatever info the creators supplied me, some may only be one picture, some may be a slew of pictures, but please take the time and overlook all the entries, read the descriptions/bios/parts list/etc... and take into account that everyone put a lot of work into what they've entered, however you judge, please do so with that in mind.

 

Now, on to some of the rules:

 

In order to keep this fair, The only people that are allowed to vote are TNI members who have been a member on or before Jan 1st 2007, or if you entered into the contest, then no matter what your sign up date is, you can vote... This will help weed out the stinkers that would be tempted to either sign up multiple user names to vote, or have their friends or family sign up to vote..I know, sounds silly, but if you've been here awhile, you know it's been done... If I notice anyone that doesn't fall under the guidelines voting, I have every right to delete their vote, and if I find a member abusing this rule in anyway(like, using old multiple accounts), then I have every right to disqualify that member from the contest and fly Clam out there to personally give you a beat down...with his chin!!!

 

I'm leaving all board names off of the entries till the contest is over, I'm hoping this will help in having people actually vote for the customs and not the customizer. So, how do you vote you ask? Simple...

 

To vote, after whatever comment you want to make, whether it's critiquing them all or listing your favs, simply type in:

My Vote: ______________

 

Please make sure to put it in bold, that way, when it's over and I can tally up all the votes, I don't have to hunt through the entire post looking for the vote... it's that simple... but please, make sure to but it in BOLD!.

 

You can go back and edit your "vote" as many times as you want.. but whatever is in the post when the contest is over and I lock the thread, that's the "vote" that will be counted... no "if", "and" or "buts" about it.

 

I know some may feel a little uncomfortable on voting for their favorite in "public" like this, but I feel this is the best way to make things fair for all the customizers that put all their hard work into the customs for us to see.. I'm pretty sure everyone here is mature enough and can take the voting results like a big boy..

 

I did want to point one tidbit out, I'm not going to name the customizer, and the only reason I'm bringing this up so that A. hopefully it doesn't happen in the future and B. so that the people I've asked about it, know the outcome. There was one entry I got that wasn't technically a team, it was remakes of some Joes in their V1 outfits.. there was a back story for them, but even with that, I didn't feel they qualified as a team... I spent a lot of time polling, questioning, talking about and writing up the rules for the contest and I didn't think it was fair for the parties that did follow the rules to the "T".. After discussing it with a couple members that are involved.. the over all consensus was that they didn't fall under the whole "team" aspect of the contest.. so I just wanted to let that out there, for those who knew about it, and know it's not in the contest...

 

I don't mind if you guys "pimp" the contest at other boards(I did), but please don't post it and say.. "Go vote for me, I did "such-and-such" customs".. to me, that's cheating... one of the things that got out of hand in one of the other contests...

 

For those who entered.. please wait till this contest is over before posting your customs here or on any other boards.. doing so will result in a disqualification!!

 

Lastly, I want to personally thank all the contestants who did enter.. with a total of 10 entries, that's far more than I thought would pull through, so I thank you personally for that...

 

I'm leaving the voting thread open till April 15th and will close it at 11:59 PM, that's probably too much time, seeing it's only for voting, but I just want to be as fair as possible just in case anyone is on vacation or scrambling to do their taxes at the last min...

 

Any problems with pics, titles or sescriptions, or if for some reason, I completely forgot someone, please feel free to PM me with any questions or concerns.. thank you and Good luck all!!!

 

now.. on with the prizes and finally the customs...

ENTRY #1:

The Night Creepers

 

The Night Creepers are an organization with roots back to the middle of the 20th century. Their reason for existence has changed drastically and they are far removed from their ancestors. Originally founded by the Jewish leaders of the world after the horrors of the Holocaust to insure that it would never happen again, they were once known as The Knights Of David. Now assassins for hire, they take jobs according to monetary value and not for the good intentions they were originally founded on..

 

Dice-- Aleph's right hand man. Originally said to be too ruthless for Cobra's Night Creepers just so CC would hire him into the bodyguard position left open by the traitorous Storm Shadow.

 

Head: Guillotine modded

Torso: Hacker

Arms: Guillotine

Waist: Croc Master

Legs: Venomous Maximus

 

Banzai--Originally sent to infiltrate The Night Creeper organization on behalf of G.I. Joe, he came to follow their way of life after seeing how far their influence went and now works as a double agent for The Night Creepers.

 

Head: Nunchuk modded

Torso: Nunchuk

Arms: Nunchuk

Waist: Nunchuk modded with Sculpey to fit to the torso and added the belt

Legs: Zartan

 

Aleph--Leader of The Night Creepers. Started Cobra's Night Creepers as a way to have soldiers ready when needed. The Cobra Night Creeper's are not the actual organization though, they are only foot soldiers trained by Aleph.

 

Head: T-Crotch Heavy Duty modded with Sculpey ad tassels from VvV Slice

Torso: Snakeeyes modded

Upper Arms: Guillotine

Lower Arms: T-Crotch Storm Shadow

ENTRY #2:

Code Red

 

 

Code Red is the name of COBRA Commander's elite Crimson division that is above the Python Patrol. Each elite COBRA trooper is forced to endure the most rigorous training in the battlefield by Big Boa. Only a select few can manage to earn a spot in this faction, and when they do, they must achieve or exceed COBRA Commander's highest standards...or pay the price. It is currently unknown who commands Code Red, but it has been rumored that the CLAWS commander and Neo-Viper Commander have previously been in command.

ENTRY #3:

Frontal Assault Unit

 

When heavy firepower and skill is needed to turn the tide, G.I. Joe's Frontal Assault Unit is sent ahead to overwhelm Cobra Forces. With G.I. Joe Pointman SPEARHEAD leading the way with Advanced Infantry Specialist HIT & RUN, and Heavy Machine Gunners REPEATER and MANGLER laying cover fire, following G.I. Joe battalions have the advantage to turn the tide on COBRA!

Entry #5:

The Cure

 

 

The Plague has been unleashed. After a series of devastating attacks against key locations, this group of thirteen troopers have proven to be Cobra's most dangerous threat to date.

 

It is going to get worse.

 

Pleased with the Plagues run of successful incursions, Cobra is now preparing a second & third supplemental wave of these troops. Having already secured the very best from their respective fields, waves two & three will be augmented with genetic & cybernetic enhancements. An undercover Joe agent has uncovered & revealed the location of only of the four rumored testing sites where these soldiers will be spawned. An all out military assault against this one facility is not an option, as fanatical Cobra agents within the structure will surely set off a self destruct mechanism long before the compound is taken, destroying all evidence & clues to the other testing sites.

 

There is due cause for worldwide concern.

 

Enter the CURE. Their mission is to infiltrate the known stronghold, obtain the whereabouts of the other test sites & intel on the specific processes involved in the super soldier creation. They must not be detected. Cobra must never know their operations have been breached.

 

Snake Eyes: Legendary silent commando. To infiltrate unseen & without trace, there is noone better.

 

Spirit: A Tracker of the highest merit. His keen sense of observation may uncover the thread bneeded to pull apart Cobra's latest tapestry.

 

Low Light: An expert in nighttime covert operations. Keeping outside the compound, he may prove integral should the insertion team be discovered by enemy forces or if a path is needed to be cleared of alerted sentries.

 

Lone Star: Daughter of a sheriff killed by Cobra forces in the 83' Springfield incident. As a medical scientist, she will procure the information necessary to provide us with any edge we might have over these new PLAGUE troopers.

Entry #6:

Elite Taipan Force

 

 

TIRED OF THE ENDLESS FAILINGS OF REGULAR COBRA FORCES, COBRA COMMANDER PUT THE CALL OUT TO ALL CURRENT AND FORMER COBRA OPERATIVES TO TRY OUT FOR AN ELITE SPECIAL MISSION FORCE . STILL HAVING SOME FAITH IN FIREFLY AND DESTRO, COBRA COMMANDER PUT THEM IN CHARGE OF DEVISING A PROGRAM TO BREAK THE BEST OF THE BEST DOWN. COBRA INTEL REPORTS THE TRAINING IS HARDER THAN US ARMY SPECIAL FORCES SELECTION AND US NAVY SEAL TRAINING ----COMBINED.

 

ONCE SELECTED THE FOUR PERSON TEAM WOULD BE TRAINED IN ALL COBRA ELITE FORCE SPECIALITIES SUCH AS SNOW SERPENT, EELS, CRIMSON GUARD, NIGHT CREEPER, ALLEY VIPER, TELEVIPER, NIGHT VIPER ETC ETC.

 

TAIPAN OPERATES WHEN THE MISSION CALLS FOR A QUICKSTRIKE AND REQUIRES MORE THAN JUST FIREFLY, ALTHOUGH FIREFLY HAS BEEN KNOWN TO LEAD THE TEAM, HE IS NOT A PART OF TAIPAN FORCE

 

IT IS NOT KNOWN IF THERE ARE MORE THAN ONE TAIPAN TEAM OR MANY

IF THERE IS MORE THAN ONE TAIPAN FORCE IT COULD MEAN THE END OF GI JOE AND AMERICA AS WE KNOW IT, FOR TAIPAN IS THE DEADLIEST SNAKE IN THE WORLD.

 

GHOST BEAR :

EVERYONE KNOW HIS STORY UP TILL NOW, TIRED OF THE SPORADIC MISSIONS HE WOULD GET CALLED UP ON HE DECIDED TO GIVE TAIPAN A TRY TO EARN A FULL TIME PAYCHECK.PLUS HE WAS TOLD HE WOULD GET FIRST DIBS ON ALL THE NEW EQUIPMENT BEFORE IT WAS USED IN REGULAR COBRA ARMIES. GHOSTBEAR EASILY PASSED SELECTION EVEN IMPRESSING C.C. AND FIREFLY SO MUCH HE WAS CHOSEN TO LEAD THE TEAM

 

BOOMSLANG:

 

A FORMER VIPER WHO FELT HIS SKILLS AS A FORMER SWAT TEAM MEMBER AND ARMY SNIPER ALWAYS FELT HIS SKILLS WEREN'T BEING USED PROPERLY AS A REGULAR VIPER.THATS WHY HE JUMPED AT HE CHANCE TO TRY OUT FOR TAIPAN. DISHONORABLY DISCHARGED FROM THE ARMY FOR SNIPING IRAQI CITIZENS.HE JOINED COBRA EXPECTING A LOT MORE THAN JUST BEING A VIPER. EXCELLING IN ALL TRAINING AFTER SELECTION, HE IS THE “GO TO GUY “ WHEN THINGS GET TOO HAIRY.

 

BOOMSLANG CHOSE HIS NAME AFTER A INTERNET SEARCH CAME UP WITH NOTHING THAT HADN'T BEEN USED IN THE COBRA ORGANIZATION YET , SO BOOMSLANG FIT ----ESPECIALLY SINCE IT’S A SMALL VERY FAST POISONOUS SNAKE FROM EASTERN AFRICA ----HE KINDA LIKED IT

 

DIAMONDBACK:

 

THE ONLY FEMALE TO ENTER TAIPAN SELECTION, IMPRESSED ALL THE OTHER CANDIDATES AND THE COMMAND ELEMENT AS WELL IN HER RELENTLESS WILL AND DETERMINATION, AT ONE POINT DURING SELECTION SHE SLIPPED PAST GUARD AT A HYDROFOIL DOCKS AND STOLE A FULLY ARMED HYDRO FOIL AND KEPT IT HIDDEN THE REMAINING 2 WEEKS, ALTHOUGH THE HER AND THE REAMINING CANDIDATES PAID FOR IT ON A DAILY BASIS NO ONE BROKE. BECAUSE THEY WOULD ALL GO THERE AT NIGHT AND USE ITS MANY EMNITIES NO ONE HAD DURING SELECTION.

 

THE DAUGHTER OF A HIGH POWER HOLLYWOOD STUDIO OWNER,DIAMONDBACK CHOSE THE, GEN X LIFESTYLE OF SKATEBOARDERS, MOTOCROSS, & RAPROCK WHICH ATTRACTED HER TO EVERY X-GAMES EVER .

 

ZANDAR:

 

DOWN ON HIS LUCK AGAIN , BEING SCORNED FROM COBRA AND THE DREADNOKS, ZANDAR TRIED THE MOTOCROSS CIRCUIT . DISGUISED AS A RICH KID FROM THE EAST COAST ZANDAR QUICKLY DOMINATED THE RACES AND ENTERED THE X-GAMES FOR THE HIGH JUMP AND FREESTYLE TRICK EVENTS. THAT’S WHEN HE MET DIAMONDBACK, SHE QUICKLY FELL FOR ZANDAR. WHEN ZANDAR GOT THE CALL FOR TAIPAN FORCE HE WASN’T SURE IF IT WAS A TRICK BY COBRA COMMANDER TO GET HIS REVENGE. SO HE DISGUISED HIMSELF AND ENTERED WITH A LITTLE PUSHING BY DIAMONDBACK . ONCE ON THE TEAM HE REVELED HIMSELF TO EVERYONE, COBRA COMMANDER FORGAVE HIM FOR HIS ACTIONS AGAINST COBRA, BUT ONLY BECAUSE DIAMONDBACK THREATENED TO LEAVE IF ANY HARM CAME TO ZANDAR, AND COBRA COMMANDER FELT SHE WAS TOO MUCH OF AN ASSET.

Entry #7:

Serpentor's Assassins

 

 

With all the turmoil within cobra serpentor created a team to specially take care of traitors each of the four member team has a special way of dealing with them

 

cesspool- the leader of the team he dips are sprays his target in bio. chemicals and acid

 

decapitator-the name says it all he makes quick work of the poor souls who cross serpentor by loping off their head with massive axe

 

plague- he has a custom gun that shoots bullets loaded with diseases such as the black plague and many other nasty and fatal things can be used but what makes this weapon so deadly is that when the target is infected the disease are enhanced so they kill with in 35 min

 

big boa- he was such a good trainer serpentor rewarded him by giving him a spot on the team and the option of using what ever means he wanted to kill.after thinking it over he decided to use fire because he loved the smell of burning flesh . equipped with a super heating flame thrower that can melt metal in a matter of mins. boa burns his victims alive

 

 

 

 

cesspool-decimator body,cesspool head,headman legs

decapitator-flak viper body,cobra commander head,various spawn parts

plague-ally viper legs,night creeper body and head,gas mask batman,shoulder pads some big lots fig.

Entry #8:

D.E.F.

Domestic Entanglement Force

 

 

The D.E.F. is the latest sub unit of Counter Terrorist Group Delta. They are designed to focus primarily terrorist cells within the U.S. Shockwave is an urban warfare expert but too often he is needed over seas in hostile territory. This crew was recruited from to keep American Cities safe from Cobra, M.A.R.S., Dreadnoks or whatever else may threaten them.

 

Bullet Proof: This Brave leader served in combat in a regular military unit before receiving training for special ops. I choose him to the unit because of the same reason he earned his name. He has no fear. He bravely runs into impossible situations, never looses cool and appears bullet proof as he escapes scratch less. God must be watching over this man, he has seen more combat pre Joe than any other member on my unit and has not received so much as a scratch. With confidence like this he can lead anyone.

 

Parts: head Heavy duty

Arms: Saw Viper

Torso Big Brawler

Waist and legs: vvv gung-ho

 

The original def had a bulletproof that looked more like a regular solider than an urban fighter. I always pictured the d.e.f. Moving beyond drugs as Joe no doubt needs several skilled urban members.

 

MayDay: Mayday is another quick thinker. She earned her nickname because her quickness almost appears to be pre-cognition. While a rough and tough tomboy from kindergarten on she was recognized as gifted and talented and before enlisting straight into our unit she was an FBI profiler. She reads her opponent, determines their next moves and begins to block before an attack is ever started. Mayday is one of the few women of our team and like no other. She abhors make up and love stogies, and when on Base hangs out with Clutch and Shipwreck as if she were on of the guys.

 

Parts head: Poft 2 leah Boush disquise.

Torso: Bombstrike

Arms dtc saw-viper

Waist and legs vvv wild bill.

Going for new characters and wanted to toughen up her ddp look.

 

Lockdown: A bright young man who spent his time in the army as E.O.D. expert before transferring to our unit. He enjoys technology and made the perfect candidate for Hi-Tech’s newly designed riot gear. We can monitor the team through in gear cameras, and Lockdown enjoys his suits haz-mat and blunt force protection while the fingers are still flexible enough to work with the most miniature explosive device.

 

Head: steel brigade

Torso/upper legs: vvv firefly

Waist: Gung ho

Arms: dtc saw-viper + green stuff

Lower legs: Neo-viper

Helmet: jvc duke +green stuff

 

Interesting new sigma char, thought I’d threw him in as the rookie on the team. Added last minute green stuff to improve his look.

 

Widescope: I don’t wish to say widescope is the brawn of the unit for what he does requires skill. He is both an excellent sniper and a hand-to-hand combatant. He is a very diverse solider and former Swat team member. He even has dog handling experience should the need arise to search for explosives, drugs, or important missing persons. He takes his job very serious and has a great deal of respect for his team members.

 

Head: Btr Gung-ho

Arms: Grunt (with swivel wrist added)

Waist and Legs: Jvc nf grunt

Torso vvv gung-ho

 

I added swivel wrist so that all on the team could have it but I kept him the most unique to counter play that he started out as shockwave clone.

Entry #10:

Advanced Recon/ Tactical Element

 

 

Background: The A.R./T.E. (Advanced Recon/ Tactical Element) was created to operate outside of normal military channels. They serve several purposes (deep recon, p.o.w. rescue, counter terrorist, etc.) but their

operational mandate is to locate and apprehend or eliminate high level Cobra

operatives by whatever means necessary.

 

The team consists of Flint (intelligence officer/ team CO), Gung Ho(rifleman), Wet Suit (demolitions/sabotage) and Snake Eyes (covert operations). The A.R./T.E. is outfitted with prototype weapons, conducting field tests on equipment that government contractors hope to put in production. Team members were selected based on their length of service and ability to operate without direct supervision from the Joint Chiefs.

These operators are authorized to commandeer any U.S. military asset (short

of nuclear weapons) to execute their mandate.

They all were very great customs that looked like everyone really put much effort and time into each and it was a very, and I mean very tough choice to pick from because they all rock.

 

But after thinking about it a bit I had to choose the following!

 

My Vote: The Night Creepers

 

Congratulations to all the customizers because I would like you to know that I would buy every figure I have seen above! :)

 

P.S. Excellent background stories too!
