3 3/4 Adventure Team


Recommended Posts

This got off the ground as my backup entry in JoeRhyno's contest just in case my Night Creepers didn't meet the criteria. But the team kept growing so I was glad I could finish them all before posting them over here. So I finished Alpine and Scoop this weekend so now here they are. Based on Sigma Force from James Rollins' novels if any of you have read them, you know what my Adventure Team deals with.


Joe Colton--The team leader of course. I originally intended to use the Viper Lockdown figure(which is why they all have green tiger stripe camo and the burgundy headpiece) but after finishing the first couple teammates I thought it looked like crap so I knocked out this custom.




Tollbooth--Been wanting a new sculpt update of this guy for a while. Figured the team could use a military engineer to help them around the world. A man with his kind of knowledge can be very handy in the field.




Dialtone--Every team needs a communications guy so I went with someone who is used to special assignments. One of my favorite figures as a kid and a true shame that the only updates he ever got were repaints.




Scoop--The military journalist that has been reassigned to document the team's findings around the world. His pocket filled uniform is based on the hippie newspaper photographer back home.

Alpine--A mountain specialist would be a good idea when the team is traveling and researching around the world. Ya never know what kind of environment they will need to traverse to find their next clue. It could be up the side of a mountain or down a deep gorge. Either way a rope specialist is handy.




Bazooka--Just like peanut butter and chocolate Bazooka goes with Alpine. He's the muscle of the group and the weapons specialist when they run into trouble. The flop hat is a throwback to his Battle Corps fig while the jersey is an homage to his V1.




Now the token team shot:




And if you noticed that none of them are carrying weapons that is for a reason. I wanted the team to go into every assignment in the name of GI Joe but not as a military operation. So I was meticulous in parts choices to stay away from molded guns and grenades. Knives I let slide since a good knife is a helluva a tool in the wild. Not to say they don't have weapons available but they are hidden in the team Command Post

(ROCC--waiting on HTS right now) and HUMVEE (gonna customize a desert strike HUMVEE)

Thank you all for the compliments and I'm really glad yall are digging them.


DavAnthony of True Grit customs was where I got the idea for the Stalker head: http://www.loserville.us/~truegrittcustoms/dialtone.htm

Of all the figures Dialtonae may get redone simply because he is quite a bit shorter than the rest of the team. I am keeping the head though.
