A two year project finally ends

I've been a huge Sgt Savage fan since the original debut. It was my first Joe cartoon (minus reruns of the original) and despite their size comparison to some of my original joes, I loved em. I only wish they made more than Savage, Dynamite, and D-Day (for the good guys) or that I received any of them besides Savage. That being said I've always wanted to have the team and now I do, so away we go...

 

We'll start with the team shots and the reference in case any of you aren't familiar with the group

Savage will lead off here. I've never had an issue with the Capt. America knock off back story because I felt it was changed up enough, and lets face it, Cap doesn't exist in the Joe world, to me at least. A simple custom with a leg change for height and some paint. Resolute RB and copperhead from the waist down and battle kata RB elsewhere.

Next up is D-Day, the heavy weapons and hand-to-hand guy, Renegades Duke with a new head and paint.

Next is Dynamite, demolitions, in my update I made him partially blind in one eye, he does love his explosions and it seems fitting for him. POC Duke with Res. Alley Viper legs and a new noggin.

Grill, the mechanical savant and weapons guru, is a straight up Renegades Ripcord w/ new head.

Headbanger, the comms specialist, still enjoys his rock but gave up "hippy" for mutton chops. Res Beachhead and new head.

Mouse, not the pipsqueak from the movie but the REAL Mouse, is the largest member of the team and the hacker/computer expert. This guy was the challenge b/c of the height issue and after many many iterations and finally getting to drop the bazooka body in favor of the Retaliation RB (two of them I might add) I finally got a towering hulk of a figure

Last but not least is Tank, the vehicle specialist, he's listed as the least developed character but he still stands out to me; a short stocky fellow with a block for a head, very distinguishable. This ones a Resolute conglomeration, Stalker and Gung-Ho as I recall.

I'll tack these on as well so you can see just how much height difference there is with Mouse, and a custom RB and Major Barrage, with the normal figures

I'm very pleased with the final product and I think I did them some solid justice, let me know what you guys think!

 

Thanks to The Angel Forge for D-Day, Grill, Savage, and Headbanger

And Onyx Phoenix Productions for Mouse, Tank, and Dynamite

Awesome head sculpts all around, now if only my painting could do them justice.
