  1. CRIMSON ASP CARDBACK I started out with the idea that all I would have to do is recolor my Resolute Baroness card art with just a few modifications, but ended up actually repainting the entire thing.
  2. I dont get it...i remember, look up, and spoon feed you a direct quote from the creator all this intellectual property to date, and you just keep going like you know better than even he does. Are you writing for the new films? Because it sounds like you know more about Star Wars than George Lucas and maybe 50% of all fandom. you don't get it because either you do not understand story and structure or are so confused by movies that you have no idea how to identify who the main characters are of a movie and a movie's plot unless you are told. the rest of the movie going public can go

  4. "I get asked all the time, 'What happens after "Return of the Jedi"?,' and there really is no answer for that," he said. "The movies were the story of Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker, and when Luke saves the galaxy and redeems his father, that's where that story ends." - George Lucas, LA Times 2008 http://articles.latimes.com/2008/may/07/entertainment/et-lucas7 the movies are also the story of Han Solo, Princess Leia and Yoda, but that isn't the same as those characters being the main characters of the movies who the plots are about. and who the main characters that the plots are
  5. except Star Wars isn't about Anakin's story, so his story arc being complete is irrelevant to any new movies. Luke Skywalker is the protagonist of the original trilogy and that is who the OT's story is about. Just because Anakin is redeemed at the end of ROTJ doesn't make the story of the OT or the entire series about him. His redemption isn't even a sub plot that is pursued throughout the OT; it is a subplot of ROTJ only. And Anakin isn't even the protagonist of the prequels. he is a supporting character like Han Solo in the OT. The protagonist propels the story, and the story of th
  6. BIG LOB modified from the GIJCC's art, but I wasn't a fan of the face or pose that they had painted.

  8. Since giving up customizing figures, I have been trying to find the time to redo my site to switch the focus to custom cardart, especially classic cards as opposed to the modern cardbacks I had been creating. CLAYMORE CROSS-COUNTRY ROCKY STARDUSTER
  9. Stalker is a cool design, although kind of plain. But in modern form there is enough to work with to make him stand out. Neo-Viper Commander differs slightly from my Neo-Viper custom. I know what you are thinking -- Sand Viper was part of wave 6 during Spy Troops. But I had no interest in making the Desert CLAWS, and Beach Head will be coming in wave 3 with Dr. Mindbender so that would leave Sand Viper with no one to be paired with, so it made sense to bump him up and attach him to Dusty. Nothing terribly spectacular about Dusty, but Sand Viper is probably my favorite of all of thes
  10. NUNCHUK vs FIREFLY My favorite of the two packs from wave 2. both of the original figures were actually well done, even though they didn't quite mimic the illustrations, but the greater appeal of this set is that the character illustrations are fantastic and great ideas for modern updates. The Nunchuk art differs far more from the figure than Firefly -- the pant legs are different plus, the sash on his torso straps, and most importantly the face is just more rugged. Firefly, on the other hand, simply benefits from the update. I've always been a big fan of the JvC Zartan design, incl
  11. yeah, I'm not a fan of ROC Snake Eyes head either, but the JvC Snake Eyes had a sculpted mouth so it worked to replicate that.
  12. ON-CALL And last but not least, everyone's favorite horribly frankensteined mail-away G.I. Joe Reservist appropriately code named ON-Call. wave 2 coming soon.
  13. DUKE vs COBRA COMMANDER The art for Duke is nearly flawless as a 2001 update for the character. Then there was the awful figure. the JvC wave 4 Duke was never needed, Hasbro should have resculpted this design in o-ring construction as far as I am concerned. Cobra Commander suffers the same fate. maybe not as fantastic a design as the rest, but the figure didn't do much with it, even though it was corrected somewhat in wave 3. GUNG-HO vs DESTRO I have always loved this Gung Ho design, and the t-crotch figure is the best of the bunch, especially the art accurate clean shaven version
  14. HEAVY-DUTY vs COBRA C.L.A.W.S. While the design for Heavy Duty doesn't particularly capture Heavy Duty, it is still a really great modern take on a soldier. Gas mask is removable and fits over his head. None of the CLAWS figures ever came close to capturing how great the card art is. If Hasbro ever made the figure to match, it would be one of the great Cobra troops of all time. SNAKE EYES vs STORM SHADOW Who really needs more of these two? I do if they are based on kick-ass designs, and this version of Storm Shadow is fantastic; too bad the figures never came close to capturing thi
  15. Should be my favorite, as Frostbite is a perfect rendition of the art, and arctic figures are my favorite, but it loses out on the basis of Cobra Moray being more interesting to me than the Neo-Viper
  16. While the new sculpt figures are much maligned, there is no doubt that it was a retail favorite who loved the price point for two figures and were willing to supplement them with a variety of playsets and vehicles. for all it's shortcomings, the line was bigger and better in the market than the beloved 25th line and even ROC, despite having nearly nothing in media tie-ins. personally, I'm a big fan of that era, even if the figures didn't live up to the art that was provided. that's what customizing is for I suppose. Ironic, that I spent the new sculpt era customizing them into vintage

  18. I've already made PYTHONA, and Hasbro gave us NEMESIS ENFORCER, so it was time to finish Cobra-La, but cartoon style. GOLOBULUS ROYAL GUARD
  19. I'm a pretty big fan of NF so I wanted to see how they would look in modern form on card.
  20. PYTHONA probably my third go round at Pythona; the main difference being the cloak. All-in-all, probably my favorite I have done. CROSS-COUNTRY I'm not the biggest Cross-Country fan, but I love his Marvel look that minimizes the white except for the shoulder armor. Had a friend ask me to make him a Cross-Country, but having done several in the last few months I only agreed to if he would take a Marvel version. he accepted. MERCER Same friend wanted a Mercer. After having made several recently, I prodded him to allow me to make it accurate to the original art with blond hair.
  21. IRON GRENADIER I'm not a big IG fan, but I really can't stand the Armored Cobra Commander IG's that were released, and released again, and then released some more.
  22. Couple of new custom carded figures I made for a friend. Like I've said before, I've never fancied myself a good photographer.

    COLONEL BREKHOV DAINA SHRAGE STORMAVIK HORROR SHOW DRAGONSKY SGT. MISHA WONG I modeled the original 5 after their look in issues 6 and 7 wearing plain khaki. Dragonsky was probably the trickiest to figure out how to actually make the figure look like the comic design, but after figuring it out was the simplest to actually execute; the key was using the ROC Night Adder figure to make him larger than the rest. he's got a Serpentor head underneath the Para-Viper helmet. Sgt. Misha's glasses were the biggest pain to do. and if there is one inaccuracy in the group, it is that Wong is
  24. the hand-made aspect of it means there are slight differences between the two, thus each one is one-of-a-kind.
