  1. Here's a suggestion, Aly. Cast me about 12 of those reworked Kamakura torsos. Those are awesome. I'd love to make an army of red ninjas with those... Also, if you try cutting off Kamakura's lower arms and gluing them onto Barrel Roll's rolled up sleeve, you get a nice looking finished piece. I did it for my Kamakura custom. Check out the pic... Other than that, all the WIP's look awesome. Nullifier's looking to be my favorite. Nice use of the Coil Crusher arms and torso. Kamakura WIP: Topes
  2. I'd say just wait for Curt or Walt to get em (GIJoeHQ and FiguresDirect). They always come through for everyone here, the prices are awesome, free shipping, and at least you know your money is going to a good place.
  3. Aly, you're killing me with all these customs you're cranking out. all of your work is giving me crazy inspiration to get some stuff done. Big Ben looks awesome! I was thinking of doing one too. Now I have a pretty good idea for a recipe...
  4. That's an awesome nod to the v1. I woulda never thought of using an Obiwan head. I thinks I'll be steal....borrowing that idea. I agree with Gilty though, he does look a little short, though. Some Night Force Gung Ho legs might even him out. And then maybe add some "mad eyebrows" to give him that "kill every MF'n Cobra in the room" look. Now where did I put my Leatherneck torso... Topes
  5. Hey xhairs, If you want, you could use VvV Alpines lower arms instead of Duke's. That way it'll look a little more proprtioned. Other than that, it looks great! Topes
  6. Now that Road Pig is gonna look badass when it's done. Perfect job so far, Aly. Topes p.s. I never really noticed it, but from certain angles, Blackout looks kinda like Dan Aykroyd. Ghostbusters custom, anyone?
  7. I agree. Rarely ever does a RAH head fit well with new sculpt parts. But you've made it work nicely. Good stuff! Topes
  8. Thanks for all the replies everyone. I appreciate any feedback I can get. For those that want to know the parts, here they are: Quick Kick Head, Torso, Lower Arms, Feet - JvC Nunchuk (obviously made to be Quick Kick anyway...) Hands - Spy Troops Depth Charge Waist - VvV Beach Head Legs - Spy Troops Barrel Roll Budo Head - Spy Troops Scalpel Torso - Spy Troops Overkill Upper Arms - Spy Troops Night Creeper Lower Arms, Lower Legs - VvV Beach Head Waist - 88 Budo Upper Legs - Spy Troops Tunnel Rat The helmet is too big for Budo, so I'm working on making one out of either an Overkill helmet or a CLAWS Commander one. I ws just excited to post these guys up right away. Thanks again for all the comment so far everyone. Topes
  9. I've been in martial arts ever since I was a kid, so the ninja aspect of GI Joe always appealed to me. Here's 2 more guys I had to add to the collection. Hopes ya like em... Topes
  10. I'll take a stab at it. How bout a Scalpel head w/ the hair from either the Zartan Duke mask or the Agent Faces Crimson Guard Commander mask...? Topes
  11. Thanks for all the comments guys. I wasn't sure about using the v2 camo but it seems to have gotten a nice response. My objective was to make each character without using parts from a previous version. That way, a whole new look could be created since these guys have been done to death. I'm glad everyone likes what they see. Bayushi - I just painted on the grey and cleaned up the edges with white. Cobra Command - that's kinda funny, since the head is Wave 7 Cobra Commander... Thanks again for the words everyone... Topes
  12. Hello everybody. What's this, like my 3rd post here? I usually stick to lurking around and checking stuff out, but I wanted to get feedback on some customs. I hope the pics work. Hopefully you guys should see some Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow pics showing up. I just finished them today. I'm happy with them, but it's always good to get feedback on ways to improve. Please let me know what you think. Thanks Topes
  13. To settle this little debate, I think the color was Camo Green in the Games Workshop paints. And then I mixed it with some Mithril Silver for the face and shoulder spikes. But you can't really see it on the shoulder spikes. Not as much as the face anyways... Hopes thats settles things. Laters, Topes
  14. This might be my first post, but I've been lurking for a while. I voted for Paratrooper Dusty because John did a sweetass job on him. Not to say none of the other customs were pretty sweet, this one just took it for me. Plus, John has to be one of my favorite customizers out there. Definately up there with the likes of Alyosha, TeknoKyo, DavAnthony, the list goes on... To give myself some crediblity here, I did the Brutus fig. Not meaning to brag, I just don't want to be another "Nameless Thug". Thanks to everyone who's voted for me so far. I appreciate it and I can't wait to see how this turns out. Topes (back to lurking...)
