The first GI Joe Computer Specialist. This is made from similar parts to the earlier Sgt. Hacker custom. The head is a Leatherneck v3? cast and the lap top comes from Power Team Elite. The vest is RIT Dyed black Ponda Boba jacket.

awesome, paul...

I think they have a very realistic/militaristic look to them, while hasbro's versions are no longer the neon figures of the 80's, their versions still dont scream realism. I like that pilot helmet. it might be useful as a helmet for a coruscant firefighter. check the vis.dic. for reference.

Well I try to do custom helmets for all pilots from both Star Wars and GI Joe. I know I posted them someplace on here...

Anyways, no haven't checked the visual dictionary source (which's text is often contradicted later on so warning). I used CorranHorn's helmets for most of the Star Wars ones in this case because he derrived from the X-Wing comics. Others like Jaina Solo's I made more based off her late NJO Goddess/Trickster persona. Ace's I originally wanted a Royal Flush to infer Poker Ace (which is where his Codename/callsign is derived from). Slip Stream's a bit harder to visualize, but thought the afterburners were good enough.

First, I'm going to frame and confine the discussion on these figures. I used RIT dye to create the black on all of them. The basic figures were Valor Vs Venom Storm Shadows. One was the 2004 version, the other two were the 2005 Mail Away version. I WILL NOT AND AM UNABLE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ON DYING YOUR SPECIFIC FIGURES!!!! There are too many combonations, variables, types of plastic, tinting and coloring of plastic, to want to attempt or undertake any of those questions. For those that still don't understand, DO NO ASK ME IF YOUR FIGURE CAN BE DYED TO THIS COLOR!

So onto the BLACK DRAGON NINJAS




Black Dragon Leader




To diferentiate him, he has Gold Dragons with a Red Dragon on his back. The colors are Testors Enamel Gold and Model Master Imperial Red. The eyes are painted Insignia White with Pen filled pupils.

Storm Shadow as Black Dragon Ninja





I used the Mail Away Storm Shadow with 2005 Gung Ho arms painted to a ligher flesh tone. He is in what i'm calling "traditional" Black Dragon design, Red Trim with Gold Dragon on his back. Same colors as before.

Black Dragon Ninja



Mail Away Storm Shadow with Single Pack Storm Shadow head. The head is painted Model Master Black with Insignia Red. Dragons are the same as Storm Shadow.

Going back to paint on this one, but this is a Cobra Commander in a black outfit (the snake has got to have style).

Cobra Commander




The black is Model Master Flat Black applied for the most part with a very large fan brush, Imperial Red, Steel for the shoulders and dry brushed on the collar; Eyes were painte Insignia White with marker pupils. Parts are Mission Disc head, chest, arms, with Dusty mission disc skirt and waist, upper legs (don't remember), and lower legs are Snake Eyes (comic pack). The staff comes from the Cobra Commander Mission Disc with the soundtab removed and the eyes painted imperial red and the teeth steel.


How many outfits does one evil leader need? (83 v1.1 swivel arm, 84 v2, 87 v3, comic pack 4, custom).

Actually I made most of my SW customs before you joined the board tongue.gif Now I'm really just waiting on the "right" parts or Hasbro to make certain EU figures as I'm pretty sure almost every Cantina and Jabba's palace fig will be made within a couple years before the line becomes almost an online exclusive or worse, dead.

Red Ninja. Just a repaint of a v2 Storm Shadow with Model Master Imperial Red. I left the Tatoo alone. The ropes were touched with Model Master Leather.

Thre streak was in jeopardy today....High temps forced the air conditioning on (so fumes) and humidity (impedes paint drying) forced me to go another way. Dying. I was holding off on a cobra trainer, but Spectre suggested i make one for the Blue Shirts I did earlier. So here he is, the replacement for Big Boa (if you follow the comic he died) or a Big Boa Underling....

Cobra Trainer


Head is GI Joe Valor vs Venom Razor Claw v1, Valor vs Venom Duke v20 torso, Spytroops Shipwreck upper legs, Spytroops Flint lower legs, Razorclaw waist piece (whith small cobra symbol), Upper arms are Valor vs Venom Duke v20, and lower arms are Sgt Stalker v4. The MP5s are casts in which the stocks broke off, and than dyed. No Paint on the upper body, all of it is RIT Dye black. (the neon yellow of the arms turned puke green, unplanned and unexpected but works imo). The lower legs were painted flat black a long time ago.

An Update of earlier work...The Cobra Blue Shirts.





Just added the SpyTroops vest with the Cobra Symbol on it. I'm still looking for 1 More vest to complete out the team (So if you can help let me know, we can come to some sort of mutal arrangement is how Skywalker put it to the Hutt).

After seeing this, you'll begin to understand the question asked here but there is more to it...

Helicopter Medic


Chap Mei Tank Commander Head, Chap Mei Paramedic Body, v3/v4 (EcoWarrior <sic>) Flint arms (or so i'm told), Chap Mei Tank Commander Legs. The only paint is the Medium Military Green.

Lt. Claymoore


This character was inspired by a two part epsisode from the GI Joe Cartoon, "The Traitor". Claymoore is a Cobra troop who doesn't believe in Dusty's defection and spies on him for Tomax and Xamot. This is an updated of that character using a Roadblock SpyTroops head, Razorclaw v1 torso and upper arms, Dusty (irony there folks) lower arms and legs, and a Cobra Commander GI Joe v Cobra waist piece. The color is Dark Blue diluted about 10% with Guard Red (Model Master) and Flat Black paints used. The kneepads, belt, forearm pads, Cobra sigil and boots where given a Semi-gloss Finish, and the cloth parts were given a Clear Flat application.

Saw Viper






Don't have any of the purple/red Nemesis Enforce stylin' viper that Hasbro spit out towards the end of the line. This was much a test of reproducibility as it was mixing dying and painting. This was the first time I tried to reproduce the same figure since I did the TeleVipers/Vipers after my finals got over in December las year. First off, the parts are Desert Scorpion/Neurotoxin (color variants of same VvV fig) head, chest, arms, with Razor Claw/Razor Trooper waists and legs. Everything but the heads was RIT Dyed black. Than, the Cobra Sigil was painted on. Than, Testors Purple was painted where ever there was a "scaled" texture and on the leg straps. Desert Scorpion's head was than painted Flat Black, Steel on the Visor, and Light Skin toned on the neck. Equiped them with a backpack from the Crimson Guard 6 packs, and gave them Comic Pack Rock and Roll's gun.

I was always a big fan of the Saw Viper back in the day, I like the way yours turned out a different look to him with out sticking out in the battlefield as a big purple guy.

A little off topic...Toys R Us has a 6 pack called Cobra Procession. It comes with what looks like 4 "vintage" Range Vipers, hooded Cobra Commander with a cloth robe and Baroness with removeable glasses, this is probably the best looking Baroness I've seen. All figues are in red uniforms, and comes with a red throne also known as a Jedi Counsel chair.

Thought you might want to if for nothing else the Baroness figure.
