Man, I haven't finished a custom in forever. I'm usually a JLU guy, but I've been moving away from that ever since the 25th Joe line launched. That line brought me back to where I started as a customizer *way* back in the day. Anyway, Snake Eyes v4. Strangely I was never a fan back in the day, but so some really nice customs of this guy and decided to make my own.

The parts breakdown is as follows:

Snake Eyes: v1
Upper Body: Hard Master
Lower Body: General Hawk
Upper Arms: Ripper
Lower Arms: Viper v1
Upper Legs: Storm Shadow v1
Lower Legs: Hard Master
Feet: Snake Eyes v2
Web gear: Cobra Officer

Since I'm a collector of carded figures, I also decided to make a custom card for this figure. The bubble is adhered to the cardback using Weldbond which dries 100% clear.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks Daniel. I'm not sure I'm really actually back in the saddle, but I'm at least next to the horse now. So, it's a start :0)

I like the logo on your package!

This does look professional.
Do you have any work-in-progress pics?
Or even a link to the original figure?

I don't really know what he looked like before your work.

Great packaging.

Thanks H-Balm. The in-progress figure looked pretty much the same. There was no sculpting required on this custom. Just parts swapping and paint - which appealed to me. I like the modular aspect of Joes and that you can create a bunch of different characters with existing parts.

I've been getting lax about in-progress images lately, but I'll try to get back in the habit.

Hello again! I just wrapped up a Ghost from CoD4 Modern Warfare custom to go along
with the rest of my Joes.

Image

Here's the parts breakdown:

Head: Beachhead
Body: Gen. Hawk
Arms: Gen Hawk
Hands: Desert Ambush Duke (RoC)
Upper Legs: Gen Hawk
Lower Legs: v1 Duke

I added the headgear and glasses to the head, the scarf is from Resolute Pilot (?) Destro
and the webgear is cobbled together from the accessories of Resolute Duke, v1 Roadblock
and some other figure I can't remember.

Here he is carded (front and back):

Image

The card art was a photoshop mishmash of stuff I could grab online and existing Joe card
art along with some PS tweaking.

And here's the turnaround of the figure:

Image

Thanks for looking, hope you guys dig it.

That's pretty sweet. I know a lot of COD/MW fans would LOVE to have that figure!
