I've always had an affinty for tech enhanced Joe stuff. And I don't think I've ever come across a tech'd out Duke that I really liked. So I made this fairly simple custom. I also have to admit that the parts list was inspired by Eduardimus Prime's Duke custom from earlier this year. I just went with a different color scheme.

i like the second picture bc of the irony...he's all tech'd out looking...

but...

a simple old fashioned blade will ALWAYS do the trick...

nice stuff!

Wow, lots of love for this guy this morning. Thank you, my fellow collectors. I think I need to order a whole bunch of those Beachhead figures, and make a whole squad in this style. The sculpted armor bits on that torso are really cool. It's a shame Hasbro didn't bother to paint poor Beachy. I imagine they'd have sold a lot more if they made it look as cool as the potential we're showing here on the Tank.

Parts list:
head - Resolute Duke
torso - POC Beachhead
legs - POC Dusty
hands - can't remember
belt - Captain America Hydra soldier
gun - can't remember
paints - Games Workshop brand

I see a Psyche-Out custom coming...great job.

I see a High-Tech custom (valor vs venom wiht sigma 6), the work is very creative and well done, the two things I like when doing my customs!
