Here's the original Sgt. Hacker if anyone doesn't know who he is: YOJOE.COM | Sgt. Hacker (http://www.yojoe.com/action/03/sgthacker.shtml)

I managed to score a Sgt Hacker in a trade so I decided to modernize him. Since his Spy Troops disguise is Firefly, I found it fitting to use a Firefly base. Didn't like the small feet so I swapped them out. I cut up some parts from the original and added it to his arms as well as that thing on his right thigh.

The card art shows a grappling hook on his belt so I added that too. Not a total 100% translation but I got the main parts that I wanted to transfer over, such as the knife on his webgear and the carabiner on his belt. Hope you guys like it.

Just for fun, his spy troops gear. Don't plan on ever using it again though...haha.

This was the very first spytroops figure I got, and it's potentially my favorite. Looks great. I wish Hasbro would release a second version.

Cool. I actually really liked Sgt Hacker, but I really wish he looked more like his card art. The only thing I'm missing is his rifle...haha. I figured the MP5K would be a suitable replacement given his specialty. Won't get in his way while he's at a computer terminal.

I think it works I like the details you gave him

Thanks! That's what I love about these figures, the plastic is very soft so it's easy to work with and allows me to do things like this. I may be tempted to use the wrist computer that is on Med Alert and modify it onto Sgt Hacker cause I think that makes a lot of sense.
