View Full Version : 25th Custom JoeCanuck

02-28-2009, 12:51 PM
Hi guys, Ive become a big fan of the JoeCanuck newsletter (I suggest you all subscribe, its free! JoeCanuck.com - A Canadian based message board and virtual HQ of the Canadian Joe Meet (http://www.joecanuck.com), some of the best Joe related quality articles ever) and learned about all the custom exclusive figures theyve had over the years at the conventions. Realizing Id never get my hands on any of the great exclusive figures theyve had, I decided to do the next best thing and make my own. Im starting with JoeCanuck (Canadian pride I guess). The last touch I have to do is add a Canadian Flag somewhere, its also the first time Ive tried a wash, I like how it turned out.

pics (my first time shooting my customs outside, was kinda fun yet dorky, good thing no one saw me):

Sweet that is spot & kitted out for cold weather ops. Yea the Maple leaf is certainly needed on his arm to finish it off. Is he getting some Canuk support (custom canadian soldiers)? Oh give him the 1/18th diecast polaris skidoo to round him off ;) Just need raise the handle bars a little for it to work with 25th figures.

Great figure and I have checked out the news letter and it had some good stuff in there!

Thanks for the comments. The recipe I used was:

Head: CP firefly, using his goggles and sculpted toque (for those of you who dont know what a toque is, its basically a cotton or wool cap, I think some americans call them skullys).
Body, arms, upper legs: Snow Job
Lower legs, hood: Arctic SE.

Just a bump on this to help promote the Canadian Joe Convention which is super fast approaching, hope you guys can make it! If you liked this figure learn more about where it came from from JoeCanuck.com - A Canadian based message board. The birthplace of the Canadian G.I. Joe Convention (http://www.joecanuck.com)
