I still remember that Easter morning in 1987 when I got up and opened the Easter basket my parents gave me, and in it was Crazylegs. He would be one of my favs, so I decided to do a custom because Hasbro wouldn't do it for me.
First of all, major props to swafus, because I followed his recipe. I just made a few variations.
First off, I got the original parachute pack, because I always thought that was a cool part of the firgure. I painted it black, along with the gloves, because I didn't really like the tan color, plus I didn't have any tan paint, which is probably the real reason.
I painted the knee pads red to kind of give a finishing touch to the red padding, and since Roadblock's lower legs made it easy, I figured "Why not?"
I found a gun from Marauder's that resembled Crazy's original gun, and I gave him and extra clip.
Lastly, not only is this my first real custom (that's not merely a repaint) but it is also my first attempt at doing a custom stand. It won't be mistaken for factory, but it works for what I'm doing.
Anyway, I'm displaying him next to the original, as a tribute.

A very nice custom, and does Marauder's stuff work well with the new joes? They seem to in the pic.

Nice work! I like the black parachute--it doesn't stick out like the tan.

It looks very nice. What's the recipe?
It looks like Torpedo's head, Snake Eyes (or one of those guys who use that body), Viper's upper legs and Roadblock lower legs?
Convention Tiger Sting (with or without Bazooka)
FSS NF Falcon - just need head and gear but will take whole figure if needed
Steeler range finder piece (can be accessory pack)
