I have a top ten list of guilty GI Joe favorites, and this guy is on that list. Sonic fighters had to be one of the most obnoxious gimmicks in GI Joe. I still shudder thinking of SF Stalker's, "Eat Lead Cobra!!" or SF Cobra Commander's, "I'll Get You!!!", but easily my favorite out of the line was the repainted Viper.
I knew Viper was going to get repainted, as SOON as he came out, so I decided to wait 'til after Joecon and SDCC to make this custom...just to be sure this color scheme wasn't being released anytime soon
This is a strait on repaint, I altered the color of the grenades (I'm sorry, even on the original gold grenades just seemed ridiculousI painted 'em black with gold accents, and gloves ( I may paint the gloves black, though). It's gold, BTW, the pic doesn't really do it justice. I replaced his rifle with one of those big a$$ 90's era rocket launchers as a nod to the crazy weapons they came with back then.
Here's the original: YOJOE.COM | Viper
Here's my Custom:

As garish and eye-jarring as those colors are, you did a great job painting.

I have to say that Viper was one of my favorite cobra troops as a kid. I didn't mind the colors; I just pretended they were Desert-camo versions of the regular Vipers.
Great custom. Hopefully Hasbro will release a Viper like this, at least part of a set somwhere down the line.

As much as I would loathe seeing Hasbro do these, I love you guys for making these 90's customs.
For this one, I would've gone with a more smooth, semi-gloss factory appearance, but it does look good - and as I said, I love seeing these.

I absolutely LOVE that. Of course, I'm a bit biased...loved that figure as a kid, and made him Cobra Commander's personal bodyguard.
You did a great job on this. I can think of no greater compliment than ripping it off and doing one too! ;P

that's an ugly ass figure...I love it! I'm all for the ugly Joe figures form the 90's. as soon as I can figure out a recipe for Mirage, you can bet your sweet ass he's getting made.
