I have finally come to terms with the fact that Hasbro has failed to deliver on an accurate Wet-Suit...don't get me wrong, I am grateful that we are getting what we are getting but then I remembered how badass this looked and thought it deserved another look.

The bar was set so high after this custom that Hasbro never stood a chance. I mean long sleeves and gloves...THIS is what wet-suit should look like. Kudos agian man, great work

The 7-pack Wet-Suit will be getting a make over when I get him.
I'm gonna try to make him look like this.

Yup. It's downright shameful when Hasbro utterly, horribly, and completely FAILS with one of their figures.
There's no excuse for what happened here. The parts already exist to make an accurate-as-hell Wet-Suit, and Hasbro for all intents and purposes gets lazy and gives us a full-on Torpedo re-paint?
Is there some twisted mandate at Hasbro that they can't mix and match upper and lower leg parts and upper and lower arm parts?
I'm sure there's a significant handful of figures where, if Hasbro had just used a couple different parts, it would have made a world of difference, making the figure so much more awesome (Grunt, Major Bludd, Wet-Suit, the upcoming wanna-be Motor Viper, just to name a few).
In any case, thanks for showing us what a real Wet-Suit figure should look like. Very impressive work!

Sir, I applaud you. This is SUPERIOR craftsmanship. I am starting on a custom 25th Wetsuit and was searching the web for ideas when I found this. May I ask, teach us to do the shoulder joint swap. Is it functional, or is it too delicate to be played with?
