That looks horrendous!
Wait, no, the opposite of that. I like how creative customizers can come up with quality repaints/reassemblies that work so well, yet Hasbro won't release them.
They have ALL the parts, and you make it look SO good. I'm sure it wasn't "easy" to do, but it's at least obviously possible, with little effort on their part, I'd imagine. I mean, they ARE the original manufacturer of these things, and simply by taking their parts and a few minutes to take stock of the situation... you've realized how parts can be repurposed properly, and with a little paint, you can make an almost BRAND NEW figure!
Side-by-side, the Torpedo and Wetsuit don't even look at all alike... What wonders a little paint can do.
I have to compliment Hasbro on making these modular enough for customizers to do wonders with them... Whether it was intentional to cater to the customizers as I've heard, or whether to save budget on their end, or both... At least Hasbro has opened the door for this to be possible by customizers...
What I don't get, is why they don't do more of this themselves?

On the HissTank, I've seen six original colored Wet-Suits customized in the 25th style. All of them are awesome of course, but yours is the best because it's the most accurate. If Hasbro doesn't make one like yours, I'll be really disappointed.

When in doubt, CUSTOMIZE!

First off, I want to say that I really appreciate all your positive comments and compliments you have shown for this particular custom, I would have NEVER have thought it would generate such a stir in the Hisstank custom community. I am truly happy the way it turned out and glad that you all enjoy it as well. THANK YOU!
Second, I have received numerous PM about selling or making others for sale. Unfortunately I will be doing neither one. You see, I am not a professional customizer like some here on the HISS. I don't make customs on a regular basis, only when I am truly inspired (sorry if I sound artsie, if there even is such a word ;p ). But when I do, I pour my heart and soul in trying to get it just right. So much so that I become attached so much that I can't bear to let it go ( My wife thinks I am insane...she just might be right lol)
I will though be willing to answer any questions or give whatever advise I can in order for you to make your own, it wasn't really that hard. All you need is a passion for the hobby and it will all fall together.
YOE JOE/ COBRA!!!!

Custom directions would be great. Especially paint information. The colors are great.
