When I first saw Falcon, I was so dissapointed the color and DUKE ARMs. I purchased Falcon several weeks ago and I am impressed with the color from the comics book - not the figure. So here is the version that looks a bit closer to comic version.
Letherneck is one of my favorite as a kid. However, growing up now - I think so - I don't like the bring green concept so much, so I used Falcon body figure as a base, and Hawk (v1) head and Gung ho hat. It's not accurate to the 1986 version but at least it looks better than the one that Hasbro is about to release - This is just my personal opinion.

Well I like falcon as is, but your custom is closer to the original, so good work.
Leatherneck looks amazing!!! Too bad hasbro didn't do him like this, I think we'd all be happy if they had.

The only critique i would off is make them less shinny when you can. Other than that. I like :>

I saw Falcon, but passed on him because of his colors. Will get him when he is released single carded and hopefully his colors will be better. Good job on him.
Leatherneck looks good, though I agree with Deckard, if and when you get the chance, alter the glossy look on them.
I love Leatherneck and hope Hasbro re-does him in jungle camo.
Good job man!
