Today's custom answers the question of what happens when a beloved Joe is 'forced' into early retirement because he is not as young as he once was. Well out of anger and pride he may just join the other side.
Ladies and gentleman...
Cobra Sgt Slaughter
1. Very original idea. Ok maybe not totally original as he was an Iraqi Sympathier in the WWF during Desert Storm, but teaming with Cobra is treason!!!!
2. Camo design is pretty good. Last time I did camo was ten years ago.
3. Original head choice.
4. Very happy with the bald spot and hair color.
5. Leg parts are original to the best of my knowledge and give it the knee cap articulation. I also really like the more sinister looking boots.
1. I had tried using Bobby Lashley lower arms originally. Once I decided it just would not work I had some warping by the elbow joints. It is more apparent on the left arm than right.
2. During sanding I knicked the forehead above the right eye pretty good. My friend suggested to make it look like a scar but I just left it be. Not sure how noticable it is to you but I know it is there.
3. Marauder's hat does not fit as snug as I would have liked it to.
4. Flash in pic makes it hard to see some detial.
5. Rock's eye brow on left eye. (Too pointy, thought it might look cool to you. Let me know.)
If I were more confidant in my painting skills I would have liked to dot he Cobra symbol on his chest in gray. I also would have taken one of my six Duke flags and made it Cobra.
As for the dio piece i think they are form marvel legends. I plan on painting the tank green to sympolize a joe tank.
Head: Ripper heavily modified
Upper legs: Serpentor
Lower legs: Torch
Gun: Power Team Elite
Tomorrow... WATCH OUT!!! This Joe is known for surprise attacks. Guess who....

You're right, he was Iraqi sympathizer Sgt. Slaughter with Col. Mustafa (Iron Sheik) and General Adnan. Traumatizing as a child.
