The Fighting 1/18th!
Join Date: Apr 2008

Finally OPENED some Joes.. and it made me remember one of the reason's I am usually a MOC collector. Some of the old accesories are really... dated... and... bland!
Single color (black?!) guns? Boring helmets! I wouldn't have it any other way when collecting MOC figures.. as they are "historically" accurate.
But now that I got some to PLAY with.. ehhhh.. I can see why customs and mods are all the rage
So yeah.. I haven't figure out how to take the figs all apart yet, and I need to get paints and.. stuff... but I had fun tonight bastardizing everything.
I couldn't believe how CRAPPY the build quality was on a lot of the early figures.. and scarlett seemed to terrible.. so I figured she could be in a western
... and I lost Cobra Commander (black)'s helmet.. and his nice black suit seemed somewhat like a wetsuit. Why does CC with a airtight mask need a respirator? Cause it looks cooler! And he's angry a cat hair got on his mask LOL.
And then I wanted to have a battle.. and MAN what a difference real guns and helmets make... they almost look like soldiers
Thanks for looking. Again, Just messing around trying to figure out the world of "figures free'd from their plastic prisons".
