I recently built an Outpost Defender in the style of the Pursuit of Cobra line, and wanted to share the finished work.
The main structure is built with styrene plastic/bondene and the sandbags were painstakingly cut, filled, and sewn individually with materials that were on hand.
Following Hasbro's designers, I was inspired by classic movies in the overall design of the outpost. I liked the modular look of Whiskey Outpost from Starship Troopers and the heavy duty feel of the raptor crates from Jurassic Park. From there, I blended certain design elements while maintaining the overall silhouette of the original Outpost Defender.
Thanks for looking!

That is very nice. I would buy that all day if I saw an Outpost Defender playset that looked like that. This has a very modern look to it. Great job.
