Thanks, I like it.
Everyone does, because some asshat decided to release that thing looking like a prototype!
Very satisfying to see it the way it should be.
Part of me wants the visor to be silver, but it feels like that would be a waste of perfectly good clear plastic, and you sure can't paint things clear, so I dig it how it is.

Wow that made a world of difference. Nice Job! If you don't mind my asking, what is the color and brand of paint you used?
Have to trade:
-MIB Twin Cannon
-MIB Desert Ram
-POC Low Light
-POC Destro (v27)
-POC Shadow Tracker
-POC Snake Eyes (v54)
-25th Red Ninjas
-25th Ninja Vipers
I don't care if the figures are loose or even incomplete :-)

Maybe you can paint the shield silver? That way he'll be way more accurate!

Hey you stole my idea...LOL!
I was thinking of using those upper legs as well, only I was going to have holsters on each side. I was also planning on using the upper arms from the Armored Cobra Commander/Iron Grenaider mold or the ones from the Resolute Trooper unless someone has a better idea.
As far as the face shield goes I'm with everyone else who thinks it should be painted silver. I would also paint the hoses and belt on the webgear black. Then I would paint the nozzel connectors silver as well the belt buckle and that little "V" looking symbol at the top just like the original had.
Overall you did a great job to make it look more like the original even without all of the extra details I mentioned. By the way did you paint that or did you just use Shockwave's parts? It looks like you might have just removed the blue and yellow "camo" markings that Shockwave has.
If you made this custom without the need of paint then that's a job well done.
Customs with no paint needed are great.

We'll be seeing quite a few of these. While the light blue may be a tad dated, they could have at least given him 2 tones of color to break up the uniform a bit (sounded very Brüno, sorry about that).
The sculpt on the vest and helmet is nice, and I don't mind the updated helmet or visor being clear... I would have dug a classic helmet with a mirror finish, but this one's actually nice too. Something makes me think they could have done a better job on the torso or added a few paint apps so he wasn't so boring though.
I bought one of those terrible SUVs (they're actually cool I guess if you're into new Joe stuff... Just not my cup of tea) just for this figure, but I'm a little anxious about fixing him. I want at least 2, but if I fix one, it means I'll have to fix another. He's as much of a letdown as the Tele-Viper, and suffers from many of the same things. Nice head sculpt and vest, but severely lacking paint apps and rather drab overall.
Did you think about adding some more silver to the vest? Just a few highlights?
Overall, a good edit to a figure that needs it.
