Its just mainly a headswap but with the angry face (ie starduster/greenshirt/blonde hawk) it makes for a great unmasked Range Viper. I call him Grimshank. I also included a quick bio and a still shot of him unmasked and a shot of him unmasked IN ACTON. Enjoy....
Range Viper Corporal
File name- Zachary Connors
Primary Military Specialty-Long Range Assault
Secondary Military Specialty-Brutal Combat
Birth place; Indianapolis, Indiana
Range Vipers are notorious for their ability to withstand Long Operations in the worst hellholes around the world. doing so makes them some of the best troopers but can also lead to excessive brutality. Grimshank RELISHES the harsh climates and near impossible assignemts as they provide him with not only the aggression he needs to carry out Cobra Commanders assignments and carry them out with glee but also fuel his thirst for agression and brutality. Among Range Vipers GRIMSHANK is looked upon as kind of a Pyschopath as he tends to relish in overkill. Some would say this makes him unfit for combat...Cobra Commander says it make him PERFECT for getting the job done.
"We've seen what long term combat can do to a soldier. Some snap, others shrug it off. GRIMSHANK must have either snapped long ago or he was hard wired from birth for this. He's a natural killing machine, not stopping until the last body part has ceased twitching. Some may be afraid to work with him and rightfully so, although he's yet to kill one of his own team.....YET. He's never left a man behind so that may be why the others are willing to follow him into hell and stomach his feral savagery...they now that despite being carried out by a bloody mess they'll go home.....although they may have to wash some blood stains out of their uniforms"

Nice. I would expect a horrifying serial killer (although they're not serial killers, somehow, if they're in the military) to come from somewhere boring in the midwest.
Only gripe: Maybe you used the word "brutal" too much?

Great storyline. I wish more Cobra troopers would be individual as opposed to army builders. It is more reflective of the military. Lamprey #4 isn't just cannon fodder, he is a guy who had dreams and aspiration, a story of his own before he ended up with Cobra.
BTW, I have a bunch of Range Viper that I just swapped other heads in as well. I love that the ME figures allow that capability.

Serial Killers can even become COPS...just look at everyones favorite killer DEXTER (which is a killer show...no pun intended). And ya Fool after re-reading the bio Brutal was used a tad much. I went back and changed some of em so I don't think the dynamic of the characters savagery is left out but now its not so over emphasized. Thanks
