Well, as I said in another thread, I got a pretty good size lot of 25th Joes, for really cheap. I kind of figured I'd do something like this when I was bidding, and I'm not exactly done... plus, there's a pair custom in here I did before getting the lot, too. I don't do anything super fancy, except in one. Just mainly head swaps to make interesting combinations.
Here is the two customs I did before getting the lot, and an accessory custom. Baroness is the Sub5 Annika head, with the hair taken off, painted face and the glasses glued on. I sacrificed head mobility to make it so it stays on well, and honestly she doesn't look that bad. I also took off the Cobra symbol, so she can be a good guy, and not be the Baroness, if I want.
The 2nd one is just a Duke head on Hawk from the GI Joe 25th TRU 3-pack. I already had a decent Hawk from the comic pack, and I wanted Duke to have decent arms, so, I swapped heads.
The 3rd one is kind of hard to see here, so...
(link b/c I am limited to 4 images)
I cut the long sheath from one of the extra ninja sword sheaths I received, after reading about it from someone, somewhere. I am sorry, I can't remember who. It worked out really well, IMO.
Is some fairly amusing stuff. They're all head swaps, and the Cobra Commandstro is by far the most amusing, IMO. Just a black Cobra Commander head, plus the regular Destro body. The 2nd is Snake Commander, or Commander Eyes... maybe Cobra Eyes? Not sure, but good for a chuckle. 3rd is the body of the Storm Shadow from the Cobra Legions set, and the head from the 2nd Comic Pack Storm Shadow. Just mixing up the extra Storm Shadows I have.
More of the same, mixing up Storm Shadow heads and bodies.
And the 1st one is Storm Shadow #4. I kept one of the three Cobra Legions Storm Shadows normal, just because its a neat design. He's not pictured though. And then, Commando Destro. He's actually pretty neat, aside from the Arashikage clan tattoo on his arm. I'll have to mix up some flesh and paint over it.
And there you have it. Pretty simple stuff honestly. I might do some boiling and popping of parts and switch around Storm Shadow pieces more, and perhaps make a black, red and blue Cobra Commander. We'll see!
