Simple yet effective! All I need now is for G.I. Eddie to paint the visor and buckles GOLD.
The head came from SW comic pack #12, 'X-Wing Rogue Squadron'. His name is Baron Soontir Fel. He's from the Darkside so his background checked out just fine with Cobra.
The head joint to this SW figure was much larger than the 25th G.I. Joe so I cutoff the 'ball' keeping most of the neck from the original SW figure. The slack from the neck allowed me hollow out the larger 'ball' with ease using a clamp/pliers and a 3/16 drill bit (I recommend starting the drill hole with a smaller drill bit). Trim down the neck, leaving just the larger ball. Insert the larger hollowed-out ball into the SW head and adjust as needed. The head now works as if it was made for the smaller G.I. Joe head joint!
FYI: This SW figure comes with a waist holster that can be used with any G.I. Joe and modified to accommodate any pistol. I'm thinking a SOCOM for SE v.4!
For any loose SW collectors, I have a Derek "Hobbie" Klivian for sale...CHEAP!

That's cool, it fits really well with the Vipers body. Have you, or anyone else tried to hollow out a Vipers head, turning it into a removable helmet? Is that something worth trying or would it just ruin the head?

That looks fantastic. I'd like to get a Viper Officer myself, but I'd be satisfied with just getting someone to paint the gold.

AWSOME! I used that same head swop with one of my Crankcase figs. I wanted a differant looking driver for my second buggy driver. I just finished this one today check it.
It's my take on the Battle armor S.N.A.K.E. used the new War Monger from Iron Man toy line and a lil Dremyel. The undergarment wear is red micro fiber cloth. Look out Joes!.......COBRA!!!!!!!
Hope pics come out! first time posting, just joined the Tank today. I've been reading and tripn on some of the customs I've seen you guy's make since Jan 08. I've got tons of pics to share with all of you.
