LATEST PROJECT - FIREFLY
Firefly was the first Cobra figure and the second GI Joe figure that I ever owned. He was always my favorites. v1 was the only one I ever wanted. Since the 25th anniversary, I have bought most of the Firefly figures that have been produced only to later sell them. I hung on to the v1 remake and the RoC version (TRU) as I thought them the best of the bunch but definitely flawed. I've been working on the parts combination for some time and got frustrated after a while. Lately though after seeing the Retaliation Ultimate Firefly to come out next year and I keep drooling over the Sideshow version, I had to finish the task. Thanks to a fellow Tanker's custom using the Eel head, I finally found one of the missing pieces. The rest came together last night.
- Head: RoC Eel v6
- Torso & Arms: PoC Commando Snake Eyes
- Legs: Steel Brigade Delta
- Backpack: 25th Firefly plus modded loops for flashlight
- Flashlight: REN Tunnel Rat
- Gun: POC Commando Snake Eyes
- Chest Rigging: Custom rig with pieces from 25th Firefly (used 1/8" elastic)
- Holster: Custom rig using 1/8" elastic, pistol from Marauder John, and holster from Retaliation GI Joe Trooper backpack.
- Goggles: Firefly
Now he's ready for paint.
