This is basically a Steel Brigade figure with a Cobra Trooper head and helmet.

AKSU- Falcone @ Legion 14 Productions
Bayonet and Sheath- My design and print
predator64:
oh fudge
Agent11b:
How in the world did you do the Digi Cam pattern? It looks great!
revsears:
aside from the head and helm it looks more Joe to me than Cobra, but either away amazing work. That paint scheme is very detailed, beyond what i ever expect to see at retail.
shishi:
Awesome! Very clever effect for the camo.
captblitzdawg:
Just wow! Incredible paint apps!
jasonpaul:
Maybe soviet or chinese desert camo been more Cobra. Regardless wow on paint super impressive. Like the sling wish I could see more of that.

Because heaven forbid Cobra remove its head from its fourth point of contact and dress to suit the theater of operations.


Just say "No" to Cobra blue.
Beckley:
Beautiful
jasonpaul:
I dunno how he did it. My best guess rubber stamp (flexo plate material) cut to rectangle fastened to old paint brush handle. Carefully ink and stamp away? Sounds good on paper haven't tried it yet.
danielgogeta:
those camo marks and texture details are amazing

Now tell Hasbro to make this figure instead of the Retaliation Ninja Commando...................
green_shirt:
So is that some kind of thin fabric or a print out decal that you glued over the whole figure?

I agree.

Guppy, this is an awesome piece dude...
IIIzoeIII:
prettymuch dig it
mswi:
this guy looks great, camo turned out fantastic. Is that one of your 3d sculpt knives?
KrymsynGardImmoral:
I'll say it again. Groundbreaking.
Adamantite:
Amazing work. Write a tutorial, put it in an envelope and send it to Hasbro.
CG23:
This is great! Nice work!
1FormidableJoe:
Dope!
80sKid:
Truly a piece of art. Awesome work as always.
shishi:
No front page for this? This is truly an original concept and execution of technique that deserves to be highlighted.
sgcaper:
Looks great. Thinking it's water slide decals.
NAJA EMPIRE:
Just beautiful!!! Wow
GI Guppy the third:
Thanks for the comments. Here's a tutorial on the process

Zartanman:
Amazing, this and your tutorial should be on the FP. Splendid work!
DESTRO:
Nice Job.
snakeeyes1998:
Wow! That's just awesome!
1FormidableJoe:
If these were at retail; I would hunt these down to the tune of twenty (..figures)! You should put the red Cobra emblem somewhere on his uniform or helmet! This is a splendid custom! Hasbro take notes!
Primo_Baddest:
ooh thats really good!
DARKWIND:
Impressive!!!
FlintWO2:
That is amazing, I love it. If Hasbro made a Desert Trooper like that I would buy a dozen of them. Great work man.
dpstro:
Great work! Give him some goggles and he's ready for distribution.
lance858a:
I knew it was only a matter of time until you figured it out.
Shin Densetsu:
Excellent
Falcone:
As others have stated he needs goggles for the desert theater and needs a red Cobra sigil on him somewhere.

I'm working on some sigils, but they won't be red. As for goggles. That's the one thing my massively out of control fodder....room, is missing. The only goggles I have that fit on that helmet are the purplish shock trooper ones.
Cobra_Seph:
outstanding work man. the detail is amazing. this is a 10+ on top of another 10. if only hasbro could do such work. but on the other hand is good to see cool dedicated folks putting them to shame with work like this.

kudos bro.. this is top work
Agent11b:
God bless you good sir...I feel like little Tim!
1FormidableJoe:
Damn I want a squad of these! You can get the goggles from the 1/18 Elite Force figures off of Ebay & Amazon! These goggles are fully compatible with Gi Joe figures! A pair of goggles and a red Cobra logo on his helmet or arm sleeve is the only thing this figure is missing! Great custom!

Here are some links to help you out (..especially for goggles):

Noga87:
Perfect man, at first glance I thought it was a Sideshow custom.
A.V.A.C.:
Cool technique Guppy, that came out really nice.
07GT500 COBRA:
I'd buy a whole legion of those!
Crimson Gord:
the detail is next level ! it would be easy to imagine this was a larger scale if i didn't know better.
Superjoe74:
Fantastic camo result.

My only questions are, why haven't you started taking orders for these laser prints and why not offer other camo designs and colors as well?
CAV SCOUT:
Damn fine job! This is what I have been wanting to do but you
beat me to it. This is how I want my cobras real world.
Maybe a black cobra patch on the shoulder would be best to blend in.
