Custom Cobra Big Boa

Your fellow HISS tanker mswi made this custom Cobra Big Boa.

"I wanted a bigger, thicker Big Boa then my last one and I'm completely not a fan of the weirdly proportioned (almost feminine like) Night Adder sculpt, so I made another. Generally don't like mixing MU and Joe parts either, but I needed that large bare chested torso and I think it worked out okay."

let me be the first to say that is awesome
sbartek1974:
I love it. Big Boa was my one of my favorite as a kid. In my opinion, I think your Big Boa can kick the Club's Big Boa's ass!
cobratrooperlui:
Too cool!
spot138:
Awesome - What did you use for his webgear?

Great job again man
galactron22:
One of my favorite characters executed to perfection. just awesome!
Superjoe74:
I bought the original figure as a kid only because I wanted to expand my collection- not because I liked the figure. I actually thought he was one of the 'dumber' ideas for a character then.

In recent years though, the character has grown on me and I am looking forward to getting the FSS Boa. Now, after seeing this excellent custom and seeing how well the figure can look I am ready to trade up my FSS Boa for a better version- your version. LOL

Awesome figure. Great job!
Danney:

Great job love it. How did you get those straps done. That seems to be one of the biggest challenges to good ole' Big Boa.
