ZOMBIE BUMP BECAUSE I REBUILT SOME OF THESE VEHICLES

CHECK 'EM OUT ON PAGE 5


Couldn't wait for the Kre-O line, so I tried my hand at some vehicles with my existing Lego collection:

Cobra CLAW:







And the FANG:







And the Ferret:







And a place to park them all at base:



And, not to be outdone, GI Joe's got a Sky Hawk to do battle with:



BAT Crazy:

TTT:

Beckley:
Too cool, I love them
MeLikeJinx:
Wow. These are really great. You need to start mass producing them. LOL.
Taterbot:
Very Cool! Love the CLAW and the base. Great Job!!
Troops of Doom:
Great job translating to Lego. I especially like how the Ferret turned out.
Dragasses:
winner.
citizendan1st:
you pretty much nailed them...id buy these in a heartbeat..even as my wallets pleads with me not to get into legos again...
Vulcan Raven:
Great job man! That's just neat.
DARKWIND:
Awesome tiny work!!!
Hobbes-timus Prime:
Thanks, guys!
evopete:
Bad ass Man!!!!
Deinonychus:
Very well done! There are too few GI Joe vehicles made out of blocks floating around on the Internet. Thank you for adding a couple more. That's the best CLAW and Ferret I've seen, and the FANG is among the best. The Skyhawk is very cool. The bright green seems a little off though, but that can't be helped I guess. I may try and replicate that using some of the great green cammo bricks from the Mega Bloks Halo sets.

It is a shame though, that there are too few pieces in dark blue to make a properer Rattler or many other Cobra vehicles for that matter. I've seen them done in regular blue and they have the same issue as the Skyhawk; structurally they look great, but the color makes them look just different enough from how we've trained our brains to think they're supposed to look.
Scroll142:
yes!

What you say about colors is true, but Lego seems to be offering more variety all the time. The sets based on the Avengers movie had some great darker blue vehicles and the upcoming Ninja Turtles line has some great olive green that will be useful in military builds.

All good things in time.

Thanks for the kudos!
CG23:
Great!
triant:
awesome!!
love them all!
denversaur:
These are fantastic. Your talent for recreating the 80s Joe aesthetic in Lego form is amazing. Seriously, these are great!!! This made my day.
polyphenus:
Do you have any step-by-step instructions on how you built them or a list of parts that were used?

Not at the moment, unfortunately...
regisaugusto:

malcontentman:
Seriously, you could sell these sets yourself. Do you think you could do a Lego Stun?
samantha:
Totally cool.
Redredly:
Epic Win
theprocess:
This is so great. Would be cool to see a 1/18th scale version.

Even more awesome than before. Bookmarking again.

edit: how about some more pics of the HISS, you already put the new Kre-o release to shame.

Does the Stun open up?

Really digging the Skyhawk. i am planning to crash mine when I get home and rebuild. Looks like Duke is going to have a bad day!!

Thanks!

I made the HISS it's own thread where there's some more pics. There's a couple more in my Flickr stream, too.

The Stun does open:
