Well, a little late to post this, but it never hurts to see this again. A massive project with many players, GI Joe Resurgence is a “what-if” custom project that pushes GI Joe into the 21st century with new characters, but with the same spirit of the 1980s. Check it out over a Joecustoms.com GI Joe: Resurgence by Bucky OB, Dusty79, GITrekker and more!

Meanwhile, here was my contribution to the project.

Tiger Force and Super Cop Clutch 5/4/14

Back in November 2012, I posted the first two of a series of Clutch customs. After a year and half, I finally found the time for two more, Tiger Force and Super Cop. Super Cop, much like MRF Clutch, has an alternate head. I went with lighter hair and a mustache to harken back to the original Super Cop.

Next for the series will be a light blue version of Super Cop and Street Striker Clutch. I have an idea for another one, but I need a Stalker 83 waist to finish him up. If you can help please let me know.

Hard Master and Dreadnok Zartan 2/26/14

Up first is the Arashikage Hard Master. I’ve had this character in WIP form since I did Issue #27 for Joecustoms Comic Pack Group Project.

I had planned on customizing the Hard Master, Soft Master, and Apprentice Snake Eyes using mostly Slice and Storm Shadow 88 parts. Soon, the custom was relegated to the Island of Misfit WIPs (which is becoming quite crowded). Fast forward to last year, I found someone else’s custom that used this figure, however I cannot find the picture in order to give credit to the customizer.

Head: Prince Xizor (modified)
Arms: Red Ninja Viper 05
Chest: Red Ninja Viper 05
Waist: Red Ninja Viper 05
Thighs: Red Ninja Viper 05
Feet: Red Ninja Viper 05
Sword & Scabbard- Hard Master 08
Bow & Arrow- Hard Master 08
Blindfold- Hard Master 08

Next is Dreadnok Zartan. Zartan is awesome. His first figure is very iconic, but the Ninja Force version is not. However, version 2 has a biker feel that version 1 does not. A few part swaps and color changes later, and Zartan feels right at home with Buzzer, Ripper, and Torch.

Head: Zartan 93
Arms: Zartan 93
Chest: Headhunter 92
Waist: Headhunter 92
Thighs: Zartan 93
Feet: Zartan 93
Sword- Zartan 93
Bow- Zartan 93
Knives- Zartan 93

Lastly, a file card for the W.O.R.M.S. Commander, Crab, and a group shot of the crew.

Modern AT design

The AT is hot right now. I’m seeing AT stuff on a lot of the boards, and for good reason…it’s awesome. I’ve been toying with the idea of the modern AT and what they would look like. The original AT are so iconic, but are based on Action Soldier (Man of Action), Action Marine (Land Adventurer), Action Sailor (Sea Adventurer), Green Beret (Commander), etc. So as I was looking for ideas for a modern look, I had to think outside the box because the original designs are too dated at this point.

Conceptually, this is what I came up with on a whim today, based on a PMC look, adding yellow and red for color.
