Ripped Straight From the… : Duke, Blizzard, and Captain Grid-iron

January 23, 2018

Here are my entries from’s Group Project, Ripped Straight from the…

I share a lot of nostalgia for the NES G.I. Joe game. Chad and I would frequently rent it from our local video store and eventually purchased it from there when they were clearancing old games.

I have seen other pixel based customs using G.I. Joe’s as well as NECA’s cool video game inspired collectables which we used for inspiration.

However, Chad and I went different directions. Chad started with a black base coat and painted the highlights (which is a superior method). I started mine like I normally would by painting all the base coat colors first and then “attempted” to add the shadows. I started with Captain Grid-iron and loathed the results. So much so that I started Grid-iron almost completely over.

Duke: Tiger Force First Sergeant Squad Leader

Blizzard: Arctic Assault Soldier

Capt. Grid-iron: Hand-to-Hand Combat Specialist
