Kre-o Adventure Team Vehicles

January 8, 2018

Anyone familiar with the Adventure Team knows that there were some great vehicles. The various Kre-o lines gave me a few to work with and the recent Lego City Jungle sets are a gold mine for AT vehicles.

Big Trapper

This is definitely Big Trapper in name only, but provides a similar feel as the original. It is from the Cityville Skyscraper set.

Mobile Support Unit

Several of the Lego City Jungle sets would make for great AT sets (I’m looking at you “Jungle Exploration Site 60161”), but the Jungle Lab fit my size restrictions and budget. Vehicle can easily hold five minifigs.


Kre-o’s Battle Net Bumblebee was the first AT vehicle for my team. I replaced the Transformers logo with an AT one and I was good to go.


Kre-o Adventure Team

January 3, 2018

The Kre-o line gave us a great start to the Adventure Team, but it also meant that I wanted to complete the team. So here they are.

Adventure Team Commander

One of the easiest of the bunch. I used watercolor paint to dye his flocked hair. Entire figure is AT Commander and head is Cityville.


I went back and forth about just using a Doc torso, but ultimately used a custom sticker. Figure is Doc and head is Iceberg.

Man of Action

Another simple one. Removed the pockets from AT Commander. Not certain about whose head this is.

Sea Adventurer

Like the Adventurer, I could’ve used an existing torso (Cutter) but went the custom route. Also gave him an alternate outfit. Sailor version’s head and hair are Outback, torso Iceberg, arms Ozone, Legs Battleship. Diver is Air Adventurer with Wet Suit’s gear.

Air Adventurer

This one is not as much of a custom as it is an addition. Gave him Chuckles blonde hair along with a life vest and helmet, a la Fantastic Freefall.

Space Adventurer

The often forgotten Space Adventurer (as I like to call him). He was part of the Adventures of G.I. Joe line, but wasn’t carried over into the Adventure Team. Alternate outfit has him prepared for a Hidden Missile Discovery mission.¬†Astronaut version’s head and hair are Chuckles, rest is Snow Job. Space Suit is made from Dungeon’s & Dragons.

Kre-o Class of 1985

December 30, 2017

It’s hard to believe that it has been over 2 years since I posted the Class of 1984¬†, but the Class of 1985 is finally here! I do have plans for 1986, but don’t hold your breath for 1987.

Airtight: Hostile Environment

For Airtight, I went for a mix of his v1 and v2 looks. Arms and legs are Blowtorch, waist and torso from a Transformer, and head is Battleship.

Barbecue: Firefighter

Some of you may have seen my Barbeque recipe a few years ago when I was asking for suggestions for headgear. Head is Transformers Windcharger, torso, arms, and waist are Alley Viper, and legs are Transformers.

Crankcase: AWE Striker Driver

I had originally planned on using the torso from Dungeons & Dragons Fighter, but opted to make a custom sticker to go along with the custom boots. Head is Footloose, torso and arms are Rock N Roll, waist and legs are Doc.

Frostbite: Snow Cat Driver

Probably the easiest of the bunch. I’ve seen others use Snow Job or Iceberg, but I like the clean, all-white look. Head is Clutch, torso, arms, waist and legs are Snow Job.

Heavy Metal: Mauler Driver

I’d seen others paint Wild Bills torso for Heavy Metal, but went the custom route here as well. Head is Leatherneck, torso and arms are Battleship, waist and legs are Flash.

Keel Haul: Admiral

I had toyed with the idea of adding a hair piece to him like I did my General Flagg, but it just didn’t look right. Instead, I painted his hair like Kre-o Dial-tone. Head is Bazooka, hat is Lego, torso and arms are Star Trek Nero, and waist and legs are Doc.

Shipwreck: Sailor

Shipwreck was is dire needs of Lego parts to get finished. I had planned on painting the parrot like Polly, but for the sake of getting 1985 finished, Shipwreck got a new bird. Head is Zartan disguise, torso and arms are Cutter, waist and legs are ripper.

Tollbooth: Bridgelayer Driver

Tollbooth was the one that had been holding this project up. Stickers gave me some trouble and I wanted to go a different route for the hammer, but decided to stick with this one. Boots and torso are custom stickers. Head and hat are Cityville, torso and arms are Tunnel Rat, waist and legs are Roadblock.


Kre-o SNAKE Armor

December 26, 2015

A few more that have been finished for a while. Helmet, armor, an accessory kits that would fit on a Cobra Trooper and Stinger Driver. 


Kre-o FLAK and HAL

December 25, 2015

I have had these finished for a long time. Planned on showing these when I finished my kre-o MOBAT, which may never be finished. So, figured best to show them off now. 


Kre-o Class of 1984

March 6, 2015

I originally hadn’t planned on making any customs past 1982, but some of these came together way too easy. Deep Six, however was the missing piece of the puzzle.

Deep Six: Diver

Chad and I brainstormed this guy for a while, first trying to use a Battleship Alien with no success. Really wanted him to have a larger appearance, so I added foot weights, wrist gauntlets, shoulder pads, and front/back armor. I added his pump for good measure. Base is Firefly with camo removed, Zartan shoulder pads, Ace helmet, and Flash head.

Ripcord: Paratrooper

I’m not a huge fan of the original figure, but love him in the comics. This one was straight forward, but didn’t feel complete until the addition of the pouch sticker from the Wolverine. Torso is Battleship, arms and legs are Land Adventurer, and Flash head.

Spirit: Tracker

Spirit uses more Lego than I’d prefer, but very needed. Head is Tunnel Rat, torso is Cutter, and legs are from Doc. Hair, loin cloth, and eagle are Lego.

Thunder: Artillery

Thunder was the easiest of the bunch. Ace head, Star Trek Nero torso and arms, with Tunnel Rat legs.


Kre-o Class of 1983

March 4, 2015

As with 1982, Hasbro gave us many characters from 1983. In fact, the only G.I. Joe character Hasbro did not make was Cover Girl.

Cover Girl: Armor

Cover Girl was made from Star Trek Nero, Lady Jaye’s head, Doc’s legs, and Lego hair. Although I’ve digitally designed a lot of custom torso stickers, this is the only one that was necessary to print for my 1982-1984 project.
