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.

Kre-o Class of 1982

March 2, 2015

I have planned an Original 13 since the Kre-o line was announced. I attempted this during both the new sculpt and the 25th eras, but lost interest in both of those lines. Although Kre-o GI Joe has probably gone the way of the dinosaurs, I’m still heavily into this line.

Starting out Hasbro gave us Rock N Roll and Stalker, who were perfect bases for most of the original 13. Add ClutchScarlett, Snake-Eyes, and Flash and we are almost 50% there. Here are the rest, in alphabetical order.

Breaker: Communications

Breaker was made from Stalker with a Adventure Team head. Helmet and headset are from Brickforge.com

Grandslam: Artillery/JUMP Operator

Grandslam was made from Flash with a Brickforge helmet and a custom Lego JUMP.

Grunt: Infantry

Grunt was one of the easier, made almost entirely from Rock N Roll.

Hawk: Radar

I would have preferred Silver straps for Hawk, but still looking for the perfect decal solutions. For now, using Stalker as a base works for me.

Short-Fuze: Artillery and Zap: Bazooka Soldier

These two use Rock N Roll as a base. As with Hawk, I haven’t been happy with torso decals, so both of these get body armor.

Steeler: Armor

Steeler uses a Battleship torso with Stalker legs. His visor was purchased from www.eclipsebricks.com

General Flagg

General Flagg is the bonus figure here. Base is from a Battleship figure, head is Lifeline, hat from BrickForge, and modified Lego hair.

Kre-o WIPs 9/12/13

September 12, 2013

Here are a few WIP Kreons that I’ve been working on. From left to right, General Flagg, Hawk, Steeler, Grunt, Breaker, Flash, Zap, Short-Fuze, JUMP Jet Pack, Cobra Stinger, and bonus Cityville Snake Eyes. Hope to have some of these finished soon.

Kre-o SNAKE Armor with HISS Driver

June 6, 2013

Kre-o has offered a FANG, Trubble Bubble, and CLAW.  An ASP and HISS tank has been announced.  That left one glaring omission: the SNAKE Armor.  Once again, I design this in Lego Digital Designer and order the pieces from Toypro.com and shop.Lego.com.  The stickers were printed by J_Man, once again, from Joecustoms.com.   He also designed and printed the stickers for the custom HISS drivers.  I chose the HISS driver as the SNAKE pilots because they were packaged with the Cobra Escape Armour in for the Action Force line, as you can see here:

The HISS drivers were made using two Red Ninja figures and helmets (I sculpted on visors) from Warpath (Transformers).
