This could very well be my best custom without using paint nor sculpting, just recombining original pieces. Combining parts to make a new Joe without paint nor sculpting is an art, and a difficult one :) . SOS is a rescue GI Joe operative, always ready to help whoever is in need, in hazardous and adverse situations.

For this custom I inspired in a anime cartoon, the Legend of Galactic Heroes. I casted the awful movie Cobra Commander head, as I sold the figure and thought the head could be interesting if used on another topic. Then it struck me the resemblance with the Rosenritters, a special force that boards enemy spaceships with axes, as explosive gas is previously injected to prevent laser weapons to be used. Anyway, I thought it would be cool to make him in Gi Joe form, moreover that the Overkill body suits very nicely the character.
It could serve the Joeverse as a mercenary spaceman, used by Cobra or other nefarious forces.

This is one of my favourite customs, Radical Red. A sort of rebel anarchist against all established rules, always ready to embark any adventure that might bring some much needed chaos.
This is a custom I based on some low resolution random image I found on the net. I tried to adapt it as best I could, and I have to say at least I got a different result. Not really thought much about it's backstory, I just liked the design and gave him an according name.

After many years of failures dealing with Ninjas, Cobra has found the solution; a special trainer, skilled in all martial arts forms, to make Cobra Troopers and Vipers able to withstand the attacks of Snake Eyes & co without being massacred on the spot (or at least, survive long enough to give alarm).

I posted before my new Steel Brigade trooper, and now I expand the range with the Steel Brigade officer and two more troopers! I took the inspiration of the rare "Gold Steel Brigade", figure which I will never have due to it's cost (and if I do, I will resell inmediately :P ).
Anyway, here it is. Gears body (I bought many in China), and casted modified head (with semi-clear visor).

I keep completing my blog with the customs I've made. This is Mistraider, I took the concept from a videogame character, which I know nothing about, but looked cool. Is curious the contrast between something so modern and bizarre with a classic vintage body. Although I made him before the Ypsilon Underground characters, I think it fits nicely with them.
