    Having recently picked up an I-Gear Manatee from Ebay and being really happy with him, I couldn't resist the urge to try and give him some more W.H.A.L.E esque qualities. An order with cobrastickers.com later and I have my Action Force Manatee!

    I must confess I originally just intend to give him a marine badge on his shoulder to army him up a bit, but the more I looked at him the more he cried out for some more. I did question if I had went a bit too far at one point but then I remembered "Oh right... G.I.Joe..."

    Naturally since the stickers aren't made for some some judicious cutting and some hand waving were required to get some of them to work.

    I toyed with the idea of putting the autobot/joe crossover sticker on his forearm to make it look more like a Tat but opted for the shoulder look instead.

    I know some of the stickers aren't amazing but in my mind that only enhances the GI Joe feel. The Only thing I feel he's missing is an actual WHALE sticker, but unfortunately it's way too big for him and no amount of cutting will change that. I'm happy with him all the same! I had fun stickering him at least.

    Now If I can just get my hands on that Rattlor colour scheme version of the Powerglide....

    Edit: Added some stickers in the back and inside the legs. Yes that's a no smoking sign.

    Cool deco! Shame you associated it with "Action Force" though, rather than GIJoe.
