    Cobra Strategic Weaponized Early Engagement Plane (S.W.E.E.P.)
    The secret military organization known as Cobra discovers huge alien machines hidden all over the planet. Using this alien technology, Cobra is able to make advanced new vehicles and weapons, but was unable to control them, until they removed the alien robot's heads. Each vehicle's Pilot Master can control their vehicle from the cockpit and take command of robot mode by becoming the head. Despite this, Cobra Commander can feel resistance from this machine. Could there be something else trying to resume control?

    I had an idea to do this for a while, then finally got some time to work on it. It's painted with Testors model master acrylics. The Cobra Commander head

    Let me know what you think. Now all I want to do is make GI Joe crossovers with Titans Return vehicles.

    This is beyond amazing. Keep running with this. I want to see this set fleshed out...

    Where is the head from?

    Cobra Vipers as Titan Masters, brilliant. You could also make Triggerhappy as B.A.T.S. or Strato Vipers based of The Nightraven phantom jets. Then use Hardheads as Joe Grunts and Highbrows as paratroopers.

    Thanks all. Glad you like it.

    Head is from a Retaliation CC. I liked that it framed the faceplate. Just sliced it in half and epoxy'd to Scourge's Titan Master.

    Oh yeah. Got to find a couple Vipers.

    Yeah. I got a lot of plans, but I work pretty slow lately. Hoping someone else is inspired to make some. Destro is next. Or maybe Cover Girl and Wolverine. Or maybe Snow Cat. Slipstream & Conquest. Once you start thinking about it...there are so many to do.

    Yeah I thought about changing the vehicle, but I decided to keep that part as the "Transformer" part for this one, otherwise it's just a Cobra Commander character in a weird vehicle. But if I do more, the vehicles will be more "Joe"-centric while the bots are the Transformers.

    OMGS yes! I love this! *dances all around* Of course Cobra Commander would make it in his own image. :lol : He just needs his cane.

    Did you sculpt the head yourself? Its wonderfully detailed.

    Why isn't a TF- Joe crossover line a thing by now? This is great!
