    Been wanting to do this for quite some time.

    I bought a Commando Snake Eyes which screamed Beach Head to me. But the head had to go. So TENIME_art helped me out with a Cobra Firefly and I'm swapping the head out and painting it green. I'm also thinking about doing his harness in black. Not sure yet though.

    WIP pics!

    Update!

    Done!

    Painted the feet and parts of the harness black. The green on the head is a shade off, I'd say. But I'm happy with it.

    This was one easy conversion too. :D

    Your stuff has me dangerously close to picking up some S6 figures. GI Joe ARAH was my other obsession as a kid (TF's just barely edged 'em out,) and seeing you make the current line into some of my fave figures is making me wish I was a multi-millionaire. Great stuff!

    In all honesty, I loved the 8" line before starting the customizing thing. Once I started customizing though, I became more obsessed with the line.

    There's so much stuff in the line that can be customized. Limbs/heads could be easily swapped, characters that are just a customization here or there to become another completely different character and so on.

    I've never had so much fun customizing stuff. It's so easy to do as well. Since TFs are lagging right now and the 8" line is ending, it was a perfect time to start customizing because you know that the stuff you make has a slim chance of actually being officially produced.

    I have Airtight, Blowtorch, Undertow, and Dusty lined up to be made.

    You keep winning at the GI Joe kitbashing man, keep it up. I also agree with Sculpt-bot, that you're making want to get GI Joe figures. I don't have the kind of money or the room to support another obsession :lol
