    Here's my take on Shipwreck as he appeared in the GI Joe cartoon The Pyramid Of Darkness.

    Recipe:
    Base figure- Hasbro Marvel Secret Wars 2 Pack Mr. Fantastic
    Polly- repainted Comic Pack Shipwreck
    Base- Comic Pack Shipwreck
    Rifle- DVD Stalker
    Pistol- 25th Airborne

    Mods:
    Head- Removed hair details from forehead, sculpted new nair & beard with white stuff sculpting compound. Completely repainted.
    Torso- Repositioned neck and sculpted new chest, vest, collar and simplified the stomach and back with white stuff sculpting compound.
    Arms- Simplified muscle definition with white stuff sculpting compound.
    Minor mods- Dremeled and sanded down flashing from mold lines.

    Painting:
    Figure was base coated with Tamiya German Gray. Tamiya and Testors paints used for lighter gray parts of uniform. Boots, gloves and belt were painted black and sealed with Microscale Industries Micro Flat. Polly was repainted using acrylics. Cobra symbol is a water slide decal.

    All card art, logos, graphics & type created in photoshop, printed on high quality paper and mounted to card stock.

    Thanks for taking a look!
