    Hey guys! This post has been a long time coming! I have been lurking for awhile and decide to try my hand at customizing a Joe figure. I selected the Wraith because he looks very techy, really cool. Enjoy!

    The Mercenary Wraith used only the Wraith and no other parts.

    I modded the night vision goggles to light up using 2 white SMD LEDs and some fiber optic line. The switch for the goggles is located on the right leg hidden in the pocket. The face mask can still raise and lower. The batteries are located in the lower torso and they are replaceable!

    Also modded the backpack to have lights and sounds too! Two red SMD LEDs are in the gun barrels, with a micro speaker in the backpack along with the button and the batteries, which are also replaceable.

    The backpack can be used with any Joe (or 3 3/4 figure) that has a peg hole in the back. Simply pop off his hands and slide off the forearm armor and put on any figure you wish!

    Painted with Testors Model Masters Acryls, given a more realistic, but still 'toonish color scheme.

    I will be uploading and attaching a video demo of the figure and his sound/light features! Enjoy!
