    After seeing Bionic Commando's Old Snake figure, I knew I wanted to make one of my own! "Only Human" was one of my favorite G1 Episodes and I honestly couldn't believe that I hadn't thought of this custom before!

    My formula is a little bit different for the figure, but there are some definite similarities! Here's what I used to make Old Snake-Nightwind's Version:
    • ROC Destro-Upper Torso
    • ROC Storm Shadow-Lower Trench Coat
    • 25th Anniversary Comic Pack Ace-Upper Legs
    • 25th Anniversary Comic Pack IG Destro-Lower Legs
    • 25th Anniversary Comic Pack CC-Head
    • 25th Anniversary Comic Pack Wild Bill-Hat

    I checked with Bionic Commando before making this post and he was cool with it, so I hope you all enjoy my version!

    As always, comments and critique are welcome!

    Sweet work! And hats off for citing fellow artists, makes for good etiquette.

    I like the vibe of the 'ol snake here. He somehow looks like he's in motion even though he's stationary. :thumbs2:

    I want one :D  i never saw any GI Joe so am only familiar with the character through seeing only human and reading some of the G1 issues featuring them as well as those that featured G2 Megatron just before that start of the G2 comic.

    that looks fantastic.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! I really appreciate it! :) 

    Looks like I accidentally broke one of the rules, though:
    Mods, feel free to change the title if necessary.

    Thanks again, all! :)

    He needs a Mini-megatron P-38 U.N.C.L.E. hand gun just for fun.

    Wild Bill's hat! That perfect! Nicely done all around.
    Don't forget the fingerless gloves though. ;) 

    I'm starting to wonder if anyone's got the human Autobots from the episode in the works..?

    he looks cool!! but when i hear old snake and non tf i thought it was metal gear. you should change it and put it under as a tf toy due to that he is in the show.

    But the character he created (while Snake is a character in one episode of G1) is a "non-TF" otherwise.

    It's neat to see this custom again! Zombie thread FTW!

    I just bought a bunch of these Joes really cheap and have been thinking of making myself one . . . .
