    Got the idea when I saw a Joe Custom from a friend.
    Sub-Zero was always one of my favourite characters in the Mortal Kombat game.
    When I looked at my GI Joe collection I saw some similarities between Storm Shadow and SZ.

    So after some brainstorming and a sleepless night, I was sure that I have to do this!

    At first I took the lower legs of a Viper Commando figure. Then I thought about taking the shoulder-pads and cut them into smaller pads.

    The next step is painting. SZ will get his original colour-sheme (Black & Blue).
    His fingers are going to get some nice ice-blue details so that it looks like he´s casting an icy ball.

    Maybe someone´s got an idea how to create a frostbolt ^^
    I´ve got only one picture so far but be sure to see more in the next days ;)

    I just seen on BBTS there is a MK joe scale line coming out.

    You should track down a set of Clear wraith arms for the frosted arms one.Use a Stormshadow/Ninja top for his chest.Although you will have to crack the torso to do that and change the arms.

    Uh, didn´t know that. Maybe I´m getting some of these.

    Your ideas are awesome but I don´t want to spend more money then necessary. I´m trying to use only materials that I have. Also there are so many designs for Sub-Zero so I want to give him a new look.
    That is a nice challenge for me ^^

    Very nice, Sub-Zero is my fav character in Mortal Kombat. Hell I use the colors for inspiration of my tf fan created character, Ericon Maximus.

    Ebay:
    the ice ball could be easy made fron hotglue... make sure you have a led in there when you start.... I'll illuminate for sure.... If you could want I'll make one for free including the led and wires... all you need to do is tell me the size and after you get it... mount the damn thing ;)  maybe carve a small groove in the arm for the wires the fill the rest up with putty and voila (external juice or button cell in/on his back?)

    Thank you very much for all the ideas that you share with me.
    I´m trying hotglue tomorrow.

    @G60Force
    That´s very kind, dank je wel :) 
    But this is my first try on a Joe figure so I think this would be too difficult for me XD
    But it´s a nice oppinion for a future Transformers custom =)

    Got a new pic:
