    I'm itching to get those swords! I still have 2 Dollar General Ninja Force Storm Shadow I've been working on very casually

    You can swap the head and sash on Storm Shadow for the Renegades look(not completely accurate but a decent homage nonetheless).

    What sucked is that there actually was an accurate Renegades Storm Shadow prototype but Hasbro just decided release some of its parts with the Storm Shadow you bought.

    Marauders teased more ninja items a while back but have yet to release them. Itching to see them released!

    I wasn't a fan either and had to pull a custom job.

    Had to do some work on Destro, Cobra Commander v1, Zartan & Storm Shadow V1 as well.

    On a side note, it was kinda sad I had to dig through 2014 photos to find these. :(

    After seeing what Acid Rain has done with their B2Five line, I'd rather see articulated figures at that size over the six inch stuff. Might even get some MASK at that size.

    ... But it'd probably wind up another sigma six 2.5 line.

    Thanks! It started to bum me out when Sideshow started moving away from the traditional Joe and Cobra styles to entice some of the modern military collectors. The one remaining thing I still want to do is make a new gun for Major Bludd.

    I'll see if I can take better pics of what I did with Snake Eyes V1, Destro, SS v1 and Zartan.

    Possible Info On G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes Title Reveal Poster - HissTank.com

    YO JOE! BYE BYE RISE OF COBRA-VERSE! Hasbro has more creative control now since they have a higher financial stake so they're probably going to make this movie more ARAH just like Bumblebee was made more G1.
    You're welcome, yea man show us what you did! I bet your Snake Eyes V1 is way better than the stock one.

    I told myself I wasn't going to mess around with 3.75". But I had to buy MGR's "Shockwave" kit. He was one of my faves as a kiddo.

    Very sweet selection of Joe 12" figures. The only ones I would really want to add are Storm Shadow, Crimson Guards and Cobra Commander.
