    Found this really cool looking GI Joe scale dune buggy the other day and with the way it looked Beachcomber immediately popped into my head. Being a fan of Transformer and GI Joe this was a no brainer for me as it gave me a chance to work on both and make something that goes along with the SDCC exclusive crossover figures.

    Beachcomber can be altered to fit two joes with an optional seat and gun turret.

    Along with beach comber I tweeked a Hit andRun figure I had giving him new weapons and gear along with added blue camo patches to make him match beachcomber.

    As always thanks for looking,
    Shinobi

    The roll cage is kinda tall, but doesn't take away from how awesome this is at all!

    (My best Roadblock impression.)

    That's great, buy you need to pop some flowers coming out of the vehicle/action figure guns, and maybe repaint one of the bearded biker guys (they were Cobra) as a hippie...
