Tier 1 Pursuit of Cobra: Duke action figure

The new G.I. Joe: Pursuit of Cobra line is what I thought that G.I. Joe would naturally evolve into by the time that I was an adult. Even despite all the Star Force (or whatever) Eco-Force, and Street Fighter BS that we were subjected to. The POC Duke was almost perfect when I first saw it, and when I gave it a hard look, my arrogance took over and I figured that I could step it up a bit (to Tier 1, of course...)

Compared to my usual custom jobs, this one took relatively little time, painting, and sculpting to finish.

Base Figure: POC Duke
Elbow pads, Mag Pouches, Comm unit, & Secondary holster: Bravo Team guy
Primary Weapon: ROC Pit Commando
Secondary Weapon: POC Firefly
Headset: Sgt. Airborne helmet
Shemagh: Arctic Storm Shadow

Sagat and Adon 3 3/4" figures

Today I've got 2 more Street Fighter customs... This is what I saw in my head as a kid when the Street fighter Joes came out... not quite what I got. I had to add a huge point of articulation to Sagat's torso because SOMEBODY thinks that a Venom figure doesn't need to move! LOL. and anyway...

Torso & Arms: Venom figure
Great sculpt, horrible articulation. Had to add a point of articulation to the torso in the middle.
Legs: XMO Sabretooth figure.
Articulated legs that fit the Venom scale
Head: XMO Sabretooth figure (and a LOTTTTTTTTTTT of sculpting)
Hands: Revoltech Guile
Feet: Toybiz Weapon X Figure
Trunks: Fodder

Body: XMO Weapon X figure
Head: MU Green Goblin
Hands: MU Namor
Trunks: Henry Jones figure

The wraps were made from cloth tape and painted
