This is a total LBC but it works. I wanted to make tribute to the original Ripcord.

Ripcord body and Indian Jones charter head.

I never did come up with a name for this one. He's a Cobra Stealth Guy. Maybe I'll just call him C.S.G. for now.

When I had a couple of Sky Sweeper jets chromed a while back I had a surplus of Air Raid figures. The head came from a grab bag of random heads from Slayer Design Studios my wife bought me for Christmas last year.

My first thought when I saw this was that he was a modern version of Night Vulture.  Looks awesome.

Huh. I never thought of that. OK then. He's Night Vulture 2.0 then.

I should put more of my stuff up here and let you guys name it.  ;)

For the past 8 months or so I've been building a small team that works under Captain Ruin called "The Choir" (Thanks Ryan  ;) )

Most of these are rit dye bodies, touch up paint and Slayer Design Studios heads. Two of the heads were once again from the random grab bag of heads you could get from SDS.

Here's the team shot:



The Knights of the set:



The female is Lasciel. Her name omes from "The Dresden Files", my favorite series of books. Her head and body are from SDS, arms and legs from ROC Scarlet and Baroness skirt and CC comic cape.

The male for now is Templar, but that might change. Head and body from SDS, the rest is Elite Viper and Odin's cape (Thor). There is suppose to be a loin cloth on his groin but I didn't care for the still plastic one that came with the kit, so I'm looking for a small blue cloth I can someday attach.

The stealth of the team is this unnamed dude:



This is one of the grab bag heads on a ROC Storm Shadow body. Originally the body was white, but that looked too much like Storm Shadow, so I tried to dye it yellow. Yellow dye looks awful, so I had to go black. The black actually worked and I'm pleased with the results.

For now his name is Yakuza but I'm not really sold on that.

Another random SDS head brought about the next figure. He's got the whole dark cowboy look going. SDS grab bag head, Winter Storm Shadow body, Tomax forearms and hands. He needs a name:



Last dude. I really wanted to see what this head looked like, so I bought one. Didn't know what to do with it for a while but I was looking at my pile of Neo Viper bodies and realized the vest is bulky enough to work with the head. Then I needed a bulky body so I pulled apart one of my older customs for a Frostback Trooper V2 and put this guy together. It works. he looks big and chunky. I call him Grind.



So 2 of these guys need name suggestions.

They already have "Fast Draw" for the Joes. Phantasm doesn't feel right for the other.

Thanks for the suggestions none the less.

Wraith and Wild-Draw?

Spectre and Rough-rider?

Ghost and Cowboy?

Night Shadow and Vaquero? (Mexican equivalent to Cowboy)

Blade Storm and The Dude.

Don't get me started on how over used the name "shadow" is in the G.I.Joe universe. ;)

I sort of like "The Dude" for the gunslinger. Reminds me of The Big Lebowski.

The hyperactive ninja fellow still needs a good name.  Usually I like the names to mean something I can relate to.

Keep the suggestions coming!

Yeah, but "Viper" became the default grunt rank in the Cobra hierarchy.  "Shadow" as a unique character name or troop builder has been over used:

Shadow Strike
Shadow Tracker
Shadow Viper

plus Storm Shadow.

Enough of that. Here's another custom I made. I updated Timbit. Basically it's a repainted Wolverine figure but hey, if a Mego Dukes of Hazard figure can be used for the original, why not use a Marvel Universe for the update, right?
