Project New Sculpt by Bucky and OB Day 13


OB:
''I never had DTC Mutt, but this version always seemed like a younger version of the character. The face never had the lines of a grizzled experienced soldier. Still, it is an interesting take on the character.''








 

OB:
''The DTC version of Salvo was a cool evolution of the character. It added some height to his build, gave us a cool removable helmet and introduced the Javelin portable missile launcher to the GI Joe universe. Unfortunately, the original figure also suffered from some proportion issues and was quite bow-legged.''










Bucky:
''I've always imagined Swamp Rat as an individual character and not a trooper, and the color scheme here is my favorite one he had back in that era.  I had the top half pieced together very early on, the legs came at a much later time, as most legs made the figure look too lanky with that long skinny torso and arms from the retaliation Zartan.  I finally chose the jungle viper legs.  While not 100% accurate, they gave the bottom half the look I was aiming for.''








Bucky:
‘’When this Snake Eyes was released, it was THE snake eyes that everybody wanted and needed.  It was an excellent figure, and is one of the few new sculpt era figures I still own.  This custom hopefully does that version some justice.  More or less a kitbash with some black paint, it reads the ninja/commando line rather well.’’
