GI Joe Resurgence! Day 27 - Beachhead vs Firefly




Beachhead vs Firefly – Mail Away Exclusives - Send in 10 Flag Points + 5.99$ S&H

Beachhead (Urban Ops)
Beachhead has been dispatched to a Cobra warehouse that contains information on the whereabouts of Duke. Will Beachhead be successful in retrieving the intel? Collect and redeem your Flag points and help rescue Duke!











From the desk of Oreobuilder:
Like The HISS II, Beachhead is a remnant of Project 96. Originally, he was meant to be a repaint of the Battle Corps version I made last year: http://oreobuildersblog.blogspot.ca/2013/07/battle-corps-month-day-23-wild-bill-and.html

When we changed to GI Joe Resurgence, a Battle Corps version didn’t really work anymore, so I updated the recipe to something more ‘’Beachheady’’, but I kept the original Urban Ops color scheme.



Firefly
Firefly is setting a trap for Beachhead at a secret Cobra Warehouse. Will he succeed? Collect and redeem your Flag points and help rescue Duke!












From the desk of Bucky:
Mail away Firefly is one of the figures that was slated to be a mail away for "project: 96".  The version was to be the battle corps version that has gotten little to no attention in the line since the first release.  The figures build was a bit of a tough one, as a lot of the parts used in the original never made it over to a modern era version, so I had to improvise with the webgear, leg grenades, head and helmet.
