LBC Urban Assault Duke and VAMP

LBCs, or Lazy bastard customs, can sometimes be as fun to make as customs that require paint on every square inch and can be at least as challenging too.

When the 50th Anniversary line was released, I was happy to get another shot at the classic 25th anniversary VAMP tooling. The urban color pattern is an interesting look and I bought an extra set to remove the doors and roof and swap out the missile rack for the pom pom gun. Since I had to paint the gun support black, the VAMP is not a true LBC, but it is pretty close.

Duke came about when I was looking for away to re-purpose my spare Flint. It is a super simple head and gear swap, but it adds to my growing Joe urban assault squad. I still need to repaint the flesh on his forearms.

Enjoy!

  1. Why do you do this to me? I swear to myself that I'm done with the 50th stuff. I'm not buying any more. And then you do this - make the stuff look cool and create a very easy awesome custom. Dang it.

  2. Have you considered giving him the gray Dollar General Duke's helmet?

  3. That's a great idea, thanks! I'll definitely give it a try.

    1. By the way, is that backpack from the 25th Duke that came in the pack with Snake Eyes, Cobra Commander, and Storm Shadow?

    2. I believe so. It is an all-black version of the TF Duke backpack.
