Night Tomahawk w. Lift –Ticket by Oreobuilder
In my Joe-verse, Night Force is not a standing unit. I imagine, every Joe has his ‘’standard’’ uniform as well as a Night Force uniform for night operations. In the same vein, vehicles get special mission-specific paint jobs as needed.
When the Tomahawk was released, I knew I wanted a black one in my collection, although I am not the only person to make one (I'm, at best, the 43rd person to do so lol). I was fortunate to find a couple on clearance at Toys R Us, so I picked them up and set about painting it. For Lift-Ticket, I used a PoC LT as a base. This allowed me to make him using very little paint.
Night Star w. Blast Off by Oreobuilder
Another relic from ‘’Project 96’’, the Stellar Stiletto was a good candidate for a repaint in my opinion. Since I did not have the original missiles, I had to use some from the old vehicle weapons pack. Luckily, the Triple-T missiles fit perfectly.
When we were brainstorming potential members for the Night Force team, I used Bellomo’s guide as inspiration. Looking at the Mega Marines, I realized that, with a few tweaks, Blast Off’s colors worked well for Night Force. Also, (going by his name and not his ARAH specialties) he was also a pretty logical pilot for the Stiletto.
