GI Joe Resurgence II Day 14: Chuckles and Destro

''Following the disastrous events of Operation Waterfront where several Joes were taken prisoner by Cobra, General Hawk has tasked Chuckles to put together a team to find and rescue his men. Meanwhile, a new group of GI Joe recruits are tasked with finding out what Cobra’s new plan is. Little do they know that both missions will lead them to Gold Springs, a nice little town in the desert…''

Chuckles - Mail Away figure

From the desk of Bucky:
Chuckles came about a couple different ways. I've had that build set aside for the longest time, but wasn't in a rush to ever finish it. I've seen it done by others, and it is a great adaptation for Chuckles. When kicking around ideas for the Gold Springs storyline, i thought it would be the perfect opportunity to finally do something with the build. I had no desire to paint his shirt up like the vintage version, but I thought it would be funny to do his vest up like that. It came out alot better than it had any right to, and got more than a few "chuckles".

Destro - Single carded figure

From the desk of Oreobuilder:
When we started throwing around ideas for Resurgence II, Destro and the Iron Grenadiers were going to play a bigger part than the way it ended up. Still, after making a battle armor version of Cobra Commander last year, I thought it would be fun to do a Destro in battle armor as well. Using the Thor base is a different look for the laird, but once in the proper colors and with Raptor’s excellent filecard to create a reason for its existence, I think it works.

Head: 50th Destro
Everything else: Marvel Thor
