GI Joe Resurgence II Day 20: SWARM Locust

''Cobra Commander has hatched a new fiendish plan to take over the World! He has given Glitch a new mission: build Cobra a new army. Using new alloys developed by Dr Mindbender and Cobra’s Science Division, Glitch has created a suit of armor to control and command his ultimate army - the SWARM!''

SWARM Drone: Locust - Single carded figure

Filecard by Charles Cushman (Raptor)

From the desk of Bucky:
One of the first ideas that popped into my mind last summer when playing with the idea of doing a Resurgence 2 was that of an insect-based viper that attacked in droves. All I had was an idea for the helmet, and from there I had found some wings from a Marvel Universe figure. As time wore on and our story stared to take shape, the idea of a viper turned into an Android Trooper, and the surplus of all the blowtorch figures out there was something to build off of, and my plan was to build a small "army" of them through cast parts (helmet, vest, wings, weapons and add ons) and blowtorch figures.
Unfortunately, that didn't come to fruition for various reasons. As luck would have it, Oreobuilder had another set of wings, and I was able to score the helmet again from the store again and we were able to build the Locust figure, and the end result is the figure you see here!
