Valor vs Venom Recondo and Double Clutch

The last couple of weeks have been really busy. With the arrival of Fall, there is a bunch of stuff to do around the house, so I have not had time to continue posting my finished customs. These two have been done for a few weeks.

Recondo originally started out as a part of PHX Customs Resurgence 3. I was looking for a jungle specialist to include in the project and thought that this version of Recondo could fit the bill. Through parts swaps and changes in the project, the figure morphed into a whole new character and became Underbrush. However, I still had a partial Recondo WIP on my desk, so I decided to put it back on my slate. I kept the original legs, but almost everything else about the figure was changed.

Head: PoC Recondo
Torso, upper arms: 50th Hit & Run
Lower arms: PoC Hawk
Legs: Resolute Snake Eyes












Double Clutch (from the Valor vs Venom line) was originally a repaint of Spytroops Recondo. Both were included as vehicles drivers of different versions of the Desert Coyote, so once I found a good recipe for VvV Recondo, I adapted it for Double Clutch. Since this custom, as well as the original figure it is based on do not fit the way I imagine Clutch, I decided to rename him Pit Bull. This comes from the prototype name for the Desert Coyote in 2003.

Head: RoC Zartan
Torso, upper arms: 50th Hit & Run
Lower arms: PoC Hawk
Legs: Resolute Snake Eyes










Enjoy!
