#993 - Ripcord
I never had Ripcord when I was a kid. However, one of my best friends did. We played GI Joes together often and we had different Joes, so we got to see different figures. I played with his Joes so often, that in a way, it’s almost like all those characters were part of my collection.
I had previously made a Ripcord custom for a buddy of mine, so I started with that recipe. He wanted a more modern take whereas I’m going for a more vintage look. In this case, it was a simple matter of using the Attack on Cobra Island Altitude parachute gear to complete the look.
