#1035 Python Patrol Officer and #1036 Python Patrol Crimson Guard

#1035 - Python Patrol Officer

Recently, I have been phasing out all my 25th anniversary custom figures and upgrading them to 50th standards of articulation and sculpting. Looking at my Python Patrol shelf, all the figures need an upgrade. I had been using the 25th Python Officer as a trooper and had accumulated a squad of about 12. I decided to eliminate these and make a proper custom Officer to replace them.

This was a simple custom to make. I started with a Dollar General Cobra Officer since that figure is already black. I simply swapped the webgear for the 25th figure and painted the helmet, mask and knees.

All: DG Cobra Officer (black uniform)
Webgear: 25th Python Patrol

#1036 - Python Patrol Crimson Guard

The 25th Crimson Guard mold was fine (but not perfect) when it was released, but is dated now. Recently, I worked to make a better version of the original Crimson Guard. After that, I thought I could improve on the Python Patrol version. I started by swapping the head for the newer sculpt. After that, changing the upper legs gave them some more bulk and got them closer to the original’s look as well. All that was left was to add some paint.

Head: 50th Crimson Shadow Guard
Torso, arms, lower legs, back pack, Rifle: 25th Python Crimson Guard
Upper Legs: 25th Cobra Commander
