    Classics style G.I. Joe Big Boa

    After many attempts to get this right, I was finally able to complete my custom of my favorite GI Joe character Big Boa! A special thanks to Kevin "Tin" Kosse for sculpting and painting the head for me.

    Should plug in them holes on the gloves with green stuff and touch Em up. And fill in that void on the harness as well.

    Give us some detail on how you went about creating this..

    Are those boxing gloves from a Rocky figure and did they fit on easy enough?

    The gloves have joints in them, that's why they aren't filled in. I did fill in the hole in the harness with some apoxy but it fell off during painting.

    The figure is made from an oolarr torso and Sir Laser lot legs. The loin piece is from Stong Arm, with a sculpted belt buckle using apoxy sculpt. The boots are also from Strong Arm. The harness was a major pain to make, it's Batros's harness with bat symbol removed and painted red. I used a spike bracelet I found at Michaels and cut the ends off the spikes and painted them silver. I hammered in some eyelets on the harness for the base of the spikes and glued them in. The gloves are from a Jakks Pacific Rocky figure. I used a Dremel tool to hollow them out enough from the to fit snugly over the wrists, with hands removed. Lastly, the head was commissioned through Kevin Kosse who did a superb job on it!

    Yes, they are from a Jakks Pacific Rocky figure. I had to hollow them out a little with a Dremel tool so they could fit over the wrists.

    I like this A LOT! His look could EASILY transfer over to classics (minus the gloves, but maybe having two Fisto hands? Just too bad it would require having the left fist) although I think they're cool as!

    Dude, that is soooo cool and utterly perfect. I would freaking love to have one of these on my shelf. I'd really dig seeing a Destro of this quality *hint*

    Hmm, that's a good idea! I may have to find someone to chrome plate a head for me though!
