[CUSTOMS] Gambit by Ska Lives

custom customs

Over the past few months Ive been in a creative slump. Nothing has really motivated me to work on a custom piece, and Ive only cranked out a few since I moved to Virginia last summer. Its kind of sucked really. That being said I believe the dust has beeen knocked off because I really felt motivated to do this custom!

Any how, I had the epiphany to use the ROC Rex torso to make a Gambit custom; Gambit being one of my FAVORITE X-Men characters ever. After this I found that I had a Gambit head in my fodder, and then it was just a matter of finding suitably armored legs to really hammer it home. The rest of the work came from some light green stuff sculpting on the lower legs to hide the factory pants sculpting, and using that same green stuff to make his trade mark cards and smokes. The energy effects were done with hot glue.

I hope you dig it!

Recipe:

Head – AVACS Lab Cast
Torso – ROC Rex
Arms – ” ”
Hands – ” ”
Upper Legs – ” ”
Lower Legs – 50th Rock Viper
Feet – DG Snake Eyes

Accessories:
Coat – ROC Rex
Staff – Random Fodder
Cards and cigarette – Green stuff
Energy effect – Hot glue w/ green stuff card inside

OG-One-Three Filecards: An Interview With… CodeNameSparks

Dec 122015
 

frontpage spotlight

Time to dust off what IS one of the coolest features of OG13.com…a personal salute to our Brothers-in-Arms!

Welcome once again to another installment of the OG-One-Three Filecards Thread. Today we get to trade barbs with codename: Sparks, also known as CNF (hard to shake the undying adulation he has towards one of our founders, but hey–a fresh supply of dead hookers whenever your heart desires? Who can resist?)!

In 2012, at the behest of OG13’s recruiter-extraordinaire Spiderpumpkin, our PIF group from that other forum–including codename: Sparks–defected to OG13, and instantly found a home here. codename: Sparks, along with his pretty chill wife, was the first BrOGer I had ever met in person, back in 2013, @ Indiana Joecon. He was a huge part of my first Joecon experience, as friendships forged via OG13 have me eagerly anticipating each year’s Joecon. To hell with high school reunions!

I am proud to shine the spotlight on my good buddy, Adam! Enjoy the insight into this integral member of the greatest forum on the planet…

Let’s get cookin’ with gas. Adam, what all do you collect?

[CUSTOMS] ARAH Shockwave (Siege Breaker) by Dark Perceptor

 Customs  Comments Off on [CUSTOMS] ARAH Shockwave (Siege Breaker) by Dark Perceptor
Oct 212015
 

“The Siege Breakers are the GI Joe’s tactical urban infiltration team; composed of men and women who specialize in urban combat using stealth, subterfuge, sabotage, and guerrilla warfare in cities occupied by Cobra’s Dominion Forces.”

“I’ve wanted to do a Shockwave custom for what seems like forever… he has always been one of my favorite figures from the ARAH era. So when I set out to make an urban squad, Shockwave was a must-include… his SWAT background and DEF experience make him an ideal member of the Siege Breakers. For this custom, I started with his original bulky torso and a similar color scheme to Wreckage… but after a “short” break, I decided that he’d look too much like his Nightforce or Convention counterparts and set about to make some changes. I thought the Marauders vest would be ideal for a door-kicker, and so neeeded a slimmer torso to accomodate the vest. AVAC’s torso not only fit the size requirements, but gives the look of an armored BDU, imo. (hey, i’m no expert, lol) Then I decided to go with urban camo, just because I need to do more camo… and I think it turned out alright. There’s one or two tweaks I’d like to go back and do… but for now, it’s on to the next piece. Thanks for looking, I hope you enjoy. “

From the workshop of Bucky:

Following the disastrous events of Operation Waterfront where several Joes were taken prisoner by Cobra, General Hawk has tasked Chuckles to put together a team to find and rescue his men. Meanwhile, a new group of GI Joe recruits are tasked with finding out what Cobra’s new plan is. Little do they know that both missions will lead them to Gold Springs, a nice little town in the desert…
