From the workshop of ozzie92:

“When Icecreamman invited to me to join this project, I immediately began to brainstorm Joes whose MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) had not seen the light of day in Joe lore. As I had yet to customize a completely new character, I relished the challenge. I decided on a Navy Plane Captain, Ace’s #1 most trusted partner in arms, who would perform flight line checks/etc. on his Skystriker aboard the U.S.S. Flagg. I also wanted to give him a Japanese American heritage, as their amazing W.W. II heroics in defense of our country is sadly very much unknown by the masses. I HIGHLY recommend reading up on Senator Inouye, as well as the rest of the heroes from the 100th and 442nd RCT. The 442nd RCT patch, seen on my character’s left shoulder and back of the helmet, is the red/blue/white badge with the arm upholding a torch.

Here is the story behind his codename, “Doublenuts”:

The Navy squadron aircraft with “00” (Doublenuts) designation on its tail is the plane that has the Air Wing Commander’s name on the canopy rail, in place of a pilot’s name. Since Air Wing Commander is the aspiration of my character, I thought it would be funny if Ace jokingly called him that; hence the codename. Check out the file card!

I probably had the most fun trying to replicate the plane hooks (which I believe are used to tie down the aircraft to the flight deck during rough seas).”

From the workshop of Dravenheart:

“This one took some time, but was a ton of fun. I’ve been experimenting more and more with Street Fighter characters as of late, and each has challenged me in some new way. Whether it be working with an unfamiliar body type, or sculpting up new specific details. And like a true boss character, every time I thought I had him beat, he kept dragging me into additional rounds. Looking forward to making him again, but my progress with him has helped me extensively with some of the others.

The body was generally a straightforward repaint. I added the kneepads and sculpt to the front of the boots to give the armored look. I originally intended for the cape to be removable like in the game itself, but then I found my Beta Ray Bill cape, and decided to just add to the shoulder pads a bit. The difficult part was the head. I started with Skaar. He matched Bison’s expression perfectly. I tried out about five hat casts before I found a Red Skull one that had the right look. I then had to cut it to fit on his head, then resculpt the top and back of the hat itself. I cut ears off the First Appearance Hulk, attached them, then sculpted on some hair to finish him off. Full repaint, and finally done!”

“Alrighty…I just thought this would be a cool idea for a thread. I can account for 15 total Oktober Guard members between Larry Hama’s creations and Sunbow. I have all 15: some made in ME form from the Club, some o-ringers, and 3 of them custom made. I also did a custom Oktober Guard VAMP-like vehicle. “

Dravenheart from the Chaos Crew showcases his talent and affinity for (semi-?) obscure characters with a great take on DC’s super villain, Nuclear Man.

“Noticing I have a trend lately with cast heads. lol This seemed like an absolutely insane choice of character, and I almost put the project aside about three or four times during the week I made him. But, when I was younger, I liked the thought of Nuclear Man. Mainly because it was the second time Superman fought another super powered being. Now we have more options. lol But, it crossed my mind and I didn’t see many other attempts at the character. One or two, but that was about it. So, I looked up some images and came across this one from the old tie-in comic. He was really simple overall, save for that emblem. That was a pain.”

Chaos Crew’s own ozzie92 unleashes his latest custom, an awesomely dark Red Shadows Trooper

“I struggled with this one a lot; whether to stick with bright red like the original, or go with a grittier urban version. Since I really liked the cloak, you can see my final direction. Couldn’t resist the pic showing the figure’s ‘shadow’…”

CUSTOMS: Chuckles (by Indiana Joe)

Chaos Crew’s Indiana Joe showcases his take on the Joe’s undercover operative, Chuckles! Be sure to hit the links below for more pics, and a great write-up by IJ!

“For this custom I wanted to follow the lead of the Club’s Night Force Chuckles. I found the same kind of vest, that NF Chuckles has, in my fodder box. I switched out his lower arms with Ret. Joe Colton’s lower arms. The black gloved hands and legs are from Dollar General wave 2 Shipwreck. I added a black holster (from a poc/ret. snake eyes) where the gun was on the thigh. I did not want to paint the legs. But, I could not find a good color match. so, I tried mixing the right color, Fail! the color I made was off but I told myself that it looks “faded” or it’s just a “light camo” pattern. I still need to do a dullcoat on it. I’ll do it later. The torso, upper arms, black wrist band, and accessories come from the AOCI 7pk Chuckles. the briefcase and “top secret” file are from a speed racer figure. the Lei (flower necklace) is from the Willie Scott Indiana Jones figure.”
