CUSTOM SNAKE EYES G.I. JOE TOY [MARVEL LEGENDS SCALE] BY DSNG!

Finally, I can post this badass!! I’ve had this Snake Eyes on the shelf for over 2 months, but I just didn’t have his brother ready [Storm Shadow]. And since I wanted to post them at the same time, I had to wait patiently….
Anyway, the base figure for this Snake Eyes was Marvel Legends Deadpool. That is a very common base. But once you take a closer look at my design, you’ll realize that it is original, since that is what I strive to usually do with my customized “GI Joe redesigns”. And that way, an old character looks fresh and unique.

I sculpted the body armor of Snake Eyes and his pouches via putty. Plus his helmet visor was also built from scratch—so it looks sharper and more lethal than the standard versions. And I had to heat and glue his “Deadpool pinky”, because it just looked awkward. Two 5mm magnets were added to his sculpted back armor, so that his combined triple-swords and his rear machinegun could be held in place.
There is a sculpted cool “I-phone device” attached to his right gauntlet, while his left gauntlet hosts an extra dagger. The right thigh’s gun holster was from Deadpool, but everything established on his left thigh was sculpted from scratch, and an extra magnet as added in there, for his submachine gun. And Tamiya paints were used to color him, in shades of flat black, metallic gray, German gray and gunmetal. In total, he has 6 swords and 5 assorted guns, which are held on his frame.
Thanks for looking, stay tuned for more!

   
    
  
  

CUSTOM STORM SHADOW COBRA G.I. JOE TOY [MARVEL LEGENDS SCALE] BY DSNG!

Another new one for 2017! This guy took a long time, but I finally got him done.

The base model for this Storm Shadow custom was the Marvel Legends Vance Archer toy. Everything you see on him was sculpted with putty, from his boots and pants to the various straps, pouches, holsters, his left shoulder-pad, knee-pads, ninja mask, belt and his gauntlets.

After the sculpts were done, Tamiya paints were used, along with Americana paints. The removable hood was cut from a white cloth, and craftwire was used to give it the shape. All of his weapons were customized in some way. Some swords & daggers were made from scratch, other were bought on ebay, like the large katana blade. The uzi stored upon his chest is held there via a small 5mm magnet, and there is another magnet placed behind his red belt, so that the submachine gun can be stored there alternatively.
In total, my Storm Shadow has 7 swords [small and large], 3 assorted guns, and 1 grappling hook [which is wrapped around his left shoulder]. Btw, my custom Snake Eyes was also posted in this blog! Stay tuned for more!

CUSTOM STALKER G.I. JOE TOY [MARVEL LEGENDS SCALE] BY DSNG!

Another new one for 2017! Today I’m showcasing Sergeant Stalker from G.I.Joe!
The base model for this Stalker custom was an Elite Roman Reigns WWE toy. I chose an Elite mold, because of the added articulation it offers. I had to take off his long hair, and after that I sculpted an army green beret hat and his ears. After the head modification was done, I decide to give him an original costume. Hence all of his gear was sculpted, while his boots were standard.

His guns were modified and sculpted as well. And I added a small 5mm magnet to the pouch sculpted on his left thigh, so that one submachine gun could be attached there. The four cylindrical frag-grenade canisters attached to his right thigh-strap were all sculpted. And there is another magnet on his back, for attaching his assault rifle. The shotgun that he holds in his left hand also has a magnet in its midpoint, so it can be swapped with the weapon held on his back. And the last magnet was added to the pouch locate on the right side of his torso - for attaching another submachine gun, held below his right armpit. In total, Stalker has 6 guns that he can hold and store on his body.

I refrained from adding a saber / ninja sword to his back, since I didn’t feel that it was necessary [But my Destro Custom had such a feature]. The pouches on the sides of his biceps were sculpted, while the pouch held behind his belt was fodder, as was the M18 Smoke-grenade storage canister held on the left side of his torso. After the sculpting stage, I painted him by hand, using two different greens, gun metal and black [Tamiya paints].
And this guy is actually bigger than the standard Marvel Legends, by about an extra 0.6 – 0.8 inches, so he’s roughly 7.0 inches tall. Stay tuned for more!

CUSTOM DESTRO - JAMES MCCULLEN, COBRA AGENT [MARVEL LEGENDS SCALE] BY DSNG!

Here is my Custom Destro, the Cobra Death Dealer / Arms Smuggler, who founded the sinister M.A.R.S. corporation. It took a while to make this one.

I utilized Marvel Legends Tombstone as the dark-colored base, and I added the head from Draxx, before modifying it and adding putty for the metallic plates on his face.
The body armor, gauntlets, boots, etc, were all fully sculpted. His weapons were heavily customized as well. And rather than given him a regular WWE Mattel briefcase that can hosts some handguns, I decided to give him a handheld boxed-mini-gun, which is held like a briefcase. And that mini-gun has a sword holstered to it, placed on the inner side. There is an extra sword fastened upon his back and an extra dagger as well, behind his belt.

His left arm and his left hand are from a HHH basic series toy, while his right arm was standard from Tombstone, and the clawed open fist on his right hand came from Draxx. Both of his gun-holsters and thigh straps were custom-made. And the customized heavy machinegun held upon his back is fastened in place via a magnet. His left gauntlet has three sculpted heat-seeking mini-missiles, which are glued in place.

Additionally, I gave him a removable phantom mask, obtained from a WWE Elite Warlord figure. Tamiya paints were used to color him, along with two shades of red. I have a habit of loading up my Joes… so my Destro has five guns [including the machinegun and briefcase], two swords, and one dagger. I couldn’t add more than that, without blocking out his gut / his chest design.

No Cobra stickers on him… the design speaks for itself. And I had to include his sexy lady, the Baroness. I also posted the full gallery of the Baroness HERE in my DSNG Blog gallery, and over at Figure Realm.
