Gi Joe Marine Gung-Ho

Gi Joe Custom Gung-Ho

Hi, guys! Tonight I bring you a new Gi Joe Custom: Gung-Ho!
This Gung-Ho Custom is a comission for a friend. He didn't like the colors from the original version, so asked me to repaint it, and here's the result.
The stand was casted by me in resin, and it works for any 1:18 (3.75) Action Figure scale.

Oi, galera! Esta noite eu vos trago um novo Custom Gi Joe : Gung-Ho!
Este Custom Gung-Ho é uma encomenda para um amigo. Ele não gostou das cores da versão original, então me pediu para repintá-lo, e este é o resultado.
A base foi feita em resina por mim, e serve para qualquer Figura de Ação em escala 1:18 (3.75).

Exército Brasileiro - Forças Especiais | Brazilian Army - Special Forces

Gi Joe Custom Brazilian Army Special Forces



This is my newest "Brazilian Joe", that's a Special Forces Operator from Brazilian Army.
I've already made other Gi Joe Customs from Brazilian Army, you can take a look at them: Brazilian Army ParatrooperBrazilian Army - 2nd LT. Artillery, SPECIAL FORCES - BRAZILIAN ARMY v2, 1st Lt. Francine (Brazilian Army)2nd LT. Artillery (Brazilian Army), Special Forces - Brazilian Army V1.

I love to make Action Figure Customs based on real life soldiers, mainly those based on Brazilian Armed Forces and Police Forces.
I also made a stand with the Brazilian Army Special Forces logo on it. This stand was made with resin and works for any 1:18 (3.75) Action Figure.

Clone Trooper - Star Wars

Star Wars Custom - Clone Trooper


One thing I love in the Star Wars Universe is the Troopers (Imperials, Clones, Rebels..).
I got a Clone Trooper Sgt. in an auction at ebay, but I don't like those colored details in green. At the same time, I loved the battle marks seen on the new troopers (movie). So I decided to paint this Sgt entirely white, like a common Clone Trooper, but with battle damaged marks and filth, giving it a more realistic appearance.
The Sideshow Version was my great inspiration to make this Clone Trooper Custom.
Unhappily, any 1:18 (3.75) Action Figure version has the backpack, as the Sideshow Trooper, so I took it from Ahsoka, released by Hasbro.

Cobra Trooper - Desert Ops

Cobra Trooper Custom - Desert Ops


Hi, guys! Let’s begin 2017 with a simple and easy Action Figure Custom, it’s a Cobra Trooper Custom, one more Cobra to my Desert Ops Team.
See the recipe for this Cobra Desert Trooper:

Body: Cobra Officer V8
Helmet: Cobra Trooper V11
Webgear: Cobra Trooper 25th
Rifle: Cobra Trooper / Officer 25th

Simple! You can make it in less than 1 minute! This is one more nice Action Figure that Hasbro haven’t released. They could've released it in the Cobra Desert Assault Squad pack, as the Cobra Officer.
I've been making some Gi Joe Customs using Action Figures from this pack, such as Barbecue, Cobra Viper, Sgt. Flash and Tripwire.

Star Wars Rebel Commando

Star Wars Custom Rebel Commando

This is my brand new Star Wars Custom, or I could say Gi Joe Custom, cause it was made 99% with Gi Joe base, except for the stand.
My first Rebel Commandos Customs were these HERE, but they were made basing on the original ones. As I've already made before with Rebel Fleet Troopers, V1 and V2 Special Forces, I made this Rebel Commando imagining how these Troopers would be nowadays, with modern gear and weapons, and that's the result.

Este é meu mais novo Custom Star Wars, ou poderia dizer Custom Gi Joe, pois foi feito 99% com base Gi Joe, com exceção do stand (base da figura).
Meus primeiros Customs Rebel Commandos foi estes AQUI, mas foram feitos baseados nos originais. Como já fiz antes com os Rebel Fleet Troopers, V1 e V2 Forças Especiais, fiz este Rebel Commando imaginando como esses Soldados seriam hoje em dia, com equipamentos e armas modernas, e este é o resultado.

Cobra Female Officer - Night Ops

Gi Joe Custom - Cobra Female Officer


As every Gi Joe collector, I always imagined how would be an Action Figure's female version of a Cobra Trooper or Cobra Officer. So a few years ago I released some Cobra Female Troopers and Officers, as you can see below:

Cobra Female Officer

Cobra Female Trooper

Cobra Python Female Officer

Cobra Female Bazooka Trooper

 Finally, Hasbro released their Cobra Female Officer, but sincerely...I hated it! They lost an excellent opportunity to realese a very nice Action Figure, and they seem to be lazy, or don't want to spend money on new Gi Joe Action Figure moulds....whatever...so I decided to make another version, but surely so much better than my previous versions, and yes, SO MUCH BETTER than Hasbro version. Well, at least in my opinion..

I used some pouches casted in resin by me, and sculpted (I don't have a 3D printer) a Cobra Trooper/Officer Helmet with a movable Night Vision Goggle.
Definitely I love to build female versions of characters that are generally males, and you'll alaways see these girls among my Gi Joe Customs.

Barbecue - Desert Ops

Gi Joe Custom Barbecue

This is one more Gi Joe Custom from my Desert Ops Team. As Sgt. Flash, Tripwire and Cobra Viper, this Barbecue Custom was made with Action Figures from the Cobra Desert Assault Squad pack. I just practically repainted the head and covered the Cobra logo on the backpack.
As the other Action Figure Customs from my Desert Ops Team, they're easy and fast to make.

Este é mais um Custom Gi Joe da minha Tropa de Operações no Deserto. Como Sgt. FlashTripwire e Cobra Viper, este Custom Barbecue foi feito com Figuras de Ação do pack Cobra Desert Assault Squad. Eu apenas praticamente repintei a cabeça e cobri o logo Cobra na mochila. Assim como os outros Custom Action Figures da  minha Tropa de Operações no Deserto, eles são fáceis e rápidos de fazer.
