COBRA Astro-Viper


Bucky at joecustoms.com is hosting a custom contest as part of Custom Celebration 8. I can honestly say if it weren't for my other Custom Celebration projects getting my customizing gears turning at full speed, I'd have never tackled this figure. I wasn't a very big fan of the original, and I had no idea which character from the contest's options I was going to tackle, but the Mr. Freeze figure I'd snagged just because the helmet was so COOL (sorry) turned out to be the inspiration I needed. The figure went together remarkably easy, and a lot of the parts were chosen to be a close match of the paint needed, to make the figure more posable/playable without paint rub. Ideally, the helmet/backpack would be able to open up and reveal a standard torso and head underneath, but as it it's a permanent piece. Still, I think he came out pretty fun!

Parts Recipe:
Mr. Freeze - Helmet, Upper Toros
Destro - Lower Torso, Arms, Lower Legs
TRU Charbroil - Hands
Astro-Viper - Upper Legs, Hip Support Joints
Dark Ninja - Control Arms
COBRA Trooper - Guns
