Head - Bazooka
Arms, torso - Pathfinder
Waist, legs - Hardball

Hat, knife, rifle - Marauder Inc.
Backpack - Viper (modified with knife sheath from Dart)

Tanglefoot started as a backpack. I was just playing around with parts and mounted a knife sheath from a Dart figure onto the side of a Viper backpack, and modified a Marauder knife to fit it. I then decided it needed an outdoorsy-jungle-type Joe to use the pack, so Tanglefoot was born. I took the name from the IDW Special Missions series, but that's the extent of the inspiration, the concept and character design are original. I painted his hair a dark brown, but to give him more differentiation from Bazooka, he has some stubble as well.

"I don't think I've ever seen the guy go inside for any reason other than a direct order. He lives outdoors. They say he has a pup tent in his back yard so that when he's hone on leave, he doesn't have to sleep indoors. I don't believe it though. There's no way it's a pup tent. He probably builds a new lean-to every night after spending the day foraging for materials."
