"TIGER FORCE - a special unit within the GI JOE team - is called up for a secret and highly dangerous mission in the remote jungle!"

I've always liked Tiger Force. I can't really explain why but that subgroup has always appealed to me. Regardless, there are things about it that don't make much sense from a practical view of what is supposed to be a covert jungle assault team. Most of the figures from the original release in the vintage line followed that theme pretty well. International and later releases? Not so much. Same goes with the vehicles. My goal here was to recreate the original team but try to stay closer to the spirit of it's purpose. That means no bright colors. I've also cherry picked figures from later releases as well and added two new members, one of which is a new character. Instead of doing strait repaints of existing figures I wanted to try to go a different direction and tie in some of the other versions of these characters as well.

Ah, Big Brawler. How could I do a Tiger Force team and NOT include him? How could I do a Big Brawler custom and NOT use his original head? There's not much to say here. He's a pretty strait forward translation of his Tiger Force version and probably the most faithful of all my Tiger Force customs. He's also likely to be the only Big Brawler custom I make which is why I chose to do that compared to my other Tiger Force figures.
