BattleForce 2000. I feel like you either fall into the camp of "loved it" or "hated it". I rarely here fans say "it was alright". I fell into the camp of "loved it" thought it was a great concept but not executed all that well. As a kid I picked and chose the vehicles as some of them were truly cheap, poorly planned, and horrible looking. I did like what Hama did with them in one of my favorite comics (issue their introduction). From what I remember they were a bunch of expert technicians and soldiers field-testing the weapons of the future...that's pretty damn cool. You could see these guys being the only Joes to have access to Area 51 and Black Book projects. That is what I went for when I started thinking about redesigning these back in 2011. The personal challenge of updating the team also included doing it with parts I had readily available and would include very minor sculpting (if any). I wanted to make a series of figures that any customizer could make if they simply had the parts handy. I had hoped that Hasbro or the Collector's Club would take note at how easy these characters could be made with a little effort. I had continued to tweak them all the way up until Jeffrey "Icecreamman" Valeriano asked me to join the All Star Event. This gave me the final push to finish them up. I wanted to go with the idea that they were that Special Ops type team as opposed to "Future Force".

The Colonial Marine? I felt Hasbro had a keen ability back in the day to pull on elements of pop culture and bring them into their figures. That was the case with Dodger I felt. This design build had been used before and then after by other customizers. I looked at the aspects of the figure I liked and lost the stuff I did not (chain mail).
