Bucky's Custom Figure Contest

A couple of years ago, I ran a contest where I challenged the joecustoms community to come up with a Duke that fit in with the more modern looking figures that the pursuit of cobra line had been producing. I was really pleased with the turnout! You can see it here:
viewtopic.php?f=88&t=32519


This year, Bucky's Custom Figure Contest returns! With more options, which hopefully will lead to even more participation! This year, you get to pick from more than just one figure to make.

Your options:
G.I. Joe Freefall
G.I. Joe Heavy Duty (any version but the r.o.c.)
Cobra Astro Viper
Cobra Destro
Cobra Vapor


The rules: ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-) ;-)
-Customize the figures in the style of the 30th Anniversary/PoC style. This style means the figure should fit into the modern era, while still keeping the cues that make the character recognizable to the masses. Interpret that as you may.
-The winning figure should be able to move with as little chipping joints/paint wear, which is an even bigger challenge, and requires you to be creative! This means you may not necessarily even have to paint an entire figure! Makes it easier, right?
-Figure must be made using Modern Era parts, however accessories and parts from compatible 4 inch lines are acceptable. Sculpting is allowed.


Submissions: :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P
Submissions to the contest should be posted no later than Saturday March 1st, by midnight, IN THIS THREAD.

PRIZES:
Since there are 5 figures to choose from, there will be 5 winners. Winners will be announced on Sunday, March 2nd, no later than 10pm central time. One of each eligible CHARACTER will be chosen.
I am not announcing the prizes, they are being kept under wraps. The winners can post what they received if they like after they get the prizes. The estimated values of the prizes, so you can enter and know that you will not be getting hosed:
1st prize worth: $50-60
2nd prize worth: $40-50
3rd prize worth: $30-40
4th prize Worth: $20-30
5th prize worth: $15-20
You can make any # of the figures listed! but you are only eligible to win one of the prizes. *(unless there is low participation, which in that case you can win more than once).

*stipulation* :shifty: :shifty: :shifty: :shifty: :shifty: :shifty: :shifty: :shifty:
If you wish to participate and are a winner, you must agree to send me the custom.
That's correct, you will need to forfeit the custom! The winning customs will be displayed at my house :lol: . They will also travel with me and be displayed at any joecustoms event that I attend, whether it be a national convention, or Assembly Required. They will also be shown in pictures with other customs I make this year, so they will get lots of "airtime" on the site.

Gotta brainstorm a bit, but I hope to be able to get a figure submitted. Not sure who to tackle yet... Destro is the most appealing choice, but I don't have any new ideas for him... yet.

Jiminy Cricket. I was coming back to post I was going to try, then I saw who all else is in, and I got all intimidated...

I'll still give it a whirl, but the deadline is going to be a bit of a stretch, with my schedule.

Unfortunately, I'm only looking for modern era customs for this one.

This may be a little early strategy wise, but I have a few night shifts coming and I want to make sure I get this posted correctly.

This is my entry into Bucky’s Custom Contest 2.

I chose the character Freefall, because frankly I had no idea who he was. I did some research and found only 1 figure with that name had ever been produced. I thought for a while on what would be needed to be retained for this character to remain recognizable. I decided that the green and brown camo and the helmet with a hose going to a canister on the backpack were two essential ingredients. I also decided that he must have a limited amount of gear, as paratroopers go, based on his original figure, as contrasted with the Retaliation Sgt Airborne who has a very cumbersome webgear. I went with digital camo to have it be more modern and added some personality to his helmet. My only fear on this one is the camo, as I just started practicing with this technique. I hope this is well received.

This post will contain pics of the original figure and mine, then the 2 following posts will contain more pics of my figure.

Recipe:
Body-Retaliation Ultimate Duke
Hands-Retaliation Cobra Invasion Trooper
Head-Retaliation Sgt. Airborne
Helmet-Renegades Ripcord plus hose from Retaliation Sgt. Airborne webgear
Webgear-modded from Retaliation Sgt. Airborne webgear, Renegades Ripcord webgear, Retaliation Ult Snake Eyes belt, and 30th Hazard Viper cannister
