Just another thread of me sorting out my issues...

And reminding you people what is all about...

Operation: Mindcrime

With the defeat of the Serpentor Experiment, Doctor Mindbender became obsessed with the cloning technology and splicing of genetic materials that had been developed, and he set out to try and do it again, this time in secret. He found the project to be extremely to difficult on his own, especially with his intentions of keeping the project a secret, so he took the obvious path: Cloning himself. More hands to do more work, and lab assistants he knew he could trust, as well as a formidable collective of mind power to research and troubleshoot.

As soon as he had enough clones of himself he went about building a secret lab where he could work without interference. His vanity soon got the better of him though, as he became obsessed with making more clones of himself, and he eventually abandoned his plans of a new Serpentor. He began splicing his own genetic material with that of others. Sometimes his results were less than desirable. Any time there was a conflict between Cobra and GI Joe, Dr Mindbender would be sure to get as much samples of genetic material as he could, after all - the Joes are The Best that America has to offer. He also put into motion a plan to covertly acquire samples of the DNA of certain high ranking Cobra personell. He even dabbled with some of the ideas developed for the Venomization process.

What will the end result of this operation be? How long can he keep it a secret?

The answers lie deep within the heart of Operation: Mindcrime

Feed back on the actual customs? I got nothing. Good job, keep it up all that jazz

feedback as to Benders that are clearly missing.

Dr. Storm Bender, you know with all that Storm Shadow DnA hanging around...

also The Mindnoks might be something worth looking into...

You know, most of these are quite humorous, but I really like Dr Mindbender - Surgical Strike.

On another note, has anyone ever thought the logos on the gauntlets were NOT anchors but the letter "M"?
Just a thought (that I got from the comics).

Lol, awesome to see all these again. Warped, funny, creative, the whole nine yards.

Love the back and forth with Nova's Crystal Ball customs, and miss seeing some of those exchanges.

Dan's Storm Bender comment above had me thinking in a different direction - and much more mundane - but I'd like to see Mindbender had he been a bit of an underachiever in his mad scientist plan, and ended up doing the weather for the local news instead... ;)

What's cool to me is that all these ideas are crazy, but there is some really great craftsmanship that is hidden by the humor.

I've seen a lot of these, but the ones that I don't remember and stand out are Deep Sea Mindbender, POW, and Research.

Research is just a cool custom, and a great modern take on the character.

Also like the Pez and Zartan's paper mask :D

The bath water is clear caulk. It didn't actually work out too good, as after a while it compressed, and the surface sank in a bit. I've got some other ideas to try before I can redo it...

In the meantime, here is naked Mindbender, pre-tub:

You know, I never considered that... I never really thought of it as anchors either, though, as that just didn't fit the character. I just figured it was some decorative nicknack

that's something you just can't unsee. lol

well the pics turned out awesome, but good to know there are some issues using caulk in that way.
