Some nephews that are into GI Joe sunbow cartoons, and Lego, needed Christmas presents.

These were made with water slide decals (yes I have a laser printer that has white cartridge option) paint apps (camo on pants only) rit dyemore (slaughter’s legs and hat) and some gray primer (scarlet’s legs). They turned out very well, and the children loved them!

Thanks 2DARK!

So I have decided to “resize” my Serpentor’s birth (Marvel GI Joe 49) dio to be Lego. I still had all the plans on my computer and have literally scaled them down.

The above post is Ripcord in Zartan disguise and “Sleeping Phoenix” Storm Shadow. I have a lot done already, but not a lot of pieces at the completion stage just yet.

glad to see you tackle this one no matter the scale! the serpentor helmet is great, looks just like your avatar.I can't get the last pic bigger i'd like to see what you have going on in your tanks.

i'm not sure what the differences are between lego and kreo, but if similar check out ebay for cheap fodder.

I will post pics of the tanks that are done, tonight, and explain the recipe and the tool that was used. I even remember the spoilage rate LOL

Closeups of the tanks. The pics of the “tank” by itself was my test one.

It is made from either a Powerade or Gatorade bottle. I can’t remember which brand or size they were. I bought enough for all my tanks and an extra two, to test cut.

I made them by using a hand held “mat cutter” like the “Logan Push style Mat cutter” sold at Michaels.

I've gotten a ton of those knock-off mini-figs, thought about making JOEs out of them like this, but might sell them.

Nice customs!

I’m currently building an army for serpentor to command. Cobra soldiers, officers and vipers.

I also plan on 3D printing custom parts to “connect” the tanks together, as shown in the comic. In reality they will just gently sandwich the tanks in place.

I am also planning on 3D printing a custom base for the main tank’s ladder, and the ladder holder on top.

The last things I have to design and 3D print, for the dio, are the cables from the main computer to the main tank, and “lego” style pillars, with mounting holes at minifig eye height for shields. Also crates for the specimen tubes to be transported in.
