I believe that falls under "customize any existing character"...

Question: by 'existing charracters', would that be limited to Cannon, or would you be able to make newer versions of previous OG customs one has made?

If you have a figure you have created before and wish to update it, making a version two or version three etc, that is fine.

If there is an Oktober Guard custom in the Gallery you want to make your version of, or make a figure using a certain design, go right ahead.

Figures

Vehicles

Playsets

I've posted a few Oktober Guard Hero Machine characters, if anyone wants to make any of them...links are listed in my sig or they are in the Hero Machine thread on here.

I would also accept any Borovian customs in this Group Project too. Gulag guards, Border guards, Bezpo, etc.

I have some 'moldy oldies' from the Bivouac who could use an update

Da, Pravda Patrol...
http://gijoe.wikia.com/wiki/Pravda_Patrol

HypnoHustler did customs of these awhile back for the GIJOE Year One Group Project. http://www.joecustoms.com/projects/projects.php?p=year1

Basically, the Pravda Patrol had been created and artwork done, then was renamed and recreated as the Oktober Guard. I use them as the forerunners of the Oktober Guard myself.

Ahhh.

Also, I assume that copying the 2012 con exclusives would be cheating.

I know some have no qualms customizing pricy Convention figures, and do so all the time. I have no issues if you wanted to take the Con figures, swap parts around, and make new characters. If you are just gonna take a Con Horrorshow and paint him yellow, then that is a no go.

Using the heads of the Con figures for other characters is okay. I've seen Stormavik's head painted with a blue beret for a VDV Trooper.

Making alternate environment uniforms of each character is okay. Arctic Daina, Schrage in a wetsuit, Daina in spacesuit, etc.

Making o-rings versions of the Con figures is fine too.

I am essentially wanting customizers to add new characters (specialties) and vehicles to the Guard.

So far I have one figure in mind. It’s an original that’s a nod back to my childhood.

I would NEVER use a convention exclusive for Kitbash fodder. I was more talking along the lines of copying the parts formula...to an extent.

But yeah, I get what your saying.

Hope to get in on this. The first modern joe customizing I did was the OG.

I was wondering if there is a character amount for this I have all 6 of the original October Guard done and would like to add some new characters as well
