What we call the New Sculpt era is actually several product lines starting with GI Joe vs Cobra, followed by Spy Troops, Valor vs Venom and finally the internet-exclusive Direct to Consumer line. Along the way, old soldiers were given fresh looks and new characters were created. Looking back on that period between 2002 and 2006, the lines are a mixed bag remembered for strange figure proportions and so-so accessories, but also memorable new characters and fresh new ideas. This is an attempt to bring some of the better ideas into the modern era.


''I really liked the DTC Range Viper when it came out in 2005. Although it wasn't really desert or jungle or range colors, the parts used made it one of the better proportioned figures at the time. To make this custom, I used some of the original parts - the helmet and webgear. I'm hoping to make a couple more in the near future to make a fireteam.''
