This was one of the figures created for Battle Corps Month, my attempt to recreate the Battle Corps line from the '90s in ME format.

GI Joe's second Oktober Guard recruit (after Red Star), Big Bear is not technically considered a Battle Corps figure due to his 1992 date stamp. However, no '90s celebration would be complete without this character in my opinion. The original figure is solidly sculpted and has a realistic military color scheme.

This custom is my second of Big Bear. I had tried my hand at it during the early days of the 25th anniversary line (early 2008), so it was long overdue for a refresh. To update it, I basically set aside the old custom and started from scratch. The collar is still not to my liking, I will need to revisit this custom in the future.

To teach, improve, share, entertain and showcase the work of the customizing community.
