Never figures in Kenner's MASK line, the nameless VENOM soldiers only appeared in the DiC mini-series and then in isolated later episodes. But 30 years later here they are as "Now a Joe" figures. The DiC design isn't as catchy as that of Hydra Soldiers, RIOT Shock Troopers, or Cobra Soldiers. The roid-muncher physique gives it a somewhat specialized appeal, which I tried to capture here with early 25A pieces and the ARAH Mega Viper helmets. With most of my MASK/VENOM figures, I've used the figures as a loose starting point. With the VENOM Troopers, I stayed as close as possible to the scarce source material given the available parts.

The VENOM Soldiers complete the VENOM part of my MASK "Now a Joe" series. Still a few MASK agents to go!

Colors & Painting:

Based on the DiC cartoon.

Sculpting & Modifying:

The heads are cast. The straps across the shoulder blades are sculpted. The elbows are set in place and smoothed out to accentuate the musculature.
