Head: 25th HISS Driver
Torso, arms, armor: Resolute Zartan
Legs: 50th Hawk

''Following GI Joe's victory at Cobra Mountain, Cobra Commander and a few of his operatives have escaped. However, most of Cobra hierarchy is now in GI Joe's custody and are detained in a secret ultra-security compound in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

Now, Major Bludd has struck out on his own. Hired by an unknown employer, he has recruited an army of ruthless mercenaries to raid decommissioned Cobra bases across the globe in search of one of Cobra Commander's lost relics. To stop them, GI Joe must turn to their captured Cobra operatives to help defeat Bludd's Skull Squad. Can these former Cobra agents find redemption and stop Major Bludd?''

This custom was made for PHX Customs GI Joe Redemption project in July 2017. Filecard courtesy of doe138.

Once I settled on turning a Retaliation HISS into the Skull Crusher, a driver was required, so Rip-It made the jump from Cobra. This was a really quick custom since I had done most of the work for a previous custom. A few years ago, I made a Major Bludd custom using most of these parts. However, I now have several Bludd customs and that one became expendable. I swapped out the lower legs, cleaned it up and added some extra details. After that, I swapped and painted a 25th HISS Driver head and poof! Skull Squad Rip-It.
