I wish Hasbro would do something like this! These are great and cannot wait to see the rest!

You know I love these like a fish loves water. When the reveals are all said and done you need to make reformat them in a "wish book" catalog style. I would pay just to see these customs like that.

That is a great idea. It would make a great epilogue to this project.

Thanks guys. Just getting started, have plenty more coming.

Redmao, the head is a shrunken cast of the original 1964 Joe head. I had it specially made for this project and I think that it gave this project it's uniqueness ;-)

Once I picked up my jaw from the floor the jealousy started and now I must grovel and ask if the head will be available to purchase anywhere??? PLEASE

I really like that snow trooper. It's something that'd I'd buy multiples of it it were at retail.

I was hoping for the Green Beret and here it is in all it's 4" glory.

You do realize that after this, anything Hasbro might put out for the 50th will look lame compared to your project.
Truly a fantastic celebration.

yeah, any Hasbro folks should take note. This is how it's done.

I don't normally deride Hasbro, but these are too cool for Hasbro to be able to make! Awesome stuff!

I absolutely love what you are doing with these figures and vehicles. They are spot on. Have you thought about selling casts of the heads? Makes me want to pull my finger out and get on with my Action Man figures again.

One thing, OB: did you try to find or use a lens for your searchlight? that's about the only thing missing from the box art, and would totally sell it as a working light + mask the source piece more --

A simple piece of card bubble cut to fit would work well.
