The H-Team

August 5, 2011

“H” as in “Hawk.”

High Priority

And “Haro”!

Run Down By Haro

PoC Hawks makes for a great troop builder. I’ve acquired 3 so far, to form a special team, consisting of Hawk, Duke and Clutch.

The Run Down

The body’s skin tone is in an off shade from most other G.I. Joe figures, so it’s a bit difficult to find heads that match it properly.

The Doubt

Duke’s head matches the best, as far as skin tone, but can’t properly fit the helmet. Clutch’s skin is a bit off, but the helmet fits perfectly.

The Move In

And of course, Clutch still fancies himself a ladies man.

Pop The Clutch
I’d like to get my hands on a 4th PoC Hawk figure and make it more of a rounded team. I’d just have to figure out who’s head I’d be able to use as the 4 member of H-Team. Oh that, and I’d actually have to FIND another of these elusive figures!

Joe Dios Is Down?!

May 2, 2011

Bummer. Since yesterday Joe Dios has been down. In the meantime I guess it would be good of me to update this blog. Here are some pics I took a while back, but seems I’ve never posted here.

Water Falls

Bane

People seemed to have liked this next one the most out of this set.

Knock Knock

This next one’s my personal favorite of the set.

Cornered On Felucia

Down The Wrong Alley

March 31, 2011

Here’s an HDR shot I decided to do with my Alley Vipers. This was taken at the same time I was doing the shots for issue 40 of my Snake’s Tale strip. If you look in the back ground of panel one, you’ll see the makings of this shot. I just thought the background worked and like the set up.

Down The Wrong Alley

Quick fact: This shot has all of my Alley Vipers in it. Three on foot, one Officer on the canon and two driving the tank. There are six in total. Not exactly an army build, but that’s enough for me.

LBC Clutch In HDR

March 7, 2011

I’ve Never really been satisfied with either ME Clutch figure. I couldn’t settle with either the 25th or the PoC versions. Which is weird because he’s dressed in green, which is my favorite color, so by default he should be one of my favorite Joe figures. But He never seemed quite right to me, but I digress. After looking at both of the figures I got to bashing (which is something I’ve taken a liking to) until I could settle on a figure I was satisfied with.

HDR Clutch

Head, Body, Gun, Helmet and Amo Bag: Double Clutch V4 (PoC)
Vest: Double Clutch V3 (25th)
Rifle and Goggles: Dusty V13 (PoC)
Back Pack: Duke V28 (Tiger Force)
Flash Light (In Amo Bag): Duke V42 (PoC Jungle)

I don’t know why I decided to do this shot in HDR. Guess it’s because I haven’t done one in a while.

Oh and I recently learned the what LBC means, in terms of action figure customs. It’s not “Long Beach City” (though I don’t know why it would be), it stands for “Lazy Bastard Custom.” which entails a custom that’s just comprised of swap parts and no additional work (ex: paint, molding). Or so that’s what I’ve come to understand.

Helix and Clutch

Haven’t been updating in while. Hey I got a life too. Anyway here’s some more figure pics I took while on vacation in San Fransisco.

Right Behind You

Helix On Point

These were taken  in the New People Building located in Japan Town, while waiting for AP Lucky Packs. … My girlfriend wanted one.
