Custom GI Joe GI Joe Pursuit of Cobra HISS Tank

Lilmosnter777 has some imagination and some skills to create this one of a kind Custom GI Joe Pursuit of Cobra HISS Tank.  By combing the best parts from a Pursuit of Cobra HISS Tank, a Pursuit of Cobra Fury vehicle, and a DTC HISS Tank, he create one ultimate armored vehicle that actually looks better than the 3 stand alone vehicles ever could!  If you need a visual, here you go:

Not only is this a killer design but the overall paint app makes this look like an actual tank that has been rolling through the mud into battle.  I have to agree with Aristotle when he said, "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts," and this Custom HISS Tank definitely fits that description.  To check our more detailed photos, head over and check out this Custom GI Joe Pursuit of Cobra HISS Tank over on eBay!

One of my other hobbies is learning as much as I can about military history so this Custom German M3 Half Track caught my eye as it captures a scene from the not so distant past where the world was at war.  The detailing and paint application on this vehicle are made to look raw and gritty, like they were fresh from the battlefield.

The added accessories add realism to the group of Germans that look like they are out to ambush some Sherman tanks that are pressing their way through Normandy France.  The Soldiers and Half Track are in 1:6 scale and this looks like a hefty piece so make sure this would fit in your space for collectibles before bidding on this Custom German M3 Half Track!

Cobra Crimson Guard Mauler Custom GI Joe Tank by GIJoeSupplyDepot

Cobra's special forces are at it again!  They have infiltrated the GI Joe line, stolen their Mauler M.B.T. and gave it the classic black and red Cobra style.  The soldiers in the Cobra army were not the smartest of people as you can see the bright crimson red tank barrel and wheels coming from a mile away but Cobra was not interested in camouflage and surprise as they yell "Cobraaaaaaaaaa" into battle.

This Cobra Crimson Mauler is painted using the classic Black and Red coloring found on the Crimson Attack Tank and the Sentry Missile System.  The glossy black was a good choice for this tank and the cobra decals were not overdone.  All in all, this is a very nice repaint of one of the coolest GI Joe tanks made.

Desert Cobra Hiss Tank Trubble Bubble Custom GI Joe Vehicle by Build-A-Rama

Being a military history aficionado, I was excited to see Build-A-Rama's Custom Desert Hiss Tank resemble a North Africa campaign style vehicle.  First, the paint scheme and weathering on this Hiss Tank makes this piece feel like a period piece from the 1940's.  I love the converted turret of the old Hiss Tank to a Trubble Bubble platform, which is a great concept!  Overall, this vehicle is very well executed and would fit very well in your 1980's or current GI Joe collection.  If you want to view more photos of Build-A-Rama's Custom Desert Hiss Tank, head over to eBay!

proudpaapaa1 has allocated budget to the Crimson Guards and given them a way attack on land and sea with his Custom Crimson Cobra HISS Tank and Killer WHALE GI Joe vehicles.  What a way to upgrade Cobra's Elite forces!  The devil is in the details with this one as he has made a great color scheme and design for some classic GI Joe and Cobra figures.  The blues and crimson red are in the right places on the HISS Tank and I like the upside down triangle cobra symbol on the side of the tank as it makes it look more militaristic.  Take a look at the detailing below:

As for the Killer WHALE, it was captured by the Crimson Guard and redone and what a great looking vehicle this is.  Again, the crimson red is the right shade and I love the choice of blue on this one.  The alternating colors really accent the right pieces on the vehicle and I love the addition of the cobra symbols on the front of hovercraft:
