I love when universe collide and Gill Customs has created an amazing Custom Cyclonus GI Joe Transformers Crossover made from a Conquest X-30. Painted in the classic purple and silver colors, the base vehicle makes a great start for a G1 seeker jet. In addition to the killer paint app, Cyclonus has lights in the cockpit, rear thrusters, and engines. The cockpit canopy even sports the orange color that was found on the original G1 Cyclonus figure. There have been many unique GI Joe Transformers crossover customs made over the years and I wish customizers would make more because I love both toy lines and it is great when they are blended together. If you want to see more photos of Gill Customs' crossover Custom GI Joe Transformers Cyclonus figure, head over to eBay!
Stronox Customs knows how to treat a ruler right and his Custom Cobra Serpentor figure with Thrown pays a killer homage to the ultimate Cobra leader. Both the thrown and figure have stunning detail, especially for a 4 inch figure. Stronox has given Serpentor many different looks and even gives you a hooded version, which pays respect to the original Cobra Commander figure. The cape is also wired which is a very cool addition and gives the figure an added sense of versatility and poseability. The thrown is painted almost in an Aztec fashion with 3 striking cobra heads that give the thrown a very royal feeling. The flames are a very nice touch and add to the mystique of the figure. To place a bid on this great piece of work, head over to eBay and check out Stronox's Custom Serpentor figure and Thrown!
I have always thought the Crimson Guards deserved a more beefier armor and a more versatile uniform and Homemade Joes (aka Zartanman) has finally answered the call with this Custom Cobra Crimson Guard figure. Fitted with chest armor that is painted metallic silver, one of the uniform options for this figure already looks much better than the original from the 80's. Adding a full face helmet and a shield makes it look like these Crimson Guards are headed for a riot, which probably would have benefited them in the 80's cartoon. To check out more looks to this great figure, head over to eBay and check out Homemade Joe's Custom Cobra Crimson Guard figure.
The Leader of Cobra has to be one of the most recognizable and iconic of the GI Joe figures. As a kid, I always wondered what he looked like under that silver faceshield. FrogDNA has reimagined this fearless leader with the shrieky voice with his Custom Zombie Cobra Commander figure. this figure works on a couple different levels. Yes, you can view this figure as a Zombie as it was intended or you can view it as a battle damaged Cobra Commander, which is how I am choosing to see this figure, as the leader of Cobra just coming back from a major war. His armor rittled with bullets and his faceshield torn off to reveal what he looks like on the inside. Pretty freaky! To view more photos, head over to eBay and check out FrogDNA's creepy (yet cool!) Custom Zombie Cobra Commander figure.
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!
Attention Call of Duty Modern Warfare fans! Ciabattoni2006 has created some killer versions of the troops from that video game and his Custom Simon "Ghost" Riley figure is one of them. With attention to detail straight from the game, the figure captures the face mask and overall look and feel of the game character. The figure looks like it was pieced together using figures from the GI Joe line and would make a great addition to anyone's collection.
Custom Call of Duty Modern Warfare Figures Ending Soon!

Growing up, Star Wars and GI Joe were the mainstays in my toy collection. I never really thought to cross the toy lines in battle. It never occurred to me to have Stormtroopers battle Duke and his gang of merry Joe's or have the Battle Android Troopers take on Luke Skywalker. When I first saw Psychotropic76's Custom Stellar Stiletto Rebel Starfighter, I knew there was something familiar about this one of a kind vehicle. After I remember its origins as a Cobra vehicle, I thought how cool is this!
Aside from the general shape of the Stellar Stiletto, this custom does not even resemble its former self pictured above. Giving the vehicle a Rebel scum makeover, this Starfighter looks like it belongs in one of the movies (in fact, if you look at the last picture, Psychotrpia76 has placed it in a cinema scene)! The carbon scoring and classic burgundy accents gives it the feel of a classic Star Wars vehicle. There is even a cool back story on this vehicle to make it fit right into the Star Wars Universe so head over to eBay and check out Psychotropia76's Custom Stellar Stiletto Rebel Starfighter and while you are there, place a bid to add this crossover to your Rebel alliance!
I will always have fond memories of playing with GI Joes as a child and Lifeline was a mainstay in almost every battle with Cobra that I had. Rpiaskoski's Custom GI Joe Lifeline figure reminds me of days spent spending hours creating battles between Cobra and the Joes and Lifeline was always there to clean up the mess that my Battle Android Trooper army left behind. I remember from the cartoon show that both GI Joe and Cobra and run through a hail of bullets and laser fire and come out unscathed but that did not work in my world. The Battle Android Troopers would wreak some havoc on the Joe army and Lifeline was always there to mop of the mess. Now that I have written than I see the irony that Lifeline survived every battle in my Joe universe but someone had to fix all the troops.
There are a few figures in my GI Joe past that I have fond memories of and Cobra's Trainer is one of them. I remember having grand battles between Cobra and GI Joe and Big Boa was always in the thick of it mixing it up and giving the Joes heck! Ratfink Customs has brought this classic figure up to 25th Anniversary standards with his Custom Big Boa GI Joe figure. Giving Big Boa a very different look than his vintage counterpart, the figure is given a more updated look with a Cobra Tank Top and a myriad of tattoos. It is great when customizers redefine the figures from the past and create their own styles and new looks. Keepem comin!
One of the most elusive figures in the GI Joe cartoon was the supreme leader of the terrorist organization Cobra! With his screechy high pitched voice and the slithering hiss of the tongue, Sunok Studios gives a glimpse of what could have been under the famous powder blue suit with his Custom "I was once a man" Cobra Commander figure. It looks like one of Destro's or Dr. Mindbender's experiments has gone awry as this time, the leader of Cobra is turning into an actual snake. This concept is executed nicely as we are catching Cobra Commander in a half transformation. The plastic clothing is detailed and sculpted in a way that it makes it look like the clothing is tearing off his body, exposing his scaly, serpent skin. The snake texturing gives this figure the look of a snake ready to molt its skin. To view more photos of Sunok Studios Custom "I was once a man" Cobra Commander figure, head over to eBay!
Cobra Commander gets new, updated, look courtesy of IDW via the comics and 785_Tanks with his Custom IDW Cobra Commander figure. This figure looks like it is a direct translation from the comic and captures the hard lines and features from the pages. This may be one of the best Cobra Commander concepts I have seen (aside from the 80's versions). The face shiled is very reminiscent of the Cobra Vipers and it is about time that Cobra Commander has a similar look. The helmet even has two small fangs like you see in the comic. You can imagine him leading a garrison of Vipers into battle like Patton charging into battle leading the Third Army. 785_Tanks did a fantastic job creating this figure to honor Cobra Commanders new look so head over to eBay and check out more photos of this awesome Custom IDW Cobra Commander figure.
I have a soft spot for GI Joes and sometimes it does not take much for a custom Joe figure to catch my eye but this Custom Cobra Terror Trooper is very simplistic and the concept is great! What a great formula...take a comic pack Cobra Trooper, paint it black, and gray, throw a new symbol on the chest, and you have a new line of soldier ready to dominate the world for Cobra Commander. Great concept!
Aside from the Terror Drome, Cobra has gotten the shaft when it comes to bases to execute their quest for world domination but Zartanman has addressed this with his Custom Cobra Mobile Arctic Base made from the GI ROC Pitt. The first thing you will notice is the Cobra blue, which is very reminiscent of the of the Cobra A.S.P and the Cobra Bunker colors. The snow theme really came through nicely as there is "snow" accents on the wheels and on the rook of the mobile command center. One of my favorites aspects of this base is the frozen cobra hood ornament on the front of the base and the icicle detailing that makes it look like it is rolling through the arctic tundra.
If this looks as good as it does on the outside, I can't wait to see what this looks like on the inside. There are only 4 hours left to nab Zartanman's Custom Cobra Mobile Arctic Base and you will also find many other cool GI Joe customs over on his seller page and also on the website www.procustomizers.com.
The GI Joe Tiger Force line gave me another reason to buy yet another Duke, Roadblock, and other figures I had multiples of and Chris Wheethee is giving fans of the line a new ride to haul around all of those figures with this Custom Tiger Force Tomahawk Helicopter. Sporting the tale tell markings black and yellow tiger markings, this Tomahawk captures the essence of the Tiger Force line and looks like it was made to fit in with other vehicles. The front of vehicle has hand painted jaws and features the custom blending of brown tiger face bleeding into the yellow body. The tiger stripes are well placed and no overdone. Keeping with the traditional red blades and red accents, this Custom Tiger Force Tomahawk Helicopter hits the mark with respect to truly blending in with the line.
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!
Zildjian has possibly created the coolest Transformers/GI Joe Crossover figure with his almost two feet tall Custom Transformers GI Joe Megatron figure/vehicle. Using the concept art of Don Figueroa as a blueprint for this amazing piece, Zildjian has outdone himself as this Megatron was completely scratch built from the ground up. Using joints from a Cybertron Metroplex, and Energon Omega Supreme, as well as potions from Energon Omega Supreme, he was able to craft a figure that not only looks awesome but can function as a vehicle for Destro and his troops.
The remaining 80% of this figure was custom built using styrene plastic, industrial grade plastic fusion adhesives, custom built joints, and numerous screws. With a figure like this, it is not meant to be read but seen so here is a video of all of the special features of Zildjian's Custom Transformers GI Joe Megatron:
D&D Customs has set out to create every GI Joe figure in Marvel Legends scale from years 1982 to 1988, which are really the best years for the Joe and Cobra lines. I am focusing on this Custom Marvel Legends Dusty figure today but D&D has made a countless number of other figures. Dusty was one of my favorite figures to play with as a kid and D&D has done a superb job, along with all of his other customs, in recreating that 3 3/4" classic GI Joe feel in Marvel Legends scale.
You can really see the fine detailing in a close up shot. From the classic desert camouflage to the stitching in his uniform, it looks like no detail was left untouched. The helmet and weapons tie the figure together and make D&D's Custom Marvel Legends Dusty figure very sought after if you are looking to own larger scale classic GI Joe figures. D&D is one of the best at creating this line of figures so if you don't want to lose out on this, head over to eBay and buy it now!
If you are fan of the Killzone video game, you will love jps9779's Custom Kill Squad GI Joe 25th Anniversary figures. First of all, how could you pass up a group of customs called the Kill Squad? I sure can't and jps9779 could not pass up making them! My favorite figure in this set is the Heavy Gunner as it reminds me of the Helghast figure with the way the helmet was constructed and painted. The gas mask is not only pretty cool looking but incorporates elements of both modern and vintage masks from World Wars 1 and 2. I like the double canister filter look, which pays a nice homage to the origins of the gas mask. Besides, you can't have too much protection on the battlefield!
Of course, no squad is complete without an Propaganda minister but you will have to check him out, and the Squad Leader, while you are clicking over to view jps9779's Custom Kill Squad GI Joe 25th Anniversary figures.
The Crimson Guards are the elite and best of the best in the Cobra Army and Mythic Customs has given these soldiers an upgrade with this Custom Battle Armored Crimson Guard squad. The combination of Star Wars Kamas works well on these figures and gives them a more refined look. One thing that the CG's lacked was proper body armor so it looks like Destro and the Crimson Twins have struck a deal! The armor on the figures has great coverage, especially in the neck area, where the helmet meets the rest of the uniform. The tiny rivets on the shoulder armor add realism to the uniform as well as the squad leader's silver chest plate gives the appearance of rank and order in the Cobra Army, another aspect that was lacking in the toy line and in the series.
Destro has always been the fashionable one in the Cobra Legion and Mindbender Customs has created a Crimson Pimp Daddy Destro figure to add to his wardrobe. As one of Destro's other duties is to chair the Crimson Guard meetings, he needed a suit for the special role. You can imagine Destro has a suit for every occasion and he realized that the silver head just wasn't doing it for him anymore. All in all, it is a cool concept and I like the different color head for Destro.
Looking like something out of a 1930’s science fiction movie, 785Tanks has created this Custom Steampunk General Hawk GI Joe figure. The story behind this figure is a unique one:
“General Hawk is a Renowned Sky Captain and the Father Of Scarlett who he plans one day to hand over the role of Commander
His Body was injured in a Cobra Raid so Mech Body was created to help him to move about and assist in fighting Cobra
he is more gung ho now than ever before!”
The overall clunky nature of this figure lends itself to the period very well as you can imagine having to scrap together a mech suit from materials found in the 30’s. The suit looks like a combination of a deep sea diving apparatus with some parts from an old pipe organ strapped to the back. The head sculpt also gives the impression that General Hawk was a salty sea sailor with years of experience behind him, which you can see in his face. I love the overall concept of the figure as it brings together some aspects of Star Wars as General Hawk’s body had to be salvaged and reborn as well as staying true to the classic Steampunk styling.
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.
The women in the GI Joe line have been under represented over the years but Ratfink Customs is adding one more lady to the line with his Custom GI Joe 25th Anniversary Female Alley Viper figure. The 25th Anniversary line really brought back the feeling of nostalgia for me with from the packaging to the look and feel of the figures. Ratfink's figure does the same at it is painted in the classic orange and blue camouflage that we all grew up with. I like the metal accents sprinkled throughout the figure and on the accessories. This Custom GI Joe 25th Anniversary Female Alley Viper figure would fit in great with your existing GI Joe 25th Anniversary line and would also make a great companion for the Alley Viper that was packed with the Defense on Cobra Island pack.
Giving one of Destro's military factions a refresh, Mythic Customs has made this Custom Iron Grenadiers GI Joe figure a new and updated look. There are some subtle aspects of the this custom that make this figure great. I like the addition of the sword case that is attached to the belt and the Kama, which is an accoutrement worn by certain Star Wars clone troopers. The Kama gives the Grenadier a more refined look and it gives the figure an appearance of being higher up in the military chain of command. Also, the head of this figure looks thinner than what I remember from the GI Joe 25th line (maybe my mind is playing tricks on me). One of my pet peeves with the original Iron Grenadier figures is that the head and the helmet look fused together but Mythic has solved this issue with his design as the the helmet looks distinctly different from his head. After you check out more photos of Mythic's Custom Iron Grenadiers GI Joe figure, check out his other customs as he has a very cool Cobra Viper up for sale too!
