CUSTOM LADY JAYE AND SCARLETT! G.I. JOE TOYS [MARVEL LEGENDS SCALE] BY DSNG!

Another new one for 2017! Today we have my version of Lady Jaye from G.I.Joe!

Lady Jaye [Alison Hart-Burnett] is a busty brunette from the comics and the cartoons and her character in the G.I.Joe Retaliation movie was portrayed by Adrianne Palicki. Her original costume is all green, but I chose to utilize green and black, since it looks more badass.

For this custom, the base model was a fusion of Marvel Legends Thundra [upper body] and Captain Marvel Carol Danvers [lower body]. I had to sculpt her entire costume, her pouches, her sleeves and her boots. The frontal segment of her belt buckle came from Casting Cave, while some guns came from that Website as well.

The repainted head of Lady Jaye was Carol Danvers, with brand new sculpted hair made from green stuff putty. Her leftward gun holster was fully sculpted, using putty and cardboard. Her hat was custom made as well…. I made it a lil’ bit bigger than needed, so any of the guys can wear it too ;) Finally, Tamiya paints were used to hand-paint her.

Her weapons were customized and I cut a small white cloth to make her scarf [after I repainted it black]. Plus I added a gimmick with her sniper rifle... so the weapon's long barrel can be disconnected and held in her hand, or it can be attached to her right hip via a holster and a small 5mm magnet. And per the magnets, the machete / sword held upon her back can also be attached to her right hip as well.

In total for her borne arsenal, Lady Jaye has 4 various guns and 1 sword. The gallery in my DSNG blog includes over 30 pics of her and Scarlett, together [And Scarlett was one of my former G.I. Joe customs]. Stay tuned for more!

CUSTOM SNAKE EYES G.I. JOE TOY [MARVEL LEGENDS SCALE] BY DSNG!

Finally, I can post this badass!! I’ve had this Snake Eyes on the shelf for over 2 months, but I just didn’t have his brother ready [Storm Shadow]. And since I wanted to post them at the same time, I had to wait patiently….
Anyway, the base figure for this Snake Eyes was Marvel Legends Deadpool. That is a very common base. But once you take a closer look at my design, you’ll realize that it is original, since that is what I strive to usually do with my customized “GI Joe redesigns”. And that way, an old character looks fresh and unique.

I sculpted the body armor of Snake Eyes and his pouches via putty. Plus his helmet visor was also built from scratch—so it looks sharper and more lethal than the standard versions. And I had to heat and glue his “Deadpool pinky”, because it just looked awkward. Two 5mm magnets were added to his sculpted back armor, so that his combined triple-swords and his rear machinegun could be held in place.
There is a sculpted cool “I-phone device” attached to his right gauntlet, while his left gauntlet hosts an extra dagger. The right thigh’s gun holster was from Deadpool, but everything established on his left thigh was sculpted from scratch, and an extra magnet as added in there, for his submachine gun. And Tamiya paints were used to color him, in shades of flat black, metallic gray, German gray and gunmetal. In total, he has 6 swords and 5 assorted guns, which are held on his frame.
Thanks for looking, stay tuned for more!

   
    
  
  

CUSTOM STORM SHADOW COBRA G.I. JOE TOY [MARVEL LEGENDS SCALE] BY DSNG!

Another new one for 2017! This guy took a long time, but I finally got him done.

The base model for this Storm Shadow custom was the Marvel Legends Vance Archer toy. Everything you see on him was sculpted with putty, from his boots and pants to the various straps, pouches, holsters, his left shoulder-pad, knee-pads, ninja mask, belt and his gauntlets.

After the sculpts were done, Tamiya paints were used, along with Americana paints. The removable hood was cut from a white cloth, and craftwire was used to give it the shape. All of his weapons were customized in some way. Some swords & daggers were made from scratch, other were bought on ebay, like the large katana blade. The uzi stored upon his chest is held there via a small 5mm magnet, and there is another magnet placed behind his red belt, so that the submachine gun can be stored there alternatively.
In total, my Storm Shadow has 7 swords [small and large], 3 assorted guns, and 1 grappling hook [which is wrapped around his left shoulder]. Btw, my custom Snake Eyes was also posted in this blog! Stay tuned for more!

CUSTOM STALKER G.I. JOE TOY [MARVEL LEGENDS SCALE] BY DSNG!

Another new one for 2017! Today I’m showcasing Sergeant Stalker from G.I.Joe!
The base model for this Stalker custom was an Elite Roman Reigns WWE toy. I chose an Elite mold, because of the added articulation it offers. I had to take off his long hair, and after that I sculpted an army green beret hat and his ears. After the head modification was done, I decide to give him an original costume. Hence all of his gear was sculpted, while his boots were standard.

His guns were modified and sculpted as well. And I added a small 5mm magnet to the pouch sculpted on his left thigh, so that one submachine gun could be attached there. The four cylindrical frag-grenade canisters attached to his right thigh-strap were all sculpted. And there is another magnet on his back, for attaching his assault rifle. The shotgun that he holds in his left hand also has a magnet in its midpoint, so it can be swapped with the weapon held on his back. And the last magnet was added to the pouch locate on the right side of his torso - for attaching another submachine gun, held below his right armpit. In total, Stalker has 6 guns that he can hold and store on his body.

I refrained from adding a saber / ninja sword to his back, since I didn’t feel that it was necessary [But my Destro Custom had such a feature]. The pouches on the sides of his biceps were sculpted, while the pouch held behind his belt was fodder, as was the M18 Smoke-grenade storage canister held on the left side of his torso. After the sculpting stage, I painted him by hand, using two different greens, gun metal and black [Tamiya paints].
And this guy is actually bigger than the standard Marvel Legends, by about an extra 0.6 – 0.8 inches, so he’s roughly 7.0 inches tall. Stay tuned for more!
