G.I. Joe Zombie Crimson Guard & Cobra Viper By Jin Saotome
: Jay Cochran - 2012.03.11
This week's TNI Cool Custom is of a custom 3.75" Zombie Cobra Viper and Crimson Guard from G.I. Joe. These customs were done by Jin Saotome
. This is how he describes the making of these figures.
"The Zombie Vipers in the Renegades GI Joe assortment provided an interesting take on Cobra's forces, mutated soldiers akin the Resident Evil style. Thinking about all the different types of Cobra troops I went one step further and created both a regular Cobra Viper and Crimson Guard all zombified by using the original bodies and swapping the Zombie Viper head and limbs on. The bombs were also added to the Zombie Viper/Crimson Guard and the back harness grafted on so you could attach the Compound-Z containers. A quick repaint later with gooey blue to keep them matching the original with some unique details brought these two soldiers to life...well, back to death?
These are fairly easy versions to make and you could probably do this for just about any of Cobra's different soldiers."
