The Shadow Drome By Dark Horse

GI Joe: Jay Cochran - 2011.08.14
This week's TNI Cool Custom is of a Shadow Drome playset based on the Red Shadows from Action Force. The custom was done by Dark Horse. Here is how DH describes the making of this playset:

"I sold my Flagg and mint TD a few months ago and was left with my second TD that had been sitting in a corner gathering dust and fungus for four years. I joked with my friend that I would customise it, then thought realistically, why not?

I took it apart and washed it in the shower first. Couldn't believe it actually had fungus starting to form on the insides!

Some inside sections of the main upper section were smashed, so I had to brace and repair those. Everything was sprayed and clear coated seperately, and I replaced the gun caps with pipe reducers and LED holders. I cut out a shape of ABS plastic for the logo and sculpted the skull and crossbones. Then I cast 8 of them (I was a dumbass and realised after I only needed 6). I sprayed all the moving parts with silicone spray so they all function perfectly and like a new toy.

Then I added some customs stickers, got a 25th Firebat, and finished the job."

VERY cool! Is that an AT-AT that you're using for a transport vehicle?

Thanks for the kind words guys. I never cared much for the original Terror Drome either haha.

I'm probably one of the few Joe fans who never cared for the Terrordrome, but that Shadow Drome custom is very impressive! The colors really pop! PharmV
