This week's TNI Cool Custom is more a repaint than actual custom. larkinvain gives us a look at the new 6" G.I. Joe Classified Scarlet with classic colors. Here is how they describe the making of it.

Simple repaint to give Scarlet a more 80's looking by using Vallejo Model Color Oxford Blue (practically perfectly matches the purple on the original arms) and Army Painter Skeleton Bone. Hair was painted with Citadel Khorne Red. Figure was prepped with Rust-Oleum clear Adhesion Promoter primer.

Video overview here:

I don't mind the released figure, but yours looks sooo much better. This is a custom that I may try myself, as opposed to the dozens I see but never get around to. LOL

Wow looks a lot better, I was planning on giving this figure a repaint as well once I get it, its nice to see how the sculpt looks with a diferent paint scheme. I would have given her a little bit of mustard yellow highlights in some of the parts you painted with the tan/brownish color, but thats just me, it looks really nice as you did it, specially getting rid of all that silly gold color.

That's a pretty good change

That definitely makes the figure more appealing.  I would pick one up if Hasbro did something similar.  Great job on the paint job btw.  Really well executed.

That is a better Scarlet. The current one just does not feel right with her top being emphasized in terms of metallic paint.

Not bad. I would not be surprised at all if at some point Hasbro doesn't do something similar with these figures as an official release.

Thanks! I hope Hasbro does release something official in classic colors down the line.

Hot damn that is a cool repaint, usually I'm not much fan of fan repaints or retooling, but this is one heck of a job well done there ?

Thanks!
