G.I. Joe Custom Cobra Despoiler by Knightstryke

by Jay Cochran
July 18, 2021
This week's TNI Cool Custom figure is of a G.I. Joe Custom Cobra Despoiler vehicle. This was created by Knightstryke. Here is how they describe the making of it:

"Just a simple repaint of the Despoiler into a Cobra Despoiler with colors inspired by the Cobra Claw. I figured if Destro sold the design to Cobra it might look a bit like this."

Check out the image(s) of their work below in our GALLERY and let them know what you think of their work in the COMMENTS SECTION below.

If you would like to submit a custom of your own creation to be featured in an upcoming Cool Custom of the Week segment, you can post your work on our FORUMS.

Day 30 - Finale Day 2 of 2!

"Dreadnok Rampage: Escapades in the Everglades" by Just Ian Customs!

"The 2004 G.I.Joe Convention "40 Years of Adventure" that took place in Orlando, FL. gave us one of the great o-ring Box set, the Dreadnok Rampage. Sadly, the only o-ring set I have is 2007 Tanks for the Memories."

"That being said, I wanted to create a modern version of this set adding missing key characters: Torch, Monkeywrench, Gnawgahyde and Zandar. I might add Zanya, Burn Out, Storm Rider, Kaos and Heartwrencher in the future, we never know."

"My biggest challenge was to stay as close as possible to the regular modern version. If some of the early 25th figure builds were not great, the famous Dreadnok Battle set that came out in 2011 was amazing. I was lucky enough to score a loose set many years ago, so I had most of the parts available. Only one problem Zarana! That figure is hard to find and not cheap. Having her part of the set was essential to the project. Since I own the SDCC standard version and some parts of Zanya I managed to cast all the parts needed and created my own copy of Zarana. I also did a copy of Hardtop head FSS version and also Junkyard from the 25th anniversary figure."

"The Dreadhead head is a modified BFS Zorro head with accessories from MTF that gave them a very similar look to their o-ring counterparts."

"I hope youll enjoy these as much as it was fun (and painful) to make ? " - Ian Lalonde (Just Ian Customs)

Day 29 - Finale Day 1 of 2

"The Hunt for Blood"

The Baroness, Baroness Elite Trooper and Major Bludd by Subway!

"The concept for these three figures comes from the fact that Major Bludd seems to be the one major Cobra that is killed in modern media. So I thought what if Cobra Commander had wanted Bludd killed and sent the Baroness to do the deed. She kills him and tell the Commander the job is done but Blood somehow survives. So years later he is in hiding out and the Baroness finds out he is not dead. So she sends her daughter who is now the Baroness to finish the job. So the new Baroness and her elite troop of mercenaries goes on the hunt for Major Bludd." - Stuart Wever (Subway)
