Vote for your favorite custom at Hasbro's GI!

Posted in Custom Workstation

Remember the GI Joe's 25th Anniversary Custom Contest? The top three were chosen, Red Laser, Ripcord, and my custom S.W.A.R.M. They're now up on Hasbro's Official GI Joe website and you can vote for 1st place. Voting runs from the 20th to the 30th, so you have ten days to be heard. Here's the link: ... nment/Poll

They didn't include the light-up pics of my custom S.W.A.R.M. but if you want more pics of him head here: ... Swarm.html and check him out!

Those are all cool. I want to vote for all of them. Good luck on winning. Always nice seeing Hasbro showing love to the custom world. I hope more toy factory do these contest.

G.I joes are classic. I remember waking up in the morning just watching that show. Then again I was upset whenever school start heh.

Take Care All
Bye :-)

Then you'd do perfect in creating original characters! You know there's the Joe team and Cobra, good vs bad. You could make anything!

I mean that I don't know anything about GI Joes themselves, I don't know the characters or anything, if I submitted something I'd be like "Hey, yeah, I made this dude, and I gave him a wolf cuz I saw it in a comic somewhere..." Not very impressive writing on my part :P

They're getting really popular, I was surprised! Anything you need to know I'd be glad to help you out on. Anything in particular you were wondering about? They're very basic to customize and either unscrew or heat-n-pop the parts. The only hard thing to do is pop the chest open which can be easy or a real pain. A lot of people crack theirs in half by inserting a flat-head screwdriver under the back of the torso and twisting to pry it apart. I haven't had much luck with that so I take my flush-cutters and clip a gap underneath the arm. That always splits the chest and you can't usually see it because its hidden under the arm or I'll just putty it up.
