Custom #:22230  
Name:G.I. Joe Pyramid of Darkness Shipwreck
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:G.I. Joe
Creator:timshinn73  
Date Added:June 6, 2010
Base Figure:Marvel Secret Wars Mr. Fantastic
Height:3.75 inches
Here's my take on G.I. Joe's Sailor Shipwreck as he appeared in the 80's cartoon The Pyramid Of Darkness. Shipwreck & Snake-Eyes had to disguise themselves as Cobra workers in order to escape a Cobra hideout.

Recipe:
Base figure- Hasbro Marvel Secret Wars 2 Pack Mr. Fantastic
Polly- repainted Comic Pack Shipwreck
Base- Comic Pack Shipwreck
Rifle- DVD Stalker
Pistol- 25th Airborne

Mods:
Head- Removed hair details from forehead, sculpted new nair & beard with white stuff sculpting compound. Completely repainted.
Torso- Repositioned neck and sculpted new chest, vest, collar and simplified the stomach and back with white stuff sculpting compound.
Arms- Simplified muscle definition with white stuff sculpting compound.
Minor mods- Dremeled and sanded down flashing from mold lines.

Painting:
Figure was base coated with Tamiya German Gray. Tamiya and Testors paints used for lighter gray parts of uniform. Boots, gloves and belt were painted black and sealed with Microscale Industries Micro Flat. Polly was repainted using acrylics. Cobra symbol is a water slide decal.

Thanks for taking a look!
