I know it doesn't need repeating, but I'll say it anyway: RoC Cobra Commander sucked. There's no way to sugar coat that. As the doctor, he was okay, but as CC... no, just no.

So, What's a customizer to do? In my case, nothing. This figure was not planned. One day, I just happened to be playing around with the body of the Indy Colnel Vogel and the head of the Indy Cairo Henchman and notice that, when combined, they form a pretty decent Cobra Commander. Months later, I got around to painting him, and here he is.

Interesting note: this figure, assembled but unpainted, served me as a demonstration peice in a presentation I did for some potential investors in my toy company. I didn't get their funding, but they were impressed by the proposal.

And one quick note about the background: I intended to keep the background from my previous figures, truly I did; but the colors were just to contrasting... Oh well...

I see what you've done here, making Cobra Commander an amalgalm of enemies past and present of the US. Very original. The complete black color scheme works very well, the color of evil. I remember seeing GI Joe: ROC and enjoying it but thinking 'die hard fans of this aren't going to be happy...'
