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...
