Base Figure:Rise Of Cobra Bench Press, WWE Build And Brawl Sgt. Slaughter

This figure represents one of the most controversial heel turns (becoming a bad guy) in pro-wrestling history!

As a young WWF fan, I always wanted a figure of this version of Slaughter, one to put with Cobra. My own personal story was that Sarge was acting as a double-agent to get close to gather intel on Cobra's dealings in the Middle East...yeah...

This version of Sarge started off as leftovers from two Bench Press figures that were used to make...a ROC Sarge custom, modded a bit with Apoxy Sculpt to turn Bench's jersey into a button up shirt with pocket, medals, flag, etc. The head is custom cast from a BNB Sarge, and he's wearing a Maurauder's beret. Sorry guys, I purposely left off the Iron Sheik boots he had with the curled up/pointy toes...I thought he looked like a tool with those, even back then.

In the mini dio pic, Sarge is being interviewed by my custom Hector Ramirez and facing off with my custom "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.

Great work!! I would be interested in knowing where the jeans on "Stone Cold" Steve Austin came from. I'm working on a self custom and thats something I need for it.

Thanks! The Jeans on ol' Stone Cold are from a 25th Shipwreck (The one that came in that really awesome 5-pack with Hawk, Lady Jaye, Snake Eyes and Flint), with a blue jean paint job over it. That one may be a bit difficult to find for a decent price, so you can also use a more recent Pursuit of Cobra "Storm Rider", which is a redeco of that Shipwreck.
