The Mercenary Wraith used only the Wraith and no other parts. I modded the night vision goggles to light up using 2 white SMD LEDs and some fiber optic line. The switch for the goggles is located on the right leg hidden in the pocket. The batteries are located in the lower torso and they are replaceable!

Also modded the backpack to have lights and sounds too! Two red SMD LEDs are in the gun barrels, with a micro speaker in the backpack along with the button and the batteries, which are also replaceable.

The backpack can be used with any Joe (or 3 3/4 figure) that has a peg hole in the back. Simply pop off his hands and slide off the forearm armor and put on any figure you wish!

Painted with Testors Mode Masters Acryls, given a more realistic, but still 'toonish color scheme.

I will eventually do another using the clear phasing variant, should be a blast!

There is also a short video demo/eview of the Wraith on YouTube, well worth checking out. Simply enter:

I apologize in advance for the low quality of the video, but it demos the light/sound effects and features.


Thanks for looking!-----Big Hank

Thanks guy, I appreciate it! The goggles were a real pain, not so much because of scale but also because I retained the ability to flip up the mask and reveal his face! I think I show that in the demo video, not sure if I have a still pic of it.
