Hardball, the Joe team's baseball inspired multi-shot grenadier has always been a guilty favorite of mine. He was always considered a cheesy character, but I didn't care. I always liked his original figure with his very odd uniform and his huge grenade launcher accessory. When it came time for me to do this custom, I know I wanted to pay homage to his original look, but I wanted to take his design much further. His head is from a Terminator: Salvation movie figure (the character portrayed by Common), His arms are a combo of 25th Bazooka (shoulders) and ROC Night Adder's forearms. I know they are a little long, but that came out of design necessity. I wanted his arms to be muscular, have a jersey sleeve look, AND him be able to hold his original 1988 accessory in both hands (which was really hard to do, and I tried many arms for). His legs are from a GI Joe Retaliation Roadblock, gear from various figures, including his original 1988 grenade launcher accessory!
