Recently I had the urge to re-imagine some of my most favorite (quite a few obscure) Joes, and Dial-Tone was one of the first I took on. Initially, I was going to replicate the GI Joe Collector's Club version, but use an entirely new head sculpt (as the one they used in my opinion isn't that great), but once I got into my fodder bin, I started putting some different pieces together, and I knew I wanted to approach this classic character from a totally new direction. He uses a lot of parts His torso 25th Anniversary Mutt, arms Resolute Duke, his legs Renegades Ripcord. While I believe the tech he would carry in a more modern setting would be smaller than his original gear from the 80's, I decided to go "old school" and give him both his original backpack and rifle.

Wow, this is perfection. I love your take on the character, far more realistic, and just cooler too. Very well done!
