    Talking My "Fully Loaded" Figure "Tornado"

    Hi Check out this figure that I recently posted on the site:

    Back in the late 80s I enjoyed making customs with my friends. I had an idea to make a joe with all of the "special" parts: Repeater's waist, Nightviper's thigh, etc. But, back then, I didn't have the extra figures or parts necessary to make such a figure.

    Jump ahead 15 years... Now, with internet trading, I've finally been able to patiently trade for parts. After almost 6 months, I've built my dream joe.
    For now, I'm calling him "Tornado".

    Tornado is an independant operator, who works with the Joes or Cobra, to reach his own goals. He arrives in the most hopeless situations with his wisecracking remarks, and off color humor, and turns the tide of battle with his personal arsonal of weaponry.

    Intigrating many experimental military weapons from years past, he is a flurry of motion, guns blazing, grenades and missiles flying. Not even bothering to reload, Tornado just drops expended weapons or gear and graps another from his customized battle suit and fights on. When he runs out of ammo, Tornado relys on his mystical martial arts training & knife-fighting, if there are any enemies left to face.

    "When you see Tornado show up in a fire-fight, you PRAY that he is on your side..."

    Recipe of parts:
    Alleyviper(v1) head
    Alleyviper2 torso
    Spytroops Tunnelrat gunbelt
    Pathfinder(v2) waist
    Razorclaw rt arm
    Backblast(v1) left arm
    Nightviper: right thigh, inner left thigh
    Cpt Gridiron: Outer left thigh
    HEAT Viper: right foot
    Gnawgahyde: left foot

    Steeler: Visor/Mirage: goggles (combo)---I'm not sure about this. Ideas?
    Hawk(v3): jetpack w 4 missiles
    Backblast: knife
    Alleyviper2: knife
    Zartan(v2): knife
    Pathfinder: Machine Guns
    Cpt Gridiron: football bombs
    Rock-n-Roll(v2): shotgun
    Razorclaw: arm-blade

    Molded weapons:
    2 Shuriken
    4 grenades
    2 pistols

    I KNOW he's overloaded and not very realistic, but that is what makes him COOL!

    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks for the compliment. It would have to be a REALLY good offer before I would give him up. It took 6 months to collect all of the necessary parts and accessories from 16 joes that went into this guy...
