    Who ya gonna call??

    Hey all. This is my first G.I. Joe custom. Hopefully you don't take it as a sacrelige since its not of a Joe subject. I decided to make a fully articulated Ghostbuster out of some Joe parts. I even wrote a backstory for him.

    Recipe:
    Head - 82 Zap
    Torso - 00 Big Ben (modified)
    Waist - 00 Whiteout
    Arms - 00 Whiteout
    Upper legs - 00 Big Ben
    Lower Legs - 00 Whiteout
    Walkie-talkie - 00 Firefly
    Proton Pack - Completely Scratchbuilt

    "In the early part of this decade, the newly re-formed Cobra began experimenting with the paranormal, just like their Nazi forebears. Like many of Cobra Commander's plans, it was not well thought out. Soon, he had unleashed hordes of undead with no plan for controlling them. In response to this new threat, G.I. Joe contacted the Ghostbusters in New York to license their technology. At first, Dr. Spengler balked at the idea of their technology being used as tools of war, until he realized that there was no other alternative. These file photos show G.I. Joe operative Zap outfitted in standard issue paranormal-elimination equipment during trial runs."

    Thanks for the kind words, folks. They mean a lot. Basically for the logo I sliced a piece of white paper with my exact-o blade in the rough shape of the symbol. I then drew in the red parts with a red magic marker. Took me two or three tries to nail it.
