Short Track and Swampsmasher ATV by ska_lives!

ska_lives posted images of his custom Short Track and Swampsmasher ATV!

My second entry into Allstars was built off of a project that I started a solid 4 years ago. I took a beater Swampsmasher and Ferret and combined them into a vehicle that looks a bit more sensible…or as sensible as a GIGANTIC gun on a 4-wheeler can look!
Before I submitted it, I thought it needed a driver so I made a simple quasi-Clutch inspired figure. If I were too, I may go back and sculpt some hair that is a bit more substantial on his head. I do like the amalgam helmet and goggles that I made though.
Hope you guys dig it, because I am super proud of the vehicles and the waterslides I made of the original masher sticker sheet.

Be sure to check out more pics of ska’s Short Track and Swampsmasher ATV!

50th Anniversary Cutter by ska_lives!

ska_lives posted images of his custom 50th Anniversary Cutter figure!

So I made this for the GI Joe ALL Stars project that Icecreamman put on at multiple forums. I made the waterslides for it myself. They have some issues, but for a first go Im pretty happy with them. Next time Ill have to adjust resolution and color levels so that they do not fade or lose sharpness (like the red sox logo on his hat).
Anywho, enjoy!

Let ska know what you think in his 50th Anniversary Cutter discussion thread!

Shinobi (One of Many)

The Fwoosh announced a new exclusive Articulated Icons figure, Shinobi (One of Many)!

There are stories of a mysterious, highly-skilled hero who always appears when needed. Whether saving a lone woman on a deserted side road from thieves or fighting off a band of outlaws, this mysterious individual has already created a legend for himself. Conflicting stories have put him at several places at once, leading many to wonder if the mystery savior is not one man but many. The Ninja seem almost supernatural in their methods, so who is to know for certain?

This Shinobi with a Fwoosh-exclusive BLUE costume will be available for pre-order soon. Additionally, this figure will also be available to all of our Kickstarter Backers in our forthcoming Backer Kit. That means you can order him with no additional shipping charges!

Keep it right here because, as you can see, there are likely more Shinobi coming soon, and in true ninja fashion, you never know where they might pop up…
