Check out this spot on Custom Modern Era rendition of the [B]G.I.Joe Gatling Gunner[/B],[B] Rock & Roll v2[/B]! Created by CobraIsland.com forum member [url=http://www.cobraisland.com/forums/member.php?780-ska_lives]Ska_Lives[/url], this awesome custom piece stays true to it’s original roots while giving a breath of fresh life to this fan favorite G.I.Joe character! From Ska –
I wanted to keep it as close to the original source material as possible, yet still update and tweak a few items. The harness is completely scratch built, and outside of the color and lack of grenades, is pretty spot on IMO. The side rifle was tricky. I was hoping to find an extra one in my travels, yet never did so I opted to use something from the more modern figures. I then modified a holster to hold it. The originals molded on knife is now a usable machete as well.
I had a lot of fun making this figure and I hope that you guys enjoy it as well!
You can check out more images and a full parts list after the break!
