Oreobuilder is counting down to his 1,000th Custom and has shared #997, his Custom Modern Era G.I.Joe Barbecue! From OB:
I remember seeing Barbecue for the first time in the old Marvel comic issue 41. It was one of a handful of issues that I had as a kid. It is still one of my favorites. In it, the Joes attack Cobra Island to kick Cobra out before it gets recognized as sovereign territory. Barbecue plays a small but memorable (at least to a kid) role. He uses his fireman’s axe to smash the glass canopy on a HISS tank and take out the driver.
For my custom, I knew I needed to re-use the 25th torso and accessories, but looked at surrounding it with better parts. I kept the upper arms as they are well detailed, have good articulation (with a little trimming) and have the logo on the shoulder that I wanted to keep. After that, I tried to pick modern parts that had similar characteristics to achieve the vintage look. I went back and forth for the head. And finally settled on dremeling the vintage one. I have never been satisfied with the 25th version. Finally, I have a version of Barbecue that reflects the vintage version well and is not a Snow Job repaint.

Using an original Masters of the Universe Castle Grayskull as a base, Kevin added amazing detail to this piece. If you take a look, you’ll see:
Actual Leather on the Skull to simulate the look of the Dreadnok Logo
A sculpted moat that holds water
A lounge area to enjoy grape soda and donuts, of course
The Throne of Dread, Zartan’s domain
So much more
From The BroSkull Blog: This was a big job for me. I was approached to make a Dreadnok style Castle Grayskull. I immediately had an amazing idea. I wanted to make Zartan’s Swamp Lair. And I knew just how to transform the Castle Grayskull to make it work. I don’t want to reveal all my secrets. But….I used gravel, leather, sand, stickers, paint, lights, treasure chests, jewels, and MUCH MORE!
