JLW515 Customs dropped yet another awesome custom for us to see on our forums.
This one is a custom of one of everyone’s favorite Ranger, Stalker.
This is simply a 25th Stalker head sculpt, which IMHO is the best. I just do not like that 30th version with the braided pony tail. However, I like the 30th body sculpt and paint apps the best. Marauders just announced an “Ambush-Ops” camo figure, that I’m sure I will use one day for either an updated or alternate Stalker custom.
I think I spent more time customizing Stalker’s file card than I did figure! LOL! In my Joeverse, Stalker is the First Sergeant. I think he was portrayed this way in the early Marvel comics. Stalker always seemed like a team leader. So, in my Joeverse I’ve made some rank changes and branch changes that I think work better and add some military diversity to the team – except for Cutter, he’s the only Coast Guardsman on the team!
Since my Joeverse is set “in the not so distant future” (kind of like the X-Men and GIJOE movies) I try to make the file cards as generic as can be so that they are not dated to a particular time period.
You can check out the rest of the pictures and let JLW515 know what you think by visiting the thread on our forums here.
