B.I. Joe (Ferret, Fang, Armadillo)

Postby Athos » Thu Oct 11, 2012 10:34 pm

Brick Improved Joe... well more accurately, Cobra... I've been watching the old GI Joe cartoons on some dish station at night and was inspired to try my hand at MOCing something other than structures. Here's what I've come up with so far:

Cobra's Primary Fighter, the Rattler:

And Cobra's Primary Heavy Armor Tank, the Hiss:

And the whole slithery gallery:

Nice work, and please pardon the critique, but your Rattler is missing it's primary weapon feature: The tank-busting gattling cannon. Other than that your part and color choices are superb :D

The HISS is very cool. This is bringing back memories of my childhood....

Having established air superiority, the Joes bring out the artillery, with the armored HAVOC:

Including the support hover-craft:

Cross-County, Dusty and Lady Jaye stand-by to take the fight to Cobra:

The Joe and Cobra forces are evenly matched until Heavy Metal takes the field in the MBT (Manned Battle Tank), code-named Mauler:

GI Joe has Cobra outmanned and outgunned, as Covergirl arrives in the Wolverine missle-tank:

With Cobra on the run, Flint leads GI Joe in the offensive, with (what I consider one of the goofiest vehicles) the Armadillo:

But, at the last second, Storm Shadow arrives in the fully armed negator gyro-copter, codenamed Fang:

Coordinating in the counter-attack comes a Televiper on a Ferret ATV:
