Thanks Ennis, I still like that too, when he was Peace Officer Enloe.  It's the simplist custom in the world, but sometimes those work well.

Ennis, i really dig your Rykrof a lot, the brushed look on the armor and soft goods cape are very nice touches. very cool looking with the removable helmet.

i'm the process of painting my Rykrof as we speak...its a pimp daddy tribute  8)

i should be finished in a couple of days & i'll actually be on time! w00t!  :P

I finally got around to using my Mutant Rykrof head.   For your viewing pleasure, the Rykrof Zombie or Clee-Tous Rykrof of Hazard County.  Your choice.



Parts:
Body - AOD Zombie Police Chief
Head - Mutant Rykrof Head Cast

He kind of reminds me of Leather Face from Texas Chainsaw Masacur. That is one scary mutant Rykrof.

Yikes, that is very scary looking.  The things nightmares are all about!  Good job though Brent!   :)

Here is my entry, I showed this one last week or two, but wasn't happy with it.  I repainted him to try and get rid of any shine that was reflecting off of Rykrof.  It might be my favorite Rykrof custom I've made, considering the variety of parts used in going to the GI JOE line and it actually working out well, his articulation too is one of the best I've been able to do.  In person it looks a lot better.  And also I made an "action pic" of him as well.

nice looking Rykrof Chewie, I like the colors of the vest & the knee articulation. one of my fave Rykrof's  :)

BrentS - the zombie/clone gone wrong turned out, well gruesome as it should, very Evanzan-esque  ;)

well, its down to the wire, but i got my Rykrof done after all.
i would like to present a vintage style Rykrof tribute to the pimpin poofy pirate sleeves  ;D

i wanted to get a "real" Rykrof but time & money constraints held me back, and i found a bag of loose vintage at a garage sale & it was all the inspiration i needed!

the parts are :

- head & torso : vintage Mego Luke Duke
- legs: some vintage Mego black guy fig who was in the bag with everything else, maybe Black Hole or something ???
- arms: vintage Lobot








i like how it turned out & it was something different anyhow. let me know what you all think :)
