Hisstank member Rangeviper88 brings us into another weekend with a great custom Overkill! The paint apps and seamless attachments are fantastic!
For this custom we wanted to go with the v3 color scheme.
Overkill is the leader of the B.A.Ts so I wanted to make him thick and imposing.
He is half human and half android so I gave him armor to protect his flesh and expose his robotic parts.
Check him out after the jump!

The G.I. Joe Collector’s Club announced the figure for their Wednesday/Thursday customizing class, Red Shadows Trooper!
2018 GIJoeCon attendees signed up for the (Sold Out) Customizing Class: You will be adding a much requested character to your squad with our Red Shadows Trooper! Included in the kit this year is a BRAND NEW updated head sculpt by longtime collaborator Gigabread as well as a unique (secret!) original sculpt weapon for completing the figure during the class (also by Gigabread). The kit also includes an AK style assault rifle, torso and hardware, bloused BDU skirt and removable harness and satchel charge.
To complete your figure in the class, you will need to bring a set of arms and legs. As the base color of the figure is red (naturally!) we would suggest parts from any red G.I. Joe or COBRA figure.
Suggested possible donor parts include: Retaliation Alley Viper limbs, Retaliation Red Night Viper limbs, and the Target Exclusive red Viper or any others that might fit the build.
The class will supply basic paints (Testors Model Masters Acrylic), 2 different size brushes (20/0 and #1), Super Glues and accelerant’s, and X-acto knives. You will need to bring your identification if you are signed up for the Wednesday morning class as Convention badges will not be handed out until that evening. If you are attending the Thursday class, please bring you Convention badge to check in.
As per GIJoeCon policies, please arrive on time. No participants will be admitted after 8:45AM each day. The class will break from 12PM to 1PM each day for lunch, and end promptly at 4PM. If you have technical questions, you can reach out to JE Russell through Facebook at any time. You can also use the Contact link to submit any questions to the GIJCC about your attendance or special needs.
All of the class instructors and helpers (John Russell, Kalen, Matt & Nolan, Esvan) and Bobby Vala (Hasbro Designer), are all looking forward to seeing you! Be sure to give us a hearty “BLOOD for the BARON!” when you get in the door!
Unreal! The goofy scene to help Shipwreck and Snake Eyes escape Cobra by lounge singer Satin is captured wonderfully by HissTank member Ian.
Quite possibly the best Duke we’ve seen so far comes to us from customizer extraordinaire Pugsley. He’s given us a few whoppers before, like the custom Roadblock, now this Duke is amazing and worthy of being called the Ultimate Duke.
