Perhaps I’m a late adopter, because I only really started getting sucked into the G.I. Joe Kre-O offerings over the past few days. It took a bit for me to order the sets on ToysRUs.com and they just showed up this past week. After spending a few multi-hour marathons with my 7-year old building these sets, I am officially a fan!
Granted, this is coming from a Lego n00b who really doesn’t have a lot of backstory with building sets. All I know is the mini figures are a lot of fun, and watching these build sets come together has been a real blast. But what I’ve done is nothing compared to what some other folks are already doing. On Twitter Troy McKie Art has already spun up a bunch of very cool customs using G.I. Joe, Battleship, and even some Transformers Kre-O parts. He jumps headlong into 1987 and really does some awesome stuff with some pretty straight forward part swaps.
Check out the gallery below:
He even let us know some of the recipe’s:
- Outback is Joe Colton Head, Storm Shadow torso backwards, TF hands, and BattleShip Legs.
- Tunnel Rat is TF helmet and legs, the rest is BattleShip
- Falcon is Stalker with clutch arms and BattleShip head with Joe gear
- Fast Draw is all BattleShip and TransFormers with a bad ass rocket launcher backpack.
