Thread: T.a.r.g.a.t.

    T.a.r.g.a.t.

    Another custom: T.A.R.G.A.T.


    Hardest part of this was to find a suitable helmet. Found that Space Commander jet at Dollar General and the figure that came with was the perfect head I was looking for. Here’s the result


    Enjoy!

    Unbelievable. Did you ever think about putting a MARS or Destro logo (from Cobra Stickers) on the outer shell top? But seriously man, your paint job looks incredible. Such a solid custom man.

    I'm not a big T.A.R.G.E.T. fan but I would have no problem with adding this to my collection. Wow is all I can say

    I'm loving this TARGAT. That head was a great find and works perfectly for an update here. This was one of my favorite figures as a kid (though, I don't think I really understood his specialty, I just had him fly around like he had a regular jetpack). It's very sad we have had 2 modern Iron Grenadiers con sets, but no TARGAT 3-packs. It could be released in 2 color schemes (original + IG red/gold/black).
    looking for:
    tan harness from 25th DVD pack Stalker
    black shoulder harness from Dollar General gray Duke
    tan colored legs from Renegades Tunnel Rat, POC Steel Brigade, or similar color
    sniper rifle from Retaliation GI Joe Trooper (gray) or female Cobra Trooper (black)
    vintage Backblast v1 missile launcher
    DG Storm Shadow Bow (or similar mold in black)

    Fantastic work! If they made a troop builder pack of these I'd definitely get it!
