    PHX Customs Retro Toy Chest 3 Day 1 - American Defense from Remco

    Project: No Joe!


    The Corps, American Defense, Sgt Rock, Bronze Bombers, US Forces, Ninja Strike Force, Commando Force, there were several 3.75’’ toy lines that competed with GI Joe in the 80s and 90s. We all had at least one figure like that in our childhood collections. Most of us have had that feeling of disappointment when we ask for GI Joes for our birthday only to open a Corps figure given to us by a well-meaning Grandparent.

    Bucky and Oreobuilder have been talking about making customs based on these lines ever since they started their first Resurgence project in 2014. They opened that can of worms with last year’s ‘’Retro Toy Chest II’’ project when the whole PHX gang made some customs based on these characters. That gave the team the momentum to continue with their project. This time, HypnoHustler joins the squad! He has demonstrated his love for these lines by making several kick-butt customs of various Remco figures. They'll revisit a couple of those customs as well as show off a bunch of new ones.

    The first step was to scour the web for good reference pictures. That is easier said than done. There are a few sites that have character lists with pictures, but none are exhaustive, so the PHX Customs Team were always finding figures that were not on one site or another. They started by making a master list of all the characters we could find. They then each picked their favorites and went from there.

    Over the next two weeks, they’ll show off what we came up with. With that, we present Retro Toy Chest 3-Project: No Joe! Enjoy and happy Custom Celebration XII! Bucky, DanoftheDead, Dusty79 and Oreobuilder. Special Guest Star Hypnohustler

    Day 1 - American Defense from Remco


    ''American Defense... the very name strikes terror into the hearts of the enemies of freedom! American Defense... the elite secret troop of specialized fighters in Defense of Freedom! American Defense... headed by the Super Eight Attack Squad... America's best Defense!'' - Taken from back of 1986 packaging.

    American Defense was a line of 3 ’’ military toys sold exclusively at Kmart in the eighties. The line started with Galoob’s A-Team molds and Remco grew it from there. It was later produced by different companies and ended up in dollar stores and discount outlets. Similar to GI Joe, it included a wide variety of colorful characters. However, without a cartoon, comic or any marketing to back it up, the line rode GI Joe’s coattails for a while and then disappeared.

    Deadblow by bucky

    Deadblow-by-bucky-02-Cobra-Island-454x500.jpg

    Dead Blow, or at least this incarnation of him, is based off the Remco figure from the Desert Patrol line, which i believe is an offshoot of American Defense. The Desert Patrol line up consisted of 6 figures: Dead Blow, Major Reckoning, Radar Tech, Colonel Striker, Black Thunder and Sgt. Sand Blaster. The line came out in 1990, and may or may not have been trying to capitalize on the Gulf War.


    Parts:
    I honestly don’t remember, except the arms are from 50th Dusty. The lower legs I think are from DG Shipwreck.

    Trenchcoat by HypnoHustler

    Trenchcoat-by-HypnoHustler-02-Cobra-Island-426x500.jpg

    Trenchcoat is another part of the S.I.T. subline, and the closest thing to a major villain I’ve found in any of the Remco lines. He’s dedicated to the domination of the free world, hating freedom, and rocking purple striped deep V shirts. My version of him is definitely based on the cardback art for him more than the figure. The figure shared the same torso as Spike, Forst Trooper, Airman Package, and others, while the card art was more unique.


    Head: PoC Storm Rider with JvC Wild Bill hat
    Upper Torso: Marvel Universe Ant-Man
    Lower Torso: 25th Cobra Trooper
    Arms: Paris Pursuit Snake-Eyes
    Legs: RoC Flash with swapped feet
    Coat: Avengers Nick Fury

    Spike aka Heavy Metal by Hypno Hustler

    Spike-aka-Heavy-Metal-by-Hypno-Hustler-02-Cobra-Island-370x500.jpg

    Like a lot of Remco figures, Spike was released under more than one name with no actual changes to the figure. I’ve never been able to find a bio for him, but based on his appearance he’s your basic 80s punk/biker villain. Since the original figure had a magenta sport coat I leaned a bit more on the punk end of it, a disgruntled New Waver perhaps. My interpretation is mostly based on the look he had on the card art with the more complex boots and wristbands.


    Head: Retaliation Joe Colton with an MU Ares mohawk and a mask made from a 25th Snow Serpent head and Marauder goggles
    Torso: Temple Guardian Snake-Eyes
    Arms: 25th Ripper (single card)
    Legs: Neo-Viper

    American Defense Defender by Oreobuilder

    American-Defense-Defender-by-Oreobuilder-04-Cobra-Island-491x500.jpg

    ”Tactical Genius, supremely adaptable, American know-how at its best!”
    Defender was one of the original 8 American Defense figures. Numbered AD-1, he was available in two different color schemes – green and tan. Since that pretty much makes Defender the American Defense equivalent of Grunt, my favorite GI Joe character and I had previously made the green version, ”Tan Defender” was the first custom I put on my list for this project. Parts-wise, I changed a few elements from my green custom to use some of my fodder rather than trying to find the exact same parts. These small changes give this figure its own identity.


    Head: 25th Airborne
    Torso, arms: Retaliation Kwinn
    Legs: Poc Steel Brigade
    Harness: Marauder
    Helmet: 50th Dusty

    ”American Defense… the very name strikes terror into the hearts of the enemies of freedom! American Defense… the elite secret troop of specialized fighters in Defense of Freedom!

    Forest Green by bucky

    Forest-Green-by-bucky-03-Cobra-Island-450x500.jpg

    I remember this guy. I saw alot of him hanging on pegs at KB Toys. Part of the S.I.T. subline, Forest Green was an attempt of camo that actually is kind of intriguing and the same time silly. When looking all over the net I re-discovered him and jotted him down in my notebook, to keep in mind as to how to pull it off. Do I bring him into the 21st century and give him a gillie suit? That seemed like the easy way out, and didn't quite pay homage to the original like I wanted. While shopping the dollhouse section last winter for a basket for Max Axe (the Garbage Pail Kid seen in last year's Retro Toy Chest), I stumbled across a 2-in-1. A basket with fake plants in it. I trimmed them up, and they worked for the vision I had.

    Parts:
    DG Duke Helmet
    Roc Duke Head
    Cpt America armor
    Data Viper Thighs
    Lady Jaye Lower legs
    Arms Unknown

    Claw by HypnoHustler

    Claw-by-HypnoHustler-02-Cobra-Island-391x500.jpg

    Claw had actually been in the works far prior to this project, originally intended for the Knock-Offs Group Project on JoeCustoms. The figure stalled out when I couldn't find Claws I liked. Eventually a thrift store Transformer came to the rescue and I finished him up. The only photo of a Claw cardback I've ever found is nearly illegible, so all I know about him is that he has the strength of 12 men and is apparently a robot with a demolition specialty.


    Head: Captain America Dark Threat Hydra Soldier
    Torso: Silver Centurion Iron Man
    Upper Arms: Rise of Cobra Accelerator Suit figure
    Lower Arms: Star Wars with Beast Machines Jetstorm claws
    Upper Legs: 25th Serpentor
    Lower Legs: Iron Man 2 Comic Whiplash


    American Defense Corporal Crusher by Oreobuilder

    American-Defense-Corporal-Crusher-by-Oreobuilder-02-Cobra-Island-381x500.jpg

    Corporal Crusher was part of Remco’s US Forces line. His card art depicted him as a wrestler-type wearing championship belt and tights. His toy shared parts with several other American Defense figures and his look was more military. I based my custom on the toy. Character-wise, Crusher seems to be Remco’s Big Brawler/Sgt Slaughter mash-up. As such, he carries a big gun and a sword and can probably take on an entire battalion on his own.
    Head, torso, arms: Retaliation Roadblock

    Legs: 50th Iron Grenadier

    Day 3: Bronze Bombers from Olmec

    ''Fearlessly, the mighty U.S. 369th Infantry led the nation's greatest Black Army into battle. They fought in WWI and WWII and they never lost. There have been no warriors their equal until today! Today, we have the Bronze Bombers™! Today they defend the country against P.S.B. enemy squad. These highly skilled combatants stand for justice and they never lose!" – From 1988 card back

    The Bronze Bombers was a short-lived toy line produced by Olmec. Two "waves" were produced. The first one, released in 1988, consisted of a dozen different figures and 2 small vehicles. The figures had similar molds to Galoob's A-Team figures from the early '80s and were of lesser quality. In 1997, Olmec acquired several GI Joe molds from Hasbro and produced a 12 figure boxset consisting of recolored vehicle drivers like Motor-Viper, Skidmark, Darklon and Strato-Viper. A year later, Olmec filled for bankrupcy and Bronze Bombers line disappeared.

    Check out the full gallery of day 3 here: PHX Customs Retro Toy Chest 3 Day 3 – Bronze Bombers from Olmec

    Bronze Bombers Crazeblaze by DanoftheDead

    Bronze-Bombers-Crazeblaze-by-DanoftheDead-03-Cobra-Island-768x768.jpg

    Of all the Bronze Bombers badguys I did, this one I'm the happiest with. He required some real design and part finding, and I think he's one of the more accurate updated Darklon (or Darklon-based) figures I've seen around. I had never noticed that Crazeblaze's shoulders are swapped from Darklon's until I started pulling this together. Purple and tan-gold aren't the easiest colors to work with, so I happy the results were so smooth here. I had major frustrations with the rest of the team, and was happy to have one come out even better than I expected.

    Parts:

    Club Darklon Headcast, Darklon Gun
    Iron Grenadier - Chest Armor, Gauntlet
    James McCullen XXIV - Shoulder Armror
    Cobra Commander v43 - Arms
    Neo-Viper v9 - Torso
    Firefly v22 - Legs

    Bronze Bombers Sure Fire by Oreobuilder

    Bronze-Bombers-Sure-Fire-by-Oreobuilder-04-Cobra-Island-768x531.jpg

    The original Sure Fire figure shared the same parts as Shakka Johnson. Since I have a custom of that character, I repeated the recipe here, used a different head and painted him the proper colors. Like my other ''1988'' Bronze Bombers customs, I used mostly 25th parts to convey the retro feel of the figure.

    Head: ROC Repeater
    Torso, upper arms: 25th Duke
    Lower arms, legs: 25th Hawk

    Bronze Bombers Kaboom (Marc Walters) by Oreobuilder

    Bronze-Bombers-Kaboom-Marc-Walters-by-Oreobuilder-04-Cobra-Island-768x763.jpg

    For Kaboom, I started by building him in parts that were already mostly blue. His build is straight forward and I used mostly 25th parts to convey the retro feel of the figure. To go with his name, I made him an explosives expert and gave him appropriate accessories.

    Head: ROC Ripcord
    Torso: 25th Viper:
    Arms: DG Cobra Commander
    Upper legs: 25th Hawk
    Lower legs: ROC Pit Commando

    Bronze Bombers Firebomb by DanoftheDead

    Bronze-Bombers-Firebomb-by-DanoftheDead-03-Cobra-Island-768x768.jpg
    This was a nightmare. I spent so much time splicing the DC torso to a Joe body to retain articulation, and then the hoses and rest of the build made a lot of that pointless. I tore this guy up trying to make it all work, then struggled with the primer and orange paint job. I had such high hopes for him, but he just didn't come out as clean as I'd have like.


    Parts:

    DC Multiverse Mr. Freeze - Upper Armor
    Hazard Viper - Waist, Legs, Arms
    Secto-Viper - Head
    Techno-Viper - Canister Backpack
    MU Colossus - Feet
    Iron-Man - Hands
    Flame Throwers - The Force Awakens/Captain America The First Avenger, LEGO hoses

    Bronze Bombers Cool Breeze by Oreobuilder

    Bronze-Bombers-Cool-Breeze-by-Oreobuilder-04-Cobra-Island-486x500.jpg


    The 1988 line generally included figures that were a bit more generic (that had less flair) than the 1997 ones, but there were a couple of exceptions. One of these was Cool Breeze. Labelled as an enemy of the Bronze Bombers, Cool Breeze was clad in a stark white retro-space uniform and helmet. This is what inspired me to make this custom. I used mostly 25th parts that were already white to convey the retro feel of the figure and cut down on painting.


    Head: HACKS
    Torso: 25th Shipwreck
    Arms: ROC Storm Shadow
    Upper legs: 25th Storm Shadow
    Lower legs: 25th Red Star
    Helmet: ROC Accelerator Suit Duke

    Shortburst by Oreobuilder

    Shortburst-by-Oreobuilder-04-Cobra-Island-476x500.jpg


    For this project, I looked at all the figures in the pack as candidates for customs. I made Roughshot for Custom Celebration 2017, so I figured that I would keep going. Eventually, I want to make all twelve figures from the pack. For Shortburst, I used the same parts recipe as for Roughshot since the originals were both repaints of Strato-Viper. I added some bronze accents that were not on the original figure. These accents are included in all my current and future Bronze Bombers customs as a way of tying them all together.


    Parts:

    Head: Star Wars Finn
    Everything else: ROC Air Viper

    Day 5: Sgt Rock from Remco

    ''At the battle of Three Stripes Hill, Private Frank Rock gained a field promotion to sergeant and became the man all the other Easy Joes looked to for leadership. It was Sgt. Rock who forged Easy Company into the legendary fighting unit it became, fighting its way through Sicily, Italy, France, Belgium, Holland and ultimately, Germany.'' – From Comicvine.com

    Loosely based on the D.C. comics series, Sgt. Rock toys were produced by Remco in 1981-82. The 3 3/4" product line included figures, vehicles and playsets. Sgt Rock was the only named character in the first series. Other figures were simply known by their specialty like Ranger, Gunner, etc. A year later, Remco created a new enemy for the toy series. These consisted of repainted Sgt. Rock toys and featured a logo of a yellow snake. Apparently, "The Bad Guys" were enemies of Sgt. Rock, G.I. Joe, M.A.S.H. and "all mini action soldiers". Some Sgt. Rock accessories and vehicles would later be repainted and reused by Remco for their American Defense series.

    Check out the full gallery of Day 5 here: PHX Customs Retro Toy Chest 3 Day 5 - Sgt. Rock from Remco


    Sgt Rock Gunner by Oreobuilder

    Sgt-Rock-Gunner-by-Oreobuilder-04-Cobra-Island-768x710.jpg

    I made a Sgt Rock custom for Custom Celebration XI. I have been planning to add more characters to the ranks. Gunner proved to be different enough with his cap and rolled up sleeves to make him interesting. Parts-wise, he is still very close to my recipe for Sgt Rock, but I really like the cohesive uniforms for the team.

    Head, hat: Marauder MTF
    Torso, legs: RoC Pit Commando
    Vest: 50th Spirit
    Upper arms: 25th Mutt
    Lower arms: 25th Shipwreck
    Hands: DG Duke

    Sgt Rock Hawk by Oreobuilder

    Sgt-Rock-Hawk-by-Oreobuilder-04-Cobra-Island-768x679.jpg

    I made a Bad Guy custom of Snake for Custom Celebration XI. Now, I’m adding to the enemy ranks with Hawk. I reworked my parts recipe compared to Snake to be more in line with the other figures and I also changed the gold helmet and boots to tan to make the color scheme a bit more grounded. The 25th Duke head is not my favorite, but it is one of the only heads that can fit that Captain America helmet.

    Head: 25th Duke
    Helmet: Captain America
    Torso: 50th Falcon
    Legs: 25th Snake Eyes
    Arms: PoC Snake Eyes
    Vest: 30th Stalker
    Weapon: PoC Steel Brigade

    Sgt Rock Raider by Oreobuilder

    Sgt-Rock-Raider-by-Oreobuilder-04-Cobra-Island-768x753.jpg

    Since I was expanding the ranks of my Sgt Rock team with Gunner, I decided to add another member to the team while I was at it. Looking through the options, I liked the Green Beret. I used the same recipe as my Sgt Rock figure except for the head and beret. The standard uniform look of the team makes these customs into 4’’ versions of green army men, which is an aspect that I really enjoy.

    Head, beret: 50th Falcon
    Torso, arms, legs: RoC Pit Commando
    Vest: BBTS Spirit
    Weapon: DG Duke

    Sgt Rock Raider (repaint) by Oreobuilder

    Sgt-Rock-Raider-repaint-by-Oreobuilder-04-Cobra-Island-436x500.jpg

    After making the original all-green version of Raider, I found pictures of the camoflage version online. I really liked the colors, so I scraped together the parts to build it. I did not deviate from my established recipe. The original figures all shared the same construction, so I wanted my versions to do the same. However, I gave him a different head so that he could be a different character.

    Parts:
    Head: ROC Sgt Stone
    Harness: 50th Dusty
    Everything else: ROC Pit Commando

    Sgt Rock Machine Gun Nest Playset by Oreobuilder

    Sgt-Rock-Machine-Gun-Nest-Playset-by-Oreobuilder-08-Cobra-Island-768x680.jpg

    The Sgt Rock line included some vehicles and playsets. I made modern version of the River Commando playset for Custom Celebration XI. At the time, I also had my eye on the Machine Gun Nest. I had an old The Corps playset that fit the bill nicely, I added a bit of paint and modified it to fit a GI Joe machine gun and that was that. This is a 5-minute custom.

    Sandbags: The Corps Playset
    Machine gun: Retaliation Roadblock

    Day 6: American Defense

    ''American Defense... the very name strikes terror into the hearts of the enemies of freedom! American Defense... the elite secret troop of specialized fighters in Defense of Freedom! American Defense... headed by the Super Eight Attack Squad... America's best Defense!'' - Taken from back of 1986 packaging.

    American Defense was a line of 3 ’’ military toys sold exclusively at Kmart in the eighties. The line started with Galoob’s A-Team molds and Remco grew it from there. It was later produced by different companies and ended up in dollar stores and discount outlets. Similar to GI Joe, it included a wide variety of colorful characters. However, without a cartoon, comic or any marketing to back it up, the line rode GI Joe’s coattails for a while and then disappeared.

    American Defense Captain Impermeable by bucky

    PHX-Customs-American-Defense-Captain-Impermeable-by-bucky-04-Cobra-Island-500x412.jpg

    Captain Impermeable is a Remco US Forces figure, released around 86-87.
    One of my last minute additions to the project, Captain Impermeable (what a name) came about only because I stumbled upon the headgear in a fodder box. I looked at it for a bit, and realized it would make a great update. a couple coats of spraypaint later, and the Captain was born.

    Parts:
    TRU military line helmet
    Data Viper

    American Defense Captain Combat by Hypno Hustler

    PHX-Customs-American-Defense-Captain-Combat-by-Hypno-Hustler-05-Cobra-Island-500x497.jpg

    Very obviously inspired by Gung-Ho, Captain Combat was part of the American Defense line. He was a fun figure to put together. The chain belt is just a fun piece. While squinting at pictures of the original figure online to paint the chest tattoo, I realized he had something on his arms too. After comparing the card art and various pictures, I realized he had a heart tattoo on his bicep. Honestly I'm surprised Hasbro never had a character with one, its such a classic tattoo design, but finding out Captain Combat had one definitely made me like him more.

    Head, Torso: Marvel Universe Drax
    Upper Arms: 25th Nemesis Enforcer
    Lower Arms: Marvel Universe X-Force Wolverine
    Legs: RoC Snake-Eyes

    American Defense Frogman by Oreobuilder

    PHX-Customs-American-Defense-Frogman-by-Oreobuilder-04-Cobra-Island-500x369.jpg

    The diver was a super simple custom to make. I had a spare AOCI Wetsuit. Since the colors are so close, I started there. Even though he is completely painted, he remains completely poseable.

    Head: 50th Dusty
    Torso, arms, legs: 25th Wetsuit
    Mask, backpack, fins: 25th Torpedo

    Day 7: The Corps

    Created and produced by Lanard Toys, “the Corps!” is the toy line that has had the longest lifespan and that has been the best seller of all the various GI Joe knock-offs. The first figures were produced in 1986 and are still sold in various stores.

    Check out the full gallery of Day 7 here: PHX Customs Retro Toy Chest 3 Day 7 - The Corps from Lanard



    John Eagle by bucky

    PHX-Customs-John-Eagle-by-bucky-05-Cobra-Island-500x369.jpg

    John Eagle is one of the more frequently repainted CORPS figures from the late 80's/90's/00's. They got alot of use out of that mold, and he seemed like a legit bad ***, his early bio read that he is trained in martial arts and a veteran of many long range reconnaissance missions, and a former Special Forces Green Beret. For this incarnation, I went with the look from the John Eagle figure I owned, which I think is his original color scheme as well.

    Parts:
    Head: Kwinn
    Hat: raginspoon
    Upper body and arms: 50th trooper
    Hands: kwinn
    Legs: 50th Trooper

    Avalanche by bucky

    PHX-Customs-Avalanche-by-bucky-04-Cobra-Island-500x377.jpg

    Avalanche was a figure I used alot. Another medic always seemed to be needed in my battles. Plus, he was skier and a medic. The snow outfit is great, and lends itself easily to a modern interpretation. He was at the top of my list this go around, much as Tiger Claw was last year in Retro Toy Chest 2.

    Tactical Profile: Specializes in top secret close range combat tactics and technology.
    Dossier: Graduated at the top of his Marine Combat Training class. Developed advanced combat body armor and battle field equipment.

    Parts:
    Low Light Head
    MTF Vest
    Snow Job Body
    Dr. Mindbender FunPub collar

    Red Raven by bucky

    PHX-Customs-Red-Raven-by-bucky-05-Cobra-Island-500x444.jpg

    From YoJoe.com:
    Note that the cover art has a G.I.Joe-like "explosion" behind the characters. In addition, the filecards include the exact text from the back of G.I.Joe figures - "Clip and Save for your... Files".

    While the cardbacks pictured above were purchased in South America, the figures were produced in China. It's likely that these figures were sold in the United States at some point, because the card text is all in English. Bad English, however - "Those Guys From the Other Galaxy"????

    I've seen pictures of this line many a times, but there isn't alot of info outside of what YoJoe.com lists that tells me more. The entire line has awesome looking characters in it and Red Raven is the one I chose to represent the Power Commandos.

    Parts:
    Head: unknown
    Rest: MTF
