Seriously, who didn't like the vintage color scheme for the Nullifiers? These guys were supposed to be the baddest of the bad. Skilled mercenary pilots who could also handle themselves in a ground fight. So Hasbro gives them tan jumpsuits covered with tan armor and some pinkish-purple trim? As with my other Iron Grenadiers, I kept close to the vintage color scheme, but I tried to spice it up a bit, too.
Parts: Entire figure (25th Anniversary Battle Armor Cobra Commander), Helmet (ARAH Nullifier v1), Submachinegun (RoC Pit Commando).
Supplies: Dremel, X-acto knife, paintbrushes, Folk Art paints, Testors Dull-Cote.
Reference: ARAH Nullifier v1.
T.A.R.G.A.T. figure, then you know exactly how I did this one. The helemt is an ARAH Nullifier head that I hollowed out with the Dremel. This took nearly an hour to do because I ended up having to get the walls of the helmet so ridiculously thin in order to fit on the head. The Battle Armor Cobra Commander figure was repainted in a color scheme that was close to the vintage look, but like I said, spiced up a little bit. He is armed with a compact submachinegun that could be easily stowed in his cockpit. Finally, I gave him a light application of Testors Dull-Cote. All in all, it was a pretty simple custom, but I really like how it turned out! The last photo here shows Nullifier in the cockpit of my custom A.G.P. (Anti-Gravity Pod).
