COIL Elite Guardsman

The Crimson Guard High Command is fond of saying that no one ever leaves the fold alive.  But this is not exactly true.  Myles Pollack, previously known as Fred XXVII, received wounds in a firefight against G.I. Joe operatives that left him with light facial scarring.  Because he no longer looked exactly like the other Fred-series Crimson Guardsmen, he was dismissed from the Guard and reassigned to menial labor duties within Cobra.  When the COIL broke free from Cobra and struck out on their own, Pollack became the only CG to leave Cobra and join them.  Once the Paoli brothers discovered his defection, they began sending men to locate and kill Pollack.  The result thus far has been several dead Crimson Guardsmen.

This was an idea that popped into my head as soon as I saw the black Dollar General Cobra Commander figure. The entire job took me about 30 minutes from start to finish.  Thanks to COIL Club member Don Neal for the figure!

  1. That's a wonderful use of the Dolalr store CC figure.

    I had a idea to use some spare CG helmets and turn them into Shadow Guard. If I can ever import the dollar store figures that is.
