While I typically prefer more realistic looks for the Joes themselves (not so much for Cobra) sometimes something crazy a line and becomes a different kind of cool. Outback is the best example of that. The European exclusive Tiger Force Outback, with his bright orange shirt, looks like old man Chuck Norris on Steroids.
After I did the regular outback look from the upcoming Marvel Legends old man Hawkeye, (Which you can see here) I had to go and do the Tiger Force version! 2 in fact!
The actual European tiger force version had brown camo, but that didn’t look right for some reason, neither did the gray boots, but that got me thinking and a great contrasting color to orange came to mind. I also used a blue camo head band when I cosplayed at Tiger Force Outback at a Joe con.
Next up I’ll be heading back to the world of Valaverse for another Steel Brigade recolor.
In the Latest video review, I take a look at a very tiny Hulk. While he would be no match for that MCU Abomination, he does glow in the dark, which earns him a place on my dedicated Glow in the Dark shelf.

Check out Robert Downey Jr singing with Sting and killing it! So apparently this man is Tony Stark, a pretty good Sherlock Holmes, and has a killer voice. Hard to believe prior to Iron man his career was dead a door nail. -revsears
