Shipwreck was a character that I immediately liked in the toyline and missed terribly from the movie. He would’ve been a brilliant addition, especially with his badass knit watchcap and Impact Armor instead of that stupid Popeye hat and chinos.
That said, I liked the Impact Armor heaps. So much so that I did a custom of everybody that had some, and then some! But I still had to give him some of the trademark pants and sailor-style boots. Plus, instead of the gray battle camo on the Impact Armor, I gave him blue as homage to the sea, ARR!
- Head/Torso/Arms/Upper Legs – Shippie
- Lower Legs – ROC Storm Shadow
- Feet – Damn… I honestly forget. The Customs Box is getting pretty full these days.
Shipwreck was fun and I’m really happy with how he turned out. EXCEPT… the joints. Fukkinell, it is a bastard to try and get the joints whittled down to where they won’t rub paint off when you move his legs. I’m still not sure that he’s okay for this, but I’m too afraid to check. FRUSTRATING.
