Cobra Just One-Upped G.I. Joe…. Custom KRE-O Cobra Base!!

D&J Toys (David Oliveri McGovern and Joe Harris)  have created something mind blowing.....a custom KRE-O Cobra Missile Base! Yeah you read that right, they went all KRE-O on this bad boy and wow, what a cool piece this is. As you all might know, I am a huge Joe Kreo fan and this had to be shared! Now when you look at the base it is a mixture of bricks and scaled plastic, which brings the base to life. This will be a limited run and you can keep an eye on the updates HERE and please, check out D&J Toys web page as well. I personally found a few pieces I needed and you might too. FANTASTIC work guys! I can't wait to see what's next! The Kreo Cobra Base is assembled! This thing has lots of play features. With the added brick pegs, you can build up on it, attach guns, place figures, and so much more. Just like the original, the rocket lifts, the elevator rises, and as with the redesign I made on the console, this one also is it's own piece. I haven't set up the Ebay listing just yet. I will post when I do. Fornow that will be the only way I can think to do these. Honestly, it's smaller than the full size base, but it is a little harder to do because of the size. So it will cause me to space out completed ones and it wouldn't be fair to take orders since it might would take even longer to deliver than the regular base. Next year if I get the equipment I'm considering picking up though, it might make things easier and who knows what I might do from there. Until then, look for the Ebay link this week. I'll try and set it up ASAP. If all goes well, I'll put another one together next week or before Thanksgiving for sure to run a second Ebay deal. From there I'll see where to fit another in the schedule.
