The Accessory set for the Man of The Sea never struck me as a "Boxed Figure" uniform.



It seems more like a 75/76 GI Joe AT set, a simplified rehash of an earlier set. It could be called "Storm Chaser" or something (as opposed to the early 70's "Hurricane Spotter" set). Nothing wrong with it, but I like my figures to have a "Boxed" look about them when not displaying a certain uniform set I'm keen on.

So, I based this kitbash of off a custom I found over on HQ, where a guy did the same thing but with the Sea Adventurer.





The Pants are Sea Adventurer issue, and the sweater comes from the Action Man Adventurer figure (this one is borrowed from Hamish Kingston until I find another).

The boots, shoulder holster and revolver, and dog tag are from the original accessory set.

Here is the original custom for reference.

Very effective Ian, the Adventurer jumper really works well with the Sea Adventurer trousers!

Yeah, great idea to give the little guy a sweater and bell bottoms, works very well... maybe some accessories too, to complete the set? Very Happy

No, this is just supposed to be a basic boxes uniform from GI Joe's AT Era.

EDIT:This sounds a bit rude, I apologize. But the point of this is to create an "out-of-the-box" for this figure. Very Happy
