This version is the most basic as it is pretty much the stock Retaliation 3-pack Beachhead figure. Just as much as I like POC Night Fox, I like this Beachhead figure. I just cut off the support straps on is webgear and gave him a ROC FN pistol and a BBI OICW rifle. The loop on the tactical holster for the pistol's silencer was cut off this time.
I always liked the POC Night Fox driver figure. He's nicely basic, nothing to write home about - yet that's what makes him one of my favorite figures for customizing. I gave him the legs of a 30th Steel Brigade SE version and slapped the chest webbing of a Retaliation 3-pack Snake Eyes on him. The combat knife came off some Marvel Universe figure and the M4 with universal key is a Marauder Gun Runner product.
The basic figure for this version is the Retaliation GI JOE Trooper in the tan version. The lower legs came off a Steel Brigade Delta, the chest webbing is from a Retaliation 3-pack Snake Eyes with the useless support straps cut off. I cut the gunbelt off the webbing of the Retaliation Trooper and glued the right hand holster of a Movie Avengers Black Widow on. The pistol is a ROC FN, the sniper rifle is from the Retaliation Trooper.
After the debacle which destroyed a major part of the G.I. J.O.E. force, General Joe Colton called upon some retired Joes. One of these old geezers was Owen Cain, Codename RIDGEBACK. Therefore, Ridgeback is an original character, an off-screen character in the Retaliation storyline. I dig the Retaliation driver figure headsculpt and have 3 of them, so I made Ridgeback in 3 different versions.
