The boss fight guys have worked on so many Hasbro figures over the years its more likely that they have just looked at the action force figures and used the parts they are familiar with.
Compare the figures and get back to me on this. They even used the same cobrastickers.com logo placed in exactly the same place on the Baron. Plus it's a really weird combo to use for him.

They ripped me off here, it can't be denied. I'm not bothred, just sayin' though.

Nah, I asked him if I could copy first, and credited him everywhere (like in this post) afterwards. Like I do when I want to copy anyone's work. ;)

I would hate be be one of those turds who steals ideas and then takes the credit for it, that's just kid's mentality.

if if somebody had "copied" and improved on a custom I had done I would feel honoured especially if as many people had enjoyed them as much as they did being shown at a con. Like they were even more as they were done bust such esteemed members of the joe community such as the boss fight guys.

Was all confused, wondered how DH's and Meertoh's customs ended up in the Big Boss imbroglio when saw pics for the first time today, plus :zforce:Agent Helix from last year's custom comp (es tut mir leid, I forget who submitted that), now everything is alles klar.

Whilst Picasso so rightly said ....
