The Tiger Force figures, taken as a whole, seem a little haphazard. While there are common elements among the figures, the colors and application of tiger stripes vary widely. Maybe the higher-ups just sent out a big box of uniforms and let the troops pick what they wanted. It wouldn’t surprise me, given the team’s usual dress standards.
Seeing the Dusty mold in a two toned color scheme adds some interest for a repaint. While the final result may be a little on the garish side, the absence of all-over camo puts the figure inns different light. The same goes for the head sculpt, as we’re accustomed to seeing the team’s preeminent desert trooper in face paint. The overall effect is like looking at someone who normally wears glasses, and takes them off. Something just looks…different. I’d often thought that this version of the figure looked cheap, but now I think I was just interpreting the flat paint scheme.
If you’d like an all over tiger stripe look, you can switch out the waist and legs from Tiger Force Bazooka, since he wears the green with yellow stripe pattern on his pants. His nice pants, I should say.
