Enemy Jet Glider (Geewunner.com)It’s time for another Geewunner.com custom build. Continuing with the brilliant brick builder’s 80s GI Joe homages, it’s the Enemy Jet Glider. The one-man Cobra attack glider, first made famous by Storm Shadow in Marvel issue #21, is always a fan favorite. It cuts a very familiar outline for 80s toy fans, and that shape is accurately portrayed here. The fact that these brick creations are instantly recognizable is a testament to the fantastic design of the original toys.

Once again, this build is much more faithful to the original than Hasbro’s own Kre-O attempt. That little afterthought of a vehicle is dwarfed in form and function by this version. Scale and detail are the hallmarks of a Geewunner custom, and the CLAW’s major shape and features are rendered with an economical use of parts. Dare I say that a Cobra machine of destruction has been made…cute?

The only missing feature that’s a bit disappointing is the original CLAW’s ability to be parked. I assume that the moveable landing gear was probably too intricate of a design to create at this small scale. Whatever the case, the vehicle still looks great, especially when there’s a certain white pajama-ed ninja minifig piloting it.
