Lifeline: G.I. JOE Medic (Custom Action Figure)

I'll admit, I'm not a fan of Lifeline. In fact, between his "bulls eye" colored uniform and his winy pacifist banter on the cartoon I have to say that I can't really stand the character. But I know he has a lot of fans including two buddies of mine. And I seem to remember an issue of G.I. JOE Special Missions where he showed some redeeming qualities. So I bit the bullet and made a 25th Anniversary version of him.


Head - Ultimate Battle pack Short Fuze
Body - Hard Master
Lower Arms and Hands - Crimson Guard
Web Gear - Breaker
Holster - Star Wars Biggs
Helmet - Duke
Goggles - Scuba Baroness
Pouches - Cut from some other military figure
RESCUE and chest symbol - Water Slide Decals Made by Me



"Those guys in the PX know I'm a pacifist, yet they found it necessary to put a holster and gun on my web gear. I bet they think they're really funny but I'll show them! I'll show them all someday that pacifism is the way to go."


"Here I come to save the day!!!"
"Hey, no fair shooting at the Medic!"


"Stalker's looking pretty bad. Should I use the silver duct tape I carry around in this case or just put him out of his misery with the hand gun...hmmmmm?"


  1. Congrats, you made a great, fantastic work. I' m an italian GI Joe's action figure collector (and customizer)... You can have a look to my works there:

  2. Thanks for the props, Raimondo. Your customs and photos of vintage style Joes are great! I've spent time in Italy myself and I know Joes can be hard to find there. Keep up the great work!

  3. Thanks, Eric... I was shocked by your Life-Line, that' s a fantastic work. Please continue to make your great arts !
