I had forgotten if I ever shared this? It was a super early QC I did of Chondu from the Headmen. I might change a couple things if I were to do it again today, maybe paint the feet, but overall I was pleased with how it came together:

I'm not familiar with the character but that's pretty impressive! I'm currently on the hunt for tentacles for a custom I'm trying to knock out. Been searching Michael's, JoAnn, and dollar stores for little plastic squids or octopuses. So far no luck but I'm tenacious.

Amazing! The paint of Kate’s sunglasses is pristine. Well done!

I love that Doctor Voodoo!

@Padrino I did do a Ruby Thursday, but like Chondu it could use some modernizing, like a better torso piece, purple arms and a gold choker. Of course her main "thing" is her fishbowl head, which is a Mysterio helm I just red sharpied into ruby goodness.

Has anyone tried painting the older soft, rubbery plastic of the early mnimates such as what was used on early capes, gloves & head pieces (like the material used on C3 Bat capes & what not)? If so any advice related to paint/sealant brands to use to minimize chipping & not have a sticky finish afterwards? Asking before I attempt a custom I want to make using one of those older parts.
