Wow, amazing how a rant will kill a thread, huh?
Anyway, with all these clearances, I've been able to pick up custom fodder. So far, I've bought an Orko, Trapjaw, and regular He-Man, and made some really awesome customs. I made an Evil Orko, based on a fan-fic I wrote where Orko became Skeletor's familiar. I blackwashed the Trapjaw and added some painted-on blood to his hook and claw. It's neat. it's my favorite work too.
And the He-Man- I made a battle-worn version, with a lot of black mud and soot, and scrapes and cuts on his body. I also painted on blood to his sword and axe, to a chilling effect. It's certainly my most ambitious custom, but I'd have to post pics so you can see what I'm talking about. How do I go aobut that? I've got them on my computer, but I don't have the first clue about posting them here.
