    This was originally suggested by someone on allspark.com on seeing my "Blazing Fangwolf" some time back. Unfortunately I couldn't find who suggested it.

    Anyway, Cybertron Snarl was basically dyed with purple Rit clothing dye. I have his gun too but I forgot to put it in the initial dye bath. Since it takes a bit of time to prep and clean up I'll probably wait until I need to do something else purple. He could use a nice faction reprolabel too.

    It looks good. he has no tail, but I guess that's being dyed as well.

    The gun is the tail and is mentioned in the initial post. :) 
    Basically I forgot to dye it and am going to wait until I have something else that needs to be purple.

    It's regular cloth dye (in my case, Rit brand) that I buy at a standard store like Walmart. You bring the dye bath to a boil and put your figure in. Be careful with the temperature or your figure may get warped/melted.

    Some plastics take the dye differently / to different degrees.

    I think there's a tutorial on the Radicons somewhere.

    I got this wolf/dog in a action figure lot a while back:

    and am planning to turn it into a pretender shell for carnivac.

    I also have this one:

    which would make a great Chainclaw.

    I think this is an absolute stroke of genius. :thumb 

    I'd like to see a different head and the "fur" removed, but that's only because of my distaste for BW figures/aesthetic. That being said, I want to be careful about my own biases interacting with your work.

    I really think everything you did, you did so very well. GREAT job :thumb
