    I understand a lot of collectors don't really care much about the human figure that came with the HA line. Initially when I 1st saw pictures of HA Captain Lennox I though "what's with the yellowish blond hair ?". I saw someone on the japanese TF forum who did a very good touch up on him so I decided to try my luck and with my lackluster painting skill I repainted his hair & eyebrows dark brown and instantly he becomes slightly more acceptable. Here are some pics of him (with some added minor details on both Jazz and the motorcycle as well) . Hope you guys like it :)

    Bring the black hair! Bring it!

    That's code for nice change. What did you use for paint?

    The dark hair is a 100% improvement on the little guy. Nice job.

    it looks good, but you didn't fix his eyes or make him taller?

    Sorry to say that I'm not a professional customizer and with my so called lackluster paint skill this is the best I can do to improve upon the figure.

    Your "minor improvement" is actually fairly significant ;)  The uniform color change and hair color change are nice.

    If you do decide to increase his height it wont be to difficult.

    Hey, I'm a fan! Working with those little figures is so much harder than it looks. Even just holding them to do work is trouble. Nice job. I like my lennox as is, but that's just b/c he is "duke" in my HA GiJoe squad.
