    So I've got this ML Sentry and I want to take it apart and repaint it, but I'm not really sure how to start. Here are a few questions for starters:

    How do I remove the cape.
    Best way to paint the cape once its off.
    How do I pop off the head... I've used the hair dryer technique on DCSH figs.
    All those joints... OVERWHELMING

    Any help would be awesome.

    my best suggestion is to ask Jin. He works with ML characters all the time, and I'm sure has a pretty good idea.

    he does have a tutorial about fixing a broken joint where there are images of a figure with his torso in pieces, and he does replace limbs, so I assume again there is a level of taking apart happening. Either way, he knows his ML figures, so he would be god to ask.

    I'm here! LOL Whenever you want a part on or off just use the hairdryer, super simple nothing to it (Cape too). Use Acrylic Paints on all of him including the cape, use multiple super thin layers(not so secret technique to get smooth finishes). Don't take the damn thing apart unless you have too the joints will get flimsy the more you do it, my best advice it to paint a thin coat of black or white paint as a primer and then move all the joints around, wherever there is paint chipping sand the heck out of it to lower the rubbing frequency. Hope this helps.

    Use the Blowdryer(How I take off all capes that are stuck on), The cape is glued on but the cape should come off with some heat, just be careful not to rip it thats all. Whatcha Makin?
