    Here's an idea I messed around with forever ago but I managed to warp the plastic while dying it. Came out all screwed up.
    So here's my second attempt, just getting started. Should be done with him in a couple days.

    Oh man is that ever gorgeous! Exellent color selection. Would you might sharing how you went about dying him?

    if you don't want to ward the plastic, then why not paint?

    other wise great custom.

    Goddamn, that's way better than the actual Banzaitrons.

    This mold works surprisingly well for this guy. You pulled off even nicer as well :thumb

    Great mold choice! This guy works perfectly for Banzaitron (none of that Deadbolt silliness or whatever). Did you end up dyeing this one black, or just go for the painting?

    I prefer dye jobs because it makes the final figure easier to handle... you don't have to worry about chipping, drips, etc... but it can be tricky with the heat, especially if you're going all the way from white to black.

    That's beside the point.

    Anyway, nice piece. I had thought about doing this a while ago myself.
