    My VERY First custom!!!

    Hi everyone. I would first like to state...for the record...that I am NOT a customizer. BUT I wanted a Wun-Dar/ Wonderbread He-Man for my loose vintage collection so today I customized a vintage He-Man to create Wun-Dar to the best of my abilities. What do you guys think? (and please don't be too harsh...I am happy with it )

    I used the following:

    Vintage He-Man
    Black Zodac armor from Vintage weapons pack
    Black Zodac gun from Vintage weapons pack
    FolkArt Shiny Licorice Black acrylic paint
    FolkArt Opaque Burnt Umber acrylic paint

    It looks great, and it doesn't matter if anybody else likes it or not as long as you're happy with it.

    Having fun is what counts...hope to see more from you in the future.

    Great job!

    Thanks! I appreciate the kind words!

    I am happy with it...especially being the first time I had ever done anything like it.

    You did a great and clean job with the painting, except for that one little spot on his crotch. It looks like he spilled bleach on his furry underwear. lol.

    Still...a million times better than I could have done. Nice work!

    I am guessing that you are seeing the flash from the camera or something since I didn't miss any spots. Not sure.

    Looks great. Well done!
    I'm going to stop collecting toys and start smoking crack. Crack is cheaper and less addictive.
