This one was inspired by a character who first appeared back in the Silver Age of comics in issue #109 of Superboy (First Series), Swifty the Superdog. Given a serum and a spare green cape by Superboy, Swifty was intended to be a pal to Krypto.
So, I took the Silver Age Krypto the Superdog figure from the Silver Age Superboy and Supergirl boxset and used the boil and pop method to remove the Krypto head, collar/cape, and all four legs. Next, I gave the figure a full head to toe repaint in gray. Once all paint on the body was dry, I reattached the legs. Next, I removed the small hook on the back of the cape and sanded that one spot smooth and then commenced a repaint of the red cape in dark green. As soon as all of the paint on the cape was dry, I glued the cape/collar back in place around the figure's neck. Lastly, once the glue had dried, I again used the boil and pop method to reattach the Krypto head to the body, and TA-DA...Swifty the Superdog!!!!
Please let me know what you guys think of him, and as always, comments are appreciated.
