First off, this was a lot of fun to do. The biggest challenge was "how do you make your action figures smile or laugh?" Originally, I was going to have Nightcrawler dress up as Brainy Smurf, but the intense look that Iceman had wasn't going to look right. So instead, I decided to go with Papa Smurf because I could sculpt the beard into a smile. One problem solved. Next, I wanted Wolverine laughing at him. Same problem. Most action figures (other than the Joker)have that "serious look". I took a ML Weapon X and carefully dremmeled the upper corners of his mouth and then used the smallest amount of sculpt to form the mouth to look like Wolverine's laughing. This was not easy to do and I don't think I would ever want to do it again. I also gave Wolverine a "haircut" and used the Dremmel to trim the back of his hair. If you like what you see, I would appreciate your vote. All comments welcomed. Thank you.

P.S. I curled Nightcrawler's tail to kind of look like the Smurfs' stump. HaHa
