No... I'm not stuck in a rut. I just happen to have a few of these guys to tinker with. So I've done the cape... then I've done another cape... Now I've taken the whole figure to task. This figure features a black wash to bring up the New 52 details and deepen the sculpting. Also I have taken a matte finish to capture some of that metallic look and put a shell over it... That glitter is pretty hard to fight back. The neck has been altered to allow for better movement of the head as well. I removed quite a bit of plastic from the underside of the head socket and notched out the neck in front and back. But then I noticed that did not seem to free up the double ball joint neck peg... Then I remembered that a few years back they went from a double ball joint to having an additional tab that is jointed into the upper torso I guess to keep it form popping out of the neck socket. So I took my finer engraving bit and drilled a fine hole in the base of the neck to release that extra tab of plastic. Now his head is free to move in any and all directions.
The cape did get some added attention this time. As I had hoped to do I did some additional fastening on the underside of the cape using hot glue to form the cape and basically sculpt it. You don't want to push too hard though. It will seep through the plastic.
