I did some searching on the Crayola Model Magic and found a handful of customizers who mentioned using it. Almost all of the used it for accessories such as cloaks, capes, or even skirts because they said it was flexible. However, I couldn't find any comments or complaints as to why they didn't use it for the rest of the figure. Maybe your results will shed a little light on it.
Good luck on the sculpting!
Thanks Captain, and I'll try and see tommorrow what I can do with this stuff. I know on the package it says it will not crumble or flake and that it can be painted and sanded, I doubt if it's a hard compound that could be drilled or anything though. I'm going to try and buff up this Goldberg, his arms, a little on his thighs and calves, then a little on his lats. I think I'll try and make him some leather/fur boots with it and probably his hair since Goldberg doesn't have any hair.
I thought about using some paint bristles or something for Conan's hair but I made some hair with some permoplast just to see how it would look and that was the one thing I was actually satisfied with. I don't know why the heck I tried to take a movie Hulk figure and make a Conan, he was just too darn muscular. I think I'll try and turn that figure into a custom Random (from X Factor) figure. I always thought he was a cool looking Marvel character. I also like Strong Guy, wonder if Marvel Legends will ever get around to making more obscure figures, so far they've done a great job in my opinion. The only guy I haven't liked, and I only dislike his scale, was the Cable figure, he's way too small, but he looks great.
