used a Marvel Legends Wolverine, i have always liked the newer style costume,but the old school colors(bright yellow and light blue) so i decided to give Wolverine a make-over. like always, i gave him a base coat of white, then used the yellow paint and morning blue......after the paint i was still not satisfied so i made Wolvie a little more dangerous of a toy to play with by giving him steel claws, i used the smooth non bumpy side of a bobby pin.....i can not stress enough that as cool as this accessory is, it tends to be a little dangerous, first you want to get a good locking pair of vice grips, then you want to use a dremmel to sand off all the paint until you get down to bare metal,once that is done you want to grind down the part your going to use as the tip to an angle. once you have all your claws prepped, the next step is to heat the base of each claw with a torch lighter and while still hot, let each claw melt into the figures hand, let cool, then paint each hand.....enjoy, and any feedback is welcomed and appretiated
