I took another Dollar Tree Wrestler, the same exact style I used for my Robin. So first, I took him apart. Then I painted it all yellow, except for the face. I painted the waist, boots, and shoulders blue. I painted Logans sideburns with black. To mix it up, I decided to make him unmasked. (It was also easier!) So, after I painted him yellow, I painted the blue stripes. Which I messed up and had to repaint about 5 times. I usually round to the nearest 5th hour or so for the completion time. It was about 10 because I kept messing up on the stripes, well, after that, I made the claws. For Lightning Warrior, I used toothpick ends and painted them silver, but for Logan I decided to make it more real. The claws were actually made for the metal of an old, torn umbrella. It was EXTREMELY HARD to cut the metal. I had to get these GIANT clippers. I have a utility knife, and the sharp saw blade didn't even scratch it!!! I was going to dremel it to a point with my new dremel my dad gave to me, but I decided not to, since I scratched myself like 10 times. I think the blades turned out to be sharp enough. So, I hotglued the claws on the hands, and he was finished. I hope you guys like him! I am thinking of repainting the head and sculpting a mask for a costume head. So, what do you think I should do? Please say in the comments if I should keep him unmasked or if I should make him a mask! Thanks! Enjoy- Carnage99

Nice man, this is a cool Wolvie. The colors came out really clean and the lines look good. The claws came out nice as well, guess you didn't need the advice I posted on your thread after all lol. Only thing I'd suggest would be painting the blue over your hot glue, or silver like those things that are on the back of his gloves that have his claw holes (that sounded more awkward that I meant it to lol). I think you should leave it unmasked, its a good Logan face and you don't see a lot of full yellow/blue suits unmasked. Keep it up!

WOW. That was a really detailed comment! Thanks a bunch!!! You know what, I actually didn't think about painting over the hot glue! That's a good idea!!!

But make a mask....

I might, but bad_guy_robot_ said it was cool without one, because it's more rare with a costume and no mask.
