Love the Palpy! I did a similar thing with tempura paints, but yours came out far nicer! You've really come out with some good work there!
Let me ask you something - what's the deal with the grapple Jango? Is he spring loaded and uses that as a giant striker? What's the material of the grapple? It appears very light as he is standing well, so how well does it spring and attack?
Outstanding on the Joe's man. I ESPECIALLY like that rocket for Destro - those cuts on the side really spice it up.

Grapple Jango has no mech in him, he uses the Spring tension of the grapple line itself and twisting him and it gives a very strong whack, feels different than a spring, but still quite satisfying. I tried thinking of different, simple ways of making attacks after nearly ruining my Assajj Ventress when putting a striker mechanism in her. How bout I send you a grapple Jango? I have plenty of Jango's (missing blaster's) and like to send you one. This way you could see how it works. Just PM me your address, give me a little time though ok? I'm not sure of the material, but it hasn't broken and if it does, I made it so it can be replaced by sliding it into the tube attached to Jango's wrist. Thanks for the comps, love to meet you guys at a Tourney or Con someday.

Oh, the rocket on Destro is the factory one and when I first fired it, it was so weak, it wouldn't knock over the lightest Attacktix. I almost took his launcher apart thinking I'd change the spring, but quickly aborted that attempt. Then I realized by adding material to the notch in the shaft it would compress the spring more and man it worked. He'll knock over most all the Joe's except Duke, but Duke is hard to knock down anyway (40 pts), probably need to put him on a smaller base.
