Magneto vs Batman
Playmates Battle Dice figures made over 60 figures in mostly about 1/72nd scale. This guy is Magneto. I wanted more variety and so I am doing some conversions. First I cut off the flashes from his hands.
The first thing is to strip off the paint. I tried everything and nothing worked, until I tried Goof Off.
I placed the figure in a glass jar and hosed the figure down. The paint melted off as I squirted the Goof Off on him. The paint remover was so strong, it melted the figure so I kept the use of it to a minimum.
Once the paint was off, I washed him with Simple Green to cut off the Goof Off. My plan was to make Magneto into Batman.
Once the paint was removed, I added a Bat Belt and Bat Ears for Batman. I am making the 1966 TV show Batman.
