Second rule of Customizing: warm Water is your friend.
I was having trouble getting a rubber coat off a Sprit action figure so I tossed him in my warm bath. Came off easy.
Okay, actually I found out by accident, I just hadnt played in the bath for so long.
Wonder how much a Water Wars Doctor Octopus is on Ebay . . . . . .
" I aint playing! I'm CUSTOMIZING!"
