And I don't think they already had M4s in these days, maybe give him a Tommy gun or something like that.

The M4 is representing an M16 (which were used in Vietnam).

That is true stone, they had M16's, and tommy guns were not used after WW2.

I have a 5 Q. game for you.
1.Why is the granade camo not O.D. Grain?
2.Why is it not flesh?
3.Why are the arms plain?
4.Why is the face so dark?
5.Why does nowone do black people in wars? (I am white but they fought in wars too.)

1. Because I wanted it that color.
2. What's wrong with yello?
3. The updated fig has some scars.
4. It's quite hard with sharpie, I thinned it out with an eraser, and it's pretty much the best you can do.
5. It's my choice to do what kind of fig I want. Just because I make him yellow doesn't make me a racist.

I love the details on that arm... Thunder Sharpie is right... that is so darn intricate.

Now for the yellow... I am sure lego went yellow initially to get rid of the whole race thing so the fact that this guy is yellow makes it less racist.

If you are upset that not enough figs are black then maybe you should make up your own scene to do it justice no? Just saying... sorry for the off topic.

I really like this piece Teebs. And Sharpie is beginning to grow on me. Razz

Oh and another way to thin out Sharpie color on a lego is sweat:P which is the main reason why I don't do sharpie anymore... my hands get too sweaty when I hand them.

Sweaty? You concentrate too much.. I just go in and draw whatever I need to. If it doesn't look up to par, then I bring out the eraser.

What exactly do you use for an eraser, if you don't mind me asking?

Yeesh. People can be so picky! I for one think this is a great fig! I also love the use of the new "Toy Story" army men.

Nah its not that... Actually my first 2 sharpie clone troopers were perfect... this is when I learned that permanent marker isn't always permanent. My son and I started to play with them and next thing you know mine turned pink. Razz

I have really hot hands at times so its just a matter of time before they sweat if handling stuff in a hot room.

Eraser is for... erasing the sharpie! Razz

And yeah, it isn't permanent. But I don't play with them, it's all for display and MOCs.

Exactly the way I feel. I've got a dozen custom figs sitting on my desk that I don't really do anything with, but they sure as hell make a nice display.

I guess I am blessed. My son won't play with the minifigs if I say don't. But those sharpie ones were for him and I to play with:P. This was before I knew they weren't permanent and I was testing their durability.

Oh guests... their kids are worst. Hola Wow!

I always get the annoying "how did you make this" comments, or "where did you get that minifig", also the way they molest my clones with their dirty fingers...

I sure am glad I don't have brothers or sisters, all of my about 25 sharpie clones would be messed up pretty bad. The thing is my mom has a dog, and one day i found one of my clone troopers pistols chewed to pieces.

Jump in front of your stuff, with your arms wide apart, and be like, ' NOOOOOOOO! Stay away from here!'

In my case, I can be so intimidating that they don't even come near my stuff.

Either, that or I need to get a separate room, and have an admissions table set up. Wink
