Marvel Select Phoenix: Custom Painted Action Figure by stormantic

This is a Marvel Select Phoenix action figure as based on designs of Marc Silvestri’s art for Grant Morrison’s run on New X-Men. I really liked this figure for it’s clear orange plastic and overall fiery divaliciousness, but hated it for the white plastic square you can see in the inside (it’s a two sided puzzle piece to keep the wings on).
So, I glued the wings in place and repainted the entire bird, starting in the middle. I used red paint to cover up the white square area and then used different reds, oranges, yellow and even gold to accent the fire areas. I tried to keep some of the see through plastic intact. I painted Phoenix’s hair the same as the bird and applied lipstick and black eyeliner (natch!). I also gave the face a gold wash. What do you think?
