    This looks great. But just a small comment on the horns. I think Greasebat will end up hornless when you switch off the lights?

    This GID Greasebat is insane! I'm a sucker for glow in the dark and I think the use of just the right amount of paint really accentuates the figure's sculpt. Great job all the way around.

    I hope they glow through a bit but even if they don't, I can deal. Really loving the restrained paint job. The eyes being the same color as the skin around them adds weight to the horns and mouth. I also think it mellows the cartoonish effect pupils have on the eyes of other painted versions. I actually like that effect anyways but for me this version shows a different side of GB's face.

    this is just one of those figures that I will land up trying to buy again and again. the character is just that strong.

    that said, i'm finding the choice of using gold for the horns and feet a little strange with the GID.
    Maybe it's a nod to the first M5 Bravo and Stee-Gar colourway. it will complement them nicely.

    haha! yeah the horns will likely disappear in a dark room... the paint is solid on the horns and toes. All gelatinous hair/horn based body parts get a solid coat!

    I am super thrilled with the paint, we had a couple stumbles getting it right and I am really happy with the end result, for the same reasons you all have commented on.

    I'm surprised by how different his face looks with eyes the same color as the face. Lately I've been toying with the darker vinyls and the face color being just a shade lighter than the vinyl, giving him less of a tiki mask / cereal mascot look. Although I like those concepts too!

    Another view, photo from Monster Worship. You can see what I mean about the face being an almost solid color.

    that mouth is gonna look pretty intense in the dark. i'm picturing floating glow teeth!

    Gonna make for some awesome night-time fight-scene shots.

    Now if only someone would make some glow in the dark skyscrapers...

    I launched a new MW website so everyone will have to create a new user account for the new shop! So if u wanna buy a GID Greasebat tonight (6/22 6PM) make sure you are all set up by going to the store prior to 6pm (select my account) and make sure u sign up for the mailing list too.

    I will make the new shirts available before hand so you can combine shipping and not have to rush to throw everything into the cart.

    thanks!
