They come uncut, fresh outta the mold (well, 1985 fresh...unless, perhaps, these were recently repopped by someone in HK who got a hold of the mold...entirely possible), with hands attached to a sprue that juts off the leg:
My plan for these guys is to clean 'em up (cut and trim the arms, and deal with the fair amount of seam flash through trimming and sanding), ship 'em off to a certain (most excellent) painter of customs who has kindly agreed to give them a nice, even "primer" coat of V-Color white, then paint 'em up. Actually, I'll probably use little paint- most of their coloring will come from finely ground chalk pastels, applied with a soft drybrush. Then they'll be sealed, and I'll add some washes of acrylic to deepen the recessed areas.
If anyone has historical info on this piece, I'd love to hear it!
