Are you bored with those boring, old, plastic action figures? I have the solution! Erasers! They can be used for many different things, including action figures, complete with cape! Let's take a look.

Step 1: What You Will Need

You will need:

1. Assorted pen cap erasers
2. A pen
3. Tape
4. Paper
5. Colored markers

Let's get started!

Step 2: Choosing a Hero

Choose your hero! Do you want a classic cape-and-spandex character, or a massive sumo hero, or a overly outdone Rambo? It's your choice! Just start by grabbing an eraser!

Remember - You don't have to make the examples here. Be creative! Make a spider legs out of pipe cleaner for a Doc. Oct. to fight your eraser spiderman, or a green goblin eraser for your superman eraser. It's up to you!

Step 3: Classic Superhero

To make a classic superhero, tape a piece of green-markered tape to the back of him/her for the cape. Make sure it is cut to size. Now draw a face!

Step 4: Sumo Wrestler

To make a sumo wrestler, roll a pencil grip in 3rds and set that aside. Draw a face on the eraser, and push the eraser down the hole of the pencil grip. Voila! A sumo!

Step 5: Rambo

Rambo is easy. Draw a face, add some ammo belts, and a pistol or M-16 on his side. There you go!

Step 6: Cool Dude

To make the cool dude, draw a guy with sunglasses and a mohawk.

Step 7: Finish

Now. I know this has been an easy instructable. The examples were just to get you started, so post some pics when you comment of YOUR hero eraser!

See ya!
