Any body got any ideas on how to remove the red paint/pen of this EE head? I have tried nail varnish remover but it has not budged it.

i would of suggested nail varnish remover ,maybe a stronger solvent like glue remover , just be careful of the eyes or cover eyes in bluetack and put in a bag with oven cleaner ,but that will remove the hair too ,but
as he is he looks like he has had a beating
unfortunately for him!

should do, so the eyebrows will go too ! and will remove the hair and if your not careful eye colour paint ,
you could always take the eyes out by splitting the head across the seam , there is a how to on another forum I think its on action man hq forum I see if someone else can post the link as I dont have it ,I believe they used oven cleaner to remove the hair and he didn't cover the eyes with blue tack and the paint came off ,bit drastic ,I might try another solvent like tippex thinners or glue remover first if you only want to get the paint off ! I don't want to give you duff info so i'll get someone else to confirm it !
trouble is its red and anything with red pigment tends to stain ,also depends on what type of paint it tis

It all sounds like sound advice given by Jay, I believe some people also leave the heads in direct sunlight after treatment, but I am sure sparklebudgie could share more tips on this question too mate  cheers
