Fair warning: This method will either clean the figure entirely, or dye any affected rubberized part entirely red. I lost a Warmaster that way. I decided to try the blackwashing with a Sharpie method and the figure's helmet and arms turned a shade of brick red (it was green before). That's why I recommend changing the hand sanitizer and changing the liquids frequently. I let my figure sit for the whole time period and the color in the liquid dyed the rubber parts after it came off of the figure. So fair warning. If you try this method you could seriously damage the figure, so please be careful and don't blame me if anything happens.

There are a couple things you can do, although the rubberized parts tent to be stained by Sharpies, not colored. For starters, disassemble the figure and place all of the colored parts in hand sanitizer for around 24 hours. This will begin the process of leeching off any of the easily removable color. You may want to stir it with a toothpick or stray or something every couple hours if the sanitizer is getting cloudy. Afterwords, remove it from the sanitizer and rinse the parts off (or clean them by hand with a wet cloth if you don't have a mesh sink drain cover to stop stuff from being lost). Then, place the parts in a disposable cup/bowl and entirely submerge them in about an inch of 70% Isopropyl Alcohol solution. Change the liquid for new every two hours, or whenever you see it getting cloudy. Let it sit for around 3ish days or until the part is clean. Running out of length, so let me type a second comment.
