I'm looking for rubber bands (small, thick ones) for wrist and ankle accessories for my JLU customs. Is there a one stop shop online that has these in a variety of colors?

Honestly, the best bet is going to be an office supply place. I get mine from Office Depot as they have them in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Although I will point out, rubber bands will take primer and paint just like plastic. I've had some on customs for years and never had an issue with cracking or breaking.

Guess I'm just checkingthe wrong places. most office supply shops I've checked have the token box of generic rubber bands.

For extra protection when using rubber bands, I brush on some superglue to "seal" them. It also acts to help hide the place where you cut/glue the figure, so it's a little less obvious
