  1. NECA made those great 7" Hicks and Hudson figures. Maybe it's time to learn about hydroshrink?
  2. I had such hopes for those figures, but the face sculpts are horrific. Power loader looks cool though.

    1/55's revisited

    Yes. I have a takatoku gbp set that fits on my bandai vf1j.
  4. The stunt fight budget must be running low, or more likely they're hoarding it for next episode.
  5. I'm a museum professional. I can tell you that no matter what, all plastics are going to degrade eventually. Sorry to say, but you can't stop it from happening. The question is how long will it take and what are you willing to do to retard the process? Does anyone have any original star wars figures that are starting to feel sticky? That's the plastic breaking down. If you want to get crazy, you can put everything into a nitrogen atmosphere, but I doubt anyone is willing to go that far Otherwise, its what was posted, keep your stuff out of direct light, extreme humidity or heat, and above all, try to limit fluctuations between temperatures. Most materials are fine, even in non-ideal conditions, as long as the temp/humidity is stable. When you have a lot of fluctuations, the materials expand and contact rapidly, which leads to accelerated deterioration. I know I'm not saying anything new, but even the best museums can only do so much to slow down what will happen to all plastics eventually. Enjoy your toys and models! They won't be around forever, but neither will we!
  6. I still suspect that HG is nothing more than a tax write off at this point, in which case the convention stuff is to keep up appearances, but who really knows.
  7. I know shapeways has specific tolerance crieria for wsf. I'd be happy to have one without the vent holes or whatever they are, if those are an issue.
  8. Has anyone ever put a replacement armor parts missile pylon on shapeways? You can count me as a member of the broken pylon club, so I'm just curious.
  9. It's true. If it was a work for hire, then he doesn't have a leg to stand on.

    Maybe Bandai doesn't actually have the license for Max and Milia and they have to use the alternate color scheme to get around it? Ok, I'm just playing...
  11. Has anyone taken off the light blue accents using rubbing alcohol?
