Scorpion Character Profile - Updated by DAMartin   
Tuesday, February 19, 2019

In his former life, Scorpion enjoyed happiness with his wife and child - but that life was cut drastically short. He was destroyed by the unmerciful ninja, Sub-Zero, who was working for the Lin Kuei (a rare clan of ninja assassins).

He was reincarnated as a specter and granted, as many believe, the opportunity to avenge his destruction.

Will his thirst for revenge be quenched by the blood of his opponents? Or will he again be destroyed? This time in Mortal Kombat!...[See More]
Spinnerella Character Profile - Updated by DAMartin   
Tuesday, February 19, 2019

With the power to travel very fast across the ground, Spinnerella is very flighty and often confused as one would expect from somebody who travels as she does. She always spins round and round much like a powerful whirlwind. She is totally faithful to She-Ra and honest with everyone she meets. The Great Rebellion calls on Spinnerella to deliver important messages to their loyal friends. She has a spiral fringe skirt and long turquoise and lavender spirals which hang from her cuffs. When she whirls through Etheria these decorations whip around to knock down all who come near!...[See More]

This video is a bit longer then the others as I do articulation comparisons with other toy lines, but it is well worth the watch.

Painting hair of female Marvel Legends figures Topic - Added by isdbear   
Sunday, February 17, 2019

Hello,

I wanted to check with those who have experience painting the hair of female marvel legends figures. I am working on a custom with hair that has a few strands which hang down in the front (formerly a Dagger figure). I was planning to cut the hair back a bit and adjust the style so that the paint will not crack if the head is turned to the sides. Then I decided to consult the forum to see if anyone has experience with painting hair like this. Will the paint crack if the hair is not adjusted so as to avoid the shoulders?...[See More]

Boil and Pop Help Topic - Added by isdbear   
Saturday, February 16, 2019

Hello,

I am fairly new to customizing figures, so I thought I would consult the experts. I am working on a custom Marvel Legends figure that involves using the boil and pop method to combine parts from two different figures as well as painting and sculpting parts with Aves apoxie. I am using Tamiya paints. Can I paint the pieces, do the sculpting work, and seal the pieces with Modpodge before using the boil and pop method to combine them with the Torso? Or will that mess up the paint (and potentially the apoxie)? I had hoped to do painting and sculpting first before combining the pieces because I thought it would make the painting part easier. I have also noticed joints get looser when I did boil and pop before, is this common, and is there a fix for it? I had considered putting a little Modpodge on the connectors to make them tighter.

I was also curious if anyone had experience with painting and then applying Aves apoxie over paint? I was looking at painting flesh tones on the figure, applying apoxie next, then sanding and painting the apoxie. But in the customs I have made before, I did the apoxie before painting, so I wanted to be sure it should hold to the paint alright. Worst case, I paint everything but the upper torso and then attach the other parts and paint and sculpt the upper torso.

Any help you can offer would be appreciated.

Thanks....[See More]

•I don't recommend Tamiya for beginners. It's an alcohol based acrylic so it dries fast, making it tough to handpaint and get coverage unless you thin it just right. It's better for airbrushing. I recommend Formula P3 or Testors instead (water based acrylics).

•Why can't you just sand or scrape away old paint before sculpting on an area?

•I usually sculpt, then paint, then assemble a figure, but there are always exceptions, this isn't an exact science. Boil water and use a pipette to flood holes with hot water to soften up the plastic. Drain the water and pop the arm/leg/head/whatever back on as usual. The more you do this stuff the more techniques you come up with, how to hold things so they don't get damaged, keep your hands clean, keep dust out of your paint, etc. ...

Thanks for the suggestions. I had the feeling that was the case with boiling prepainted/sculpted pieces.

Monday, February 18, 2019
Another alternative to boiling water is using a hair dryer to heat up the pieces. I use an OLD, compact hair dryer which I've rigged up on its side, usually haven't had any problems with it messing up the paint. though when I have it's usually been because I was rushing to get a figure assembled and the paint didn't have adequate time to dry. Now, I'll basically give, at minimum, 30 minutes between coats, but at least 24 hours for the paint to properly dry once I've finished. I don't do much sculpting, and haven't run into any issues with the little I've done. Regardless, I always try to be careful assembling (and sometimes disassembling) painted parts to avoid accidentally damaging my work.
