Is anyone willing to share some knowledge about fabrics to a newb? in Custom Workstation by jondubont

I want to make a trenchcoat for ml punisher (urban legends) since I lost it. Does anyone have a simple fabric recommendation for something like that? I've also read that you should buy fabrics in person, but is there a fabric I can get online that is suitable for making this trench coat that will look natural?...[See More]

You need fabric with threads that are the right size for whatever scale you're working with, that's why it's better to check fabric in person and take the figure with you.

For example, you wouldn't use a wool sweater or yarn to make a shirt for a 4 inch figure, it's way too thick. Something fine, like a pillowcase, would work better.

Find out what thread count or weight (4oz fabric, 6oz fabric, etc.) your t-shirt is. Now put that on the figure and decide if it's too thick, or too thin. Now you have a baseline, now you know whether you need a high/lower thread count than the tshirt, and you can continue the search from there. ...

When I do clothing, I stopped using fabric some time ago now. What I use instead is the rubber from one of those $2 kids play ball of a heavy duty balloon. This looks more like the clothing that comes on action figure now. The only downside is that I have not been able to figure out how to make removable clothing.

I have these action figures I can't identify. It's my profile picture because I can't figure out how to put a picture in. A fireman, A solider, and the middle one I'm not sure what he is. I've had these since I was a kid (early 90's). There's no markings of maker or anything. Any help would be appreciated!...[See More]

This thread is for keeping track of all us good traders here at the Realm.

After you complete a trade with someone, hop in and give them a "+1" followed by their EXACT username. Feel free to elaborate on the trade and write them a dirty haiku while you're at it.

Don't hesitate to report bad traders. We need to know about this so we can prevent others from being burned. If you're not comfortable leaving negative feedback, you can send me a message, along with proof of the misconduct, and I'll list their name here.

Looking for Exosquad in Trading Post by TheRubicon   
Updated Saturday, October 13, 2018
   [Edit]
Hey Realmers,
I'm trying to fulfill a childhood void and want to collect Exosquad toys. I'm looking for pilot figures, e-frames, and jump troops. I'm not looking for in-the-box/sealed condition. Incomplete is fine as long as it's not too broken, etc. please send pictures of what you've got. I don't have much to trade, but i'm willing to pay money via paypal. please again note that i'm not interested in "new in the box" condition. i'm collecting these for my pleasure and some custom work.

Thanks a bunch!

Also! G.I. Joe Mechs as well or similar stuff I can kit bash with!

****Update: Also looking for discarded bits of sci-fi models and dios. Whatever can be stuffed in a box and mailed that I could use to add texture and complexity. Thanks...[See More]

VHT paint sticky on figure in Custom Workstation by Thunderstrike14   
Thursday, October 18, 2018
   [Edit]
Some people on here suggested that I should use VHT flat white when painting a figure flat white to prevent the paint from showing brush Strokes but when I tried it on my Dc Universe Manhunter some of the parts came out sticky or tacky so I was wondering if anyone could tell me what I'm doing wrong....[See More]

Some plastics react badly to the chemicals in spray paint, usually softer plastics.

VHT makes different types of spray paint, they also make spray dye (that's what I use), so you'll have to do some trial and error to see what the problem is.
How To Cast Rubber Coats and Capes in Custom Workstation by Trustfulguy9100   
Monday, November 5, 2018
   [Edit]
I'm looking for a SAVIOR here! Can anyone find a picture tutorial, video or anything that can help me cast a coat or cape for figures. I'm looking to cast rubber coats/capes. I have what I need to cast molds. But what is a good material to actual cast with? I thought about using the rubber mold material itself, but its not paintable. I thought about silicon, but its not paintable. I thought about filling with glue and letting it dry out, or even hot glue, but I've heard that those materials shrink as moisture dries out of it. So any ideas of how i can duplicate capes and coats in a paintable rubber?

similar to marvel universe or legends coats and capes?

For example: Marvel Universe Gambit or Nick Fury coat, or Marvel Universe Dr. Doom cap...[See More]

I hope this all makes sense...

You can use EcoFlex 00-50. It's a cast you can pour into a silicone mold, like OOMOO 30.

WOW! Thank you so much for that information! I will likely be placing an order for something tonight! So the EcoFlex and Dragon Skin are all paintable? I know pigments can be used, but I like to airbrush shading in my paint jobs. If these are paintable, I'd love to get some and try it out.

Not sure if you know, but is there a short shelf life for these once opened. I've heard that some Smooth-On products, once opened, have limited shelf life. is that true in your experience? ...
Can't find it.... in Identify Help by Malonexus

So, I've been trying to find this toy for years, and now I'm curious if anyone can remember this...

It was around the mid 90's (possibly) and it was this futuristic looking motorcycle with wheels that split to become a "hover bike". It came with a little action figure with non-articulate arms, although I believe the legs could bend at the knees; the figure was a black guy with a crew cut about an inch and a half tall.

I remember getting this figure/vehicle combo toy around the time the first few Transformers: Beast Wars figures were out. There were other vehicles part of the set that did very similar things (car into a plane? kind of deal).

Help me Obi Wan Kenobis of the toy world. You guys are my only hope ...[See More]

Check where it says "Or Browse by Toy Series, Creator or Contest.", under the search fields.
http://www.figurerealm.com/customfigure?action=search

When you visit a Customizer's Profile, there's a "Become a Fan" link there
