Sinister Six Spidey Disassembly in Action Figure Chatter by imatiasmb   
Tuesday, April 16, 2019
   [Edit]
Hello, I have zero experience about figure disassembly, and now I'm trying to do this to the Sinister Six Spidey figure. I checked out the 'basic joint disassembly custom tutorial' and I've tried to soak the figure in hot water to be able to remove the shoulder rods, but I couldn't do it, it's too stiff, it felt like I was going to break something. Do I need to put the figure on boiling water (I'm scared to damage the figure)? Has anyone worked on the same figure? Any advice?

Thanks...[See More]

Repairing a Dragon's Lair 3D figure in Action Figure Chatter by WarpWarp   
Sunday, March 31, 2019
   [Edit]
Hello,

I have a Mordroc figure from the 2001 line of Dragon's Lair 3D figures who's left arm has snapped clean off at the wrist.

It won't snap back into place, because a section of the peg on his arm has broken off inside the hole in his wrist.

I want to glue it in place, but I have two glues.

A plastic model cement that is specifically for joining polystyrene, and a super glue that can't be used with polystyrene.

As I don't know how to identify which plastic his wrist is made from, and I don't want to damage the figure further, can anybody offer suggestions?

Thanks,

WarpWarp...[See More]

Do you have pics? And have you thought about drilling what's left of the peg out of the wrist and replacing it?

Hadn't considered drilling it. Never done that before and would be concerned about causing more damage to the figure. I have some pics.

Acid Rain World AMM Prospector 1:18 scale - WOW in Action Figure Chatter by Stimulant   
Tuesday, February 19, 2019
   [Edit]
It's taken me a while to get around to reviewing it but here it is - the AMM Prospector. One word - WOW.

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.

NECA ARTICULATION in Action Figure Chatter by MrMonocle   
Tuesday, March 5, 2019
   [Edit]
This is a pretty simple topic, but I find it still relevant. I've been loving the NECA releases lately, specifically their Predator series, though this topic doesn't apply only to them.

Specifically, I have an issue with NECA's articulation, in that they will sculpt fantastic looking figures, give them all kinds of articulation, and then render it moot by covering the figure in rubber that is either very stiff or only partially flexible. Some of the best looking Preds like Scarface or Ahab might as well not have ball joint hips when you look at the heavy skirting they use. This issue is not so much the thickness of the rubber, but the flexibility.

I absolutely love the Movie TMNT figures Gamestop has, but while they're fantastically deta...[See More]

Mattel's WWE figures have the same problem, they tend to use stiff plastics for things like jackets and skirts which drop the articulation to zero. And they make them thick for some reason so they give off a playskool/homemade vibe. :/

The recent NXT series of figures (came out last month) have done a better job though. Thin flexible jackets that don't limit movement and are easier to remove and put on without a ton of stress on the joints.
