That would be the easiest, just go to the person who is dumping them and talk to him or slip him some cash, for all you know you might get yourself a regular hook up.

That would be good, but unfortunately the employees there are really strict.

i would be doing some dumpster diving!

more tips...

12. if your super glue brush (the brushable kind) gets gunked up and dried up, dip it in some goof off for a few minutes, then rinse under hot water.
13. photoscape is free...
14. wipe from front to back...
15. usb thumb drives are good for stamping a brick pattern in foam board
16. stitch witch can be used to easily hem real cloth items (capes, coats etc...) no sewing required!
17. soaking a fig in clorox bathroom cleaner or mean green works great in removing mold release, dont have to scrub so much!

1. Wet sanding a figure can greatly improve a paint job,
2. Coating foamy board in many watered down layers of white glue will make it much more plastic like and rigid making it perfect for sword and knife blades,
3. Hot glue can be sculpted partially bye using an ice cube to form it,
You'll be lucky if you're one of the few to find someone who can tolerate you.

It's taking the finest grit sand paper that is produced, dipping it in water(and I spray a little water on the surface first sometimes to), and then carfully and gently sanding the surface of the paint. It even works on glossy paints just check out my batmobile to see how well it works :)

I agree, I use 600 grit wet and dry paper, can be used either wet or dry but it seems to gain magical powers while wet, gets rid of all the bits standard sand paper doesn't and leaves a super smooth finish.

Here's the plan;
We need wire cutters, TNT, and night vision goggles. Also, we have to bring therapist as He has huge biceps and can deal with any hench security guards. We bring darththomas as he can organize the celebration party (aparently he parties harder than Charlie sheen so what the hell). We need a getaway car, im thinking a Ferrari so we have to invite shapp. Good plan yes?
