Newest batch of gets

Posted in Action Figure Chatter

Nothing amazing, but I've been wanting most of these figs. Not a bad deal at roughly $12 each.

If I still reviewed stuff I'd be going on and on about the annoyances in the Star Wars figures

Anyone have an easy way to take the white stuff off of Vision? Any suggestions for what to make with Batroc?

For Vision, some have used nail polish remover, and other use acetone, I personally use Lacquer Thinner. Whatever way, I pour some in an empty paint jar, dip a q-tip in it, then start taking off the paint in one section. You have to roll the tip of the q-tip between strokes or you will essentially be dragging little gobs of paint and thinner across. You will go through many q-tips because all of the paint you are taking off will, hopefully, be on the tip.

RIGHT after you finish up a part, I highly recommend taking a rag and wiping the excess solvent off of the surface! Otherwise it will settle and you will have to clean it up again! Or worse, you could put the figure out of commission- forever gummy and tacky!

Just a bit of info! Good luck!

*DISCLAIMER*

The fumes of the solvents above ARE toxic! Wear something over your face and perform the wiping in a well ventilated environment.

Lel I should have been more specific

I know how to remove the paint, I've just never done it to a whole clear figure before. I really don't want to make the figure cloudy with the acetone since I've seen it happen to other clear parts, was wondering if there was a less harsh alternative

I totally understand the concern, with the cloudy look and such. I definitely think it's all in the wiping technique. Lacquer thinner will take it right off. It is like using magic eraser whereas acetone is like cleaning with a dirty rag. You can wipe and it will pick everything up. Acetone will smear. I clean my airbrush with it all the time. I have used it multiple times to take paint off.
