Collector's Tips / carded figures on the ceiling???
« on: May 22, 2006, 03:21 AM »
OK, I know this might sound a little crazy, but I'm running out of room.  I only collect the 4inch figures on cards.  I have them pushpinned to the walls of a room in rows of 10 from ceiling to floor.  My problem is that I only have room for about 80 more before all 4 walls are covered.  I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for affixes them to the ceiling without damaging the cards at all.  The only think i can think of is using star cases and then affixes them.  That would be pretty easy, but I hate to buy star cases.  I don't like them and don't have any of my other figures in them.  A pushpin works fine if hanging the figures normally, but on the ceiling I need some sort of support on the bottom of the card too.  Anyone tried this or accomplished it?  Thanks in advance.  I'm just trying to find an alternative to using a pushpin on all 4 sides of the figure.  It would be awesome to use velcro somehow.  You could fasten a velcro strip firmly to the ceiling and then a strip on the back of the card.  You guys know that clear goo that holds tags and stuff on boxes, but when you remove them the clear goo balls up and doesn't damage anything?  Can you buy that and apply it to card backs? 

Collector's Tips / removing stickers from card/bubble
« on: January 29, 2006, 10:41 AM »
I had 2 questions that I can't seem to find answers for anywhere else.  The first is how to remove some price stickers from the cardboard (and in one or 2 cases from the actual bubble) and remove the sticky residue safely.  The second is a little different.  I sometimes have to purchase a figure from R2-DToys because I can't find it here.  Usually it comes with a foreign "sticker" on the back and on the bottom of the bubble.  And usually it just peals right off, no tearing or anything.  I have one that seems to have gotten really gooey though on the bottom of the bubble on a clone wars figure.  Any type of solvent to get this stuff off without dissolving the damn bubble??  Thanks!

Original Trilogy Collection / all vintage figs into VOTC?? :)
« on: January 28, 2006, 12:48 PM »
Just curious if anyone else out there thinks Hasbro might be slowly remaking all the carded vintage figures into VOTC figures.  It seems like it would be doable since the contract has been extended so long.  You figure if they do like 10 to 12 figures a year it would only take ~10 years.  My completely unaccurate count comes up with 98 total vintage figures (not counting recards of the same figure for each movie, unless the figure was different somehow, i.e. 1 vader, not 3, etc).

We already have 12, so that knocks us down to 86.  There are 5 more announced for this year (so far).  That makes 81 to go!  Perhaps they are deciding which cards to put each figure on to make it roughly the same number of figures per original trilogy movie...

If this isn't true (and I'm just totally guessing here).  Maybe they should consider doing it for use collectors!  Wouldn't it rock to have every vintage figure redone and carded VOTC?  Someone with more pull than me should bring this idea up with Hasbro!!  Hint, Hint..
