Hi all,

I am a newbie here, but also have some good pointers, check my post on cleaning figures in the tips to beginners thread. I have a sizeable vintage figure collection and would love to learn how to recard my higher grade figures for personal display, or perhaps to sell, not as fakes of course. I recently purchased faithfully reproduced artwork of all the vintage cards and backs plus a bunch of customs,  I am employed with a company that has a screen printing/digital printing division and have access to state of the art printers etc.  Any information , tips, where to buy bubbles/blisters on the cheap would be greatly appreciated.

Wow, I've been looking for a forum like this for quite awhile, I have been collecting again for six months, although I had a good start as I had all of my childhood collection intact, Mainly started to upgrade and became addicted.  anyway.  I have discovered that letting your figures and soiled parts soak in a mega dose oxyclean and water works miracles, I dare say it will make a yellow figure a shade whiter, but its probably self deception on my part.   It will also remove ink, stage blood, and whatever else little whipper snappers tortured their figures with if you have the patience and want to scrub judiciously. I removed red stains from a land of the jawas playset base that soap and water would not touch.  Just this evening I soaked a survival kit backpack that was almost black with worn in grime, one that soap and water did nothing to, and it looks almost as good as new!  I forgot, it does wonders on soiled/stained cloaks as well, I have a royal guard that the colors were brought out amazingly.  GREAT STUFF.
WARNING: dont soak a rancor keeper, his belly will fill with water, also make sure to rinse with normal water a few times , or oxyclean residue will show up as dry flakes, they do brush off however.
