I'm wishing I was. :)

Why'd Pitt move Jordan Staal who, arguably, was a key component after '09?  Same dealio.  Sucks, but that's the cap for ya ultimately, especially when you have that "core" you don't want to break up.  :-\

Wv8 remnants came in from EE today...  Thank god I'm done (for now).

Haven't even opened the box.  :-[

It's very hard to tell but they are there.  Very hidden.

I liked it, and I'm not a 6" collector.  I think if I were to delve into it in a small fashion, maybe just soldiers, I'd be a happy camper...  Not saying I will, but man I will say I liked this figure.

Lemme just say that I didn't mention it much, but the little pamphlet it has on the evolution of the troopers is fun.  It's cheap, kind of lame to some I suppose, but I liked it.  A neat little bonus I felt.

Gripes were few, for me...  I thought it's a solid figure, and a solid way to kick off the line sort of.  It's an awesome box too.  Wish these boxes were more common in the line overall.

And like that, sold out...  Quad Eyes is out too (sand deco), so it looks like I'm waiting for new stock on both.

Got my first Laurel, but my 2nd will have to be on the back burner I suppose.  :-\

Glad Acid Rain's popular.  Glad people are seeing what quality toys they are, but damn I was gonna buy stuff next month.  >:(

Also see new figures...  Robotic soldiers, and a female soldier of some type from a new "squad"?  Hmmm

Definitely interested in some of the Marauder figures...  not a ton, just a little group I think.  Loved how they ultimately turned out.

Thanks for the breakdown Eric...  the knee issue I'd not heard of yet.  Hmmm

Yeah I doubt I quit completely...  Like I said, customizing would overtake collecting as my primary gig, and I'd just enjoy making 5POA better or improving a vehicle.  I would definitely buy more acid rain I want without hesitating at the price though.

I didn't want Joe levels of articulation either Matt.  I don't like even the modern Joe articulation on Star Wars figs now.  I felt really that 2007 was the ideal levels and styles.  Some figures get less than others and some get more and for the most part it made sense.  I miss 2007 routinely as a collector.

At the same time though, hasbro had a deep pool then too.  Different era, less resculpts.

I can 100% attest that I wasn't haha.  I always wanted articulation. :)

I agree Matt.  I will custom up some but if there's not a quality line, it will have been a nice run but ending with a feelin that it sort of got pissed away at the end.  5poa won't cut it for anything but fodder to make better figures. 

At the same time, customs will be my collecting then, and I have tons of other fun things to spend on. :)

Bittersweet ending though if it pans out that way.  Still, I think it may live on even as exclusives maybe.  I have a little hope left.

I compared to my Hot Toys Hicks...  It's pretty decent.  For a small company I think it's pretty good.  Not a great likeness of the actor per se, but neither is Hasbros latest Han the best Ford likeness.

The colors are off and stuff but that can change.  The armor looks pretty on the mark to me even compared to the HT Hicks 12" fig.  It's a prototype too and miles superior to their last humans (WW2 Germans).  I didn't think they were doing any figs from the movies tho even if in the game as cameos.

Got mine too and second that emotion.

The block was worth the purchase, dare I say.

I like the Jawas a LOT more than I thot I would. 

Hans sculpt isn't the best ever but it is a good update and happy to put this one to bed.

Saved my extra to open last.  I think I will pick up two more Hans for some custom purposes too.

Aliens has me slightly interested but only because I'm starved for that stuff.  However, Hiya Toys is putting out figures that are basically Aliens, under the Aliens: Colonial Marines guise, and so far the Aliens themselves are everything you'd want in a SA line.

Not sure on the Marines, which are pushed to August for pre-orders.  The POwer Loader prototype is all kinds of amazing looking though.  :o

So to that end, I'd rather have an SA line and spend on that, but I do love all things Aliens and so I may still pick up the Funko guys.

Speak of the devil, they just released a new pic of Hicks...

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Re: Resin
« on: June 26, 2015, 01:57 PM »
Resin has to be cleaned really well before painting, and should definitely be primed first with automotive primer.  Otherwise it's no different than plastic.

Really plastic should be washed and dried thoroughly too, but resins usually have mold release agents on them that definitely need cleaned off.  But anything to be painted should be prepped first with a good cleaning since it'll have oils/residues off your hands that inhibit paint adhesion.
