Customizing Tips and Tricks / Re: spray paint question

Paint doesn't really work that way...  The paint's adhesion to plastics varies based on the type of paint and things, but it doesn't really improve with heat.  Curing times can improve so long as there's no humidity.

Paints bond to different plastics in different ways as well.  Also different paints bond in different ways.  Enamels compared to acrylics, primers to regular paints, etc.

Added some Ollies Vehicle 2-Packs that included the "rare" Jedi Speeder!  Also included a couple K-Mart Vintage Packs from the past couple years as well.

I've had every intention of making a "modern" Mongo Beefhead. :)  It's one of those bucketlist customs I've wanted to do and just never bothered with.  It was such a weird idea and design though, and I can see the modern bits working so well together too. 

This is inspiring me.  Doubt I get off my ass to do it, but it's inspiring me.

I think that is it and what I was kinda trying to say.  Hasbro at one point said (iirc) they've been told to start refocusing, no?   Rebels is falling at a bad time I think and that's all.

Plus Hasbro had said "Lots of OT" in the build-up to the new movies at one point, no?  Like they want that as the focus going in...  Rebels is hitting at a weird time.  I agree Jeff, it seems like the line may be somewhat limited.  So far there hasn't been much beyond the mains to get excited about anyway but it's only a couple episodes in.

I wonder if the show may be somewhat short-lived and that's the plan all along?  Not a huge expansive show like TCW was.

This is the only one we'd heard about...  I thought it weird at the time, but was trusted source (same one that told us about Fett/Carbo Han for SDCC).  I'm pleased, but I figured (at the time) they'd not update TSC Boussh Leia. 

Then they did Ceremony Luke and I knew anything was on the table. :P

I've always hated that hand on the Saga Leia Boussh, or I'd agree.  She doesn't do much of course, but at the same time there's few Leia looks that are as cool, so I'm glad they re-did her.  BTW we'd been hinting since last year that there was a new Leia coming...  this is she.  I didn't expect a 6" one too, but this is one that has been on Hasbro's radar to improve (the hand bugged them too) for well over a year. ;)

So how can you be that rich and NOT afford the tea that flushes your system?  WTF?

The Jawas look great, I just find their height kind of odd.  I'm definitely a Mosep and Han Carbo guy though, with Leia a close 3rd...  The Jawas come in 4th, and 3PO isn't even on the radar at this point. :(

The Jawas featuring two updated blaster (POTF2 and the accurate ion blaster), and the little POTF2 pistols got updated too, I like those kinds of touches.  Much like Ree Yees getting updated POTF2 blasters.

I still had the deer in headlights look while taking the selfie.   :-\

It was freakishly cool standing there.  I just really felt almost a little emotional, haha.  :'( Sad but true.  :-[

Not one anywhere near me, not even really reasonable driving distance...

Once Clones/Stormtroopers happen though, I'll drive I think. :)

I just compared my 3PO to the pic Jeff, and I see nothing new on them off-hand...  The paint is a tad different but that's about it, and not unexpected on a proto.

I'd say he's definitely the forgettable figure.

Can't wait for a couple Han's...  Gantry, thaw, Skiff fighting, etc.

I want to custom up that block to light up too.  Looks difficult, but doable.

Wonder how many sold?  If it's like most Target exclusives it won't be too hard to find, but that's still pretty impressive I think.

Those Jawas looked huge in the pics, haha.  I'm still confused on those.

I've wanted a new Han Carbo and Mosep for eons, so I'm giddy.

I'm guessing by the photos I've seen from Jeff so far that the 3PO is a Build-A-Droid one.  It's definitely looking to use that type of plastic, which usually means articulation.  Otherwise I think it'd be chromed.
