Customizing Tips and Tricks / Re: spray paint question
« Last post by RyanMan12 on Today at 01:49 PM »
I've never painted a blaster with spraypaint to say one way or another but it's possible the paint reacted poorly with the plastic.  Not all paints react well with all plastics, so you may want to consider that.

Also, weather conditions determine drying times on any paint but especially spraypaints like that.  I'd look into these factors a bit more maybe.  Without knowing the conditions, the plastic type, how the paint reacts, it's tough to tell...  It's good to test it on a plastic like you're working on first to see what happens for sure.

In humid conditions though it can take quite a long time to dry too, even if everything else is ideal.  Humidity can really make paint do funky things.

Most paints don't cure for at least 24 hours though.  Sanding might help but at that small a scale you'd want to be cautious.




I was  wondering if I boiled the blaster to heat then spray it, do you think the paint would bleed into the blaster,?

Got my two Snowspeeder Pilot Wedge figures from Amazon already. They arrived in "OK" condition - hopefully, I'll be able to find one in better shape at Target, TRU or WalMart at some point...

I could be wrong, but based on the placards in the hasbro display it appears that:

Clone Trooper Sergeant
TIE Fighter Pilot
Yoda

are all scheduled for December 2014.

From the pre-orders that popped up this weekend, it looks like the repack that will be joining them is...  ROTS Obi-Wan.

Ugh, forgot how much I dislike Rayna.  >:(

I hope they don't make Simmons out to be a bad guy now.

The PS4 has outsold the XB1 by a 2-to-1 margin to date (11 million v/s 5.5 million).  It's also the more powerful console spec-wise, which is why a lot of multi-platform games that run at 1080p on the PS4 run at 900p or lower on the XB1.  Some people say you can't tell the difference, while others say you can.

Not that I want to get into a console war here...   ;D

Thanks guys.  The boys have never really been big fans of the Nintendo 1st Party games (Mario Cart not withstanding). They have mainly stuck with the Lego games and Infinity over the last year or so.  Knowing that both are available on another platform makes me think I'm done with Nintendo.  Well that, getting confirmation that playing the old Wii games on the WiiU is a bit of a hassle, and that WiiU might be the nail in the coffin for them.  I think I'm going to go a different route when we upgrade.  Now it's just a matter of deciding whether to go Playstation or XBox.  I used to own a PS1 back in the day so I'm thinking about going back to that again.
