Well, we'll see how far I get with it.  The head ball thing has me a little perplexed.  I may just throw them in the drawer and slam it and not look at them again until next year sometime in frustration as well

Oh, and one thing I did manage to do

Get a shot of the deleted scene from Empire when Lobot is asking ICMG for a pint of I-Cyborg Ripple Fudge.



Maybe doing that will motivate me to get to my other projects.  I'm just dreaming of the encounters Dodonna will have with his new friends.  Let's just say it involved a tube of Ben Gay, some empty pickle jars and a 24 pack of AA Batteries

Hope this helps.  What I did was cut off the VOTC Stormtrooper "ball", drill in a little hole at the base of the neck/shoulders, and insert a black piece of tube for the neck for a VOTC Han's head.  It worked out well, and Han now has an articulated neck.

Did you drill out the helmet too to fit Han's head?

No - I haven't done that.  I think I need a much better dremel for that.  The one I have sucks...

Request for Scott:

I'd like to see some Super Tiny Oranges in your next project. Will you work these babies in somehow?

EDIT: I just came back to find this link for something else and it now leads to an "inappropriate" web site. I've taken the link out of the post, but if you google "super tiny oranges" you might be able to find the correct site.

You've got to be kidding me.  I checked that out and it's nuts... how in the hell did you find that?

The third post down on the orange page is a guy asking in Chineese for help making an "Ice Cream Maker Guy"...  :-*

Just kidding. I found it on a site I read discussing design issues.

I broke down and bought a Han/Chewie Comic Pack and last night took off the blue paint.  I then discovered all of my paints were useless...so I can't paint the eyeholes/mouthpiece/ears black. 

When I took off the blue (I used Goof Off) the chest plate started getting tacky...any thoughts on how to correct?  I thought about a Matte sealant but again I don't have any more on hand :-\

It should dry up on its own Scott...  Goof-Off really is some nasty stuff, and starts to break the plastic down and cause it to melt some...  It's kind of like plastic welder that way.  I don't know if you've got one nearby but a Hobbytown USA should have some Tamiya on hand to cover your black paint needs...  The sealant you might find too there, though you should be able to get a matte one at the local WM too...

I'd give the figure a little time before jumping to seal it though.  It should dry on its own, however it may be a little rougher too now where it got the goof-off effect of stickyness on it.  :-\

give it a wash with soap and water, should take some of the tackiness off, and do that after you ever use goof off.
