    Yeah I noticed that when I got mine. Which makes it all the more a shame that there isn't an announcement about cartoon based version.

    Please! Can you take a pic of Elita and her price tag! Toys R us costs way too much but they price match. My walmart will not be getting these if the trend continues.

    Does it work without damaging them, because I am all for the pink feet.

    It does work quite well. Just use a 80 ~ 90 % rubbing alcohol or something similar, let it soak for a while, then scrub it with a toothbrush. It may take two or three soak & scrubs, but they come out looking just like those early pics of the pink feet. I believe the person I saw who did it said it took 2 soakings, and their pictures looked good & clean.

    Wish I could remember where it was... Pretty sure it was either in the radicons section or the Potp appreciation thread. Hope that helps

    Walmart sells bottles of 91% alcohol for roughly $1 US, that's what I use.

    Really? They’re both out of stock.. I’ve kept windows open to monitor them and I’ve never seen the pop up as actually being in stock.

    ahh I feel bad for not posting when I noticed this morning then. I saw the report about the 15% off and was browsing the (mostly sold out) TR listings and noticed they were there and in stock. Hopefully the re-up soon?

    Also, I picked up Elita-1 on impulse when I saw it next to Hun-grrr at Target but I'm not that into her so was planning on returning it. If anyone wants one in trade (or for retail cost and shipping) just let me know.

    I'd assume both the peg on the underside and the ratchet right? But aren't they both pinned?

    I'm going to have to do that when I find Hun-gurr. Does anyone have a tip about how to paint the face white? I tried that on Slag's legs and it didn't turn out so hot (luckily the stripped silver looks fine).

    White is notoriously hard to get right. You have to undercoat it with a grey or a tan first. White straight on parts leads to massive bleed through of color. Red and yellow both have the same issue.

    Saturate the rest of the country? Yeah... sure... :rolleyes2 

    We are sitting on a mountain of unsold Voyager SS toys in the Midwest. Looks like that crappy figure is going to neuter my chances of ever finding a Hun-grrr/Elita-1 on a casual shopping trip! :( 

    It's like TLK Wave 1 all over again... :eek:
