    Hm.

    Perhaps I'll track down a TOG Beastman.

    One more figure won't hurt.

    He's great if you don't have the original beast man release. He's basically a stealth fan favorite release with extra gear.

    That's the same video they put on Instagram. It's basically the wave 2 mini comic.

    Yay. I managed to get a Splinter. I'm a little surprised it's still available by the time I got to it, though. Still need Sla'ker and that damn Stranger things set...

    I got a Faker recently and the hand is super deformed. I am sure I could fix it with hot water but am a little worried that the fingers are small they’d just come off. Has anyone done this already? It’s not so horrible, I could live with it.

    They’re fairly pliable, run them under some hot water, hold them in place then run them under cold and you should be good to go.

    Thanks. I just tried it. To my surprise, I didn't even have to bend the fingers. When they were in the hot water for 30-40 seconds and I pulled them out, the fingers had already splayed out naturally. I ran them under cold water and have them sitting in ice water to be sure.

    For a second there I thought your Faker spent a little too much time alone..

    See I was much more wholesome and just thought that He-Man had crushed his hand.

    I hit Target this morning and this was there:
    20240426_101815.jpg

    the Mattel store and it was MOTU madness! I grabbed a TOG Moss Man, CC Mer-Man and Stratos, someone tried to grab the Mer-Man out of my hands not even out of malice, just the mad blitz at MOTU. They still had some Moss Man and Krang when I left, that was great to see.
    20240426_170756.jpg

    Then, when I hit Ross nearby...
    20240426_135327.jpg

    It's finally happening! They're unpunched, so probably an e-tailer's rather than Target or Walmart's. I left them for someone else to enjoy since I have 'em all.

    Then when I got home, Sla'ker shipped.

    Glad you did this, that's great! You've entered a larger world.

    It's a thermoset plastic, so if you're hitting it with water around 180f (don't go over 190 especially with PVC parts), it'll heat up just enough to be pliant which will reset it back to its original molded shape on its own. The cold water isn't really necessary unless the part is likely to droop while warm, like a lot of the GI Joe Classified accessories lately. You can do it over and over, it won't hurt the part to reset it with heat so long as it's under boiling.
