    Just be careful as some nail polishes remover carries on eating the plastic even after you think you've wiped it off. It will eat through clear plastics and windscreens really quickly too.

    Isopropyl is the way to go for cleaning, but even then if you soak metal parts paint can strip and clear parts can dissolve. Perfect for removing paint apps, tampos and sticker residue.

    Don’t tempt me. Making an unplanned visit to our local one for another reason, now I’m going to be poorly disciplined and buy another copy of that awesome mold; I’ve lost count.

    Gotta laugh, a friend ordered five leaders from HoF trying to get Galvatron and he got 3 Primes and 2 Doubldealers. o_O

    It's a fantastic figure. Worth it at £40 but I, and I recall a few others, have been holding out for a sale given the unlimited stock situation.

    Today's #deskbot is probably the rarest one in my collection. BotCon 2012 Spinister. I think only 5000 were made? He served as my Scavenger Spinister until Siege and now lives with the my Movie cons, standing out a lot because of his ridiculous colours and I love him. 20210714_093413.jpg

    Short of going to a sowing supply store or a large market to find a ribbon, a place I found them for the whole Bandana look is on some woman's clothes (& occasionally mens) they have a ribbon on the inside of the shoulder to secure them to a coat hanger so they don't slip off.

    So have a romage in a charity shop for green tank tops or something and you may find one with a suitable green ribbon you can repurpose for Shattered Glass Soundwave. I just had a bunch of them laying around but they are every colour But Green unforunately. But they look pretty cool tied around an axe too & can also make a decent belt for an action figure. I guess you could also just get white ribbon and stain it green in a weak solution of green paint and water. I think ribbon works the best though as it has a very fine surface and won't slit or fray on you.

    I've been collecting little scraps like this for years with just that purpose in mind. But I do sometimes use them to make belts for general action figures to secure their accessories to them with too.
