Well,.. let’s get them back then! I’ve been outta the hobby for years,..life stuff,mild midlife crisis😂 I was able to obtain the planet green valley figures. I dismantled one yesterday. I should have moldmaker by this weekend. I learned a lot from my casting trail&errors,..mostly errors😂 but I still know how to copy,and cast details onto other parts. I’ll post some pics this weekend if I have time. I’m doing an engine replacement atm,so,...we’ll see. I never stopped buying stuff! I’m up to date with the ML figures,and all of the 4” fortnite figures which are my favorite right now.

We desperately need painted heads for JoyToy figures.

Here! I managed to get another job a few weeks ago. Contra, I lost my job about a month ago due to the virus with no hope of getting rehired. I find another job a few weeks ago, it's not the best and only pays a fraction of what I was making, but it's something I suppose. Glad to see you back Contra!

Come move to Florida Bob!! You can come work with me!! Be a sales associate,..gravy gig. Sit in the air conditioning and show people tires,and tell them what’s wrong with their cars. I’ll be I. The back breaking shit!😂 I’ve taken HUGE steps backwards!! I’m back to turning wrenches,but it’s not a bad gig. Low stress,..don’t have to deal with people. Make ok money,and have benefits...so I can’t complain

I bought my son a 1:18 RC truck off of the tool guy a couple years back. The plastic gear on the motor stripped out in a couple hours...got another for free,and it broke in 2 days😂 they’re pretty fancy. Might be good in dioramas or fixed and played with?

You could probably get replacement gears off ebay or Amazon...if you so wished to go that far with it.

What’s up fellas?

I see gijoes are at Walmart again. At least at mine they have the tags😂

merry Christmas and happy holidays! I’m still alive just working 6 days and sleeping the 7th. This covid thing just can’t get people to come to work and at the same time people keep wanting work on their shit boxes

Either I’ll die or eventually this stuff will pass and I’ll have my own life? Idk.

hows life treating y’all? Oh! And I found a white and grey Fortnite ninja guy at Ross for $5! my only toy related purchase in some time.😅

Glad to hear your alive, I’m still at the lab & shits been crazy there. (Non med guy)
Yup. Just working trying to pick myself up from the ground.

got a Jurassic world set for Christmas😂 has a little black kid! The wife said she got it in early November. I’ve never seen it before. It is cool to add it to my collection. I thought the figures where done?

I saw this. They also had the Hammond and Elle Sadler 2 pack with 2 raptors I believe. The John Hammond figure is a dead ringer for the bad guy in the movie the specialist with James woods and Stallone. I think I’m gona grab it

Let’s revive this thread a little bit. I have always swapped out heads on my figures. This is a Star Wars head from a number of years ago (I think the Joker squad?) And the body of course is the Lady Jaye GI Joe. In the past I’ve put a small amount of tape around the neck ball to keep the head in place and allow it to fit properly. This isn’t always a great fix so along comes this “As seen on TV” instant dental type glue. I simply squeezed out a ring around the ball piece and applied the uv light which hardens the liquid and the head fit perfectly as if they were made for one another. Thought I’d share in case others are struggling like no talent me was. What other Lazy boy custom tips can you think of and have used?

Behind a camera watching you!
My dad gave me one of those light glue things. He loved it for the trains, I had mixed results as I think I used it on the fighting 118th trooper that always came apart. ? But like super glue it’s no good if the glue gets to old.

I’ve been looking for a good Alice head sculpt for several years, I am awfully untalented when it comes to painting so I needed a custom that someone else had done. I finally found this sculpt from a Chinese source on eBay and will have to wait and see if I get a good product. I have a number of different bodies to choose from and even have two kukri knives to slay zombies with.
