Recently a dude I know gave me a box of busted toys he's amassed over the years and I'm slowly fixing up some of them. In the box there were two busted threea figures I think look pretty neat but one has had a wrist peg snapped off in the socket and then crudely dug out leaving the socket way to big for a new wrist peg to fit into. Does anybody have any advice on how to tighten up the socket so a new wrist peg will stay in it without falling out?
>>5307926 This is your friend, you can either put it into the socket itself, or coat the peg. Let it dry for 24 hours and it will add a clear layer to the figure, Can scrape it off with a knife, or add more if it's not stiff enough. I use it for loose joints mainly but when I originally bought the white MoMo girl her peg was too thin to stick properly so I just put two coats in the socket painting it on with a cotton swab.
>>5307925 There's quality control issues all over from joints to glue marks , to missing sword handles , or extra hands , etc . The shoulder joints that swing forward and backward are loose , the skirt armor are floppy, some ankles are extreme loose . Weapons missing parts , big cannon does not lock in place with extended or collapsed.
After shipping it's no longer $100 , it's more like $145.
But it does look very good when you display it on the stand . If you can get it for $100 , go for it .
Manchild here. About just under two months ago I endeavoured to inventory my massive lego collection from when I was 14-17 and open a bricklink store. Since it was a pretty serious collection containing rare and unique parts that have doubtless appreciated in value, I figured selling it in bulk would be foolish. Anyway in the interval I find my hands have moved from a certain semetic gesticulation to the assembly of small MOCs I hide in various corners of my room. That's right, much to my chagrin and owing to copious levels of autism, I find myself right back in the thick... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
you're in for a surprise when you try to sell those older special bricks: they have little collector value on their own. the best way to get the most value, is to download the old imstructioms and reconstitute the original kit as best you can. Even thwn, the risk of getting sucked back into builder status is quite high.
>>5307957 That really seems to depend. In the case of some common components then yes, it is probably more equitable to put them into "used" sets. However my strategy was to separate the wheat from the chaffe and then sell the chaffe in bulk. Generally those autists will not care about a set unless it is MISB.
It's surprising that the Monster Girls haven't received figures in some form, I can see them being very popular. Hell I'd be down for grabbing the Spider chick and the Lamia just because there really aren't any other options for either type for figure in a 5-6"ish scale.
Hasbro and Mattel are two of the largest toy companies in America (and possibly in the world as well). Which company do you think is better and why? I can't really say, as my only experience with Mattel was their old Food Fighters figures...
Both have their faults but at least hasbro has properties that for the most part actual move.
Meanwhile mattel lives off monster high barbie and hot wheels. Most of their other lines don't really do much. Their boys toys are basically just hot wheels.
For collectors like us that aren't hot wheels fags I'd say both are 5/10 companies. There are better ways to get better DC and marvel toys for the most part, then tfs usually (sometimes kinda) are better by takara so their offerings are better to go for (kinda).
>>5307291 I see hasbro making more fun toys for kids and giving their adult fans what they kinda want.
Where mattel forces you to subscribe to a membership if want there he-man/DC stuff and their QC is horrible (for example 66' batman line). Also they release items that are really overpriced like the bck2thefurture hoverboard and the batmoblie that costed a ton of money for hollow plastic

Sign ups run until December 4th. I'll try to have everyone paired up by December 6th.
Like last year, I'm going to have everyone fill out a Google form so I can collect the information easily.
Also, if you have some kits in your backlog that you are willing to part with feel free to email me a list and estimated values.
***Disclaimer*** If you want to enter with stuff in your backlog, that's fine, but please be aware I may not be able to pair you with someone who wants something you have to give away. If... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
