464 KB,
I'm cleaning up and I've got too many toys and not enough space so I'm just cluttering up. I've made peace with myself to only keep my favorites so I can have a nice small shelf display. But I just find it hard to get rid of toys that I really like and they give me pennies for them, especially since in the country I'm in there aren't as many big fandoms as there were in the US. For the $5 I get for a SHFiguart I can't do it. I've tried selling internationally but it wasn't worth it after shipping.

Pic somewhat related.

Looks like you have four options.
1. Give them away
2. Throw them away
3. Pack them up and store them somewhere out of the way
4. Destroy them and film it for youtube

This. You really need to show all your toys at the same time?

Hey /toy/

Just before Christmas I purchased Super Dungeon Explore Forgotten King, fully intending to pain the miniatures.

Now I have the paints but the miniatures came pre-glued in to their bases which is a fuck nightmare for some of the characters that have capes and such.

I have tried heating the bases in boiling water to try and loosen the glue, but some of the models have very dainty ankles.

I have tried freezing the models to cause the glue to crack and fail, also no worky.

Any other advice from mini pros here?

get an extremely sharp/new razor blade and go to work

just make sure you are protected.

safety first!

razors are sharp as all hell and if the can cut through plastic
they will swim through flesh

Agreed, he is larger than I thought as well. The reviewer mentions something like for his size he may cost too much. I'm thinking maybe he hasn't ventured into 3rd party transformers yet.

Hey /biog/, have you ever discovered an emergent properties of your particular building style that you didn't expect?

I myself have come to discover I have a... height. I'm not sure how nor why, but all my main builds, no matter how different their construction, all seem to creep closer to each other's height the closer they are to completion. This would not be remarkable were they traditional sizes, but I'm fairly confident in the fact that my main builds are all unnaturally large compared to most, and all somehow the same height. It's like my...

For anyone with the graphic novel and chapter books, do they share the same plot or are they different? I'd rather get the graphic novel if they're the same but the chapter books if they're different, just because of personal lore conveyance preference.

I've been collecting Transformers for the past 10 years, ever since I was a kid. At my collection's peak I likely had over 400 figures, but I've been downsizing over the past year which feels like I've had a weight lifted from my shoulders. At this point I should be happy with my hobby, but I'm not. Last night before I went to bed I realized: I hate Transformers.

I still enjoy the toys and certain universes of fiction, but I fucking loathe the fanbase. I hate the rampant autism, the "with us or against us" obsessors who throw the word...

Yeah, quit. This is something you do for fun. If it's costing you money and time, and is making you miserable, get the heck out.

Downsize more, maybe keep 10 of your most favorite figures around, and take a break. You'll find something else with your new found time.

A less blog-like OP might have been good, but as fair as this topic goes, yeah I used to be in the same boat.

I used to be into Transformers, not for 10 whole years but for a fair few, and I pretty much dropped it when the new cgi cartoon started (though I haven't actually seen the show, that just happened to be the time when I decided to leave). I enjoyed the figures, the collecting and the lines, both Generations and Power Core Combiners were absolutely my shit I loved those figures.

But I could...

Webhallen have a lot of play-arts I think and SFBok usually have some stuff too plus there's sites coming and going all the time specializing in japanese stuff, but I'm sure that every store here overcharges because supply/demand, you might get lucky with some in-EU site in the UK or Germany like amazon or Ebay, some Amazon UK stores ship from Japan and if they are marked as "Free UK delivery" it's basically free to all of the EU.

A long while back (possibly 7 years ago) I went to visit family in Mexico during the Christmas season. There, I saw that Pepsi was introducing toys to any individual who brought in bottle caps from any Pepsi product...

Long story short, WHAT IS THE NAME OF THIS TOY LINE? for the life of me I cannot remember and it's bothering.

This is the only image I can find.

Purple, black work to me.

But one thing I will tell you that IS right, don't spray the sprue man for fucks sake, all those gate marks are gonna hurt.

Snip the parts out, sand them, THEN spray each part.

I did that and I regret it, paint coverage is harder to do for some parts anyway because other parts and sprues being in the way, bigger waste of paint.
