Koreantacos (1 year ago) #1415532I'm having a constant battle with the worst things my figures must face. Dust. I'm using that canned air stuff you use for computers, but it's a little pricey for me. Is there a cheaper method I could do?

Personally i use dry paintbrushes for all my figures, it takes a damn long time with the amount i have but it seems to be working for me.
Obviously you want soft brushes because you wouldn't want to risk scratching any of them, but if you get brushes that are soft with small heads (i bought a variety of sizes) you can pretty much reach anywhere on a figure and provided you're careful they won't break.

I've never risked it with canned air tbh, with figures being made of a pvc plastic for the most part i always have the fear that i'll make the pvc brittle by using it, or break something with the pressure from the air in the can.

Only just realised you posted this a year ago......... ah well XD
hopefully someone will read it and find it useful <3

abi (2 years ago) #1132689Hi, I was wondering if this article can be linked to this club: (mfc link), it seems this club tends to not be very active ^^'... I remember someone asking about keeping figures in the bathroom somewhere else,

Ha that was probs me :-/ and I got no answers so I asked here. I removed them as your probably right and the paint is really good on these so would be a shame to ruin them!
Shame as bathrooms need a bit of cheering up and if your a bath taker like me its nice to have things to look at ^_^ Too small for a cabinet though had to be shelves fixed to the wall.

Hi, I was wondering if this article can be linked to this club: (mfc link)Eddieteetree (2 years ago) #1053635Hey guys this and so many other clubs have very little activity. Is it because of the holidays?

Besides that does anyone keep pvc figs in their bathroom? Is humidity going to affect the paint do you think?
Well, it seems this club tends to not be very active ^^'... I remember someone asking about keeping figures in the bathroom somewhere else, the general answer was that it wasn't a good idea, as figures might get damaged by humidity, unless you keep them on a special case inside the bathroom... also thank you for the comment on my pic ;)

Hi just joined and thanks for this club ^_^
I received some figures and one has had the base glued. I posted in looking after... But no reply and it doesn't seem very active so hope it's ok to ask here. I really hate the bases and prefer them to stand on their feet where possible so is a problem for me x_x
No idea what type of glue it's almost impossible to see, they certainly did a good job but I cant think of any other reason it would be stuck? I tried using a credit card but nothing happened except the card bent lol. Any ideas please,

Do you have a photobucket or flickr account you can link to?

Hello... I have added most of my collection to the site and have added a few figures that were not already in the database. The only figures I have left are the loose ones that I purchased because I thought the sculpt was nice. Some of these characters I don't recognize! What would be the best way to add photos of these figures so that other members can help me identify them?

Thank you!
