Motoko (3 months ago) #38008175Cold-casting became a unreliable method for figure production like two decades ago, but nothing beats polystone when it comes to detail. I don't care what people say, it brought much more detail than anything used today~
I just finished repairing an old polystone figure and it really is an exemplary material in spite of how brittle it is. Very very fine details that PVC just can't capture.

Moro (3 months ago) #38007911I see, that's quite a shame. Do you think it was bad construction that caused the defect, or a simple casualty of the materials used?

Moro (3 months ago) #38007426This figure was commonly defective?Motoko (3 months ago) #38007878You bet they are~ I received two factory pulled cases from a original distributor here in Cali, and both were separated at the top of the stand. The box is also designed to flap to reveal ownership or used condition. They're extremely rare if not impossible to find in mint condition without being treated or stored properly... Mine were sealed, and I'm probably the only one besides the owner to have touched & opened them, so I know for a fact they're commonly defective~

Motoko (3 months ago) #38007316imgur.com/a/3yG... Most of them are cold-cast defective out of the box, so one will have to find someone who's going to treat the polystone & restore them~
