  1. Seriously here, you DO know that there is a decent market on eBay for customized barbie type dolls, right? OOAK's? And there is a fair number of goth collectors always looking for something outstanding (with a bit of money to toss at it).
  2. Just watch the indoor/outdoor stuff, this kind of stuff sometimes has an infuriating shrinkage issue. You can have a pretty piece, get it clear-coated, and a few months to a year later this stuff has shrunken and drawn up off the piece in areas with recessed details, and it looks awful. Ask me how I found this one out. It took an acetone soak to get the crud off.
  3. Yes, a very hoppy birthday to you Froggy.
  4. Heh, Rex stands and salivates over these everytime we go through a toy department, he's almost as bad as me at the mini racks. I think they're kinda cool, personally, but I've always had a slight heretical streak.
  5. I'll add our "Yes, it would be nice to be able to put in for the days off early," list. Allen almost got told he wasn't gettting the day off for RCon after the big alien protest thing, too many people took off that Monday and they were going to try to make him give up the day off he was promised. He got it in early enough that thier argument didn't last long, but still.....
  6. For me, running water, drool, etc... Golden Extra Heavy Body Gel (gloss). Not much shrinkage, clear as glass when dry, color/opacity easily worked with other acrylics, readily available, easily workable, non-stenchy, water based, fairly small learning curve, quality product, etc... Just my thought on it.
  7. The spider girl and the Sohie are "da BOMB!" Orchid - Oh, there were others?!
  8. Contact corporate, and don't give up 'till you get a human! I am so tired of this, so glad not to have encountered it, but once (the new home depot) since the move to Denton.
  9. Ahhh.... When one plus one equals three, so miraculous. Good luck, warm wishes, and get to us when it's convenient.
  10. I'll go ahead and voice my opnion again on a companion for Sophie. A not too muscular (no Arnie's, please, oh please) deliciously gorgeous guy with the wing thing going on. Even better if a 72m comes out, and even better yet if it's before our wedding so I can make the cake topper of my dreams! Orchid - goin' to pray to the mini gods
  11. I've got one of mine posed and ready to prime, I'm just waiting until I decide on what kind of tattoo work she's going to have. (And dang, are those wings hard to put an extreme shape to!)
  12. Meh.. Something other than the broccoli would be nice, but DHL are not slot base, that's the way of the line. Not if you run a factory/shop that is set up to make metal stuff. Plastic is expensive to get into producing. Never had this problem, I cut before I paint. Point a: wire cutters and an x-acto type knife are not expensive, and until recently are what I used with only one disaster. Point b: sometimes mistakes need to be repeated to learn how to stop them and still progress in a given endeavour. There are a zillion flavors of ice cream for just this reason, if the taste isn't what you like, choose one that is, the Warlord line has some great sculpts AND slot basses. And they could reply that you could easily learn to remove said bases, that's why there are lines offered for both tastes. And would buy the slot based lines if that was what they wanted. Some do, some don't, but some slot base figs refuse to remain upright, too.

  14. And see, I'm so far behind that I though that was what was starting up when I first heard the music. Orchid - who upon seeing what it was couldn't get "Axel Frosch" out of her head.
  15. Crazy Frog on the Run Don't know if you've seen it, my dad hates it, we love it.
  16. I was thinking the same thing to be honest. And we spend less time and money on our minis?
  17. Can't even wait for the corpse to cool. No respect for a departed friend. 'Tis not I said the fly, we only came home with three of the lasses.
  18. Talk about turning mental gears!! . . . . A bubblgum machine full of DICE!!!! One I wouldn't mind letting my child use every visit, would have him looking forward to even the visits when he was told we were not shoping for him an item "this time," not to mention my loves of gumball machines AND dice!
  19. Wait! I thought that was the CON shirt, not the RAC shirt! I want a refund and re-auction. Besides, I love my new Warlord purse!
  20. I just want minis from that Sophie! Not that I would not get a couple of the shirts had I the chance.
