    I am picturing it, visualizing it, imagineering it. 

     

    A different way it could have been designed. No sockets. The legs have a flat plate at the top of the drumstick. The bottom of the Hut ...flat. One flat surface that glued to another. 

     

     If only

     

    While this would work, it would only have the strength of the glue to support the 'connection'.  An actual connection like they have is always going to have far more strength than just two flat pieces glued together.

    The engineering of the Hut is puzzling. (A flat bottom on the Hut and flat tops on the legs...FTW?)

     

    Magnets...

     

    Yes. This ^ exactly. Or washers and a sheet of flex magnet sign. 

     

    I'm not sure where you're seeing this?  From the cut pieces it's quite obvious that there are sockets in the hut and "pins" for the legs, not flat mating surfaces...

     

    Given the apparent weight of the hut, I have my doubts about flex sheet magnets having enough power for the job.

    That leaves me even less hopeful about having attachable/detachable legs. It's possible to pin something like that but would be a hassle especially if I want them non permanent. 

     

    Actually, with the recesses like that, you just need to glue some rare earth magnets in the hut and the legs and you're all set.

  4. Didn't get the hut, but has anyone tried masking off the bottom with tape and taking a hacksaw to the legs?  It should be long enough, and if it'll cut steel, it should cut Bones.

     

    I didn't follow previous KS thread very closely, but is this level of mis-packs normal, or does this seem higher than previous?  Some of it seems to be stemming from issues at the factory where stuff was bagged up (Modern Scenics missing barrels), and others are just stuff getting picked/packed wrong (Missing Mossbeards, paints etc...).

  5. Did they ever announce the actual contents for the Modern Scenics add-ons?  Reason I ask is that I only have two of each barrel and the graphic shows three of each.  They're cast two to a sprue, so they'd have to clip one off of each sprue to get it up to three each.  Sprue attachment is on the sides of the barrel as well, which will take more work to ensure they're smooth, than it would if they'd done it on the bottom of the barrels.  :down:

     

    I've finished the gross check of items.  Need to look at the core and Dreadmere to make sure I've got all the figures in those.  At some point I'll have to start checking to be sure I have all the parts for each figure.  ::o:

    Is it odd to receive a portion of your order? I got a shipment yesterday, it has all my addons in it, minus Baba Yaga Hut, but it doesn't have the Core Set, Dreadmere, Darkreach, or Fan Favorites in it that I ordered. Should I be expecting a second shipment?

     

    You should have gotten everything in one big box.  I'd contact Reaper.

  7. Finally got to see "Captain Marvel" this weekend.  I got a bit choked up at the Stan Lee tribute during the opening.  I also liked the shout out at the end of the credits for the Thunderbird pilot who took Brie Larson under his wing for training flights, and passed away before the movie released.  Wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed the movie. 

     

    New battle cry for "Avengers: Endgame" = "RELEASE THE FLERKEN!"  ::D:

    My package was apparently on an extended tour of OKC. Arrived just after midnight on Thursday morning and left this morning at around 0530.

     

    From the little I've seen, OKC is probably a great place to live, but I wouldn't have thought it a good place for a four-day visit.

     

    I wonder whether my message to customer service managed to get it pulled from the bottom of a pile and finally put back on a truck. Well, whatever. It will probably show up tomorrow.

     

     

    Looks like our packages were spending quality time in OKC together for the weekend.  Mine started moving again this morning.  Still projected to arrive at my house tomorrow.

    I wouldn't use a power saw of any description on thick PVC unless you can turn the speed way down. Saw blades generate quite a lot of heat, and the melting point of PVC without plasticizer is pretty low. Plasticizer drops that further (though there seems to be significantly less plasticizer in Bones Black.) It's really easy to melt plastic with a saw, and that makes a mess.

     

     

    FWIW, a chop saw does a dandy job of cutting cleanly through PVC pipe.  Doesn't melt it and the cut residue is interesting.  It makes little shreds of PVC. Pain to clean up since it's very light and has a high static charge so it wants to cling to everything.  NOt planning on try it with Bones anytime soon...

    THEY DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!

     

    Got my tracking!  Only 16.3 lbs which I feel doesn't sound right but I guess I didn't get any expansions and was picky with the large items I bought. 

     

    The best part though is that it is scheduled for Saturday delivery!!

     

    Guess you'll get yours before me!  ::(: ::D:

    If that is the hold up I will be sore at myself for getting Rulers of Hell in a additional order and bogging my order down with it

     

    we will see tomorrow hopefully

     

    ????

    Rulers of Heck aren't one of the 'bad' sets of figures...

     

    Baba Yaga's hut

    Tree of Despair

    and the ever popularFrost Giant Huntresses 

     

    are the terrible trio of 'might get you delayed" add-ons.

    Does anyone know if they do separate orders separately, together or what?

     

    like, is my early locked in order going to be held back because I did a later order for rulers of hell

     

    They ship all your orders at the same time.  If they run out of the Rulers when they get to your order(s) they will set you aside until the new supply arrives, at which point they go back and start filling the held order(s).

    Yeah I'm wave 1 and locked in on 9/11 and we are pretty close to each other (I live at the junction of Highway 14 and I-25)

    We'll see who gets theirs first :winkthumbs:

     

    Edit:  Just to be clear I dont know exactly where you live so dont be creeped out or nothing. 

     

    That's like 10 miles away from me.  Wow!  It'll be amusing if we get our orders on the same day.  ::P:
