Sir Revert, a boiling test

What about this one, then? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054594/?ref_=sr_1

 

 

On-topic: I did hear that a lot of Bones reverted on their own, without boiling, just by being let sit out of the package for some time. Since I'm not likely to jump right into painting, I'll probably be doing a check as I think of it for any of my squished Bones haul. I'll have to put them in a special time out box, I think.

Yeah, this guy seems to be the one that most people are having issues with. I think I'll try pinning him while flubbery from being boiled and see if that works a bit better when I get my greasy hands on him.

I nominate "flubbery" as the official term for that bouncy soft feel of hot simmered Bones, full credit going to Laoke of course.

I love being present when a new word is coined ---however this one might already exist--- but it is kind of a cool reference.

 

 

Cooler references are the original movies flubber appeared in:

EDIT: Ah, dangit, somehow I missed that klawzie got to it first...

Please do not remind me of that awful movie.

 

I have never seen the 1997 film, sorry it was an unpleasant experience. The original 1961 film is where I remembered the word** from, but I linked the somewhat more modern one due to the title...

 

**I'm sooo old.. ::(: ..and thoroughly Ninja'd :ph34r:

You aren't old unless you can sing along with the songs from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. (Most of the tunes were stolen from... kinda raunchy drinking songs.... Look up 'Roll Her Over', and you will recognize the origin of 'Grow the Roses'....)

I think of the flubbery quality as 'wub'.

 

So, a Bones James Bond could be described as 'From Russia With Wub'.

 

The Auld Grump - or Wesley and Buttercup... Wub, twu wub....' :P

"Wub" is also the name of this smiley: :wub:

And it's the sound of dubstep.

This sounds like it would make a cool time lapse video. Anyone?

I wonder if sitting one on the dashboard of a warm car would be enough heat? ...is 120-150 degrees enough?

I had a friend of mine who once left a Games Workshop tank (Hellhound) in his back window for an afternoon on a hot Southern California day. It sure warped the hell out of it!
