Bones Black Questions

Recommended Posts

One one of the Reaper Live episodes they hinted that the Owlbear would be available at some point in the future. The Rock Troll is the same as the one in the Bones 4 kickstarter, so I'd imagine that it would be available when the rest of the fellows from that Add On eventually go to retail.

So I just recieved the March free mini and the base is already glued on. I use 1", 2", 3", ect bases and want to take it off the base. Will the glue dissolve in rubbing alcohol or will that also dissolve/damage the plastic?

Iso won't hurt the plastic. You might try putting it in the freezer first to break the glue.

I'm going to have to try and debond my Efreeti figure as well. Her chest is a separate piece and it has a huge gap at the top and sides. Way to big to putty. The head piece consists of the hair and left shoulder pauldron. It's gonna need to go before I can paint her left arm. I might also like to put her on a larger base, although the one she is on looks okay. The casting is beautiful. The only large mold line is the one that goes around the hair, and it's in a good location. Shouldn't be hard at all to smooth out.

 

If I can't debond the chest piece I'll be tempted to ask for a replacement. The gaps at the top of the chest are that bad. I'm not sure I've ever had a figure with gaps this severe. It's a shame as the Efreeti looks every bit as nice in person as it does in the pictures. It's awesome.

 

In the same order I also had the Bones 77514 Iron Golem and 77613 Vanja, Fire Giant Queen. Both came unassembled in multiple parts. Very glad about that.

My March order was large enough that I got two Efreetis.  Fortunately neither of them have the large gap that you are describing.  One did have noticeably worse mold lines than the other, but I am about done cleaning the worse of the two and they come off just fine.  Well, the ones I can get to.  With the full assembly there are a few lines that I am still contemplating the best way to reach.

Whoa, Reaper sent me an Efreeti for posting a question that they answered on Reaper Live! It looks so much better than the one in my store order. You can barely even tell the chest is a separate piece on this one. So happy I'll be able to paint a properly assembled version of her. Thanks Reaper. <3

Ok, whatever they used for glue this time is pretty strong. Iso didn't work and 24hrs freezing didn't work.

Same here. This glue seriously loves this plastic. Almost feels like it would Rick-roll me if it could. "Never gonna give, never gonna give!" :unsure:

Ed said something on a recent ReaperLive that there wasn't any glue, it was done by imparting a heat differential to the two different parts 'We'll make this part hot so it gets bigger and this one cold so it's smaller, snap it in place, and then once it normalizes it's held tight.

That would explain what I'm seeing when the front dress/torso broke away. And why there seems to be a inconsistent, wide range of gap sizes within the piece and between pieces.

That seems a little over-the-top for plastic toys.
