Re: Fixing Super Powers


Thanks for your answers Phil, today I've learned a lot!
I went and looked to your tutorial, thanks for sharing!
Could the boiling procedure result in decoloration, chipped paint or maybe even a deformed melted face thus mutating my SP Robin into a ToyBiz standard figure? Has this process ever resulted into any harm to the figure's paintjob in your experience? Or "they'll be just fine" ?
And how about the torso disassembly? That's gotta leave some dents or paint chips I [sign in to see URL] you recommend this for a figure with flawless paintjob meant to be displayed? "Don't do it then"---it bugs the hell out of me that his power action is [sign in to see URL] feel like I would with an incomplete figure, lacking an accesory for example, so if I can repair it with no damage I would very much like to. I guess I'm trying to assess how much damage will the figure undertake with the process to decide if I should do it or not. I don't have loose/disposable SP to test it out, [sign in to see URL] any guidance would be very much appreciated.

Regarding the symbols, I'd like to recreate the original process. I have a dream, about making my own superpowers figure from scratch, using the same exact process, with homemade modern techniques instead of industrial for long runs.
I can't afford steel molds, I think I'm gonna try ceramic molds and see if they can hold the hot pvc and vinyl shots. They will prolly break, but maybe it can sustain 1 run.
For the paint I think I've found a color code for the colors used in the cardboards, but I could use some more help in that.
Then, the symbol. For what I've read, I can't figure out how the printing plate would hold the ink to be transferred to the silicone pad (carrier). I could really use a video or more info about it since I can't fully picture it. Then I could create my own custom printing plate with the symbol I mean to print, maybe a 3d printer could help, and then figure out a way to matematically apply the symbol in the same spot as the original. Yeah, I'm trying to make a clon, with no differences whatsoever from an original.
Thanks for your time, Phil.

Boiling has never damaged my figures. Sounds like you want a pristine Robin though and there will always be imprefections left when you open them up. You probably want to buy a new robin and use the one you have for experimentation.

Ok Phil, thanks for your answers.
I guess I'll try to get my hands on some loose SP to test this out.
Regarding my clon factory project, once they start rolling out I will "honour" you by sending one of them your way, as a token of appreciation for your help. Any in particular? Or you're just as excited as I am to see the Clark Kent SP figure with open shirt and the suit underneath? Maybe an underwear Clark Kent with removable glasses and fabric superman costume along a fabric Clark Kent suit? Oh, I got [sign in to see URL]'re just waiting for the Krypton Scum Pack, containing Ursa, General Zod, and that mute dude (I can never remember his [sign in to see URL]?).
Maybe you're craving for the Krypton Family Pack ? Jor-el, toddler Kal-el and Lara, with supe's movie ship playset? (always the Reeves movie, !@#$ please...)
OOooook, speak no more, I'm sure I've got what you were dreaming [sign in to see URL] finally produced catwoman, or even better, a supergirl with fabric [sign in to see URL]?
No??!! Then what...!? Alfred???? Naked Alfred ????.....Why would you [sign in to see URL] Phil, nevermind, if that's the figure you want I'll see what I can [sign in to see URL]'s not like you can't make your own custom Alfred, but whatever...
Nah, seriously, ty!
