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 imagine...would 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 absent...I 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, sadly...so 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.

Re: Fixing Super Powers


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 you...you're just waiting for the Krypton Scum Pack, containing Ursa, General Zod, and that mute dude (I can never remember his name...Nod?).
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 of...a finally produced catwoman, or even better, a supergirl with fabric skirt...right?
No??!! Then what...!? Alfred???? Naked Alfred ????.....Why would you want...ok Phil, nevermind, if that's the figure you want I'll see what I can do...It's not like you can't make your own custom Alfred, but whatever...
Nah, seriously, ty!
