Is there anyway to fix pic related. I have OCD and it's annoying the fuck out of me. I got the piece for free but it's an expensive piece to replace and I can't paint for shit. Any ideas or do I just have to succumb to the torment and wait until I stop noticing it?

Go to a hobby store with the piece
Compare paints till you get one that matches
Buy that paint and a micro brush
Dip the micro brush in the paint, then dip it in water. Wait a few seconds, apply paint. Repeat until you are happy with the results

This is not hard

I left the doll hobby right around the SOOM rundown and you're absolutely right. Hooves for all sizes, wing of all kinds and horns like you couldn't imagine. People wanted them for parts, modding, full-sets and all kinds of things. I used to watch the new monthly doll release like crazy to see what new amazing thing they came up with. Transparent curled fairy feet? Aww yeah. Resin cat paws for SD with unicorn horns. Why wasn't it done sooner? Have an OC who needs birdwings for hands and a beak to go with his goat hooves? Got you covered! Everything felt special and it was marketed as 'limited' and back then almost nobody else did them. Rereleases definitely killed it.

>want it to have the same face all the time
>get head

>>5701279
>remove magnets
>add new magnets

>>
>>5701281
Agreed. My Lillycat doll's faceplate pops off every time I try to adjust her head position or wig. I often have to take off the faceplate, adjust, put faceplate back on-- aw crap, not quite the look I wanted-- readjust. My LTF is similar, but not as bad. I'm not as panicky about that one since the fp can be replaced easily.

I love the fact you can change faces without taking the whole head off, but it needs better engineering to keep it from consistently slipping off.

>>5701495
Have you tried getting out magnets that are glued in there? If the freezer/heading method doesn't work, it fucking sucks and you almost always chip the doll.
>>
>>5701398
Removing magnets can be a serious pain in the ass.
Seconding other anon, when freezing doesn't work the only thing you can do is drill into the magnet and hope you can remove it without damaging the doll.

Honestly easier to just tape it down or stick some putty between headback and faceplate.

It depends on the condition. In general though, I like starting with a very dark black / brown color like Burnt Umber.

If I'm making really rusted tracks, I'll instead start with a more reddish brown color by mixing some red brown with a very dark brown.

This is just the base color though, tracks vary by quite a bit depending on the vehicle and the environment the weathering occurs in. Dry brush some dark steel tone pigments or enamel paint over the tracks, then do a darker brown wash over everything, then you can seal everything up, do some rust pigments on the insides of the track, as well as dry brush some dark steel / iron color on the parts of the tracks that have direct contact with the ground and would be worn the most.

Done priming it. Can't start painting the primary colors yet because I don't have a proper IJN gray and I don't want to mix the wrong color.

Anyone have any ideas how to mix the correct IJN gray from Tamiya paints? I know they make a specific XF-75 IJN Gray that I'll have to go buy if I can't find a proper mixture.

I want it to be accurate. I need some kind of reference in order to mix the proper shade, which I don't have. I usually use my model master enamels as a reference for mixing Tamiya paints, but I don't have an enamel IJN grey.

Dark Sea Gray (XF-54) might be the closest match I have, but I'm not sure.

I'm so excited for Suga. I know they most likely won't do all of the team because it's way too many nendos but I hope they make Daichi and Asahi as well. I'm sure they will make Iwaizumi and Kuroo to have two for the other teams. I have a deep hope for them to make Bokuto and Akaashi since they're very popular in Japan and some of my favourite characters.

What mega Venusaur is that?
>>
>>5700245
6" battle supreme Mega Venusaur. Comes with the old school rotor gimmick that flies over and hit your friend in the eye. I'm surprised that they still make toys with such gimmick, I remember there was a line about Dragon riders with such gimmick and it got canceled so fast because kids are hurting each other with it.

Picked it up at TRU for 15 bucks, the gimmick works, decent size, decent articulation (you can swivel the legs, and the tree on his back). Literally the best purchase I've made for bang per buck in years

That line up looks really great! Not a fan of the Mega evolutions, but there's something enticing about their scales.

Do you have any others for Charizard and Blastoise?

Also, Bulbasaur is about 2.4 feet tall, so he's easily in scale. You could even argue, with Venusaur's size, he could be smller. The nendoroid bulbasaur would probably be a better fit.

Goodsmile has to have him coming since they did Nendo Kirby & Meta Knight is coming. However, I think a Figma figure would better suit him due to his size.

What the heck are you buying? Triklops? Most of the figures are $20-30 on ebay, or $25 or less from the matty store. Wait for a sale and the perpetual unwanted stock online drops to under $20. Or like the other anon says, buy the stolen factory pieces from ebay for $20 shipped. You can even buy a mixed bag of accessories for less than $10.
