My pieces melted!! :( :( :(

So I decide to let a friend take my HS stuff over to his place for a few days. Unfortunately, my figs are unceremoniously carried in an old popcorn tin barely large enough to fit them.

So said friend left them in the back of his SUV over the course of a Texas afternoon and, well, I've got a few chernobyl babies if you know what I mean. Most aren't too bad or even noticable but the worst of the lot has got to be poor Su-Bak-Na. Somebody didn't get his V8 this morning... Raelin suffered a similar fate. I thought she had it bad standing on her tiptoes all day to begin with, now she's in a perpetual state of falling on her face.

Does anyone know how I might at least right the figs so they stand up properly again? I try to simply bend them with my hands but they quickly revert back to instability. HELP!

You may want to sent this over to Customization, those are the guys who might know how to fix them.

Yeah, Raelin's from the master set. The offer is too cool of you, Rod.

I have extra Raelin's as well.

Sorry, no extra S-B-N

boiling water should work, if you look at heroscae codex 2 then on like pg 36 I think it will show you how to redo those knights of weston to the barrer of weston so that might help.

great traders:

velenne,

I, too, have plenty of master sets. Lemme know if you're needing any of those.

That sucks big time, but if you buy another Su-Bak-Na, maybe, that could break the dam that is holding up Wave 4.5.

I know it's no laughing matter. It absolutely sucks!


I've always been crazy, but it's kept me from going insane.

This (a post about melting) seems to happen every year around this time...

The key to getting your figs back to normal (assuming they are droopy and not totally melted) is to heat them back up, and while hot, shape them as they should be, then cool them immediately and quickly.

I believe the best strategy discovered so far is to use a hair-dryer to heat up your figure to the point where it is supple, then

re-shape it as you wish, then

dunk the figure (*not* the base) into a pot of super cold water & ice until it hardens in the position you want.

Good Luck!

P.S. Any chance the mods could post some kind of seasonally appropriate "warning" to new scapers:

DO NOT LEAVE YOUR FIGURES IN HIGH-TEMPERATURE ENVIRONMENTS (e.g. hot cars) OR THEY WILL DROOP.

Uncertainty: Something you can always count on.
