Hi - I've posted on OSW before, but not for a while, so I'll re-introduce myself. I buy mostly Ancient historical figures and Henshin Cyborg/Walder type figures, and sometimes I do mini customizations, like a little repainting or dying.
I just bought a couple of unopened Medicom Andy Warhol Figures, which were painfully expensive, and one of the figures came with a leg snapped off at the a$$.
(apologies for the crappy photos, I finally got a new digital camera, and then I dropped it, and I'm waiting on a new part to fic it! Not my week!)
If you guys have expereince with them, you may know that Medicom RAH bodies suck. Their design is super articulated, but structurally weak, and occasionally the plastics aren't even good. My Mach Roid figure came with both legs broken, and I had to fix him with computer screws and a drill. the 8" RAH 220 bodies constrantly crack off at the arse.
(Mach Roid is the red shooto boxer on the right)
The seller (who's a collector, not a store) said he'll ship me a new body for free, but I'll have to pay for the body at cost. I'd rather not buy a new RAH body since they're $30, and they suck, plus it won't match Andy's hands or head since the standard RAH body is darker than the super pale warhol.
Does anyone know of a good substitute? Something that I can get in a pale white version? THe real problem is the Medicom hands. Again a really crappy photo, which is too bad because it's a great detailed sculpture with veins and even "fortune teller" lines in the palm of the hand, but as you can see the peg is huge and won't fit on DML or most other bodies I can think of. ANy ideas? I'd rather do as little work as possible if I have to modify something.
