>figure breaks in small way >no matter how small the break, i still think of it as a broken toy forever>even glued back together it feels brokenWhy?
>>10726151Our toys are a reflection of ourselves. No matter how small the wound we are forever broken.
>>10726151It's a mindset thing. You repaired that figure, and now it's not only a stronger figure that survived bad QC at the factory, it's also truly yours. The glue you used to seal that damage now binds you together. As long as your figure isn't crippled or turned blue all over, this damage you fixed is the patina on your well-worn boots, the wear and tear on your favorite guitar. Let it fill your heart, anon
>>10726151Usually because hotfixes never make figures the same as they used to beI've had to fix 4 breaks so far and only 1 still functions, the others pretty much gimped the joint/articulation of the broken areaI feel people who go the extra mile of trying to fix stuff while retaining movement and stuff probably don't feel this way
>>10726151i honestly felt this way for awhile with my mafex hush batman. He fell and broke his wrist and i replaced it with a revoltech wrist joint. It functions the exact same but as u said, it still felt broken until I started to play with him again and that feeling has past. I guess it depends how broken the figure is.
>>10726151Oof, happened to my Origins Scare Glow, he fell from a high distance and had a crack on his chest. I still pose and take him to classes but now I fear his torso will break completely
IDK, I kinda like it. For me it’s like personalization; leaving your own little touch.
because once it's broken, you know how fragile it really is, so you're treating it with a softer hand.It's an almost innate common sense and you're putting it to good use.
what if a figure has a crack in it? is it broken?what about a stress mark where you can tell it might snap in the future?What about a scuff or a scratch or a break? What if you take it out of the box and touch it once, and your finger removes a single molecule from the surface of one of the parts? is it broken? just curious.
>>10727186Stop playing with Theseus' ship
>>10726247Based. I feel proud whenever I look at a figure I’ve fixed, and I buy a lot of broken figures just to fix them up as well. They’re trophies from my ability to fix something.
"The more stitches, the less riches"
>>10726151I know this feel, but I’ve tried my best to get over it. My only expensive car model, my Autoart Toyota 2000gt, lost a side indicator lamp on the door. I don’t know what happened to it and I couldn’t even find the lamp once I realized it was missing. So, I cut a small piece of rubber to size and painted it silver. It looks ok from a distance. Small parts like this aren’t available, so I think it’s the best that I can do unless anyone has any better ideas. I still love the model, though.
>notice a small crack on hinges>immediately put in on my facebook page to sell and look for new copyhelpespecially hurts when i bought Hi-metal with imperfect paints or small dents
>>10727219My BW Optimus Primal is in Theseus ship status. Every time I lost a part or something broke, I'd look for one in worse condition but with the parts I needed to replace intact. Actually, my Scorpinok too, which actually has 2 of the rocket launcher claws because I realized I liked it better that way than having the bee drone claw that never stays in or launches nicely.
>>10728962Looks good, honestly. You can’t buy a cheap kit of a similar model? Or I expect you could pay somebody to model and resin print you the part.
>>10729015There are no other models of this particular 200gt, it's a race car and the lamp is only on those. Finding pictures of it is even hard, it's only a couple of promotional shots for the product itself. none of the model parts sites have the part either. I really couldn't even give a modeller something to work with. You have good ideas, though, thanks. I'll probably just leave it the way it is since it's alright.
>autism cope threadLol
>>10726151>girl fucks a black guy>no matter how much of an oreo he is or how small his dick is, i still think of her as a ruined mudshark whore foreverThat's just how it is OP.
>>10729037>Racist incel has a racist take>no matter how much we want racism to end there will always be little dick racists who hate just becauseYou racist lot are worse than Liberals and give us non racist whites a bad look. Tired of non whites thinking all whites are racist because you ass backwards, sister fuckers blend in so well with us superior minded whites. Can't go to one corner of the internet without some racist incel dweeb with a chin like a drooping faucet has to bring racism into everything. I come to enjoy toys, not constantly see racist shit I know is coming from someone that looks like me.
>>10729248don't burst a blood vessel, bro
>>10729248And watch some dumbass take "looks like me" literally and try to use it as an insult when you know I mean skin color Clown.
>>10729259Trying not to. I love other cultures, I try to experience as much as I can but I fucking hate that everyones first kneejerk reaction is to think I'm racist because I'm white. Its fucking 2023, only southern sister fuckers who don't know how to use the internet should still be racist. I come here to escape that racist shit man
>>10729264you sound naive
>>10729282Not even. I've even had people tell me about their experiences with racist white people and why they feel comfortable talking with me. Its fucking crazy how people wave around the the thing they didnt work for or earn, the thing that literally doesnt fucking matter and that you can't change as something that makes them better than another. Toys should be the only thing we're talking about here but a fucking racist had to relate garbage to the topic. Can't fucking get away from that liberal fucking topic.
>>10729248>>10729261>>10729264>>10729301Damn bro that's really cringy, I don't know why your redditor ass thought it would be ok to post cringe like that around here but maybe you should go back
>>10729321I don't fuckin use that liberal echo chamber you dweeb.
>>10729336Sure you don't, Mr. Jewish Propaganda Loving Tranny. Sure you don't >>10729349Nice selfie, bro, but again more suited for social media than 4chan
>>10729357Ever heard of Mutt's Law? It's just in their faulty genes, poor burgers
Wtf are you talking about weirdo lmao Do you just spout any random garbage buzzwords you hear? Damn you're sounding more like that picture now. Now we're further off topic than when that racist fuck derailed us.
>>10729362You're the one ranting about white people.
>>10729366Agreed, I am ranting about being white.
>>10726151I feel that. At that point the figure just feels unique to me. Not trash or useless but different. Especially if I fix it. Then I'm always reminded that the part I fixed isn't the way it was originally intended.
>>10729362>>10729372You literally started sperging out about your white guilt and how you wish whites could all be enlightened cucks like you and now you're bitching about others derailing threads when you're the spaz that started the whole thing Faggot
>>10729380I don't have any white guilt you basement dwelling no chin, incel bitch. You weak ass virgin pussies can choose to sit and ignore that shit because you don't go outside and don't interact with anyone meaningfully off the net. I'm here to talk about toys and have to read that disgusting racist shit because 4chan panders to you racist loser fucks.
>>107293891. Stop projecting2. You're a tourist faggot3. Go back
>>10729394Its not, but I find it fuckin funny no one called out the racism that derailed the thread in the first place. Or I guess thats just a usual comparision that no one can argue with right? Fuckin 4chan lmao
>>10729403It's hilarious you expect "the good fight against racism right side of history y'all" to be fought on 4chan. If you seem to have such preconceived ideas about the userbase, why did you ever think they'd be the type of person to give a shit about brown people or that this place would care about any of the shit that's regurgitated literally everywhere else online?Like I said, you're a tourist and you're much better suited to live on Twitter, Reddit, Instagram, Tumblr, etc etc if you're going to throw a little bitch hissy fit everytime you read the n-word on 4chan (which the original post didn't even include)
>>10729397Projecting? Wtf is tourist faggot? You're the one talking about Tranny sex you weirdo bitch lmao Again go touch some grass you fuckin duckface dweeb. Go do some meaningful shit with your life and get out of your moms basement. Maybe then you'll understand why the rest of us superior whites are tired of you fucking racist freaks
>>10729405Wtf is this post even talking about lmao not even gonna dignify this Bitch drivel with an actual response lmao
>>10729412The more you obsess over tiny dick incels you do nothing with their lives the more you prove you are oneNobody is this sensitive over a simple post on 4chan. Your idea of superiority is being a white cuck and it's sad you hate yourself and have such white guilt that you try to shove it on others Go back
>>10729411You fucking basement bitch lmao Tourist, I don't have social media and I don't use that liberal fuck factory reddit. I barely even use 4chan outside of a few topics but everywhere I go I challenge it because i know theres some inferior white incel behind it. Its got you so pissed because you know its true.
>>10726151>he doesn't appreciate battle damage>he doesn't make up lore to explain itngmi
>>10729426>pissedThere you go projecting again. You're on the verge of tears over being called out on being a newfag who doesn't belong and somehow I'm the one who's mad?Are you underage? Keep letting little dicks and incels live rent free in your head. Actually with the way they fuck with your head, you can't really call them incels anymore lmao
You racist incel bitches sound like a bunch of virgin faggots that obsess over being racist because you got nothing to show for your pathetic existences lmao Ain't never gonna stop calling out you inferior bitches wherever I see you. White guilt from simply wanting to call out racist drivel written by chinless virgin tranny obsessed faggots. Got it lmao I suggest you become a tourist with thr outdoors you unwashed fucks lmao suck my dick I'm Gone Racists
>>10729448Enjoy Reddit, Tourist-kunAnd work on your projection and self-esteem issues
I sincerely hope the helluva coom retard dies in an accident. Can you please kill yourself? Please. Nobody will miss you. You dedicate your entire life to being an annoyance and ban evading. Nobody will miss you. Your parents never loved you. Whatever dismal childhood you had was completely deserved. You are a worthless human being. Please stop wasting bandwidth and oxygen and kill yourself ty
>>10729248Worst post ive seen all fucking week on here. Anti racism is just reality denial. You dont realise every non white is racist to whites and each other behind your back?
>>10729301Lmao just wait till you realise up to half of all white supremacists arent even white. Worlds way more complicated than what America lies to you as being the problem with society.
>>10726151Time heals most wounds OP. Take a break from the figure and youll come back loving it like new.
>>10729357>>10729359It's funny how yuromoslems cannot stop talking about Americans regardless of discussion. Must be their cope, poor third worlders.
>>10729412Anyone that's spent any time around non-Whites has valid reason to be racist. The only ones who aren't racist are you guys that live in your gated communities in 99% white areas. You live in the safety of a white society while thinking you're fighting the good fight or whatever, meaning average people have to put up with being victims of crime because it makes you feel good about yourself.Go spend time in a ghetto white boy, go tell the negro how much you're helping him. It's not like one of you guys got stabbed in the street just a few weeks ago right? Got stabbed by one of your own pets. Anyone not racist at this point is just retarded.
>>10730233why do you reply to the spammer? you're no better than a nigger
>>10726897>A wild Subjectanon appearsHow have you been?
>>10729448This was written by a bot.
>>10730233Couldn't have put it better. These libtards will rag on and on against the white working class about being intolerant and racist but wouldnt survive a day if they had to put up with the violence and shit less privelieged whites endure nonstop from violent non white scum.
>>10726151Only if it ruins the cosmetic quality of the figure then yeah I agree.>>10726247Yeah it depends on the kind of fix, e.g. replacing a weak rubbery joint with a sturdy metal one makes me feel better about a figure.
>>10729248jesus shut the fuck up dumbfuck
>>10730233anon the retard you replied to is either a nigger or a jew, probably a jew.
>>10734997>ugh fellow white people amiriteYeah I'm thinking jew
This seems like the perfect thread for this.I've been going through old stuff recently and unearthed a couple of old action figures (10+ years, easily.) They're wearing clothing made of some kind of pliable polymer - silicone, rubber, etc. Not sure exactly what.It's begun to crack due to age, pic related. It's still flexible and not crumbling, but I can tell that the cracks would easily grow larger if one was not gentle with them, and will probably grow larger over time anyway.However, I do have a tube of clear silicone bonder/adhesive that I got for repairing one of my keyboard membranes a while ago. Should I try rubbing some of that into the cracks/over the surface of the material, in an effort to seal them up, or is that likely to look like shit/not work and my best bet is to just box them up for now and handle them gently if I ever touch them again?
>>10735429That looks pretty fucked beyond repair. You could try it since it doesn't seem like there's much to lose but usually when this type of plastic loses its plasticizer and starts to get that severely damaged, it's irreversible I dunno, try it anyway, I guess
>>10726151Well if you're a pitiful poorfag like me, it means that you truly cannot get the money you spent on the figure back if you hit a financial emergency. It's completely lost funds.
>>10738019>selling out your children the second you're in financial troublesoulless... I bet you still have both kidneys...
>>10730233>>10733201So, the take-home message is that you're poor?
>>10729248Based as fuck take, the amount of seethe you generated replying to one retard is incredible.
