No idea, but I'd guess it'd be some in-studio job otherwise, given the obssessiveness nerds can have over about 50 years, we'd know by now.

@  Telly : (26 May 2016 - 08:54 PM)

They apparently did it for "shock value", despite it not being particularly shocking or having value.

Most of his latest thread got closed because he asks the same questions over and over again.

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2016 - 04:12 PM)

I like Taco Bell. But I only get to have it maybe once a decade since there are no Taco bell locations here in Newfoundland

Brian Kilby was in our hearts the whole time.

@  Echowarrior : (24 May 2016 - 08:05 PM)

I'm definitely not Brian Kilby.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2016 - 06:04 PM)

Taco Bell has proven to me that god is truly dead.

@  Paladin : (24 May 2016 - 12:21 PM)

http://uproxx.com/life/taco-bell-fried-chicken-shell/ i hate this & also want to eat this.

@  Benbot : (24 May 2016 - 11:11 AM)

I'm familiar with him but I still don't get the joke.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 08:07 AM)

Aw, you ruined it.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:58 AM)

@robowang, I would have laughed at the joke if I knew who is Brian Kilby

@  Benbot : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

Everyone quickly say something so it scrolls down

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I love this board. I'm still convinced you're all Brian Kilby.

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:47 AM)

beetleman, if you read this I'm not saying this as a fact, it's just a thought.

@  Robowang : (24 May 2016 - 07:42 AM)

*Beetleman logs on and reads this*

@  tffan01 : (24 May 2016 - 07:40 AM)

I think beetleman might have a mental disability of some sorts. I'm not saying he definitely has but if he really does, you guys should be a little kinder to him. That would also explain why he says he is a 19 year old but his parents are overprotective. I'm not saying he definitely has but it's a possibility. Or he's just a 8 year old that says he is an adult.

try to get 99% isopropyl, it works much faster then the normal 75% most stores stock. I have never had any issues with plastic tolerance using just rubbing alcohol, however you want to avoid prologned contact, just use as much as you need. Avoid getting it on too much of the figure, as it will disolve any adhesives and weaken other paint apps in the area. Also clean the figure with something before painting, as the panel lines can hold rubbing alcohol in them, hindering repainting.

And, for the love of all that is holy, change the thread title to "tampographs"

For simple tampos, like faction sigils, I've found that rubbing it with a hard eraser, like the ones on the tip of pencils, works like a charm. It was very effective at removing the big Decepticon sigils on Universe Heavy Load.

Erasers do work really good too, just always be careful some erasers and any eraser that appears to have grit in it will sometimes marr or dull certain plastics, so maybe test on a part normally covered during most modes.

Rip the green scrub part off the back of a sponge. Cut it into small squares, dip it, and rub away. That worked wonders for my Ramjet and Skywarp customs.
