I was pretty shocked Star Trek Beyond lost out in Best Makeup to Suicide Squad. Killer Croc looked good, but Trek had a lot of good alien makeup

@  Maruten : (26 February 2017 - 10:36 PM)

I was surprised to see that everyone's so into La La Land. On paper it seems right up my alley, but I thought it was pretty... meh.

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 February 2017 - 09:38 PM)

I read that as EPCOT status

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 09:26 PM)

I have a sinking feeling La La Land is going to win Best Song and keep Lin-Manuel Miranda from achieving EGOT status.

@  Echowarrior : (26 February 2017 - 07:12 PM)

Our Hydra is better than Marvel's Hydra. Just saying.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 07:05 PM)

ALL HAIL THE MAGIC CONCH!

@  TriBlurr : (26 February 2017 - 07:03 PM)

Hail Hydra!

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 06:22 PM)

Don't we still have Hydra?

@  Verno : (26 February 2017 - 06:10 PM)

There was always the chance we had some Japanese members on the board.

@  Confuzor : (26 February 2017 - 06:01 PM)

I got my MP Primal pretty quickly, but I haven't sent the payment confirmation on my Cheetor yet

@  Paladin : (26 February 2017 - 05:32 PM)

he's been out what, 3 days? Most shipping methods aren't THAT fast...

@  Verno : (26 February 2017 - 04:52 PM)

Does anyone have MP Cheetor in hand yet?

@  Confuzor : (26 February 2017 - 03:11 PM)

Y'all need more Rocko's Modern Life

@  Noideaforaname : (26 February 2017 - 11:04 AM)

I remember watching Doug all the time as a kid, but I watch it now and I don't at all see the appeal. *shrug* On the plus side, it added the word "nematode" to my vocabulary.

@  Paladin : (26 February 2017 - 10:47 AM)

https://twitter.com/CBR/status/835877002192306176 ...game over, man. :(

@  unluckiness : (26 February 2017 - 09:25 AM)

better than the current ones at least

@  Rycochet : (26 February 2017 - 09:08 AM)

90s Nicktoons were awful.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 08:16 AM)

Yeah, I'd get really pumped to watch it and the other Nicktoons.

@  lastmaximal : (26 February 2017 - 08:04 AM)

You digdug?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Hate watching stuff like that.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Also, I digged Doug. Mostly for the ancillary characters, though. Doug himself is one of those characters who gets into situations that make YOU feel embarrassd. Like Fred Savage on The Wonder Years.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:39 AM)

@PlutoniumBoss *Pinwheel fistbump*

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I remember Today's Special. The Toronto part was something of a revelation from my wife and her family when I came here.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 02:34 AM)

In hindsight, I'm pretty sure Miss Frizzle was a Time Lord.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 02:34 AM)

I got into science because of Magic School Bus.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:25 PM)

Anyone else remember Puttnam's Prairie Emporium? Not sure if it aired outside Canada

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:21 PM)

Today's Special was a favourite of mine. Some of it was actually filmed at a department store here in Toronto

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 February 2017 - 10:34 PM)

Eureka! and Start Here were awesome too.

@  The Doctor Who : (25 February 2017 - 09:59 PM)

I remember watching Newton's Apple on PBS. That's where I learned about thermal insulation layers and why things change temperature faster when you blow on them.

@  MrBlud : (25 February 2017 - 09:51 PM)

Today's Special was my jam!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 February 2017 - 09:48 PM)

Pff. I remember Pinwheel and Today's Special.

@  Paladin : (25 February 2017 - 09:47 PM)

my first Nick show was "Eureka's Castle."

@  MEDdMI : (25 February 2017 - 08:00 PM)

You're all making me feel old

@  ShadowMan024 : (25 February 2017 - 07:58 PM)

And Rocko's Modern Life was WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better.

@  ShadowMan024 : (25 February 2017 - 07:57 PM)

Hey Arnold! was better.

@  Echowarrior : (25 February 2017 - 06:42 PM)

And then bought out by Disney.

@  Echowarrior : (25 February 2017 - 06:42 PM)

It certainly wasn't a terrible show. I think it was just overshadowed by its contemporaries.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 February 2017 - 06:19 PM)

I mean, it's not like it was bad, it was just kinda....there. Not especially memorable.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 February 2017 - 06:18 PM)

That requires us to remember that Doug happened, though.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2017 - 01:04 PM)

Just send him to whatever world the Cartoon Doug took place in. Lots of purple people there

@  unluckiness : (25 February 2017 - 03:55 AM)

It's gonna go hungry after eating that mind-control guy

@  Waspinator : (25 February 2017 - 03:49 AM)

It's eating purple people and it sure is fine.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 February 2017 - 02:27 AM)

It's a one-eyed, one-horned, flying, purple people eater!

@  Pennpenn : (25 February 2017 - 12:43 AM)

But it's purple?

@  Noideaforaname : (25 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

Allspark's just a mean green mother from outer space, and it's BAD!

@  ShadowMan024 : (25 February 2017 - 12:10 AM)

Shut yo' mouth!

@  Patchouli Kn... : (24 February 2017 - 11:19 PM)

The Allspark is one bad mother...

@  Foffy the Sheep : (24 February 2017 - 10:09 PM)

My Allspark has never heard of a mother.

@  BlackMax : (24 February 2017 - 09:28 PM)

My mother has never heard of an Allspark.

@  The Doctor Who : (24 February 2017 - 08:54 PM)

This is your mother on Allspark drugs.

According to the guy who decoed it, it SHOULD be "Colony Racing" and the font makes it look like the wrong letter.

Very very nice sculpt, Workbench. Looks like an official head. Wish I had the fine-motor to do that kind of thing. icon-fire.gif

Thanks, guys.

I decided to go classic and add white outlines to the predacon symbol.

And I took a lot more pictures, still experimenting with how to light action figures.




















And finally: http://www.ebay.com/itm/170779931650. I had loads of fun making this guy, but I don't actually collect toys, so I'm "done" with him. If anyone would like to give this deranged little trooper a home, please go check the auction.

Thanks, I love the enthusiasm (who wouldn't), but Daytonus and Nickstart are right.

Another topic: When I made the predacon symbol, I did not sculpt it directly onto Inferno, but instead I sculpted a seperate symbol, then made a pushmold from it. It's simple and does not look like much, but it get's the job done.



Since I still have the original, I could make more pushmolds. So if anyone here is interested, let me know, I'd be happy to send them out for material and shipping ($5 worldwide). Just in case anyone might want to stamp some symbols on his/her own projects. The squares in the picture are 1cm?, for scale reference.

The use is dead simple: Put a ball of putty onto the figure (just a bit more than you'll need), stamp it with the pushmold, then se your sculpting tool to carefully remove excess material from the edges. Remember to keep the pushmold and tools moist, but not wet, if you use green stuff.
