It has a nice, dry Canadasian taste. Kel got it for me the other night when her and her sister went to the bottle shop to pick up drinks for everyone. I'd shown her a picture of the bottle and told her who it was made by, and when they went she said she asked the clerk if they had the vodka made by the guy that made Ghostbusters. This one is the 700ml bottle. It was $40. They said they didn't have the full size one, but it's the actual size of a human skull.

You can buy them by the case here, but they cost a lot more than $40 a bottle. $60 for a small, or $121 for a large!

Too bad I sold my drums. We could have started a terrible band.

Sold all of my 1/6 figures in favour of just buying a few of the bigger 1/4 figures.

1/4 Endo. His eyes light up too.

Image

And 1/4 Predator 2. This guy will be getting lots of resculpting, painting and customizing work done to him.

Helmet it TOTALLY wrong. Wrong shape and why people insist on sculpting predator helmets with an extremely pitted texture I'll never know. Netting is brittle plastic shite, and eventually I'll weave my own. Net gun on his leg is totally the wrong size and shape and attached too high on the leg. Wrist blades are too long. In that picture they're pushed all the way in, and their "in" length on the toy is as long as their "out" length in the movie. Replacing shitty black string on the bags and stuff with leather cord. Might resculpt the disc holder on his right thigh, since in the movie it was smaller due to the fact the disc in it in the movie was a smaller "stunt" version, and when he removed the disc it was a bigger "hero" prop. The full size disc could never fit in the actual holder on the movie suit (movie magic like when he pulled the spear and breathing apparatus out of thin air), so making it bigger on the toy to hold the disc makes it look too big and wrong. Knee pads are held on with elastic. In the movie they just kinda stuck to the knees magically. Groin armour was segmented in the movie, but sculpted as one big piece on the toy. And an all over repaint, since none of the paint is accurate (or good, since it's a mass market figure by NECA). I might also eventually sculpt some more hands later.

Other than those nitpicky problems, the proportions and overall figure is the closest to the movie I've seen, and a good starting point for fixing up. I'll throw up some pics of my progress in the model thread.

Those are NECA? I assumed they were Hot Toys or some other high end brand.
