Do y'all think It would be worth it to take the wings and sash off angel goku and put them on this ufs goku body with the goku head I have on him now? I have an extra angel goku so it's not like I wouldn't still have an Irwin version ofhim
Dang I forgot all about this evolution figure and the fact that u can put the wings and halo on goku. I never even would have thought about it unless I started looking at that goku head on the ufs body lol
He just earned a permanent spot in my collection

If you still want to do it, the sash on the ufs figure is correct because the irwin one is incorrect because he's not supposed to be wearing a belt. It takes about 5 minutes of soaking in freshly boiled water to remove the wings and they don't come out extremely cleanly but they aren't hard to remove.

Alright I think I'm going to try it out then and thanks bran u saved me from fudging them up I was just going to try cuting them off I hadn't even thought to try boiling them out. I wasn't sure about the sash cuz I have a gashaphon of angel goku waving bye and he's not wearing the sash in it either and the gasaphons are usually pretty accurate.

I'm working on repainting that super buu as I type this it was a pain coming up with the right color for him on the pink but I think I got it pretty close. Of corse he'll need about 5 more coats lol. I'm also going to repaint the pants and the gold lines and prob the boots heck I guess the whole damn thing. I'm using Martha Stewart paint which is working amazing I honestly like it better than delta cream coat and that's saying something because delta is some really nice paint

It's been a good while back king when those machines were around I tried to find one near me and actually found one in Charlotte but by the time I went to it it was gone
This is the box they came in in the crane machine I got this one in a lot on eBay along with some other loose ones. I honestly only bought it for the majin vegeta in the last pic because he's a great figure and fits perfect in a 5in scale collection
These were all the figures u could get in the crane machine and all these are hscf but some have alternate colors compared to the og ones
And here's majin vegeta
Also Adam I did wash the pants before I started painting that's just the color of the pants again I have no idea y they painted him like that.
Weren't the crane machines only at Kmart? Unless I am thinking of something else, and I don't think I am, I remember when those came out, funimation had a thing on their website so you could find the nearest crane machine with them to your zip code. Considering I live about 30 miles from funimation, I was pissed that the nearest crane machine was like 72 miles away! You'd think they'd be all over the place in this area so near their company!
That reminds me, someone I've worked with knows Bruce Falconer and told me he lives in the neighborhood south of me a couple miles. I need to take him up on his offer several months back to be introduced to him.

To be honest bran it was 2/3 years ago so I can't really remember. I know it was in a shopping center and as soon as I walked in the door the machines were right there and there wasn't one with any dbz stuff on or in it but the thing u were talking with putting in ur zip code was how I found that one. It must have been a kmart though but the thing is that I remember when I went out there to Charlotte it took me a good 40 mins to get there from my house and there's a kmart here in Gastonia like 10 min from my house. Maybe it was only certain ones but I swear I remember seeing another one in hickory nc after the failed atempt in charlotte and it was at like a go kart slash batting cage arcade pizza party place cuz I called them and they said they didn't have anything with what I was talking about.

I know it was 2 apartments ago for me so that's prob about right but I found out about it late seeing as how I never got one out of a machine so it could have been late 2009 or early 2010 man it dosent seem like it was all that long ago but I guess it was

Ok so y it took me this long to think to do this is beyond me but anyway I had this cell figure and the end part of the tail was broken off and I was going to sell him on eBay as is but then I got to thinking which is rare for me and I thought y not make his tail like this! I still need to add one more coat or 2 of paint and then glue it around the seal and then he's off to the bay unless someone on here wants to make an offer.
By the way has any one done this to a cell figure in the past? I don't think I've ever seen it done before but I could be wrong.
