    Are those dark turquoise legs? Are they also from BaM stations?

    Very neat. The only thing that bothers me about the purple one is how the left leg has a different tone. Seems to be a problem with all of the purple ones.

    Is this limited to animal molds? There's a couple of non-animal pieces I am after that I don't see yet listed on the B&P page (know their codes, but the search doesn't turn up anything).

    Looks like you've assembled a neat collection, @Brickr! Personally I'm after all monochrome minifigs that are not brown or gray. I think I have all the pieces I need now (with some pieces on the way), except for dark turquoise legs! Dark turquoise is one of my favorite colors, and it bugs me that we don't have a dark turquoise head yet!

    Does the hotlink protection prevent one from programmatically downloading images to one's computer?

    Marvel Superheroes 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I'm not sure how easily fixable it is. The Mark II armor minifig seems to be molded in one of the metallic colors (can't tell if flat silver or pearl dark gray). In that case, the MCU helmet might mismatch, even if slightly, against the new torso. I am also wondering if the Iron Man microfig is the same as the one in the UCS helicarrier or if it has a new print.

    This is pretty neat! How do you populate this database? I didn't even know that hands were sold separately (and I recently purchased some torsos just for the hands...)
  8. I echo these worries. This also makes me wonder if S20 sales might take a hit from concerned parents.

    Interesting. I have been trying Eucalyptus oil, since I've heard good things about it. It doesn't scratch the plastic, but it tends to leave a "ghost" impression of the print that takes long time to get rid of. Is there anything like that on your test pieces?

    Preventing Figure Crack?

    How about temperature swings, though? Big swings between hot and cold temperatures can cause thermal expansion and contraction, which can result in changes in stress in pieces that are assembled. Such a cycle of stress could, in my mind, conceivably result in failure by fatigue.

    Sorry to bother you guys again with the basics of print removal. I just ran a test on a torso. First, I tried using a towel. After I was done, I examined the piece against the light, and I could see the scratches in the direction I removed the print. I then tried using cotton (on the other side of the torso), and I had the same result. Is this unavoidable?

    Thanks! It seems to be more expensive in the US. Does it make the wiping process easier? Just curious. Also, did you guys notice this figure on the cover of the upcoming minifigure journal? Could it mean a classic spaceman in medium lavender is coming? https://www.thebrickfan.com/new-lego-puzzles-and-stationary-pre-orders-at-chronicle-books/

    I think I like the old haunted house more, but I am very intrigued by the special functions in this house. Can't wait for better pics.

    Thanks @Holodoc and @Coopa182! Really appreciate your advice. I just ordered some! Wish me luck...

    Thanks for the input! Since I am a print removal noob, could you confirm this is the exact product you use? (Not sure if there are different kinds). Interesting that metal polish is useful to remove print. I heard Brasso can leave the plastic a little dull. If so, how do you guys get around this? Also, what do you guys use to apply it? Cotton? I want to make sure not to scratch anything!
