PSA: Using Pencil Ink Eraser for Minifig Print Removal


Ink eraser = bootleg collector's friend


Above = After. 


Picture above is from before and from my review found here!

YOU HAVE TO USE THE INK PART OF THE ERASER. Not the part for pencil of course. Works well for small ink marks, for big marks, I've tried already on my yellow Deadpool turned Shocker and I'll show you guys soon! 

For now, I think this is neat. Way better than my previous way of removing face prints. Well at least for smaller ink parts. Being too rough on erasing though can leave the plastic a bit rough and removes shine, which again proves that this method is really better for just smaller print.

WM Brand WM204: Mr. Vampire's Lam Ching Ying Minifig


Mr. Vampire? 


Uhhh I really don't know the guy but I did a bit of research and found out he's a Chinese actor/character who's a vampire hunter. 


There he is in real life. See the resemblance? 

Interesting choice of characters, WM...
