Diamond Select Toys Janine Melnitz from "Ghostbusters". She comes with a piece for the rooftop diorama that I don't really have use for, a telephone where you can take the handle off, a call button and open and closed boxes with Chinese food. If you look closely, the handle of the closed box does not go all the way around at the side. I'll have to fix that next time I have the Milliput out.

So Mike was taking El for a pizza, and Hopper was spying on them.

I got this model kit for a vending machine from HobbyLink Japan. I left one side open so I even was able to put a light in!

https://hlj.com/1-12-scale-vending-machine-red-pkt050

I only had built the lab table set so far and that was snapped together so this was the first that I actually had to glue and I apparently made every mistake you can do

I bent the front side too much while trying to cut it off from the frames and ended up with a visible tear/break. And despite my best intentions I also had smeared glue on the front side so I ended up painting it red which does not really show thankfully. I also managed to get glue onto the clear pieces and trying to wipe that off with paint remover was not one of my smartest ideas... well the clear parts are now frosted glass and who says that can't be possible?

Finally I seem to have some parts left over but that is not my fault, the manual never asked for them. I also think they mixed up parts 11 and 12. Despite all this, I am still very happy with the result and I even managed to put a light into it.
I might want to look for some black square as base so I can rise it up a little for my larger figures. Ed is 6" but also bent over a bit.

Ed and I enjoyed the first "The Orville" comic very much and we can't wait for part 2 coming out this week. It was like watching a new episode.

This is Hopper looking like Magnum ;) But I really do like this figure. Look how detailed the jeans are! Look at the creases of the shirt at the back! Looks very realistic.

Hopper1



Again, look at the creases at the pants! He's also sporting a wrist-watch. He comes with Walkie Talkie (as if I didn't have enough of those already), a special hand to hold it, beer and his gun. I did a comparing picture between this gun and the one from the other figure. Turns out, the first one was painted more nicely, it had a brownish insert at the handle and silver screw.

Hopper2



And this is a crotch comparing post - the jeans one looks much nicer but he can't spread his legs as wide and also not to the front, to sit on a bike for example. Still, a very nice figure and I like it very much. Shame I did not like Hopper much this season :( alumfelga

Hopper3



And here's Eleven in her new dress. She also comes with another Walkie Talkie (not pictured, as by now you should know what they look like), more hands, and a shopping bag which looks a bit small for her. It has a different design on each side.

For alumfelga who just finished this season, and I realized I haven't posted these in here.
When I posted them on Instagram a while ago, I got likes from the official John Belushi and official Blues Brothers account (run by Judy Belushi and Dan Aycroyd) I thought that was pretty cool.

As are the figures! I mean, look at all the detail and the stuff they come with. And you can see that these are selfmade costumes, I love the buttons from mother's button box! And there are two Venkmans as they argue who would play whom.

Dustin's trap even opens and closes and Will has his film camera. I can't believe how quickly I went from "I'll just buy this sheriff guy as I could always use a sheriff" over "well might at least get Eleven so he does not feel so alone" to "need to get all the kids in all possible outfits". At Toy fair 2018 they also showed us a Dustin with Dart from season 2 but it seems we won't get them. I'd also love Steve and Joyce.

And since I always do come from the wrong end of things, only NOW (recently) I have watched the two original Ghostbusters movies for the first time in my life. Somehow I had always managed to skip them. So funny to finally see Dr. Janosz Poha who I only bought so I could give Alfred his grey coat. Or to finally see the fire station and the roof top with the dog statues which I only had known from the action figure displays so far. I'm seriously tempted to get Janine, the secretary. She makes a great normal woman for displays. Could I probably use her as Florence for Hopper, taking away his donuts / doughnuts? Now there's an idea...

I also am wondering whether I should chuck out 200 Euro for the Stranger Things LEGO set, which comes with both real and upside down house and I want it for the sheriff truck alone! Look at that! For me not really being in the fandom I do seem to spend a lot of money on stuff. Hm.

But I digress. Where was I? Right, Stranger Things boys in Ghostbusters uniforms. And now that I have them they are stored away in the box and I have no idea what to do with them, even though they're awesome. Hit me with ideas please!

I visited the space museum in Morgenröthe-Rautenkranz, the place where the first German in space, Sigmund Jähn, was born. I loved the exhibition & I got these two Space Explorer puzzles. Today on the 50th anniversary of the moon landing seems like the right day to post them!

I guess since alumfelga is in "Stranger Things" mood today this is the perfect day to post my picture with Chief Hopper aka David Harbour!

Originally I had tickets for Heroes & Villains at the Olympia in May in London, just like the last two years, where I met all the "Gotham" cast, especially Sean Pertwee. But this year there was a lot of upset, we did not get any news, barely any announcements and finally the whole thing was cancelled, ah I mean postponed till next year. But I was in London anyway as I already had that theatre ticket with Tom Hiddleston.

Someone mentioned that the same weekend is also MCM Comic Con in the Excel Center. I looked it up and the first guest was David Harbour. So I just switched cons. It's a big con, not so much actors but games and other things, even a whole hall with Japanese food and I played with LEGO when I did not have anything else to do. Very relaxing con for me, as I really only was there for David Harbour. They also had Stephen Amell and Misha Collins and also the Winter Soldier guy, just to give you an idea.

I gave David a book with my Stranger Things action figure photos and he looved it. I even had the time to explain it a little, he talked with everyone. Then he asked me where I was from and I said Dresden. He automatically went on to the next small talk question and started to ask whether that was a huge place, then he caught himself and said, of course he knows Dresden, from the book "Slaughterhouse 5". So I told him how beautiful our city is and the next day actually took my netbook and showed him a picture of the skyline with the river and the steamboats and he said it's beautiful and now he wants to visit ;)

And I showed him the "Stranger Things" novel that I had gotten in Forbidden Planet, it literally had just come out a day before and he said he had heard about it but not read it yet and that I now knew more about Hopper than himself.

Very friendly guy, would love to meet him again! I also saw some Eleven cosplays and also some Hoppers but sadly never at the right time to ask them for a picture. I loved especially one that also had the blue jacket from season 2, he had the right stature but my hands were full with Japanese food at the time and he walked by quickly going somewhere. I never found him again in the crowd. But I got a picture with the black guy from Hawkins Police which is something.

Oh, and as for Sean Pertwee? There was a German convention in April which had lots of "Gotham" guests including some I had not met before so I went to that instead. All worked out well in the end.

I took a Spike body & Wesley head and made my own Ed Mercer action figure.

01-Ed

A lot of stuff had to be cut away. It's a nice figure and I was sorry to destroy it but I really wanted an Ed.

02-carving



I needed to cut a lot at the backside, they had this so the coat would flow but the jacket needed to be tighter.

03-Carving-2



I smoothed out all the crinkles in the sleeves and pants with Milliput. I also later added the collar and details like the comm at the sleeve. And I cut a little triangle into the t-shirt at the neck.

04-smoothing



I also changed the hands with wide-spread fingers to more closed fists.

Originally I had just wanted to paint him blue but the paint I wanted to use had dried up and I did not want to wait till tomorrow to buy new one. So I found this cloth that was given to me back in 1989 for waving at a Socialist demonstration. I already used the yellow version for my customized Captain Kirk and now the blue cloth will fit Ed. It was a bit too dark though so I painted it with water color that is also from my childhood. I love how it gives the uniform a bit of texture. Not shown: I also had to alter the hairline of the original head plus make the blue eyes brown.
