    Frosta, Rattlor & Cy-Chop arrival thread

    UPS just dropped off my gigantic box of matty sub items for October. Black Lion is huge!

    Nothing unexpected so I will post pictures shortly, any requests?

    My Frosta has reversed forearms, wheres the tutorial to fix this? Another problem that everyone could have is that the mine didn't seem that the plastic she was put in was long enough at the arms, both of her hands are mushed into bad looking fists.

    Yep...I'm definitely heating and popping those bad boys. Heat the joint where the shoulders meet the biceps. Heat the wrists. Switch them out and there you go.

    Someone show us how the corrective operation goes!

    Since people are getting theirs now... Here's the fix for Frosta's forearms...

    Heat up the elbow joints with a hair dryer for about 20-30 seconds.
    Carefully peel and pull apart the elbow joints. You can stretch the plastic pretty good, but do be careful. The pins will either pop out or partially pop out.

    Heat up the forearms at the wrist, because you'll need to pop out and switch the hands too. Again, 30 seconds under the hair dryer will do the trick.

    To pop the hands back in... I find it works to re-heat the forearms again... Cool the hand pins under some cold water so they stiffen again, and pop them back in correctly.

    Then re-place the forearms in the correct arms. Re-Heat both parts of the arm you're working on, you'll want the plastic nice and stretchy/soft. You'll need to pinch, squeeze the elbow area to get the pin to fully pop back in.
    It'll take some good pressure, but it'll work. The females are much easier to do this on than the male arms!

    It really is that simple. You're not going to break your toy. Just be careful not to loose the pins when they pop out. It's honestly about the same as putting legos together as long as you get the plastic soft enough from the hair dryer.

    Hope this helps all who wish to correct their Frosta arms!!!

    Are the biceps identical? That would be cool, if true. I've only had to take apart elbow joints once (TRU Aquaman), but I'll be honest, I don't ever want to do it again.

    I think so, going from pictures. Unless body shading paint apps or musculature throws off swapping the arms.

    The arms of MOTUC figures are way easy to remove, either by boiling water or hair dryer. Swapping the boots on certain figures was a royal pain! (I put Bubble Armor She-Ra's boots and bracers on normal She-Ra this summer. Getting those boots off was Herculean, although normal She-Ra's boots came off easily.)

    The tutorial I promised will be forth coming just as soon as my frosta arrives and I open mine up.
    I will be waiting to put the video out since so many ppl comment to my inbox that they wanted the tutorial to be of "Frosta" and not another motuc female that I had modified.


    ... even tho it would be the same thing and that I even offered to reverse said already owned females arms just to show how it can be fixed tho...

    ..so the tutorial will come when mine arrives. So everyone will be happy, an no one will feel I am showing a video that wont help them.

    Some quick Rattlor pics. Pretty perfect out of the package. Seems like he's actually cast in blue plastic.

    Oh man, I'm looking forward to all three of these figures (and Black Lion) - what an awesome October we ended up with!
    Glad to hear Frosta's arms will be so easy. That's a relief. I've never tried any swapping myself.

    Some super fast Frosta pics. Her forearms were reversed, fixed them right away swapping the biceps and hands, took two minutes. Easy. Her outfit isn't very white, especially next to She-Ra 2.0 and TOD Sorceress, but still a nice figure. Ankles are a bit loose, but also fixable.

    Staff came out much nicer than I thought - and she looks great with fixed arms. Your pics also make the hair look not-so-bad (I wasn't a fan of the translucent). I already liked her, but when I get her we may be a bit closer to love.

    Nice pics!
    But how do you tell that he's cast in blue plastic? Because of the joints? They were cast that way not to mess up with his pattern. But is the plastic of his skin blue aswell? I for sure hope it's red as it's supposed to be...

    I love Mek-A-Neck and Rattlor's Neck Off, they're having! I also love the Great Rebellion pic (minus Bow and Swiftwind). The ranks are growing, slowly but surely.

    Snake VS Frost

    I can't tell you how excited I am for both of these figures! My second Frosta went to oulala as payment for The Sword Of Power letter opener he got for me at SDCC and he came over tonight and we swapped Frostas forearms an OULLA HAS THE POWER because the pegs on mine were SO stubborn but he would not give up and thanks to him she is now awesome and ready to go!

    i like cy-chop a great deal more than i thought i would. he doesn't look as much like random parts in person, and the giant scissors are too much fun.



    my girlfriend keeps calling him "side-chop" just to drive me crazy...

    Cool pic! I actually like him even better with just one scissor hand. I think I might display him that way too.

    Got my subs and Frosta's arms are now fixed! I actually like Cy-Chop less than when I first saw him, but I opened him anyway so I could just mix and match spare parts to make a random background Hordesman.

    Coupla' quick questions about Cy-Chop and Frosta...

    Cy-Chop - wasn't there a character in the first few episodes of the Filmation cartoons that had a head like Cy-Chop's? (and a blue-ish costume) Also, on the figure, does he come with the hands I keep seeing people use? Or are they being bashed from another fig? (Roboto?) I MAY be interested in Cy-Chop if I can make him the Filmation character and maybe use one scissor hand on a staff like I have seen in a previous post.

    Frosta - is there a screenshot/pic of Frosta in the Filmation cartoons to show what her hair is supposed to look like? I never watched the POP series and oddly enough (I think because I like the color blue so much) I ordered Frosta today. Would like to see a screengrab so I can decide if I want to re-do her hair along with the forearms (gonna do the bicep switch based on previous reports of struggle while doing the elbow switch and the fact the biceps look identical to me. That may change when I get her tho.)
    Take it easy,
    Drew

    Looking for: deals on MOTUC Roboto, King He-Man, Meckaneck, Zoar (from Sorceress) and more!
    Have to trade: A couple MOTU vintage, GIJOE (vintage 3.75 inch and 25th Anniversary figures and vehicles), Star Wars, Transformers (movie line), and Marvel Universe and a few Marvel Legends, plus MORE!.

    I can't help you on the Filmation question, but the hands you see being used for Cy-Chop are from Horde Prime. He's got the silver hands that pop off (on both hands), and they go really well with Cy-Chop.

    As for Frosta, in the cartoon, her hair color was a lighter blue. Think of cotton candy blue. You can find videos on youtube to see the hair color.

    And yes, definitely go with the bicep switch. When I first saw my Frosta, I couldn't really tell that her forearms were wrong, but i did the switch anyway. As soon as I fixed it, then I could see the difference. It only takes about a couple minutes. Use the hairdryer method.....heat the biceps.....pop them off the shoulders........heat the hands/wrists......pop off the hands and switch them.....heat up the biceps again and pop them correctly onto the shoulders. When I put the biceps back on, I had to twist the arms around until they settled into the sockets, but it was very simple.
