Custom Bait: It's Party Time
You know those party supply stores no one ever goes in. Well, I went in. And it turns out they have tons of colored translucent plastic. I spent a little less than ten bucks on all of that.
"Why would anyone want this crap?" you're conceivably asking. Why, to make energy constructs for Green Lantern figures (and let's not forget Red Lanterns and the Sinestro Corps, while we're at it).
I don't know what I'll do with most of this stuff or when I'll do it, but these are some cool pieces with potential. Assuming, of course, I can come up with a way of attaching them to characters' hands. Haven't really figured that part out yet.
Except with these:
These are small, plastic sword picks. The pack of 50 ran me a whopping $3.99, less than 10 cents each. They're intended for impaling small hotdogs or something. Screw that.
The swords are a little loose in the figure's hand, but they work pretty well. Now I can make Hal Jordan and Sinestro sword fight - cool!
Plus, there are plenty more if I ever want to cut some of these up and make a mace or something.
