? Re 3896 figure
« on: November 13, 2020, 17:12:36 »
Iíve been completing sets via ebay etc for several years. I had all the parts for 3896 Tree Stump Goblin EXCEPT the figure itself. Very hard to find! So I ordered a temp replacement that was similar. But I suspect maybe was customized somehow? It looks exactly like the goblin figure EXCEPT it has a girlís hair, black. I donít think that even exists as an original part? Just curious! I didnít know you could remove child figureís hair!

You mean 3898. I think someone has swapped a girl's head with brown skintone onto your figure. Swapping the whole head is the only way of changing a child figure's hair. Mind you, I can't find a girl's head with those white eyes and mouth, so perhaps someone has done a successful hair transplant?

BTW, I can't see your pictures (they are shown as having a size of...0kB  :-[). Perhaps you could add them as attachments, or post them on an image hosting site and link to them here (more details on either method available....).

At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)
