    Very COOL. I only ever purchased the ST EMCE reissues with the exception of TNG and Pike. I don't have any vintage ST by Mego. I'd probably have got the ones I missed had the EMCE line continued.
    I collected the Playmates 12" line of everything ST. One thing that disappointed me was the lack of a Dr. Crusher at that scale. (And then the same company would disappoint me again by not making a 12" Scotty from the JJ Abrams movies, but they showed a prototype.) I like that you included her.

    Thanks everybody for the kind words!

    And I see you're the lucky owner of both a Dunsel and one of T's exquisite "belly" shirts.
    My belly shirt Kirk and my Dunsel Trek figures are the pride of my collection. The Dunsel figures are what inspired me to build my own customs. (I still hope to be that good someday!)

    I have not tried to shrink any of the FTC heads. Not all vinyl heads react to the naphtha. But given that it doesn't damage the paint or the hair, it is certainly worth a try.

    Yes, the heads have been shrunk down to size and the uniforms have been tailored to fit a standard Mego body. For instance, there is a seam on the right side of the outfit where the department color meets the black... hopefully it isn't noticeable.

    My god, I haven't been this exited by a custom set in a loooong time

    Just perfect

    If this doesn't win COTW, I want my membership fee back, lol

    Gosh... Even in Mego form, I hate Wesley.

    This is just superb

    I love these Sprytel! Was the chemical time for shrinking the playmate heads the same for all heads? Were there any heads you were unsuccessful in shrinking? Did you have to repaint the heads?
    I post in thy general direction!

    It seems about 24-48 hours is the window... in my experience, after that point, additional time doesn't seem to have any effect.

    I have shrunk 17-ish Playmates heads... and while some of the effects have been more severe than others, so far I have only one Scotty head that just wouldn't shrink for me.

    No repaint required. That's the best part about it.
