    It is a paint thinner. It comes in big metal cans at the hardware store.

    I fill a jelly jar 2/3 full with the stuff. Then I thread some picture framing wire in the head hole (so I can keep the head submerged) and lower it in until it is completed submerged. Then seal the jar, and let it sit for a day or two. There is no expansion like you see with acetone, and it doesn't seem like you can leave it in too long... so it really doesn't require babysitting while its in the jar.

    I find it helps to apply a little heat and pressure (i.e. squeeze it down a little more with my hands) once I pull it from the jar, just to get it as tightly compacted as possible. On some heads, this can lead to a little flattening of the top of head if you are not careful... but even when I have done that, I don't think it noticeable once you put the figure together.

    For male heads, the last part I did was 3d print a little neck adapter to give it a Mego compatible plug... but now I bet you could just use a new Mego body. For the ladies, the neck plugs are mostly compatible... but you may need to widen the hole slightly so it can fit on.

    I really, really like these.
    I'm hoping future waves of Star Trek will include Chapel while producing updated heads of established characters.
    There's nothing wrong with the vintage heads, but I'd prefer seeing the Star Trek line get new head sculpts.
    That was super smart shrinking the heads.

    You're a bad man Sprytel, I can only respect that.

    I'm not giving her or Uhura underwear! Definitely giving Yeoman Rand panties just because it's Janice Rand and I always had a crush on her.
