Glad I'm not a completest. Smooth round tongue for me.

I use to be a completest but it was driving me to the poorhouse and unopened brown boxes were beginning to to stack up all over the place.  Only recently, has some sanity to my collecting begun to return.

So I just got my second young gohst, i was stoked to see that i got the same sculpt as my first. But when I popped the head off to check out the brain I discovered that its completely deformed except for the tongue and the brain stem. I'm pretty disappointed cause I was hoping to display them next to each other but it looks like ill have to keep the brain hidden away inside YG. Has anyone else seen this sort of issue before?

It's not an "issue." That is one of the variant brains. The brain and tongue will actually come apart in the middle, so you got the same tongue but a different brain. That being said I hate the brain that you got that looks like a mashed up piece of chewing gum.

Ohh really, thanks for that info. I also thought it was hideous which just led me to believe it was a screw up. I guess I'm keeping it hidden in his head Sad

Picked one up yesterday from Dragatomi (almost bought the last two, but figured I'd leave one for someone else). I cannot for the life of me get the cap off. My thumb nails are bruised from trying. I've tried a hair dryer, it helped but cap still firmly in place. Now it's just sitting on the arm of the couch next to me, with it's little tongue out, mocking me. I just want to see what the brain looks like in person! Sad

Perplexing...Mine were hard to pop off but i managed with my shitty nails and no hairdryer. Do u have a small flathead screwdriver? Maybe apply a lil pry action when the vinyl
Is softer after u heat it? I dont want you to scratch the vinyl tho so be careful!

That's a bit strange to me 'cause I've never had any trouble removing the skull caps after heating them up. Perhaps heating it up a bit more than usual? I've even done it to the point of the vinyl burning my finger tips.

Dump it in almost boiling water. Not in the stove, just boil some water, let it cool off and then pour it in a cup and dump the little guy in. That will soften the whole figure. When you get the cap off, trip a little extra from it, it might have some flash there that is impeding it from releasing.

I hope that helps.

As for the 'crap' brain, (I think the name is something along those lines) I like it. It has a really ice-cream-like texture if you look at it closely. The ones form the sub on my end have been almost all the same two brains.

It does get a little softer with the hair dryer, perhaps I didn't heat it enough. I was worried about damaging it. I'll try the boiling water if the hair dryer doesn't work! Thanks guys Smile

ALMOST boiling. I would just start with warm water and see how that works. I don't know what temp this vinyl can get to before it starts to deform.

Ok, if you didnt go all the way with the blow dryer then you are definitely not heating it enough.

Leave the heat on it for a bit, it will deform but it wont stay that way. As soon as it is malleable then just pinch the seam with your thumb and index and that should do it.

As for boiling water, it will go a long way, but it is obviously dangerous and cumbersome.

Vinyl will get soft and then as soon as it cools it will retain its shape, so mold it back to whatever its shape is as soon as you get the brain out. Often times toys will not stand on their own or you can take accessories out, so heating them with a blow dryer is the way to go.

Let us know what happens.

It should be equal but no one knows for sure. No one knows, who will share, how many subbers there are either but id guess this is still the largest run so far.

Already posted this in a "wanted" thread, but I thought I'd mention here that I have different tongue variants of the cap gun and I'm willing to trade them for other Young Gohsts (i.e: Ones from the subscription)

I had so much trouble taking the brain cap off, that once I got it, I've left it off. I like the look of the exposed brain much better anyway.
