    Could anyone help me out with the release details for him?
    I would like to add him to my Wants list...

    Thanks in advance!

    ^ Interesting....in those group shots, none of them have the 'hand puppet'. I'm too terrified to remove mine, because i'm afraid i'll chip the paint. Well, that and the fact I think the hand puppet dude is super cool looking....

    All of those Sally's for sale were beauties. I had to restrain myself greatly from buying something :evil:

    Just heat it up with a blow dryer and it comes of nicely. I've had zero issues doing that.

    Like Bryce said. Heat it until it's really soft and pull.
    I always wash that blank hand twice with acetone to ensure perfect paint fusion just in case anyone wants to do it.
    Also I put a dab of lubricant (Armor all) on the hand before I put it on, and I double check by pulling it back again, so should be no problem. Just make sure it's soft! ;)

    I've always been hesitant to remove the bitermite (or even move it around too much) for worry of scratching off paint. Looks like you went to great lenghts to make sure that doesnt happen which i'm sure we all appreciate. Having said that I'll be more inclined to remove/attach them now.

    Brobles summed up my exact thoughts. Glad I got a hairdryer somewhere around here...

    *Edited: The hairdryer is key, Super easy on/off.

    Thank you.
    The Watermelon Joe was quite a treat to track down. You have no idea the BS I went through to finally have one.
