    Hi Everyone..

    Every year now my wife and I throw a big Halloween party and this is the best prop you can get for that occasion :D I just received this full sized Slimer I bought about a month ago from FX Wiz Steve Johnson. This thing is so HUGE.. I'm not too crazy about the clear green, so I might end up painting it :)

    I 'd try lighting it up first before painting it. Maybe a low-watt green lawn bulb.

    Awesome score, Howard. I almost bid on that when it was on eBay. I agree lighting it could be really cool.

    I have to agree with the others: keep him clear and light him up so he glows.

    Great acquisition. Where are you? I want to come to the party :lol

    Hey I saw that thing in person. Q says you're scarier looking than Slimer.

    At least try it first, you may like how it looks. If it sucks, paint that spud.

    'He can hear you Tom...'

    Yeah, I might try the the light idea first, but I think after viewing the movie about a million times since my purchase he'll look much better painted. But I'll take shots too of him with a light.

    that's awesome. I remember that used to hang in middle of the XFX entry way to greet visitors coming into the building. A lot of good history behind that piece, I am glad it ended up in good hands .

    Wow now that's the kind of trunk space you want in a late model car.

    Very cool score.

    Don't paint it. The translucence gives it character that will be lost.

    Agreed.....coming from a fairly big-time GB fan, no painting.

    The translucence is super-cool. B)

    I think the problem isn't very visable in these pics... the trans green is all messed up with splinter cracks and massive air bubbles everywhere, doesn't look as cool in person. I like the idea of a light that would be really neat, but painted might look just as cool with the right lighting around him.

    When I last visited the old (bigger) EdgeFX shop before Steve had to move I remember seeing this in person and wishing it was hanging in my little shop, well it finally has happened :D

    Aye, I remember the first time I walked into the shop, saw that, and went "woah..."

    It is definately a large, impressive piece. I agree, though...that clear green is kinda...off.

    Good buy, good buy indeed.

    That thing is freaking amazing. SWEET DUDE. I'd paint it if I owned it. So don't feel bad about not liking the clear green. GREAT PROP replica. :thumbsup

    that looks super cool, maybe you could paint it with this layers of paint, just so its covered and still light it from the inside, that way it would still glow but you would have more depth to it.

    does any of that make sense?

    This kind of changes things, then. Cracks won't look good if they're illuminated. I'd at least try it anyway in case it's not too bad.

    I wonder what it would look like with a blacklight on it... Might end up having the right glow (and translucence at the same time).

    Dunno if blacklight would emphasize or hide the cracks though...

    howard i dont know how bad it looks in person with the bubbles and cracks... but as far as what comes across in the pics... it looks like a movie still.

    that thing looks great.

    im with the dont paint it crowd... but like you said the defecst arent chowing up in the pics.

    either way AWESOME.

    When I get a chance I'll try the light to see how the cracks show-up? I'll post some shots to show how that looks ;)
