...buy some filament :p
Not that I have any say but some glow in the dark filament would be cool.  Or if there are any UV lights some UV filament would be cool too.

I kind of want to try abs but even with the upgraded power supply I don't know if these prusa clones are really up to printing high temp materials.

My technique for getting ABS to stick -

Heat the bed up pretty high

Let it get nice and dirty with glue stick. a thick coat is not a bad thing. I rarely clean the bed, just put another layer of glue stick on. I will put a damp paper towel on a hot bed to even out the layers of glue stick if it the glue gets too thick or uneven.

Have the first layer really tight to the bed. The layer should be smashing a little against the plate.

I do that, and I can get the smallest parts to stick without needing a raft or skirt.

Stronger, doesn't degrade outdoors, higher melting point. Downside other than the heated bed that needs to be tuned to prevent slipping is the extrusion stinks a bit like burny plastic. A lot of people prefer to have ventilation when printing ABS. I kinda like the sheen on PLA better, but for hard parts I like ABS.

That's nice work.

You need to move it away from the Rocky poster though. It looks like he is using your 3D printer as a urinal.
