Hard to tell on the wings as blurry as the sticker picture is, but on all the others I would definately have to say paint. That purple looks great. I wish my Hobby Lobby had that color. They have a grape pearl which might be close though.

hrmmm i like the idea of the paint instead of some of the stickers, like the ones on the legs and waist, but do like the silver stickers on the vehicle.

i have 2 more coming and might try the purple/pink on the legs as i have a metallic sharpie that is perfect for these typs of touch ups.

i also want to add this color to the front grill of the vehicle as i think it is sorely needed.

Definitely better looking with the paint. I did the same thing with the Takara version of the ground-based Vehicon.

Excellent, the paintwork definitely looks better. BTW, what do you mean by cleared with floor polish? Is that what you do to seal the paint and stop it rubbing off?

Yup, there are certain floor polishes you can use for a clear coat and tighting ball joints and such.
