    as some of you know, animated ironhide has a line of mold flash across his chin, from the way the chin is put together.....it really ruins the look of the face, i was wondering, anyone successfully cut that off, i am wondering how it looks with it removes, i just won one for $25 shipping included on ebay (the thread in the junkion exchange is useless imo) and i might attempt to remove that ugly line off his face, but i want to know if someone else did it yet?

    I still don't know what this "chin mold flash" is.

    It's a little flash connecting the bottom lines of his chops.

    From CookSux's feedback

    I scratched at mine a little and made it worse, so I'm no longer going to worry about it.

    So it's the sort of double-chin line? I can see how that would be annoying. No idea how you'd remove it safely. Maybe a nail file or something, but you would probably need to repaint it. Anything you do is likely going to leave unpainted plastic showing.

    You'd have to sand it and repaint the face and perhaps the helmet too (if it extends to the red portion).

    Maybe the Takara one it won't be as noticeable if his helmet is painted.

    Nail clippers, an exacto, or even a razor blade would work.
