    So I got my 2011 Galvatron in the mail and noticed something, something that on ANY other TF I'd shrug off but on Galvatron is pretty big. You know the 4 redsqaures on Galvatrons mid-section? Well I never noticed this but apparently Evac had them too right at the waist. But they only painted the bottom two. Really if they were going to literrally only do 1/2 the work for 4 tiny spots of paint, I'd have preffered they did non at all.

    Still.... worth every Penny.

    I believe that area is unpaintable plastic, so they couldn't paint them if they wanted to.

    well, Then as great as the figure is Like I said I'd preffer no paint as oppossed to "We can only paint 1/2 of this spot...so we will"

    I saw that in some pics, and I was curious why they didn't. Unpaintable plastic explains it. Still can't wait to get mine!

    I can't complain about too many paint apps. There's enough red paint in that general area to sufficiently homage G1 Galvatron's abs anyway; you could always take a little isopropyl alcohol to those squares if they really bother you.

    Noticed it earlier, it's a very tiny area so not a huge thing. Unpaintable plastic explains it anyway.
