    I'm all for constructive criticism, but I agree. It looks like it was painted with a sharpie.

    Can it be cleaned off? What exactly did you paint it with?

    The description text comes up totally blank, is there supposed to be something there? Also, is that a battle-damaged deco, or is there some other reason why it looks like that?

    It's painted with Testor's Model Masters Acryl. I think my pictures might just suck because in person, he doesn't look bad at all so I'm left wondering what you're all talking about.

    I'll try to offer some insight into what others are seeing.
    It appears that you have only painted the Alt mode.
    So all the red that shows in Bot mode make the over all customs look "shoty"
    I'm going to assume you didn't disassemble him, to paint it.
    I wouldn't say it terrible, but it does need more work.
    With the way the Custom scene is on Ebay now days,
    a custom like this won't sell for much or at all.
    Not trying to be a dick here. Just trying to offer some constructive criticism.

    Only painting I really did for Bot mode was going over the grey with black and chrome silver to give it that metal look. And I don't expect it to sell for alot. Like the other customs I have on ebay, it's something I didn't finish (in the case of this one it's just missing some minor touch ups). I by no means consider myself one of the notable custom painters around here. I do it for fun, which is why these projects that are no longer fun for me are being sold unfinished at a big loss. But I still think this one is perfectly displayable and by no means looks terrible.

    I'm sure it'll sell at a good price because there's still an Aveo Swerve underneath those extra coats of paint.

    My thought's exactly. I've been thinking about how to remove paint from clear plastic and may bid because after all... It is an Aveo Swerve.

    I'd bid if I knew that 'paint' was removable because doing so would return that TF back to it's original value. Seriously, it's worth far less in that condition.

    I would bid only if I could get that paint off of it...
