    Hey I tried painting mine with gold and it came out really nice so for anyone else that wanted to try that I thought I would share.

    <img src="http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y197/jedimasterdani/IMG_0411.jpg">

    It came out really nice, I used a ZG Painty brand paint marker with a fine tip.

    I don't see why Hasbro couldn't have painted it themselves though ::shrug::

    Dinobot, you should check my thread in the TF Funnies forum (linked in my sig)... Judging from your sig pic, there's at least one I think you'll find amusing. ;)

    Yeah, I painted mine, too. Looks good unless you hold it up to a light, then it's pretty transparent (although I've noticed that most Force Chips have the same problem). It ended up being a trial run for my Vector Prime paintjob (I gave him almost all of the same paint aps that were lost from the GF version. The wings were a huge pain in the ass because the brown paint I got was really watery. They look amazing, though. I've been meaning to take pictures and post them).

    make sure you put some clear coat on there, so it doesnt rub off.

    I painted mine a while back. Don't remember if it was before, or after I painted the cab window frames. I masked it off, hit it with some gold paint from the airbrush, and took the tape off.

    And, some of the red paint on the insignia came off with tape.... :banghead:
