    anyone else they painted over the eyes? i mean cyberfire bumblebee looks so evil and i think same effect could have been used with this 1 as well. :/ still pretty cool figure though.

    anyone else feel this way about the eye piping?

    Yeah the paint on the eyes ruins it for me. That's why you disassemble the head and then take the paint off with nail polish remover.

    YEP.

    just try to get the highest % you can find. I have 91% and it works GREAT. does not mess up plastic, and removes factory paint.

    I used rubbing alcohol to remove the flames from cyberfire BB and the logos like the D-con and A-bot symbols from both Bee and Barricade as well as Barricades to punish and enslave slogan. Use a q-tip and rubbing alcohol together. Some logos and paint applications will just rub right off but some you will have to use some force and rub a bit harder. Also, nail polish remover does work but only use it if you plan on repainting after as it does take off paint applications but it will stain the plastic and or dull the plastic out a lot. Also... if you do use nail polish remover, make sure it is acetone free as the acetone based nail polish remover will melt the plastic lol.

    Whatever you do avoid acetone. Acetone actually melts the plastic, so if you intend to use nail polish remover, make 100% sure it has zero acetone in it. With rubbing alcohol you can literally soak a part overnight in it and it'll strip thick paint apps. S'what my local friend does when he does extensive repaints.
