    I recently bought G1 Trypticon that I am going to piece back together. The only thing wrong with it is that the hands and the prongs between his feet are discolored. I would like to repaint them purple. What is a good paint to use on transformers? I have some gundam paint markers but I don't like how those take on plastic.

    Thanks, I will try those. The photodegradation one seems kinda dangerous and it will ruin the electronics on the toy.

    You'd definitely want to diassemble him first! I think the danger is a little over-stated, but no one wants to get sued ;)

    I keep thinking about that piss-yellow and diarrhea green Fortress Maximus someone was trying to charge insane amounts of money on ebay for...

    Actually if its just "yellowed" from sun/temp, and you can get the parts off, you should be able to restore them using a bottle of regular household peroxide. Just dump the peroxide into a glass jar, put the parts into the jar and let it sit in the sun to a day or so. I know a LOT of the articles I've read say to use high percentage peroxide but I've had good results using the regular stuff.
