    Does anybody know what a fair price is for a Vintage G1 Defensor (without packaging)?

    I was able to a very good knock off defensor with G1 packaging for $70 shipped from iOffer. I think it is the same one that kotoys had before they got shut down for g1 figures. Peaugh has a review of it on his YouTube channel.

    I got same the KO Defensor Giftset yesterday but found that Defensor's eyes were not fully painted red - his eyes have an outline around them where it should have been painted so they look smaller than they should.

    The 5th pic down in this link shows a KO Menasor with the same problem, but not as bad as my Defensor.

    After staring at it all night, I decided I need to get either a new Hot Spot or just buy a vintage G1 Defensor.

    Wouldn't buying some paint be cheaper?

    Yeah, I was thinking about that. I have no experience with painting (e.g. which model paint, brush, etc to use) and am afraid I might mess up his face.

    But, it would be a good chance to paint his eyes a cartoon accurate blue instead of red.

    Yeah, ok maybe I'll google model paint and brushing techniques.
