    Has anyone seen him with good paint? The three I've seen at retail all have horrible paint. Scratched, overspray...dirty...etc. am I just that unlucky?

    The white stripes on the hood and around the chest insignia are the primary places that the paint is usually damaged.

    I found one that looks pretty flawless in altmode, but when transformed, there a slight white smudges on the dark blue parts of his lower legs.

    Yeah, I found 2 at Wal-Mart and bought the one with good paint. Haven't opened yet, so I hope mine doesn't have a problem in robot mode... Looks good in alt mode from what I can tell in the package.

    I don't understand why they used paint. Why did they just make the dye the plastic?

    Wow, even with the bad paint, why didn't you get him? Most of the bad paint is seen in car mode, once you TF him, you don't notice it.

    I would have at least bought 2 of those you saw!

    Mine is great. Had 3 to choose from, and all were okay, but mine only has a tiny little mark somewhere on the hood I believe. Not enough for me to care about honestly.

    Even if I can't see it, knowing it's there would gnaw at the fiber of my being.

    I ordered one online and he's perfect. At least to me...sometimes I think I'm just not inspecting the figures as closely as others do, but I'm very very happy in my ignorance.

    Paint on mine is fine however the screw in the back of his head to hold his face in place was loose so his face flopped around. Was an easy fix.

    I got mine from Hasbrotoyshop and it had a lot of splashes of other paint in incorrect areas. I just used some rubbing alcohol on a q-tip and that cleaned it up pretty well!
