    What's a good brand of sealer/clear coat than can protect the toy's paint from coming off?

    Go to Walmart
    Go to the spray paint section.
    Find some stuff called "clear coat" (Brand = Krylon)
    Use that.

    Grab a bottle of Pledge floor polish, (should have a label that says "with Future shine") and then grab some brushes from the craft section. It's self leveling, and not prone to getting brush marks in it. I actually used Q-tips to apply it to movie Barricade's doors, and they both smooth and shiny.

    Personal preference: Tamiya flat clear coat or Humbrol acrylic satin varnish.

    I just used clear nail polish sealant. It came in a polish 2-Pack. First bottle is the colored polish, of course, and the second bottle is called Always On Sealant (made by Revlon) cheap and it works. I painted the damaged areas of Animated Megatron, Snarl, Prowl, and Soundwave, and it worked. If you look close, it leaves a shine, but if you look at it in normal conditions, no shine, hides nicely and is chip proof. I haven't had a single problem since. Not one.
