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

    yep. the ONLY thing wrong with future is IF you want a non-glossy finish. If that's the case then you'll want to use model-masters/testors or tamiya clear-coats, as they are available in matte/flat and also semi-gloss/satin finishes.

    Whatever you use make sure it is a non yellowing formula and if possible a UV protectant. You want the figure to look great for a long time right.

    Good news for me. I have bottles of all 3 testors clear-coats, some Tamiya clear-coat in spray and in the bottle/jar, and I have some future as well.

    Sounds like I'm all set ;)
