    Like many of you I loved this figure the moment I got my hands on it but the lack of the distinctive Megatron "eyebrows" and forehead triangles bugged the hell out of me.

    It took me forever to get the triangles as even as I was able to - it is REALLY hard to get into that tiny crevice and not have your hands wobble just a little bit while painting him up.

    One wonders if they didn't intentionally leave out the paint apps in the face...

    Still... amazing the difference a bit of black makes. Great stuff. Really wish I got this... =.

    Thanks for the comments everyone! After seeing how difficult it is to evenly add the triangles (the eyebrows are not that bad) I wouldn't be surprised if it was intentional to avoid all the issues with bad paint apps it might have created. The problem with them is twofold - the face is not a separate piece so the helmet makes it hard to get to, and there is a slight unevenness with the forehead sculpt which was giving me a headache too...
