    My henkei megs and galvatron has suffered some chrome wear/chip as seen in these pics:

    Is there anyway to restore it? I was thinking gundam markers, is there any other better options?

    Sorry if this belonged in the radicon thread

    I can't really tell from your pics, but if you mean that the chrome has chipped off, leaving bare plastic underneath, there's no way of repairing it except re-chroming it. Gundam markers won't do a damn thing except make it look like crap.

    I hate Gundam markers....

    Do you... play with and transform your figures pretty regularly? Because I've had my Henkei Megs roughly since it was released and it's still in perfect condition (if a bit dusty). And I just keep the figure displayed.

    Really, if you are playing with the figure and transforming it often (to the point where the chrome wears off that much in under two years), restoring the chrome is barely more than buying you time. It'll just wear off again.
