    I got Kiss Players Hot Rodimus yesterday. Turns out one of his feet is unpainted. Does anyone one know if this is a common production error? It looks silly. Kinda like putting on two different socks.

    Hmmm, although I don't own the toy (bought other stuff) this is the first time I've heard about this problem. Sorry to hear about it.

    No need to be sorry about it. Not my first production error. Back in '86 or '87 I got a Silverbolt with 2 lower left legs. That's still the one I have.

    So now one should expect this thread to turn ridiculous by getting a load of "mine is fine" posts in a row? ;)

    Eh, importing US Alternators isn't cheap either, although admittedly cheaper. There's no Alternator version of this one. I really don't mind, gives it something unique.
    What colour, the same dark red as the other foot, just minus the black and yellow paint.

    It'll be easier to fix then 2 left feet or if it was another color all together. Just buy matching paint.

    True, but I have no intention of doing anything about it. If I did I'd probably mess up the painting job anyway.

    I haven't seen complaints about unpainted feet before, and don't even own one yet (considering it, but I'm not a fan of the price tag). However, I have seen a complaint or two about an unpainted door, which is even more silly considering how noticeable such a flaw should have been,
