    Man, how lazy does Hasbro have to get to not to do this in the first place?

    Awesome work. Now they don't look like a common pair of safety glasses.

    Very nice...I remember a few people doing this to the KissPlay version.

    I guess both Takara and Hasbro felt that the paint aps were needed elsewhere...

    Perhaps the reason why they didnt do it is because when you flip the visor up under the crest, the blue is visable....maybe they figured it was a big deal/people would gripe about it?....

    This was my assumption as well when I saw the KP Hot Rodimus. I'd say that this was the decision on TakaraTomy's behalf and when Hasbro decided to make this toy, they just followed suit.

    You leave just a little clear on the top so that it isn't visible, but when place in down mode the unpainted clear part doesn't appear because it's covered by rodimus's forhead crest.

    Looks great. But if you want to be really picky, his visor in the movie was green, wasn't it?

    Those arm cannons are friggin' SWEET!
