    The Skywarp/Starscream hands are pretty neat.

    wow... if Leader Megs looked like that in mass production, I would have bought him in a heartbeat!

    How easy was the repaint to do? will the paint hold up to playing with or is it a "once it's done, shelf that badboy"?

    Repainting him was easy (a lot easier than I though it would be) the only thing that went wrong is I couldn’t remember how those things that jump up on his back when you press the button on his chest went back so I left them out. The paint held up pretty well unlike skywarp but I don’t think it would hold up very well if I started play with him so yeah I would say his just for display

    wear during play is simply a matter of sanding down those areas before you begin to paint the figure. you should always check with a toy to look for problem areas like articulation points, or joints, or say like in a seeker where you swivel the nosecone THROUGH the chest, you'd want to sand the sides of the chest hole to allow extra clearance so that when you add on the paint, which thickens your parts, they will still clear freely. :)
