    The purple paint on his arm cannon is slowly disappearing-what's going on with that? do i need to worry about the rest of his paint flaking away or is this unfortunately a common occurance and only happens with the cannon faction symbol? It's a shame-i love that purple

    No problems with mine, but I got mine during early 2008 (the first production run). Maybe there's an issue with the latest production run.

    The faction symbol is least of your problems... I didn't realize until recently his entire sliding shin guards are chromed and everything but the kneecap is painted black.

    I've owned two of these and haven't really had any problems with them that were factory generated. My current one has the faction symbol coming off of one side of the cannon, but that didn't happen until I unceremoniously chucked it into a bag with several other loose transformers so that's my fault, not Takara's. Generally speaking I've found that if they are properly protected the fair rather well.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much, again I've had two of these and even carelessly tossing one around the knees on both have been just fine. As has the rest of the chrome. The one symbol is the only one I've had come off and that was my fault.

    I'd kinda like to get the United one just because of the lack of Chrome. My Henkei was fine last time I looked at it. He's been in a box since I moved back in June.
