    Does this mean it will have serious chipping? will you still get this set?

    oh definitely. it's probably chipping cause those are hand-painted prototypes (or so i've heard). or those are photoshopped and they missed a spot

    Hand painted prototype. The actual release will be cast in red plastic and have painted details. Don't worry.

    Those prototypes usually look better than what we get in stores, but in the case of paint adhesion I think we'll be alright, especially since that part will probably be cast (oppose to paint) hah.

    I doubt that the retail versions will have these problems. As stated before these are hand painted protos.

    If you look at the Swindle photo closely you can see the hand paint "depth" or paint thickness in the camo detail. It's very obvious these are hand painted.

    You posted the same pictures in the news thread and were instantly told that these were hand-painted prototypes. Did you really need to then make a topic about an already answered question?

    ... or is this some convoluted scheme to get people to lose interest in G2 Bruticus?

    Oh really? Not one response was given to my post and I had a legitimate question about a figure. what did I do wrong here?
