    I've been noticing, especially lately, for all the flak we give Hasbro for not giving us proper paint apps in many places, there are a lot of figures who have paint in completely unnecessary places. For example- FE Optimus Prime, on two side truck panels as well as the roof pieces, these are cast in blue and painted over entirely on the visible side in red. Why? FE Bulkhead as well- his feet are painted gold, which leaves them extremely vulnerable to scratching during posing and transformation. Why not have them the cream color his hands are?

    The Prime figs thus far seem more than ok in paint apps, but these two and others have some that are a little more than puzzling. Any other cases?

    the fe figures didn't seem to fall into the lack of paint category, the mainline does though.

    RID Cliffjumper and DOTM DLX Jazz both have paint over their what are supposed to be clear eyes. Cliffjumper though has a lighter paint and still can use his lightpiping.
