    Do they have chrome, or is that just shiny paint?

    From what I've seen, shiny paint.

    It looks like a metallic paint (not chrome) to me, but I haven't seen any personally.

    the main characters have shiny metallic paint, although some of the less prominent ones are pretty much the same as the hasbro release, bar the faction logos being slightly different.

    Well no, not really. They're just using it as a descriptor. It's not chrome, just metallic paint, like what we've seen with Alternity.

    yeah its metallic paint. like someone else said, the main line characters for the most part, have a full body painted with the metallic paint.

    i have had and sold some bulkheads already and own the following:

    starscream for some reason got only a few spots on him.

    blackarachnia has nothing.

    lugnuts purple has the same affect as the plastic on arcee, with that "shimmer"

    shockwave nothing, just lighter grey for the most part.

    blackout has some silver metallic on his wings/shoulders.
