    Very minor do.

    Was never a big fan of the mold and I occasionally find Hot Shot annoying, but after watching some reviews, I figured he was worth a shot... and turns out he's not too bad, really.

    Especially after the neck mod and some minor paint touch-ups given the generally... lacking... paint apps recent lines have been getting... he looks pretty decent now.

    All done with markers out of sheer laziness
    - silver rims with blue highlights [or is that... blue rims with... silver highlights?...]
    - black spoiler
    - silver insignia on the back
    - yellow to the signal lights
    - black undercarriage details and silver to the exhaust pipes
    - some grey detailing to the robot chest
    - silver highlights to the robot torso
    - blue to the hip guards
    - silver to the hosepipe detailing on his shoulder guards....
    - silver trim to the ring on the back of his hands [ZETMAN~... errrr...]
    - silver highlights to the guns
    - high gloss topcoat over everything for that does of t3h sh1n3yz...

    ... typing that almost took as long as touching up his paint. /facepalm

    One wishes Hasbro would do it so we wouldn't have to... but at least the flame detailing ain't bad. :)
