    The paint on the Beast Mode head started to come off (somehow *shrug*)

    Is there some paint that is similar in color to the color to the toy, or is there a way to fix this other than that?

    Okay you need to get a clearcoat spray that'll protect it from rubbing either that or enemal paints those paints are tough and probably won't flank off like acrylics because those did that on me or the plastic wasn't adaptible to that paint hope that helps if not go ask Frenzy_Rumble or any other painter out there and believe me there are some great painters.

    Acrylics can be a bitch to work with. How soon after painting did you tf ol grim? I find you usually have to wait something like 10 days for the acrylics to cure before you even think about moving any parts

    I think you've misunderstood.

    The paint originally on the toy has begun to come off.

    I was wondering if there was a paint color that could match the tone of the plastic.

    there's some gold and red on the head. Sounds like you've been a little rough with the toy, and that you've had things rub against the feet, right?

    MP, you can always use some Future to coat your Grimmy for protection. All that you want to know about Future can be found in the tutorial that we have here in our "Tutorals and How Tos" section.

    Keep us posted on your restoration :)

    Apparently it does, the head has that "prototype" gray color in some spots.

    Do you mean the neck and torso? Cuz the head itself is just that weird light/pale gold color and nothing else
