    Just received the Takara/Tomy G1 Ironhide and Ratchet reissues and have a question. The white paint on the die cast areas of Ratchet looks great but the red paint on the die cast areas of Ironhide has several small chips. I thought that the new reissues were supposed to have much better paint apps than the original G1's, but at least for Ironhide this doesn't appear to be the case.
    Has anyone else experienced this with Ironhide or any other G1 reissues?
    Thanks.

    I have 2 Encore Ironhides and 3 Encore Ratchets and the paint is fine on all of them.

    Yeah the one I have is fine. Sounds like you have one with some quality control issues.

    Ones I got are just fine as well. Definitely sounds like you were just unlucky!
