    So, seeing as he appears to be made of a flexible, indestructible material from the future; how does this effect how paint sticks to that surface?
    I know painting plastic and then bending it will result in cracks and chipping but is this sort of material simply less paint-friendly?
    Since I bought an airbrush gun a little while ago, I have a ‘must repaint every movie-bot’ mindset so I can have them all metallic and a bit scuffed which has become half of fun of collecting now so if what Hot Fire is made of doesn’t hold paint well then that’ll diminish my anticipation and enjoyment of the figure a fair bit.

    I’ll still paint him regardless but, as I’m new to this, it’d be good to know if there’s any particular technique I should employ with this material such as maybe lightly gloss coating the surface first which could make the paint stick better?

    Well, two questions?

    How does the new head looks like. Also, are the rear and front wheels the same size?

    Answer to both questions is unknown. They're just starting the new head and only a select few have a test shot.

    it looks like there's a very subtle difference in wheel size.
    I think the UT/DX9 design has a more noticeable size difference, but it looks like they took it even further than the real car.

    I hope at least one of the two 3P Hot Rods is able to do these poses.

    Fuck shit fuck.

    THESE PICS ARE MAKING ME REGRET CANCELING MY PREORDER. Seriously, this looks like a beautiful figure that I want to experience. Dammit. I really wish he was out already so that I could make the decision more easily. I also wish I could see whatever new head they come up with first.

    I'm ready for this "Oot Wood" to ship. I'm tired of endless pictures and transformation videos (although both are greatly appreciated). My body is not just ready it's overripe.

    The only thing that worries me is the paint scraping on that back orange thigh pieces.

    That was a red flag for me as well. The toes also.

    I can't help but think since is their inaugural figure-- they even grabbed a pair of pliers to test their plastic on camera-- they are going to address the paint chipping. Well-tested and worn in figure samples can often show tons of paint wear simply through being passed through numerous hands. Not saying it won't chip and be a problem, but I'm guessing they've addressed this or will before release.

    Hopefully! I'm worried that it is the plastic used that is the problem, not the paint. Time will tell, I'm just crossing my fingers.

    Although! If you were to custom paint him to be battle damaged the chipping wouldn't matter, there's an idea!
