    Because I don't see the point in it. Even if somebody did buy it, they wouldn't notice a difference because they didn't get the unpainted version. I would rather paint it, and appreciate the work myself.

    not worth the time and effort.
    but this is why people buy them, detail them, and sell them for a small profit.

    Someone who does that would have to be very very kind hearted, and have lots of free time. There's very few of those people around, and chances are, they're not into Transformers, nor are they artistically inclined.

    Not that I'm totally against this idea, the fact you just put it back to the store with no profit is more or less just throwing your work away, as you don't know who will buy you handiwork or even if they'll enjoy it.

    This.

    Not that charity is something to be frowned upon or that you should always look for some sort of retribution, but looking at how much time, effort, and money that would be involved I think someone with this much spare time and resources on their hands would do much better donating to something really worthwhile. Like feeding the hungry or taking care of the sick, and not pandering to people bitching about a few missed paint applications on a toy.
