    He's so big, I just used a brush and didn't take it apart, but then I have very steady hands
    I used a flat clear coat after with a dry brush
    On Apache, I have no Idea, I don't own it, I'd need to see it in person.
    I'm holding out for the X-transbot version as I like it's bot mode better, but may change my mind depending on reviews.

    I'm just really shocked by some of the negativity that goes around when comparing action figures. I get dismayed when I see arguments like, "Figure X is AMAZING! Figure Y looks NOTHING like the source material and it's AWFUL!"

    As someone who went through a drought of lack of G1 figures that looked like the cartoon and had good articulation for years, I'm overjoyed with the amount of choices we have these days. I'm glad I have choices and don't have to settle for what ever toy has/Tak decides to repaint as a homage like I did back in the day.

    Thank goodness for 3p options. It would suck to have to wait & hope Takara releases something.

    That's one of the reason why I didn't get him. Sculpt wise, He looks good.

    I recently purchased Allen. After sticker modifications to tone down the yellow, I am really enjoying this figure!

    Do you like Allen more than Apache?

    Is there grey underneath the green paint on the back fins?

    Has anyone else had issues popping parts on this guy? There aren't any divots for fingernails; in fact, a lot of the parts join with almost no seam, and the amount of force it takes to get them apart is kind of extreme. I basically have to go back and forth between using a spudger and a screwdriver to do any transformation.

    Same. I broke a nail trying to pull a yellow piece out for copter mode! Luckily, I did not bleed. I have to use a tool to get the gray ball jointed bits out from his legs

    Those gray parts are the only pieces I need a tool for; I don’t think it’s humanly possible to get them out otherwise.

    How did you paint his hands, face, and thighs? It looks great. His face looks better!
