    I just opened up mine, and while the paint job is pretty excellent and the figure itself is superb, there's a couple things that just irk me.

    For one, the paint job on the translucent plastic is pretty pisspoor; the paint job on the windshield of my Prime is already chipping.

    More importantly, the pieces don't snap into place like with the regular Classics Prime. In alt mode, the "shields" that fold in to create the cab don't match up to the pegs all that well; hell, on one side the rectangular peg doesn't go into the hole naturally. It's almost as if the plastic of the "shields" warped and made them shrink or something. If I weren't buying for others I"d be tempted to open up another one of my Primes just to double check.

    Anyone have the same problems?

    I will say though that the light piping is superb. They did the whole" paint over piped eyes" thing, which would normally annoy me, but the whole eye isn't completely painted, so when light shines through, you get a nice purplish glow.

    Mine's fine. I had a slight warpage issue with my Magnus from that mold, but my Nemesis is perfect.
