    Not really... The surface isn't smooth like say an airbrushed paint job, but there aren't scratches on it... :thumbs2: 

    I just used something similar to an exacto knife and slowly scratched off the paint... As long as you don't use the point and just use the entire edge, you're fine... The white coat on the face was pretty thick on mine so removing the gold coat was fairly easy... :thumbs2:

    Fo real dawg!


    Just gonna leave mine alone. Incase they fix it later and can say that you own a white nosed version.
    If it bothers ya that bad then just ask Michael Jackson for some pointers, Im sure he'd have some ideas.

    I REEEAAALLLYYY wanted to leave it alone... But then I thought of the goatee idea and thought "gold goatee or white nose???" I went with gold goatee instead...:p

    Just dont get too creative or he'll end up with a beard like Kenobi. You know how those look on machines

    Sounds like that goatee might be hard on particulat robot chins.
    Would look cool with a G1 Alpha Trion or Scourge look but trimmed.
    Sounds harder than it seems.

    Just incase you decided to paint it black (to match his head visor)

    When is the street date for this figure anways?

    I went into a Target store today and found Ricochet. There was only one figure. I snatched it up quick too. Bought it for like 19.99. Is that a good price?

    Great... He went from a crackhead to a mummy to now a fricken MIME... :cry 

    I decided to play around with his face some more... There was too much white...

    Viv says she doesn't like it... That maybe I should make the goatee black...

    I like the added black on the edge of his helmet... Gonna have to think about the goatee being black... Maybe that's too much black and white... I kinda like it as it is...
