    Well, my 86 Blurr arrived today and the first thing I did after getting him out of the package was fix his face.

    Look at that ugly mug. Euckh.
    Doesn't look too bad on camera but in person... creepy. Gives me the shivers.

    Did some selective knifing and filing and sanding.

    After a lick of paint and some Molotow Liquid Chrome for the eyes (plus an overcoat of Tamiya enamel clear blue), he looks pretty nice.

    I could have done better, but at least I knew when to stop unlike Megatron. Still ashamed of that.

    And here's the boys all together - still need to pick up Kup and grab Arcee when she drops.

    Pick up Arcee “when she drops”? Dude, there’s been ER and Kingdom Arcee’s “dropping” for some time now. ON EVERY SHELF/PEG everywhere. She won’t go away!

    There's going to be a Bumblebee movie version and a SS86 version. I'm REALLY hoping it's not Earthrise with a pink face.

    I think if they repackage ER/KM Arcee as SS86 people may riot.
    I have High hopes for it myself. Hell, I love my T30 Arcee, but I hope this one outshines her in every way.

    Anyway, back on topic...
    Do the pontoons on your Blurr stay in place? Mine like to flop around.

    With a dab of superglue on the tabs that keep them in place, they hold pretty tight!
