    I mean, they're a fraction of the size and price of Yolopark, and I'd say these are better designed than TT's models. Is TT even still doing Transformers models?

    From the soundwave box in the back it has starscream it could be next and they can do the rest or starscream could be their last one if it's the second option then it's sad to heat I really wanted that wheeljack

    I'm actually excited for this because I've long wanted to repaint that design, give it a new head, and make it more "Hot Rod-y," but the SS figure is too complex that it probably wouldn't be doable given it transforms. The model, however, wouldn't have that problem. :D

    Does anyone know a solvent that will remove the factory paint without attacking the underlying plastic? I tried to use isopropyl alcohol to strip the factory paint, but that did not work. Nothing happened, no reaction at all. Then I tried Satellite city CRK-H-SS Super Solvent, which has never attacked plastic before, and it totally ate up the Ravage cassette. Luckily I was able to save the backside. Has anyone successfully removed the factory paint and done a repaint of your own?

    Nope, look at the very first post. There’s a larger scale Bumblebee in the works, with Optimus and Blitzwing proposed but unlikely given how long it’s been.

    No clue. Not an expert on painting but if you can't strip the paint, can you either sand it off or prime over it

    Well, yes, I think he knows that now. You're responding to a comment from 2019—back when we only had a look at the unpainted prototypes with no other information...

    BTW, if anyone cares, I figured out how to take the factory paint off, so that you can re-paint... You can soak the pre-painted pieces in 90%+ isopropyl alcohol, but it won't work immediately. You've got to leave them to soak for a few days. One day won't do it. But eventually it will start to weaken the paint and you can scrape it off with a toothbrush, leaving the plastic underneath unharmed.
