    I just use Mr. Color Clear Yellow paint on it. The regular version is clear so it has the advantage that you can color it with any color you want, either yellow for cartoon or purple for TFTM.

    Any advice on how to get a better "pegging in" of the clear piece into the chair? I feel like the depth of the hole isn't deep enough; it never feels like it's securely pegged in.

    That’s the problem. The port isn’t big enough.

    Trying to make the port longer with a 5mm drill bit would be too risky. If it really bugs you that much, then you would sand down the peg until it fits better.

    So that is the official reason?

    Hmmmm I wonder just how much room there is to deepen it before you pop out through the top of the blast piece?

    I can't get the red face on for the life of me. Infuriating.

    I kept cutting a bit off the peg itself. It's easier and safer than expanding the hole in the effect piece. Keep cutting small bits off until you achieve the fit you want.

    I did the unscrew method and after that it was pretty painless to get the red face on. Still, annoying though.

    Also is it just me or is this guy way bigger than he should be? I thought they were like half the size of Optimus in the show.

    What might throw off your sense of scale here is the bulbous body. Plus, if you have him in that chair he ‘stands’ even taller.

    Kid wanted the Shockwave Lab LED kit, so got it. Yeah, main issue is that it will not light up the eyes, and only one of the faces is entirely lit up (Wisdom). The other faces are lit up from the nose down. I do, however, like the magnet switch LED gimmick a lot that I may try to retrofit some of my custom LED work with them.

    I had a proper screwdriver (philips #0 with tip sanded down to avoid stripping screw head) and was able to remove the all the heads just fine to install.

    I feel out of sorts with most of you, because I never had any trouble getting my Quintesson together. Maybe I just won the lottery on QC.

    I'm not trying to brag here, it's just hard to understand the hold up when I had no trouble putting in Sr. Angry-pants (aside from hisbhorns being a bit sharp while I was snapping it into place, thank God this wasn't a third party or there would have been blood)

    My theory on the red Quint head...you have place the head in its proper side. I was struggling to put the red Quint head beside the Fu Manchu Quint head but no go. I switched over to the other empty side (removed the other) and bingo it snapped on.

    I just got this guy in from BBTS. It is so fucking stupid. I love it. I had to heat up one of the tentacles to bend it into a more upright position, but it’s all good now.

    I just got this guy from Best Buy (the last regular retail ER figure I needed). I got him out... prepared to rage on putting the red face on...

    And it snapped on pretty much instantly. Well, that was anti-climactic. Dude's pretty cool, at least now my Quintesson collection is looking complete. Transformation, I heard some snaps, though it seems nothing broke. Kinda gonna be wary about that. But I like the dude. Shelf presence is immense.

    I actually had little issue putting the red face on. The tab at the top is a bit tricky but with a little umph it went in and snapped on securely

    Are people keeping the Judge in movie order or TV order? Movie order is stock: Death, Wit, Doubt, Wrath, and Wisdom. TV order (5 faces of Darkness) swaps Wrath and Wisdom and swaps Doubt and Wit: Death, Doubt, Wit, Wisdom, and Wrath.

    My Pit of Judgement Quintesson is in Movie order while my single Voyager is in TV order. Convenient having two of these guys.
