    Did you repaint all of the purple? Or does the chest color match the purple that well? If so, I'd love to know the name of the paint as I have some scuffs on mine I'd like to repair

    I painted the whole thing blue. Wanted more of a purpleish blue but this was the closest colour I could get.

    I needed the replacement chest because I got blue paint on the abs of the original.

    @MajinSint I know I am busting your balls here but.....: How you dealt with the pins?

    I have a backlog of at least 5 customs and I dont start them due to the damned pins....
    Or he doesnt have any?

    No worries!

    I knocked the pins out but I don't think there were many. Be careful doing it though, I tried to knock a pin out of my MT Thundercracker and the plastic broke where it was so tight (easy glue fix luckily).

    I knock them out with a small puncher and light hammer. Put the piece on some play dough, blutac or something like that and knock the other end.

    If its not budging, try the other side. If still nothing at all and you're hitting it fairly hard, I'd say leave it in case something snaps!

    If they come out okay, they go back in just fine. Just make sure they come out rough surface end first and go back in smooth surface end first. The rough end of the pin grips to the plastic.

    If you start knocking the pin out and the surface is smooth, knock it back in and push it back to the other way, otherwise the rough ed will pass through the whole plastic and widen it.

    Hard to explain but if that doesnt make sense, youtube knocking pins out and there's a few vids that show it.
    Hope that helps.

    Very likely a difference in lighting between this photo and the room you're in. Purple is hard to photograph with 100% accuracy like that. (I paint models for a living)

    Youre right, the product looks more purple than blue..id have preferred the blue. We might get grey in 2020 if we're lucky, and maybe blue in 2022.

    Wrong company. This is fans toys not xtb. That said it seems like sovereign there has a different matte paint job rather than the actual metallic one

    Hahaha! What? Ft is using another 3p's unreleased figure in their product shot even though they've already done their own version? I really hope that was meant as a joke - the pic is of sovereign.

    It'll probably be a while. The last reissue was only a few months ago. It went pretty quickly though, so I'm sure ft knows there's enough demand to do another sooner or later.

    I haven't heard anything from fans. You may need to ask dalianjj to find out for sure.
