    [email protected] or PM dalianjj.

    Include pics of the damage and request the touch up kit with rubber pad.

    The adhesive rubber pad provides a "cushion" for the top of the hood in bot mode so that the paint chipping can be avoided.

    No Ebay. Mine came with the rubber pad already installed but the hood was still chipped. Probably from bouncing around during shipping.

    Mine too. I heard some horror stories regarding the touch up kit too so I didnt bother. My chip wasnt too noticable luckily.

    3D printed replacement shoulders with height adjustment. Still allows for transformation

    Anyone have any luck lately getting the touch up kit from Fanstoys? I contacted them about 7 weeks ago and they told me they would send it out but it could take up to six week . I have been trying to get in touch with them again since I never received it but they have not answered any of my emails. Any help would be appreciated
