    :lol  *does sad dance too*

    ANyway, it wouldn't hurt to buy a gold marker and apply some of it on the nose, would it?

    Damn, for a repaint, Rollbar looks sweet... I wanted to keep it MISB since I already have Hound and Swindle. Might as well open it when I get it.

    principle of it all? First it was Skids' decals and window tint, now this?

    I know it's minor, it could be worse, but this is obviously ugly and Hasbro still went forward.

    No thanks, painting is Hasbro's job. I'm what you'd call a customer. *My* job is complaining on message boards. :D

    Looks like Rollbar is just like the test shots, unpainted in every way possible...

    Considering I had no interest in the Krylon Brothers I am ambivalent

    I love how every single person who is the first to get and photograph a picture ends up making these blurry Lochness Monster sighting photos. Is it a white nose? Is it glare from the lights? Where does the nose even begin and end?

    Not complaining, and I belive the nose is white....just saying. :D

    Could be a running change that was fixed really early on in the process. Not like that hasn't happened before in multiple lines.

    I haven't opened mine yet..given how early I found him, I'd wager mine has the cocaine nose job, though.

    Are gold sharpies even the same tone of gold as on Ricochet?

    I have no idea, but I think any gold will look better than the white...

    I've used the silver metallic Sharpies before and they did a great job on touch ups...
