    If it really concerns you that much, just throw it under some hot water for a second and wash it. But not bloody likely, unless you've got mold growing elsewhere in your home which should be a greater cause for concern.

    I also noticed this slight paint blemish on his face. 088ACAD0-4996-4887-99C4-0340844F4021.jpeg
    Any way to fix this?

    Jesus Murphy, I just checked on my effects parts container since I was chucking Rodimus' ones in there, and I forgot that I hastily threw them into the same bin as some of my extras (mostly weapons) and one of the small purple effects from Firebolt took paint off of Arcee's monument to failure hoverboard.

    Gonna put all these effects in a ziploc bag. They're so not even worth the trouble.

    Kingdom Rodimus Prime's trailer can double as a military grade mobility scooter.

    I don't think you are doing anything wrong. I have the same issue. Check out TMan978's review at time stamp 7:25. He suggests that you have to flex the plastic a little bit to tuck the junk into the back of the calves...so I guess this is normal? I don't like the idea of flexing plastic for a transformation like this but it seems to be part of the design.



    LOL. Sweet. :D  :D  :D

    I think it's a huge overaction to sell the kid just to pay for the broken part.
    You just need to sell part of the kid to pay for the broken part.

    Anyone know a good match for the lighter orange paint used on the chest and collar areas?

    Not a big but yes, initially had the same issue tucking in the rear wheels. All flush now. Now don't get me started with the shoulder/arm wheels:confused:

    Just a quick repaint of Transformers Kingdom Commander Class Rodimus Prime’s face brings a much better look in my opinion. Softens up the harsh shadows the reflective silver was making, but still manages to bear resemblance to Clint Eastwood? 722F5F5B-78DC-474B-96C7-1CA73F0D060B.jpeg

    Yep, I posted this photo a few weeks ago. It's Rodimus holding POTP's gun (1/2 of it), as compared to the ridiculously long one that he came with.

    Nope. But initially, the panel on his left foot/shin wouldn't lock in place. I was tempted to use the floor polish fix but the panel has remained connected.

    Also, minute nitpick on Rodimus, the peg on his default rifle is too short yet he has those awesome finger articulation.

    Many thanks to you and the others who have suggested this grey repaint of the face. I’ve done mine as well. It’s a vast improvement over the stock silver.
