    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.

    What gray paint did you guys use? Any specific brand or can a regular old acrylic paint from Walmart work for it?

    Can the head be taken apart to isolate the face or do you just have to be super careful? My hands aren't too steady....

    There is a screw in the back of his head. Super easy. I took his head apart just to see if I could. I'm thinking About doing an old man Rodimus from the end of Regen1 with yellow eyes

    Pretty sure Hotrods head is glued. Any amateur attempt could possibly damage him. Not sure what the appeal of baby face Rodimus would be. Now an older Post G1 cartoon Hotrod might be cool. The colors don't match

    Yes sir. You'd have to sand down the neck balljoint tho' on Kingdom Rodders. The neck itself fits but the ball is a bit too big.

    That head isn't really babyfaced, especially when compared to 86 Hot Rod.

    To me, he looks suitably mature but not ancient. And it's not glued, the head is connected together by screw only.

    I just got Rodimus from the mail, not sure if these paint drops are normal but sure feels like a premium figure and sturdier than ER Prime.
