    Just like the title says. What is a glaring flaw that only you can see on an otherwise perfect Transformer?

    Maybe you dropped it and scuffed one spot. Maybe right out of the box they forgot paint on one unnoticeable side panel. Sticker or chrome wear...

    Right now standing on the shelf is my G1 Blitzwing and his left foot/plane wing is crooked due to age and being loose, and the robot slightly leans. Now you might not notice but to me it stick out like sure sunshine.

    My Seige Bluestreak has a imperfection in the clear plastic of the front windshield, can't be fixed. Looks like a bright white spec of dust.

    My PotP Sludge has two left shoulders in robot mode.
    Doesn’t affect transformation. It’s all grey so it’s not that obvious/ noticeable to others but it’s all I can see when I look at him.

    My potp Grimlock is missing pain on one side of his mask. It just looks like a sharp shadow

    My POTP Outback's chest paint app is slightly too far to the left. Sometimes it bugs me.

    Is it plastic stress? You might be able to fix that or at least make it slightly less noticeable with a hair dryer and slowly (SLOWLY!) heating the plastic up.

    The red in the right wing of my siege Thundercracker has extra blotches of red that splashed upward. His was in the right to fire the painter in Kaon....

    Also, my Siege Ultra Magnus has an extra bit if white in his windshield that looks like a bird had his time.

    No I think it is some bubble in the plastic, it is just a white dot, it isn't is on the surface? It isn't very noticeable form far away, but unclose you can see it. Maybe heat can fix it? I'll give it a try.

    My G1 Brawn has 2 left arms. I did it because it was missing an arm and I had a spare, but it was another left. It looks fine in robot mode, but it doesn't transform flush. Nobody notices when it's displayed...but I know.

    Siege Sixgun has a white spot on his head.

    Siege Mirage has a silver dot on his head.

    Paint is chipping off my siege Magnus' shoulder stacks

    Silver paint chips ALL over my POTP Slag's legs.

    My TR Arcee has a missing paint application for one of her headlights. I thought it wouldn't bother me because I don't usually care about the paint, but it bothers me a little.

    I've loved my Generations Drift to death so the paint along his windshield is chipped to hell and back.

    Siege Thundercracker. Had some extra plastic flash on the both eyes on the side closest to the bridge of the nose, it looked like he had eye boogers lol. Had to remove the head (was doing the head swap w/Starscream) but I had to split it open, go in there with an. X-acto blade to remove the excess plastic while being careful not to scratch off any silver paint.
