It's actually a tweet back to tfw, but the body if the tweet is
I didn't realize this general discussion was that wide spread. (I need to get out more. hah).
Yes same general ideas, it look like.
A quick paint app is technically the most "complete" fix, but who will be the first to do it?...
ah. now this makes far more sense now as to why the change.
All the sudden the anger and rage I never had to begin with has left me and I suddenly feel peace and tranquility.
It has been discussed. Also discussed: painting the maw like the mock-up by @mechman22 here, which according to @Monari -- who has Unicron in hand -- would not run into any paint rub problems.
I'm not painting my Unicron. If someone offers a custom-painted piece that I could swap out I would consider that.
An understandable position.
I have no experience making molds, but I wonder if one could take out the piece, make a copy of it, custom paint the copy and install that in its place.
I was reading you post and almost swear you were gonna say copy and paste hahahahajajaja
I agree with all of these, this option would’ve been just fine with me! One paint app is all it would’ve taken. So disappointing...
I hope Hasbro commemorates this whole era by introducing a new faction of Unicron heralds called "The Blue Maw."
I foresee a Lucas film style 40th anniversary edit/release to Transformers The Movie, where the maw is blue. LOL
It’s nice to see everyone progressing appropriately on the Kubler Ross spectrum
We may be in the gray transition area to acceptance, but its still possible to regress at this stage.
*Not a backer, so I have no skin in this*
The blue maw doesn't really bother me. The unpainted lower teeth definitely do bother me, and while that is a pretty easy fix with a silver paint pen, I feel like making any sort of modification, no matter how small, to an expensive limited piece like this is a dicey prospect.
Same. I've said it before but I'll say it again because I want the idea to spread to someone who can actually make it happen: I think a third party could make a thin, plastic, fully removable cap piece to fill in between the teeth. I'd much prefer that to stickers which is the only other alternative for me.
If I may, for those who end up using the paint route, and assuming you find good success, would it be reasonable to ask to share the exact brand/color that you're using? I imagine that color match is going to be an issue for many, and getting clear instructions will be important to the less experienced.
I will never stop crying in my basement fortified by action figures!
I wonder if I could just cut out a piece of orange styrene to cover the blue. Attach it with blue sticker putty? Hard for me to say without having the toy in hand.
Yes, that is a valid concern most here likely have. Any unofficial "fixes" detract from a figure's perceived collectability, no mater how good it looks.
I think this is why the push to have HasTak "make things right" got started. Its not a hard fix from what we can see, but its going to cost someone somehow (HasTak $$, Fan $$, brand loyalty).
If there is anyone who is unhappy with this, especially if we have had dealings in the past, and is looking to sell their's please PM me. I had to pick between this and Snake Mountain.
