    Oohh I'm gonna co-sign the folks asking what specific colors you used (Montana Gold has a LOT of orange hues), along with how you mixed colors from two rattle cans.

    I feel like I'm gonna be picky about color match as well and this looks good enough to me.

    I'm not sure how long they lasted or how many extra they got but Robot Kingdom has sold out at the $1500 pricepoint.

    i sprayed the darker orange as a base after a white primer and then lightly dusted the lighter orange over it and it blended itself well.

    I'm sorry, but I can't remember if you've mentioned it before: are you going to be selling the files for these?

    Montana GOLD is a lacquer-based acrylic paint. I’ve had lacquer absolutely destroy the modern plastics used in Transformers lately. Not all of them, but enough that wouldn’t go anywhere near Unicron with such paint.

    well it is a good thing that montana also releases their colors in a water based can line and markers as well.

    so that wont be an issue moving forward for those that might be worried about that.

    i have had no problems what so ever using these paints. the montana paint brand has a very low odor when painting so it leads me to believe that it is not that hot to begin with.

    what brand of paint did you use that gave you issues if you dont mind me asking? for future references it would be nice to know and stuff.

    also a good primer will keep the paint from reaching the plastic surface.

    it should be fairly easy. they are a global mega brand when it comes to spray paints. basically the top of the food chain. think of them as the "air jordan" of aerosol paints. everyone wants them and they have a vast global network to supply the masses.

    any big art store or graffiti shop should carry their full lines.

    This is more of an improvement/upgrade rather than a fix.

    The way Hasbro Pulse works you will likely get shipping notice 2 months after it is delivered. Do not be surprised if it is already in transit & you have no clue.
