    Apoxie sculpt is my go-to. As for how to match the color...basic paint mixing and my eyes! :lol 

    That said, I've been thinking of possibly repainting all the yellow bits, so color matching might not even be an issue in the end.

    Edit: I'm also reasonably handy with a hobby blade, files, and sandpaper, so I could end up cutting a filer piece if I can find a similarly colored piece of plastic to put under the knife. That's what I did to fill the forearm gaps some of the NA Constructicons had.

    So I pre-ordered on Magic Square's site. Shows in stock but I have not got a payment request. Do I wait, or just purchase the in stock item? Anyone delt with this?

    Their method is kinda wacky. Pre-order is only as good for one free email when the item is ready. It doesn't reserve your spot, or give you the option of paying using the pre-order transaction #. When you get the email, you go their site, find the item and purchase normally. So you will be left with a "pre-order" item in your order list that you can't do anything with, lol.

    If it's in stock, you can just go pay. Much like some other stores, when they send you a balance request, it's simply just a link taking you to the item, nothing specific to do with your particular order, so paying when you see it's available just speeds up the inevitable rather than waiting on their emails.

    That's ridiculous. The whole point of a pre-order is to secure a place in line. If it doesn't do that, then why bother at all?

    You should have gotten a payment request at least a few days ago. Check your spam folder?
    You would get an email that asks you to purchase through the provided link. But I think it just gives you advanced notice that it's ready to purchase vs. having to keep checking on their site that it's in stock.

    Having said that, the provided link in the email MIGHT actually fulfill a reserved spot for you. It just LOOKS the same as if you were to just go to the site and purchase from there normally.
    How we would know it's NOT a special link attached to your specific pre-order invoice number? Using that provided link has always corresponded to my pre-order number.

    I checked it by going to the item on it's own and copying the link, then compared it to the link sent in the email and they are the same.

    ah, so it just gives people a headstart.
    Wait a sec though, how does it then get linked to my pre-ordered invoice instead of just appearing as a new purchase with a new invoice number?
    The one in my 'orders' section?
