Count me among those who are disappointed at the lack of paint. The fact that some parts seem to have metallic flake puzzles me. Why didn’t they do all of the black plastic that way? I have MP-10B, who will be in alt mode in my display. Maybe I’ll try to hit it with gloss coat one of these days. I did have one minor issue with my copy, on the left leg. The swivel pin/mushroom peg where the outer leg/cab door panel assembly connects to the ankle area was misshapen. Almost like it had mold flash/residual on it. As such, it popped out of the slot while I was transforming it. I had a heck of a time getting it back in, as it would not slot in without spreading the slotted u-shaped piece wider on one side. I had to trim some plastic off of the peg to get it back in the slot. It’s pretty loose now as a result, and will probably come out again in the future. In fact, I may need to Future it to tighten it up.
