    That part is bare plastic, so a very fine abrasive like an emery board should do you. Or you could use a sharp hobby knife to scrape it if you're careful and take it slow.

    Why not a mild solvent like rubbing alcohol? wouldn't that be much less likely to mar the plastic surface like a file or knife?

    Yup, no need to use any kind of abrasive.

    Mine was from the original pre-order, and has been in "Processed thru Facility" status since Jan 8, according to USPS. Free shipping option. Should I worry yet or is it probably related to Chinese shipping issues?

    I got mine today ... finally!

    He is by far, one of the best Transformers figures I own, and the best satisfaction/in-hand-awesomeness that I have had in a looooong while.


    It's no secret I am getting tired of MP's... and with the recent poor reviews of GC's Prime; it solidifies my stance on not wanting IDW-MP figures.

    This line/size is perfectly fine for me and as usual voyager(+)'s feel fantastic in hand.

    Thank you MMC!

    Oops, yeah, alcohol would be best there. I was still stuck thinking about a different problem.

    Mine sat in a similar weird limbo till last Friday, then suddenly updated to Chicago with a Thursday expected delivery, which changed to earlier today (Monday) just as quick so...soon for you I would bet?

    In hand it's nice. Not mind blowing but nice.

    I kind of like how detailed the figures look and yet have a simple transformation. I purchased Spartan after reading the Wreckers. Making things complex for the sake of complexity does nothing for me.

    For instance. Fans Toys Galvatron is a bit complex to transform, but there is not way to get around this. It sometimes annoys me when transformers are overly complex so they can be seen as masterpiece. Masterpiece to me is the finish, do they clean up well in both modes, do you see the head all the time through the windshield in car mode, doe hands stick out the back of the jet and look awkward etc. I love how Tarn looks great in both modes but is not overly complex. Being able to keep things simple is it's own art.

    Yes.

    I agree with all of this.

    This figure is a masterpiece in its own right with what it accomplishes with what "little" he has.

    As you said, the simplicity of it is beautiful. He looks AMAZING and comic accurate/source material spot-on - and is able to transform back and forth within two minutes.

    You would think something like this would make one of the other mode look half assed .. but nope.

    He is definitely my current favorite figure within my entire collection.

    I planned to do the same thing and I don't see why not.

    Yes, but if you don't read the comics and see the Decepticon mask the Fallen is the first thing you think of.

    They beat me to it but yes, small amount of alcohol looks like it will work. Good luck!

    Really? I don't see it. My non-Bayformers recollection of the Fallen didn't have a Decepticons mask face, he was more like Nemesis Prime on fire.
