    Supposedly the chrome is anodized: Toy Scope - Timeline | Facebook

    Can't tell from the lighting, but if really looks darker like that, I actually like that quite a bit.

    Curious: Does anodizing affect the longevity of the chrome in a positive way? The issue with chrome is more than just fingerprints, though that is a big one when so much of the figure is covered in chrome so you can't really avoid touching it. The other part of the issue is that chrome tarnishes over time both from touching it (skin oil transfer) and from aging, which makes it hard to keep it looking good long-term unless you only handle it with gloves and seal it away in a dust-free box, which is basically removing any fun from the experience, and even then you can't be certain the chrome will stay as fresh as the regular paint over time. If the anodizing actually helps with that too, the figure could be handled and last a while without losing its visual appeal, which would be a positive.

    Had bought the figure and I would say no regrets. Loving it!!
    I had shot quite a number of photos and had posted in my FB page.
    But below photos posted are I'm excited about the figure as such allow me to flood the forum with photos. Armor up time!!

    Interesting. It looks like there are two different chrome treatments. The helmet, foot covers, and wings look lighter than the rest, unless the lighting is just deceptive. I wonder if that means some parts are anodized, and some not?

    He looks even better in these pictures than I thought. I didn't realize his helmet was a different colour in the original pictures with the black background either. His gun also looks to be the same silver colour, is that correct?

    Great photos, but unfortunately a pass due to the chrome.

    is only the colour. main armor is abit yellowish. Their 'degree of mirror' about the same so I assume should be the same treatment.

    Seeing that darker main armor really makes me think that if they'd gone with black chrome like Leo Dux's cannons, or even a gunmetal/dark gray color on the chrome, that would've looked hot as hell.

    I also just noticed that the armor is shiny enough that we can see your reflection in it.

    Btw, thread title has a typo. It's Prominon not Prominion. :)

    Its a safe bet to assume that MMC will do that, given their penchant for making recolors. Theyre halfway there
    with the core robot in the colors already. Im pretty sure the cradle and armor are already there but the focus is on the
    convention exculsive.

    So, how exactly do I buy this online, seeing as I can't make it to any conventions?

    Pick one:
    • You find someone here who is attending and will pick one up for you for a reasonable fee
    • You know someone at TFH who will sell you one
    • You wait for PlanetSteelExpress to post them under Convention Exclusives
    • You wait for local retailers to get a supply of them
    • You watch eBay for a listing that's not a total rip-off scalper price

    Ebay:
    Any word on another repaint that doesn't use the chrome? It's tempting me just for the core bot...but I want armor and I doubt the chrome will hold up forever.

    Any pictures of the white armor on him and the chrome armor on the original release?

    From the high-res images, it seems the chrome isn't even consistent in tone across all the chromed parts to start, and that will only get worse as it ages. MMC's been silent, probably hoping to sell this out first before announcing any sort of non-chrome armor set. I'm happy to wait to get something more reasonable and more Nemesis-like though.
