    Yeah ordered via SAL to Poland, it was only 580 yen, so 6780 total. Made me realise just how much value you get out of a masterpiece Transformer of this type compared to a similarly priced Figma.

    Paint started chipping nasty at the face of my Targetmaster Hot Rod. Anyone recommend any good touch up paint? Buy in the states or Japan?

    I may buy a second for displaying. Transformed the crap out of him.

    The damage.

    Nah. From playing with it a lot. Transformered over 25 times at least. Got it since release. It’s a fun figure.

    Get some tamiya white and tamiya black acrylic mini paint pots and mix until you get the right colour, then dab it on with a brush.

    Toy-fan that you are I would've expected you to paint Firebolt's face red ;) 

    That is what I shall be doing with mine, who has now been ordered at long last! With Hot Rod, I think I'll try and remove the white from his pelvis, the pink from his helmet, and possibly the paint from his shins, but I'll wait to see how he looks in hand. Eventually I'll pick up MP-28 and swap windshields between them, too.

    I look forward to finally having MP Firebolt in toy colours, and to appreciating the Hot Rod mould properly (not worrying about chrome, or looseness). I'll report back at the end of the month!

    To those of you who have regularly handled this figure:

    Have the arms loosened up in robot mode under the weight of Firebolt in gun mode?
