    The white is a mixture of white and blue. I’ll get back to you soon, since I’m quite busy, but I wanted to let you know I saw this at least. Sorry about that.

    Are you missing the ratchets/willing to take this thing apart?

    Sorry, I probably won't be able to get the paint match for a while, I'm pretty busy recently and paint and winter aren't exactly the best of friends :p  sorry about that. I'll let you know once I get this.

    Very strange... If you're willing to, may you take it apart again and take some pictures? If it's still strange, I guess I you can DM me and I'll try to work things out.

    Don’t worry about it, I’m pretty good mixing paint, I guess I was just wondering if there was a straight out the bottle match.

    I did a clear coat of pledge on some of the vulnerable areas like yellow crotch bits and grey ribs after seeing some stories of paint scratching. This is a super helpful thread!

    How long do you think it takes a clear coat of pledge to cure completely?

    I don't use pledge, but just to be safe, I'd recommend perhaps 2-3 days just to be safe. A week if you're feeling especially patient. Glad this thread is of use!

    Weren't you the one who was gonna open Prime on Christmas day or was that someone else?

    Sorry if I missed anything about it in this thread, but has anyone figured out a way to permanently fix Prime’s loose waist? While mine doesn’t seem to be worsening, it still bugs the hell out of me. (Just for clarification I’m talking about the joint right above his abdominal tilt, not his loose hips.)

    I'd like to know this, as well! But by waist, you do mean the actual waist, not the hips, correct?

    I’ve heard a bit about wrapping string around the joint to tighten it up, but I’d like to see if we, as a community, could think of any more elegant and long-lasting solutions! From looking at the waist, I can’t think of anything except for re-pinning the joint. But I hope there’re better solutions waiting to be discovered!

    I have been attempting to re-pin the waist, although it may risk weakness of the joint if you mess up real bad, so I'm just looking into it whenever I got the time.

    I saw TE thread.
    Apparently there seems to be a problem?
    Can you post an image of that part?
