    Yep, mine had that problem. I used black sharpie and a layer of acrylic floor polish as a temporary measure until I can repaint it.

    I've been carrying my Motormaster around and transform him pretty regularly. Unfortunately, he's now got some paint wear on the smokestacks. Is there something you can put on there so there's no further paint wear (don't care about repainting it, just don't want any more paint to rub off)?

    happened to me when transforming. i thought because i scrapped it with the hood, but i'm now thinking it's just poor paint adhesion as this reviewer also mentions loosing paint on the windshield of DeadEnd in his video:

    Magic Square Pillage/Contain Legends Dead End and Dragstrip Reviews

    EDIT: @Nems the reviewer chimed in. ;) 

    i ended up doing my best to touch up the paint and i'm relatively okay with it. but if this becomes a more common issue, i might reach out to see if i can get a replacement. would appreciate an update if you do manage to get a replacement sent.

    I'll probably end up stripping and re-painting it myself, but it just really pisses me off that I would have to do that in the first place. ESPECIALLY right out of the box. If there are others with the same problem, I'm guessing it was an error with a portion of the production run when the clearcoat was applied and the windscreen was skipped. I don't have high hopes of TFSafari sending a replacement but I'll wait to see their response and report back when I have an update. At the very least, I'm going to ask for a partial refund.

    Toy mode is finally done. I have been measuring, calipering, modelling, 3D printing, painting, measuring again, cricuting, and seeing this crap in my sleep for a couple weeks now. I need a vacation.

    I don't associate redecos with MS like I do Newage, but I wonder if they'd consider toy-based retools of the cars.

    I'd be all-in on another set of toy-accurate and G2 toy-accurate ones. I'm really enjoying these little guys.

    I transformed dead end today. And one of the elbow joints is frozen. Consequently, the car won't tab together fully because I can't get the arm fully straight.

    I got brave and decided to soak in boiling water for a few seconds. Now it's moving. I just hope the pins don't rust.

    I had the exact same issue. Very frustrating and after I worked on it for a little bit, I started getting nervous and just gave up.

    Use silicon oil! That's how I fixed my Deadend and all the stuck joints of my toys.

    I've noticed it is a must have with harder plastic and ball joints, everything just moves better

    Same issue on mine. He's in semi-permanent combined mode now so hopefully it doesn't get any worse.
