    I'm very much interested in painting those dead eyes a nice blue - any tips on how to do it and what kind of paint is best?

    Did that on mine, also removed the silver on the legs and have bear plastic like it should have been. Waiting to get my parts to post pics, but the new post office system down here is playing musical chairs with it. It was at my local post office 2 days ago but due to the new postal ineptitude rather than showing up the next day like it used to, they sent it to another location. Our mail has been known to be up to a week late or more thanks to this new system they initiated in the last couple months. Caused one person I know to be late on their bill and they almost had their water and power shut off.

    Have a lot more painting to do to get it to where I want it, with the arm broken didn't feel like going too far, but this will work till I have more time. May do some more paint work this weekend.

    Was this ever discussed? When I first got my copy I noticed that the front feet were not quite even. Could not see what the issue was. Then I transformed it and same issue. The 2 sides were not the same so I thought maybe this was the case of 2 left parts or the like. So I took the piece apart. There are 2 raised areas underneath the diecast feet that make the front foot bottoms misalign. 1 foot has it the other does not. It needs to be shaved off to bring them into balance.

    What's everyone using for a faction symbol? My white cartoon outline from Toyhax doesn't seem large enough.

    What did you use to remove the silver from the legs? I'm looking for a safe way, one that does not affect the plastic, to do the same!

    A skin safe adhesive remover. A doctor friend I used to have at a comic store neither of us go to anymore (Cause it closed) who was a hobbist let me know about them. Said he found out by accident that it removed paint pretty well when he was cleaning off spray adhesive from a patient and it also took off some paint he had on the area, You can also get bottles of it.
    I often use it to clean plastic paint trays and my sink after I forget to clean up after a paint job and parts dry.
    It works easily on most plastics, but you want to clean up or wash off the areas you applied it to after the paint comes off with water, on some plastics if left on for too long it will crack or weaken the plastic. (basically several hours not minutes in most cases) I don't recommend it for thin clear parts. For this figure I've had no cracking or issues and the silver came right off after leaving it on for under a minute and scrubbing the wipe back and forth a little.

    @Louis did you get a card at all? I did my review last night (software error and have to re-edit after work tonight), I received a card but didn't pay attention to it much. ;)

    Yeah, the figure arrived intact. I guess I was lucky, considering that there have been several detached arms based on this thread.

    Sometimes in situations like this, where there are several breakages, it's really annoying to wait for the figure to arrive, because you don't know how your "gamble" will turn out, especially when the company is a fairly new for now. Therefore, it is much more reassuring to order something made by a company that has proven to be trustworthy and has a good reputation.

    Luckily it seems that Pangu Toys offers spare parts, so that's a good thing for those who need them. This is how it should always be, that there is a good solution to the breakdowns. In this way, Pangu Toys can succeed in gathering a good reputation.

    I just bought the decal set that was being linked a few weeks ago. It came with two pair, and I still have one. You're welcome to it on the free if you're:
    A)in the US, and
    B)patient, because I'm usually busy AF and can't always make the PO before they close.
