    I realize the Siege toyline's use of paint apps to simulate dirt/weathering/grunge is not exactly universally liked, or very popular at all, but which toy (or toys) do you think made the best use of it?

    My nominee would be Springer. It's not my favorite Siege toy, but I think the weathering effects are very well done - pretty consistent and actually looks a lot like when a real metallic object has its coating of paint worn away with activity.

    For worst Siege Paint, I'll go with the Tetrajet Seekers, not because they're THAT bad really, but because it's mostly random spatters done EXACTLY the same way across seven different versions of the mold.

    Megatron's battle damage worked for me, although I'd like to add a bit more.

    It was least intrusive on Prowl and Sideswipe I think. So I pick those two.
    It isn't very noticeable on Skyfire either.

    Honestly, I wish they'd just stop with it. If I want special effects on my TF's I'll paint them myself.

    Hound, it's spread across bot mode quite well, and it is partly hidden in alt mode so it doesn't look out of place.

    Skyfire's was subtle, using a gradation on the lower legs. I really like that.

    Best use of it? Gotta be Jetfire and Omega Supreme.

    [​IMG]

    Worst: The Seekers, Optimus, and Megatron. It's just distracting on them in a way that it isn't for Jetfire and Omega, IMHO.

    I have to agree with @Feralstorm . Springer's battle damage paint looks the most like a metal bot that has seen a few scrapes, rather than one that stepped in or flew through silver mud....

    Smart aleck response would be any of the micro masters or special edition releases without battle damage paint.

    Omega Supreme's application is interesting, especially around the port holes.

    Refraktor
    All the Datsuns
    Mirage
    Brunt
    and anything smaller than a deluxe doesn't have war paint.

    That is true, wave one had the most and probably the best applied aswell.

    I know that he hasn't been widely released yet but so far I'm going to say Apeface takes the cake for the battle damage effects, Springer being a close second.
