    Ouch, I did a similar thing years ago trying to repaint TF: Prime voyager Starscream into Skywarp. I soaked the translucent pieces in alcohol for about a minute and when I took them out they crumbled to pieces in my hands. Haven't had the resolve to try again since.

    Well, now you have arm replacements for Barricade.
    There's always a bright side.

    Probably better off using 1000 grit sandpaper on painted translucent plastic and a wash in warm soapy water.

    Sorry that had to happen, but unfortunately translucent plastic and rubbing alcohol hate each other...

    Am I glad this didn't happen to my Barricade when I removed some silver paint splashes off his leg. Same technique: 99 % rubbing alcohol plus cotton swab.

    Can't you just glue the pieces back together with some superglue?

    What Kind of alcohol did you use? o_O 

    My clear plastic parts have never broken. Even when I soaked them in it.

    That is what mine is, I didn't know how to spell it.

    Probably because a perfectly good prowl crumbled to pieces.

    But now you have some spare parts for customs. And I really like Barricade. The colors suit the alt mode so darn well. And if you swap the arms I think Prowl's upper arm badges will look great on Barricade.
