    Does anyone know what gold paint would match Grimlock or point me to a better thread to inquire? I had a keyboard cord resting against his toe, and it literally melted the paint and it bubbled off.

    Yikes! It’s good to know to NOT put any plastic cords near Grimlock’s paint.

    Regular gold is too bright. I used a custom mix to match my Grimlock’s gold. I added a tiny bit of brown to the gold paint to give it a slight dark mustard tone. You’ll have to play with the combo to get it right.

    How about it! I had him sitting on my work desk overnight and it did that. Thought I got something sticky on him and the paint was bubbled and rubbed right off. I then realized the paint was also stuck to the cord. Never had that happen but have heard of plasticizers eating through paint/plastic.

    Thank you so much. I tried mixing my own blend but it just kept looking like shiny baby shit.

    It sounds like plasticizers alright. It’s added to allow the cord to stay flexible. Before it was outlawed, lead was mixed into the plastic to maintain flexibility. We traded one evil for another. Lots of reports of the blast effects from the Siege line taking the paint off too, if you didn’t already know. They’re full of plasticizers to remain soft. Beware!

    You want the small pot of Tamiya X-12 Gold Leaf Mini Acrylic Paint - 10ml.

    Almost dry brush on rather than normal technique, build up 3 layers of dry brushing including over the wider area to blend.

    Then finish with a matt lacquer.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Looking at the color swatch, it seems too mustard (unless it is more gold in real life). Going to give the Pearl Gold someone else suggested a try first. Thanks again.

    This thing doesn’t even officially exist and it’s finished and far enough along in production that someone has one.

    With Studio Series completely absent from Pulse Fanfest are we to assume these are gonna be sitting in boxes in a warehouse till fall?

    It will be announced in May. They said during Pulse Fanfest that Studio Series would get announced at Fan Friday in May.

    I wasn’t planning on collecting all the dinobots but that sure looks good. I wonder what other chew toys(annoying little shits) they will attach with the other dinobots?

    I honestly thought the rest of the Dinobots would be smaller than Grimlock (similar to POTP), but wow! I'm so glad to be wrong. I cannot wait for the rest.

    Honestly, with the way the world is going right now, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised. That said, I'm sure they're producing and packaging them now and getting ready to ship them. I'm almost certain we'll see him before the Fall, especially over at CMDStore. If they do wait until the Fall, it could be due to lack of shipping space, padding the waves/stretching it out, or they're simply not ready, yet.

    Either way, we'll be seeing them sooner rather than later and we'll be complaining about his flaws in no time. =\
