    I tried for the brown raptor with black paint but didn’t get it. Got outbid by a $1. I got the brown raptor with brown paint. It says hand paint but upon looking at the pics again it might just be a normal production version.

    I'm definitely interested in seeing pics of the brown one compared to retail and if there are any differences. I ended up with the paint master and the black stripes ones.

    This is the extent of the comparisons I took of the black stripes v retail release. The pink plastic is a bit more vibrant (and less pale) and the head paint is darker and more glossy.
    Black stripes/early deco on left, retail on right:

    The paint master, was a total surprise. The tail and sword are from test shots (black tail, sword molded red) the body is resin. Hyper detailed.

    Weighed them on a food scale.

    Snagged a couple more variants of the previous Star Saber minicon prototypes! Will pop some more pics up once they arrive! received_409498190810679.jpeg

    Looks like its likely theres a full set in the orange, the yellow, the purple and the blue so, as others theorised, id imagine they were tests for the transparent plastic colours.

    oh, I bought that AoE optimus Test shot for like super cheap (Like $22 USD) I painted it and sell it, sadly I didn't keep any decent photo, but I got creative with the chageable face gimmick so it has the "nemesis prime" red mark and purple eyes when the mask was on, and no mark and blue eyes when the mask was off
