    ... the lack of it, rather... he doesn't look bad for a straight repaint of Thundertron, but I kinda wish they hadn't given him the gammy leg?... and there's something in me that screams for a more Prime/Primal looking head, but I haven't found one that fits properly yet...
    Paint instead of arms micron decals... with a fair amount of detail touch-ups to the forearms. Sword arms micron is completely repainted, but do yourselves a favour guys? be careful when you're painting im?... plastic feels a BIT soft, and after spraying mine, one of the arms snapped, so... exercise caution please if you wanna use sprays...

    [edit] and I realized after I took the photos that I didn't transform the feet properly... the red panels by the side should rotate up and backwards... /sighz...

    Ebay:
    a SUPER strong glue that Ive found works wonders is Devcon Plastic Weld. Its a 2 part epoxy, and you dont need alot, its super strong. You can get it at Aces Hardware if you have one near you(idk how widespread the chain is). Ive broken some of the PE "cassette" bots arms off at the ball joint, and used this stuff on it, and its as close to being new as can be expected.

    Thanx. :)  Shall go look it up. Sounds pretty promising. XD


    Tamiya spray paints?... I've noticed the metallic colours tend to cause this more often than the other colors... maybe it's the solvent...
