    Thank you! It hasn't aged well artwork wise. What was the title? Just 'Prey'?

    Nice! And same question. Are those Ikea Billy bookcases with glass shelves and doors? I'm thinking about getting one.

    I know it's probably been asked about and discussed repeatedly, but among the recent MP releases (Hot Rod, Ironhide, Ratchet, Shockwave), what chrome parts are in need of future polish treatment?

    As a bonus, are there any parts on any Fans Toys releases (regular versions, not the X releases) that could also benefit from it?

    If there's another thread dealing with this already, direction to it would be appreciated.

    Also protect the paint surrounding the four chromed headlights on the IH/R mould. Paint chipped on the corners of mine for no other reason than shoddy manufacturing.


    I own three of FT's Dibots which have lots of chrome coverage. No issues with it whatsoever, even with Server which through it's transformation requires the chrome to be robust.

    I've owned Scoria and Soar (so glad I sold them off) and Scoria's tail chrome chipped just after a few transformations. Also Soar was stripping paint (not chrome) on every transformation.

    Hello everyone!

    First I want to say that I am enjoying all of the great pics you are contributing to this thread!

    I just wanted to pop in and add a reminder to note the rules in the first post, and make sure that the focus of your pics are official Has/Tak Masterpiece Transformers.

    Photos that contain only 3P subjects will most likely be removed.

    If you have awesome pics that focus on 3rd party MP figures, you should feel free to contribute here: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...39900-3p-masterpiece-appreciation-thread.html

    Thank you!

    Anecdotally I'd say your figures were the exception, not the rule.

    Plenty of shared issues have been raised about the Dibots, chrome and paint chipping aren't amongst them.

    No, every Soar figure suffered from paint chipping and scratching during transformation. It was poorly designed. Anyway back to chrome coverage, yes they're better applied over recent MP's.

    Huh. My Soar has perfect paint and chrome, as do all my FT Dinobots; and after several transformations I might add.

    I sure wish Takara would learn how to do chrome like FT.

    Hmmm,

    The query was probably made in the wrong place but it deserves to be answered honestly and not in the infantile tone of the tag line you have below your username.

    From owner feedback there is no pattern of chrome chipping on the Dibots.
