    Eat? I don't know if that is the right word, I'd say sticky, they are non slip because of the grip. But yea over time the paint will stick to the mat and there for come off the figure. This does not happen in a day or weeks but a month or better in the same spot yea, could do some paint damage.

    Which ones did you go with? I got the wu ones awhile back and they definitely need paint to match up. But they turned out nice after some paint and a few coats of future so they fit a bit more snug.

    Loves me some Ultimate Warrior!

    Anyways I think they were the Wu set they came with 3 different missile heads. Sucks to hear I'm going to need to paint them, so I'll be getting rid of them then I'm not going to try and play that color match game.

    Hey, don't be stealing off me! I'll send my muscle after you, she looks like the girl in my avatar and you don't want that.

    RIP Ultimate Warrior! Sad to see that he was at Wrestlemania on Sunday, Monday Night Raw on Monday and the guy was dead yesterday. Life!

    its not that bad surely, you could always get an mp01 or later version and get a can of gold chrome and strip it down and go to town on it.

    Well put. I don't want my figures to feel like they're destined to sit in a museum for eternity. As soon as I get a box in the mail, I open it up as fast as possible. Speaking of which....

    To my utter excitement, I got MP-11 yesterday from BBTS (open box) but the description said he was in good nick with nothing wrong, collector's coin included. Sadly he did not come with his coin, nor did he have his right leg tail fin. I emailed BBTS yesterday hoping they can send me the missing parts as I did not get what I ordered, or get a refund. Still no word from them. :(

    Aw, man! Well, if they don't fill your request, would you consider trading your MP-11 instructions and character card for my MP-11 coin? It's in the little cardboard card holder, never taken out. Let me know, Spoozy!
