    the sound box on mine has a very horrible paint job and was wondering if anyone else has the same problem? it looks like someone got lazy and didn't want to finish painting it or something.

    Wow, that looks like crap... I remember a "run" of Darth Vader figures being the same... all the right shoulder armor pieces were barely painted... like the machine just quit! And they say robots will take over lol

    Looks like you sound box is crying from it poor paint apps.

    But I'd either say its a spotty job or it is supposed to be weathered. Sorry mine is upstairs and I'm too much lazy bastard to check and I'm on my way out the door.

    Wow yours looks horrible. Mine looks just fine. I did pick up my Prime right when they first came out, so maybe that has something to do with it if the crappy paint jobs for the voicebox are widespread.

    Mine also looks semi-bad, but I'm not angry. I'm just glad it has Cullen's voice trapped inside :)

    I don't feel so bad now that I'm not the only one with a bad looking paint job :)  I guess it's suppose to look that way.
