    You don't want your boobs to bounce when you're fighting, expecially if they are big enough to hit you on your face and knock you out.

    I just cracked open the Kingdom/Earthrise Optimus w/ trailer and WOW. Pretty simple transformation that I did with my eyes closed but it brought me back to that OG G1 prime. Bought me that Nonnef Trailer upgrade set to bring it up to speed.

    Just watched a review of Kingdom Cyclonus and realized his copy has painted chest parts in robot mode which are the air intake parts in alt mode.
    Turns out mine aren't painted but still looks pretty good. Basically my forearm and chest panels are the same colour. When I look back through the thread I don't see anyone else's with the non painted chest so maybe I got a one off.

    Compare with computron179's picture just below which is a better angle of the armpit showing his is painted. But look at mine it's bare plastic which matches the forearm/tail wing.

    OMG, than go on eBay and sell that thing! People are really weird. They'll buy that "rare" copy for like 100 $ or more, so you can go buy 3 Cyclonus or something else. You can feel super lucky. Happy for you

    Picture? as I'm confused... mine doesn't have any paint on the forearms nor the shoulders, and every pictures on this tread are the same as far as I know/seen.

    yup... it's the normal. the side parts that flip out are also different from the center core of the chest too, and so on... but it's very minor.. How I wish that Sunstreaker would have been like this.

    Note that some cameras are worst than others to capture colours correctly, and the lighting can make a big difference. Maybe that's it?

    Indeed now this is NOT Normal but don't think it adds value to it personally 20201209_083350.jpg totally agree with you on Sunstreaker and why I passed they just didn't do a good job .

    A few brushes of some grey paint on his face and BOOM! G1 excellence

    I can’t believe I had passed on this guy a dozen times before I bit the bullet.

    Go me an Optimus Primal, and he's fantastic!
    The white on his thighs and red on his knees is scraping off WAY too easily though. Is that happening to anyone else?

    Hey, what is the easiest way to open up the Leader Prime's head? I wanna give him yellow eyes but don't trust my hands to be steady enough to paint it as is

    See where the chest piece has the deception logo then there are moving chest parts (part of the transformation to fold out what becomes the wings and/or the armpit that's what isn't painted on mine) yours is painted mine was not I'll re-post a picture I put in from awhile back to clarify.
    I went back to the original post (1 page back) and inserted the robot picture to better clarify in the original post and computron179 nicely posted the painted version just two posts further down from that.
    I really don't think this add's any value but I am not really that kind of collector. THAT SAID, if someone wants to buy me 2-3 copies of Cyclonus for a straight across trade for mine. I have the original packaging and everything is in excellent condition. I'd happily trade 1 figure for more of the same! Though one nice thing I can think of having it not painted is that it will never chip paint when transforming, so that's nice.
