    I've transformed him a few times and haven't had that problem at all....i'm sure you casn go out and grab a paint market to fix him back up though!

    Just checked mine on my desk. Unless I was running him over a really uneven surface, his face can't come close to touching anything. The wheels are too tall. Maybe you did get something a little off...

    Mines not scratched, but I find it worrisome, I wish they had designed it to fold into the chest rather than how its done.

    I didn't roll my Prime around in alt mode much and don't plan to, really.

    The paint can come off fairly easy (especially when you roll him on an uneven surface), but also many have bad paint apps too. I hate that about him and the fact that his ab plate isn't really secure.

    I was worried about that too. But he's been rolling aroiund freely in a desk drawer for two weeks now, no paint rubbing off.

    I did find this same issue with Seaspray though, with the white plates that conceal his head in boat mode. Lost most of the paint on one of his forehead ridges.
