    I just got this guy in last night and I must say I like him more than I thought I would. What I dont like is the joints that are cast in white. Xtb should have used the same green or grey plastic. Looks like I'll take him apart and add some paint.

    His windows should have been frosted blue... then those white shoulder joints wouldn't be as much of an eyesore.

    Why didn’t they just mold them in black in the first place?

    i tried that on their Trailbreaker. I used rubbing alcohol on the joints first to remove any mold release. Anyway, there’s something with the plastic that doesn’t take the paint well. I used Tamiya acrylic. Mating dying the parts would be a better solution.

    One of the wrists on my new Paean was so tight that the mushroom peg for his hand broke clean off rather than coming out. Very sad. And without those peg holes, the only thing to do for now (until I hear if I can get a part) is use some blue-tac and stick his gun on. :(

    I hear you. When I replaced Trailbreaker's hand with that gun, I was scared it could broke, so I left the gun there and will never remove it

    after 20 days of sitting at Tianjin City mine is finally on the move again, hopefully that means I may get to finally get my grubby little hands on it by the end of next week. Also, has anyone had this come up on the tracking: Tianjin City, Tianjin International Swap Bureau return, note: security screening return ? Pretty sure that's the first I've seen of that, hopefully this doesn't mean that the package has been totally trashed and everything inside is alright, don't want to deal with the whole shipping return thing...
