    mines out for delivery after it's couple day cross country drive from San Fran to Iowa.

    I can say the knees are definitely the weakest part of an otherwise nice bot. the paint is a little muddled on the blue part of the engine cover, but it isn't super noticeable and the roll cage didn't explode as soon as I touched it, lol. of course you have to fiddle a little bit to get the rear tires to sit square but not a huge issue either. all in all, save for the knees it's a pretty nice setup.

    Hasbro or Takara would be doing everyone a sold if they slip the green deco of the Legends one into a future line some place.

    Metallic green over Dark blue is hardly an ideal custom base to start with.

    I had to do a double-check to see if there was an exclusive that I had missed, because that's damned gorgeous looking. Factory fresh. Great job.

    Thanks!I used chrome pens to apply a layer of chrome, left that to cure for a few days then Tesla enamel green metallic paint. It is slightly translucent so works nice on the chrome.
