    Huh. Why didn't I think of printing a good scoop... Dang, now you made me want to go figure one out now.

    I would probably just use some epoxy.

    Taiho arrived today... just noticed that the order of the kanji is reversed on the right hand side...

    Only GT Foo Fighter/Hot Spot remaining and I think I'm done with the MP scale Autobot first responders.

    Thanks! I'm gonna try to find a city scape background to print out and use for a backdrop. And some clear risers or white steps for the back row of figures.

    Yeah, either Shibuya crossing or Akiba... something like this, but a cartoon illustration would be nicer.

    Awesome. I was thinking the same. :)  Just ordered this one and Clamp Down to update the roster. Bring on Hot Shot!

    Good idea. That's even easier.

    Edit: Do you have the file for your scoop or a link to it?

    Would love to see how it turns out. You can always use double sided tape.

    What exactly is wrong with the hood? Any comparisons pics?

    What jetpack is that for Clampdown? Does it fit securely?

    I think the comment about the hood is that the Honda Today that is used in the anime You're Under Arrest has the turbo scoop on the hood (which is missing from XTB's model).

    You can see the scoop here:
    KIDNEY, ANYONE? The actual Honda Today from You’re Under Arrest is for sale

    Also the jetpack looks to be MP-44 Optimus Prime's. But @Ichibaru can clarify it.

    It seems in Japan, the order of kanji can be either from left to right or right to left on police car.

    What's annoying is that it was going to be there as seen in the earliest Skids models. But like articulated hands, things were ruined.
