Just wondering, any of you guys that own this figure realises after transforming it, the blue paint on a piece connecting the waist to the body will chip off?

I don't have Horsimus, but I had the same complaint about the original Hasbro version.
That's normal, since it's a painted piece of diecast that is constantly under stress.

It's completely out of sight in both modes, so I'd hardly be bothered about it.

It's FunPub. It's their specialty.

I'm a killjoy, and proud of it!
don't take that to mean I'm a killjoy just because I can be, though...
