Would you believe I actually had to look up the original FE to spot the difference?
I don't think it's as much as bad QC as a wrong figure being used as reference, which may explain why I didn't see it right away. I'm talking about Shining Optimus Prime
:Shining Optimus Prime on TFWiki
As you can see, no paint in exactly the same place. Yes, I do have him, and I'm not bothered by this "mistake".
Bulkhead's stress marks on the other hand are a bit more worrisome. I know stress marks can be limited, but when they completely surround the joint... Oye.
Yeah, they mention Shining Prime in that thread and the paint missing in the same spot. I don't believe this to be a QC issue with the paint. Every single one that has been opened is like this, so it's just the way it is I guess. Now, for me, I could pass that off on the Shining Prime since he's so spiffy all transparent like that. But for the regular painted mold release, nooo way. Looks like garbage. Like I said, I was thinking about adding another FE Prime to my cart, as I already have 2 that I enjoy very much, but with this paint app difference I'm simply going to pass. If I got him, I'd have to fix that for sure. And luckily I just don't need one that badly.
I am worried about my FE BH that's sitting in my POL though. Seems several have popped up already with the same stress marks.
