Potential TakaraTomy Generations Ratbat QC Issue

Postby TaZZerath » Tue Jul 16, 2013 12:22 am

Hi collectors,

This is a heads-up to those who are eagerly awaiting the Generations Ratbat figure from TakaraTomy (a repaint/remold of the Generations Scourge figure).

After eagerly awaiting his arrival, 'Senator' Ratbat arrived today, and after transforming him into his bomber alt mode I noted a paint application issue on 'his' left cockpit window side; namely, the black border for that particular section (which would also become one of his feet) is missing completely, leaving it all purple.

From what I've seen elsewhere (including Seibertron.com's own Ratbat gallery) this isn't a running production issue but those who are ordering him should probably be aware.

Paint issues are more common than you'd think. Nothing to loose sleep over, really. At least we don't. :)
