    PAINT missing off NOSE !!!! ARRRRGGGHHH

    Don't you just hate it !!!!

    You receive an almost perfect figure & there is some paint missing off the tip of your figure's nose !!!! ' cause its the way the factory packs them I guess. The nose ends up rubbing on the plastic case taking the paint off.

    IT pisses me off.

    Happened to 3 of my HT figures.

    Tried retouching the missing paint but never looks right, may have to learn how to repaint the entire head sculpt I guess.

    Any suggestions boys ???

    I had this happen with one figure, DML's Russian Naval Infantryman Dmitri. In that case, John and Liz at Atlantic kindly swapped heads with me. Many figures come with the protective collar that keeps the head from contacting the window. The only HT figures I have experience with are the SDU guys, who had their necks wired down, that seemed to work too. If the company's packaging is at fault, or they released a marred figure, then someone up the line from you should make it right. Esp. at the prices paid forfigures these days.

    I think Ali's correct, matching the paint exactly and feathering it into the unmarred area would be fairly delicate work, and not foolproof. That's my 2¢...

    You could always paint a camoflauge job on his face. Woodland warrior ready for war.... Ali is probably right though.

    I've had it happen too. I would like to know if anybody has a good touch up method that works.
