    I'm actually kind of surprised they did not include the grey tubing that was used to hide Baker's legs as they went into R2's feet.

    ...true,....shouldn't be to hard to scratch them up,.....R2's Copex socks:D

    My kit arrived this morning

    ...so many, tiny parts

    I am definitely going to pre-paint as much as I can,....the silver spirally decals/stickers that go around R5's head will benefit from being attached before assembly.....Im also considering adding lights to R2's head

    Received mine today,closer inspection of the head halves (without reffering to instructions) seems they just clip together,female/male type connection.possible to fill the head seams and paint it chrome,then paint all the little bits to fit in the head after and carefully fit into the head.room there for LEDs and space in body for batteries,fibre optic here some clear painted parts there,biddabing biddabong!

    Can't any of these companies figure out how to make a seamless dome?

    This is a big surprise as the old MPC kit, which was bigger, had a one piece chrome dome with inserts.
