Botched paint jobs - What's the worst ones you got?

Good morning all,

I got this figure earlier this week off eBay, and I know it's not supposed to look like this.They missed the silver on one of his legs and they messed up his eye. (a particular pet peeve of mine.) Easily my least favorite Titans Return figure I own. Anyone else get paint jobs this bad? Share your shameful abominations!

Re: Botched paint jobs - What's the worst ones you got?

My most annoying paint errors are (no pics):

- MP Red Alert + (Anime edition) - big chunk of paint was missing on a foot. Ended up re-selling and buying a new one later, I just couldn't stand the unevenness in robot mode. I should've gone through TT customer support since I bought it from TT Mall directly but I thought I could live with it, and I couldn't.

- TF Unite Defensor - Red Alert has a thick scratch or missing paint on his face mask. This was bought from a reseller so I didn't go through customer support. Still bugs me. I should try and touch up/redo the paint on the face mask myself but I don't have steady hands. Maybe some day...

I had a deluxe Armada Prime with a grey unpainted face. Still have it somewhere.

My original "when I was a kid" G1 UltraMagnus, had a completely blue (unpainted) helmet head - I probably still have it kicking around in my old G1 bin

This might not be a botch job according to the wiki though; could be the "running change" version:

Originally, his tires were made of rubber and he sported paint on both his small and large robot heads, but this version was replaced with one featuring plastic tires and no paint on either head.
