But I can still look at it and feel some of the design choices belong more in Rescue Bots. I felt the same way as a kid when I'd buy TMNT, Power Rangers etc toys where lack of paint and obnoxiously signposted gimmicks got in the way of the toy.
Same here. I hated the Coin Chest look of the old MMPR figures and opted to cover it with white-out. Even did that to paint in the diamond pattern on the back. Don't get me started on the infuriating pushbutton action feature I had to settle for Cuz Yellow and Pink were impossible to find.
