I was in a local Wal-Mart over the weekend and saw numerous copies of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine with a bad paint job. On the front bottom sides of his robe there are supposed to be a gold and teal design. The paint jobs I saw had a gold "squiggly" down the front with big bright teal dots on it. What made it worse is that it looked like the paint thinned and ran before it dried. I didn't pick one up so I don't have a photo. But if you look in the collectors data base, look at the areas below where his hands are crossed to get an idea of where the paint job was.

Anyone else see anything like this?

Nope. Luckily mine doesn't look too bad. It's ashamed that better-sculpted figures have to suffer with bad paint-jobs. Palpatine is one of the best looking figures to date.
