That's a wierd little hinge remake that as soon as I saw it I was instantly happy.
That latch fixes 90% of what I hate about the pots; the damned lid won't stay open! I have to stuff a flying base stand or a chopped bit of spru in the hinge to be able to use the pot as intended. This little clip fixes that, and that is awesome.
Also, the pots now have a sort of seal on then, which is really great for knowing when you buy a pot it doesn't have any paint missing. Also, though I've never ordered paint, I know a very common problem was that they would rattle open in the box and the pot would be wasted. Not any more!
Now sadly the new style of pot only seemed to be on the washes...uh I mean shades. I saw a few..um..layers with the new style but majority of the rack was the old style. I imagine GW is going to try to use up the billions of old style pots before they start using te new so I'll be holding off any more purchases until I can get them in the new pots. If they aren't in squeeze bottles at least this is a little fix that I can get behind. I love their paints: I just hate the pots.
