    I'm about to buy a 2010 Predaking, I'm just wondering if there are any issues with the gold plastic like the G1 Euro/AU exclusive Con jets and Transmetal Megatron?

    The G1 jets I had as a kid broke very quickly, I remember one of the gold canons disintegrated in a month or two. And TFwiki said that TM Megs was even breaking right out of the packaging.

    I thought I read somewhere (or maybe it was another member who said it) that Hasbro had corrected the GPS issue. But... don't take that to the bank. lol

    There is no such thing as Gold Paint Syndrome.

    He's fine. He'll be fine forever.

    Unless you throw him.

    Do not throw Predaking.

    This! He is very heavy and could potentially cause lethal injury!

    How about Leader Class ROTF Starscream?, like the big parts that form all of his abdomen where it joins the legs and the torso?, will those suffer from GPS on the long run?, or are they not the type of plastic to suffer from it?.
    Thanks for the replies

    I do believe you're right. I remember reading the same thing somewhere. I think it was when there was some worries coming about with leader movie starscream.

    Pretty certain Predaking's gold is paint. Especially considering how much of it is metal! Damn thing could be used to defend against a home invasion of some kind.

    As for Leader Starscream, I haven't heard of any problems and don't have any with my one. As has been said, I'm pretty sure GPS was fixed. I've read it several times.
