I was revisiting some of my lesser handled TFs this weekend and I opened a couple of Beast Machine boxes that were kept in storage for the past 5 years. I was shocked to see my Mega Jetstorm's beautiful chromed paint cracking and peeling. The vac chrome has turned brittle and falls off with the slightest touch! I vaguely remember seeing a thread about this a long time ago, but didn't realize the severity of the problem. Other figures are suffering from the same problem - Blastcharge, OpOp and others. I find it odd that the chrome on other TF lines, like old G1 and G2 figures stood the test of time, but chipped on BM toys. It almost looks like the chrome doesn't adhere well to the type of plastic used on Beast Machine molds, I dunno. Still, this was a grim discovery. Not sure what can be done to stop the process.
