    I was dusting my Ramage this morning and noticed that large piece of crome are flacking. Is the a common problem with the toy or not? I take great care with it. I donĀ“t let it caught sun and such. Is chrome flacking a common problem of TM and TM2 transformers?

    It's a very common problem for Transmetals.

    It really depends on the toy itself though... I've seen some that are flawless, and others that are basically chrome-less.

    Yeah the Transmetals have a bad possibility of flaking. My Rampage is fine but my Rattrap looks like it has leopracy.

    Most of my transmetals are totally fine and still awesome. There's just the tiniest amount of flaking on cheetor. The exception however, it TM2 Prowl. That guy has got flakes falling off from even touching him, which is a shame, because that's a great toy and it's really hard to find a replacement in the original coloring.

    It does depend on the toy but most transmetals are prone to this.

    The worst hit on my side are Ramulus and Scourge. Ramulus has been flaking since the day I got him.

    BM Ultra Jetstorm is bad too. Mine has got to the point where he has a hole in the paint on his chest now.

    Though on any of them, if they completely flake off, I might just repaint the sections myself so they display well. Rampage I think I might have a halfway decent body somewhere.

    I had a Transmetal Cheetor.

    Shit was Fubar, so I had to throw it away.
