    Do any of you have Stress Marks where his arms meet his shoulders? I bought a new one still in package but was wondering if this is a occuring fault on Rodimus?

    Okay then. I have always been crazy careful when Transforming my TFs so I was just curious.

    Nope, but I have plenty of stress marks on Titanium Rodimus Prime's waist. It takes ten men to transform that bugger.

    I hear Rodimus is prone to breaking in that area. Mine, though, is fine.

    Yes. They aren't huge, though, so I'm not worried about him. And they at least make more sense than the huge stress mark my Classics Starscream came with on the back of his right leg (which isn't even near a joint).

    Upon close inspection, mine seems to have some tiny ones on the actual arms, right over that area where the orange piece goes in for the joint. As all they do there is rotate, I can't imagine the joint itself is causing the problem; I'm thinking maybe during assembly, when they screwed those things in. Anyways, if thats what you're talking about, unless you try to do something really unnatural with the joint it should be fine.

    Mine has them stress marks on his arms where the shoulder joints are. And I agree with butz, it could be that they're from assembly, because the joints on mine are stiff, but not too stiff, so I don't have to force the arms to move.

    To all above I guess that good news because like I said previously I am real careful when Transforming my TFs as to not cause Stress marks. Thanx for all the input guys.

    First Classics Rodimus I had got the stress marks, I ditched him and got another. The second one is fine.
