    I would bid on these as I am a translucent collector, but the plastic looks yellowed like it's been in a smokers house or something. I'll pass on all...

    How are the clear collection holding up at the moon?
    I m sure they are all well kept, but curious to see if any have started to yellow like the recent ones listed for sale by the same seller.

    why do so many people assume that these were white and has yellowed? the yellowed is intentional. i think they look great. it looks like those semi glowing gold marble stones.

    The last time I saw them, which was earlier this year, they were all still in the same condition (colour wise) as when we first bought them. Due to lack of space they are bubbled wrapped up in storage boxes under a bed.

    I'm guessing this is from the reissue mold? Because the clear Megatron who survaced a few days had 'Made in China' on it's mold (meaning reissue). So I'm guessing the astrotrain has the same markings if there are from the same seller. The 'smoke' plastic looks the same. Please correct me if i am wrong. I really love these clear smoke tf's. Too bad they are expensive, would have loved to own one.

    I believe he was asking why the company produced them.
