    GPS - Gold Plastic Syndrome. basically, as some types of gold plastic age they crumble. It's a particular problem among Transformers toys which have gold plastic; G1 toys are terrible for it (Look up posts about Black Zarak for some truly horrifying stories of a very expensive G1 toy that is amazingly rare to find intact because of this problem), and so are Beast Wars toys. There have also been reports of more recent toys such as Movie 1 Protoform Starscream suffering from GPS, so it is possible that this is still a problem with gold plastic now.

    Gold Plastic Syndrome, I doubt it. I thought they fixed that issue on the newer TF's

    You could jsut take the gold plastic apart and replace it with Tracks' parts. Then make a Red tracks aka Roadrage. That is what I did.

    looking at my swerve and protoform starscream chunks/fragments/dust, the plastic is much swirlier on starscream. I think swerve will be fine.

    mine has some cracks in his RED plastic, but the gold is fine.
