    It seems (my) Henkei Cyclonus has a case of GPS (in his case grey plastic syndrome) in one of his bunny ears.. I spotted it today.. it feels extremely fragile and wobbly.

    Am I the first to spot this or was this already known?

    Uh oh.

    First I've heard of it. Sucks for those with the henkei version, hope it's just a one off thing, and that it isn't prevalent in the universe release as well.

    Have you also checked the joints as well to make sure those spots aren't occuring everywhere?

    I have, it all seems fine and non swirly.. except for that right bunny ear.

    I hope it's just a random fluke :(

    Well that is a bit of good news at least. So yeah....it might be a fluke that, unfortunately happened to you. Just keep an eye on it and any other Henkei in your collection that might be using the same gray plastic.

    Good thing though is that it has happened on a figure that you can easily replace.

    Heh. Henkei Cylconus' ears are made of soft rubbery plastic, yes? Yes. Not much reason to worry.

    Umm... I've got those fill lines on both my Henkei and a Universe Cyclonus. But it's hardly "fragile and wobbly."

    They're just lines created by the plastic during casting.

    Same here. I've got the swirly lines on my Henkei Cyclonus' left ear. It looks just like the picture.

    It bothered me a little in that I wished that both "ears" were smooth looking, but never did I think that there was anything wrong with the plastic. It's the same bendy, rubbery stuff on both ears. I think that kind of rubbery plastic is just prone to forming like that sometimes. I don't think it's anything to worry about.

    My two Henkeis and one Universe Cyclonus all have this issue on the right ear. It's just cosmetic, and doesn't affect the ear's flexibility.
