    alright, step right up and place your bet as to when Blazemaster of the ROTF line will crumble!

    i say five years tops, cause you know, parts of him, mainly his arms, are made of the same swirly plastic that causes GPS, i should know, i got g1 skyhammer haha

    crumble like GPS? I doubt it. gold plastic today isn't like gold plastic in the 80's and 90's. but you never know.. does Blazemaster have any wavy/swervy lines in the plastic?

    he does, same swirls basically that my g1 skyhammer does

    his arms are the parts that use the most gold plastic

    edit:here is a picture, you can see the swirls in his arms

    I guess 3-4 years from now based on the most recent GPS toys from the first movie.

    jolt is an awesome figure, i picked him up for 9 bucks at walmart the other day, and trust me he is worth every penny . simple yet satisfying transformation, beautiful mold, great articulation. the only prob is the head restriction, but that doesnt bother me much.

    I feel it's relevant to revive this thread because it has been 6 years since this thread was started and my Blazemaster shows no sign of GPS. (I googled Blazemaster GPS and led me to this thread.) I brought him to work with me to mess with him and I in fact I had a couple gold pieces unclip from each other and I went to put them back together with a ton of stress with no problems. Still not high on my list of favorite figures but he may start growing on me.

    This ought to be sticked for any time someone asks about gold plastic syndrome.

    Hasbro stated at a Q&A a while back that they thought they'd gotten the gold plastic mix right starting with this figure, and it seems to have held true so far:

    Hasbro Transformers June 2010 QnA - The Toyark - News

    And I don't think there have been reported issues of it since that time.

    Well, that's definitely good news, if that's the case. That means CW G2 Slingshot should be fine...I hope.
