    Hey guys, it's been wicked warm for the past few days where I am and I noticed that on some of my G1 and RTS figures that the rubsigns were going off without even being touched. Is prolonged heat bad for the rubsigns, like will they warp or something? Because if it is, I'm putting them in the basement ASAP to keep them in good condition. Thanks!

    No idea.

    I did notice that the rubsign on newer toys seem to be far more sensitive than they did on my vintage Octane which took quite a bit of time and effort to become even remotely visible.

    I remembered rubbing the signs until my finger was burning and it stall wouldn't show.

    It seems to me I remember a similar thread popping up ways back. I'm pretty sure prolonged heat will cause rub signs to stop working if I'm recalling correctly.

    Well for what it's worth, the rubsign on my G1/G2? Ironhide platform thing is completely gone, and it's not even something I played with a lot (on account of not having the actual Ironhide robot. It just sort of floated around boxes & whatnot, and now just has a messed up black sticker.

    I actually don't know why his faded away while the ones on Rodiums & Flywheels are fine (as they were always kept in my room or in a cool basement), but something definitely made it go away, and it wasn't constantly scratching.
