    I just ordered off eBay my first ever from a g1 mold (Takara Collection Hot Rod) and I've never owned a Hasbro Classics and I've always wondered, when you rub a rub symbol, will the faction go away after a while or is it permanent? I know this sounds stupid but what the hell, I have a wimpy collection anyway.

    Nice toy. I have an e-hobby clear hot rod and it is awesome...back on track, when you rub the symbol it shows the faction and then turns back to black until you rub it again.

    it fades away until you rub it again. The visibility is activated by your body heat in your finger-tip. It would also appear if the figure is directly underneath a light such as a lamp.

    Or if it's hot. I remember a few summers back in the 80's when it was so hot, the rubsigns showed their factions without touching them.

    Classics do the same thing. The rubsigns are identical in composition, I'd say.
