    I was playing around with my green target RID Landfill repaint yesterday for the first time in over a year, and noticed that the paint apps have faded to almost white, and some of the painted plastic has warped. Does this sound normal for RID quality or did I get a defect?

    That sounds defectish. None of my normal colored RID Landfill figures are messed up at all.

    Not sure about that specific redeco of the mold, however my RID Car brothers paint has gone a little "funny" looking and they have been in storage for the past 2 years in the basement in non-clear plastic bins. RID prowls white paint, for example, is more "grey" now then white on his roof around his siren.

    Where have they been placed over the past year?

    My RiD Landfill has been in my garage with all the exhaust fumes and such over the past 8 months or so waiting for me to custom them up and repaint them. But they're just fine. No plastic warping/melting, no paint wear or fading. Nothing.

    My Target Green Landfill is just fine. Pulled him out of a bin the other day to mess with. Sucks to hear yours went bad.
