    so, i've been window shopping and i kind of wanted to buy beast wars razorbeast, but i found out on ebay that hes pretty pricey for a smallish figure that it is, and i want to buy the repaint of him which is BWN Randy

    i want to ask if anybody thats had/owned BWN Randy to see if the gold plastic is really all that bad on him

    I bought one 6 years ago and his hand crumbled on me right out of the package.

    That mold is cool, but you should just go for the original. It's safer at least.

    unless you bump the package, then it's not worth anything at all

    If you get Randy, leave the beast mode legs alone, don't rotate them. I twisted one of mine off and had to reglue it. GPS can be mitigated by not moving joints unnecessarily.
