    Has anyone noticed how often they seem to be using metal flek type plastic recently? I just got the legends animated optimus and bumblebee, and if you look at them under good lighting, the plastic is almost sparkly, and its seen it used on the other animated toys as well, mostly in paint apps, but occationally in the actual plastic like the legends figures.

    I personally think its really cool, it ads to the figure and make it feel special somehow, instead of just a flat color. Im just curious if this is something new theyve started doing or if this is nothing new.

    discuss!

    Yeah, maybe inspired by MP Thundercracker?
