    I'm sorry for the threads today. I've been playing with my toys alot. So anyways, I'm got a little obsesive compulsive in me. I like to keep my tf's in the best condition possible, even when playing with them. But I noticed stress marks on the railings on Long Haul. I noticed them on the railings on Demolishor a while back. I don't think they pose a threat in the immediate year or two. It kind of ticks me off though 'cause Long Haul is my favorite ROTF figure. just want to give everyone a heads up to not be so "rough" on the railings when transforming them. *end of public service announcement*

    I noticed that, too, but I've had a lot of quality issues recently, so I figured it wasn't anything special.

    I noticed stress marks on my Long Haul's railings too. I was a little worried, I'll have to be careful.

    Hmm, not noticed this on mine yet. The only trouble I've had with RotF figures is Scalpel -- there are cracks on his leg joints and one arm keeps dropping off -- but that doesn't seem to be anything new with him. It seems I shall have to keep an eye on my Constructicons, too. Thanks for the warning, mate.

    the railings on mine were stressed fresh from the package.

    I'm hoping someone makes repros that use a stronger plastic.

    Of all the things they make out of that soft rubbery plastic they miss the one that needed it the most. They did make the ladder on Mixmaster out of it and there's no worry of it breaking.
