    again, after finally digging out all of my toys from storage, one of the big things I was afraid of was flaking on my transmetals. well, it was all good until I got to tm rattrap. he looks like broken glass. I seem to recall that figure being one of the worst offenders of this problem. what I don't understand is why, out of 20 figures, would it only happen to one? I would think that it would sort of be an all-or-nothing problem, but then again the same sort of thing happens with white plastic: some yellows, some doesn't.

    My rattrap is still in good shape. My TM2 Prowl is another story altogether. I can't even pick him up without getting transmetal flakes all over my hands.
