What a shame. I've been watching the slow disentegration of his vac metal chest since I got him. First noticed the damage after maybe a year on the shelf and now it's reached this level. Mind you, he's remained completely untouched after I initially handled him. This has all happened on its own. I looked around ebay a bit and it is a common problem with loose Ultra Jetstorms. Any thoughts on why that is? I mean, I have a truck load of vac metal beasts as well as older, far less quality, vac metal toys and this has never before happened. You'd think by the time Beast Machines rolled around they would have perfected the process... Being as the problem is limited to loose examples, I'm surmising it's the result of an interation between the botched vac metal and oils on human skin. How has Botcon Cyclonus fared over the years? Anyone open theirs? Also, there was a Japanes release, yes? I still have a sealed Jetstorm but would like to find a displayable version that this won't happen to.
