OK. I bought a Universe Prowl shortly after he came out (I was SHOCKED that he was in my Walmart even before they had Animated toys), and he had the sticky paint plague. I loved the toy, though, and he's been handled enough that the paint on his doors and windshield looks pretty ugly (dirty and some of it's rubbed clean off). Now, my parents sent me a Universe Prowl for Christmas (since I now live about 2000 miles from em and I can't make it to visit this year)... I haven't opened it yet... I heard rumors of a running change in the paint quality, and while I know it's a rumor... I'm wondering if there's any grounds for it? Or is it maybe just a hit-and-miss like the one I have? Is there any number on the package to look for that would indicate it's a later batch that may be better? Or is it a case of I'll find out when I open it?
