    So I took out my GF Vector Prime toy to take some pics with him for the photo contest. He has been standing in my closet on my shelf for a few months, and the closet is always closed. What was weird was when I touched his clear blue plastic parts, my fingers turned the plastic white, kind of like if flour was put on the plastic. I was able to wipe off most of it with a cloth, but it happened to his wings and the sword. Anyone else have this problem?

    That's really weird. I just took mine out yesterday for the same reason but I didn't notice anything odd.

    Ditto, mine was in the same type storage at Cat1's for a few months, but last time it was out, it was fine.




    Were any other TFs stored in the same place/way affected? MY only guess would be it was a combination of the conditions in the closet combined pehaps with the pastic tray in the box(?)

    you guys, the closet can get hot. it has no ventilation. paint apps can come off. you should always store your toys in a cool place. no higher then 70 degrees.

    There has to be another reason combined with that....I have no other place to store my TF's except a shed outside...really hot and really cold....and my Vector Prime has never done that

    The clear plastic is that bendy stuff right? Perhaps the oils in the plastic which keep it soft and maleable which would normally evaporate without leaving much residue were trapped in the low air flow environment, leaving a residue white powder.

    It's also possible that dust just got into your closet. I've found a suprising amount of dust in my dresser droors despite the fact that they are closed with a bookshelf keeping them that way.

    That is strange, my Vector Prime has always had a white body.
