I feel like I am a GPS worrywart. I have avoided previous toys with the known condition. And thought about the latter part of the decade, there haven't been but a few Transformers with gold plastic with some people saying they have had an issue while others say they haven't. The Star Wars Crossover Chewbacca does have the problem along with that one Micromaster KayBee exclusive set in which the name elludes me. Anyways fast forward to 2010 and a plethora of Transformers with gold plastic. Blazemaster from '09, Leader Starscream, HA Jazz (more or a copper shade), PCC five-pack Destructicon drones, and now Hailstorm. While Hailstorm has a lighter shade of gold that didn't seem to have the problem, he remains suspiscous to me at least. Does the fact that these toys have gold plastic discourage you from buying certain toys? Or do you buy doubles or triples in hopes that you can make some cash down the line if it does happen? Or finally, is it one of those things that doesn't even cross your mind and if it happens, it happens? Now I know more than likely I am making a bigger deal out of it than it is, but is something that I think about when I open a toy and find gold plastic.
