    What's the worst example of white plastic turning yellow on a TF you've ever seen? I found this on ebay and I think it's the worst I've ever seen:

    The autobot symbol turned white? He must have been sitting in the sun for 20 years.

    How much is that Metroplex going for?

    he actually looks rather cool in those colors..Maybe like a tarnished destroyed Metroplex, like the Transformers movie after the Decepticons attack.

    Hahaha! Your comment caught me offguard that I actually broke into laughter! And yeah, that has to be the WORST case of yellowing I've ever seen in all my years of toy collecting!

    I saw a PRime Trailer about a week ago on EBAY.....it was gold. Look like a cat peed on it and it looked worse than this.
