FE Bulkhead Hinge stress marks

So I got my FE Bulkhead from bbts. and both the hinges that hold his arms have HUGE stress marks. Should I be worried? Should I get a replacement?

This is more concerning to me than Optimus missing some paint.

Show us some pictures please. I sae Matt B's pics already but I'd like to determine if they present breakage potential. Stress marks sometimes are just superficial and don't risk the mold piece.
