    It’s not mold, it’s a release agent they use for the metal molds.

    I can't imagine that it's the plasticizer at this point. I'm wondering if the wings are PLA/PLA+ which is corn-based.

    People keep saying that and no one's 100% certain that's correct. It would be one thing for the mold release agent to make itself known right out of the box, like most of the figures, but some are spontaneously having this appear on figures that didn't before. That certainly sounds like mold growth.

    I didn’t take pictures, but I bought a sealed buzzworthy bumbkebee that came with Charlie, and Charlie and her ties had the white stringy mold stuff, it wiped right off and hasn’t come back after a few weeks.

    Oh, I know. I'm the one who debunked it.

    But some folks were very fussy at me, and my memory is long.

    I guess it will be the longer legs and weapons like what they did for the Magnus mold.

    I'd prefer a blue axe ala SG Nova instead.

    I finally got around to ordering Nova.
    I'm really looking forward to having him in hand.
    I never got the Galaxy Prime version and I think this mould suits Nova way better.

    Was wondering tho, if there is any upgrade kit that fully replaces the wings with articulated ones.
    I know there are wing extensions, but I'm thinking it would be great if the existing wings could fold down properly in alt mode and spread more in robot mode.

    Got here a day early!
    And I love it!

    Definitely going to get some upgrade kits for him.
    But besides that, I'd like to replace the big cannons and replace the feet.

    I'd prefer to replace the cannons because I see them as belonging to Cybertron OP.
    What I'm going to replace them with? I'm not sure yet.

    And the feet just suck. They suck on every version of this mould.
    BPF Lieutenant fixed the design and it's way better without the stupid tilt.

    I just discovered I don't have the large shoulder pads. Does anyone remember where they were in the box? I'm wondering if I actually threw them out with the stuffing, or if they're still attached somewhere inside ( I have the box in my attic).

    The shoulder pads were indeed packed in the tissue paper.
