    I noticed this the other day and I know it wasn't this obvious when I bought him ...

    On my BT-01 Smokescreen the paint seems to have faded slightly everywhere except the bonnet. The bonnet still looks as deep blue as the day I opened it! Elsewhere there is almost a yellow sheen. As a result the bonnet stands out a bit, especially in Subaru mode.

    For the record he's never been displayed in direct sunlight or in overly hot/cold/damp conditions. Has anyone else noticed the same issue?

    Thanks,
    Steve.

    PS. He's still one of the most beautiful Transformers ever created of course. :p
