    I've noticed that on lowest rotating plastic joint on 1 of chest side, there is a vertical stress mark on the section that is attached to the sholder,perhaps I've transformed badly one time or it was always present,I don't know.

    I fear that at the end,even always using extreme care,after some transformations whole joint will unavoidably break,what do you think?

    This sadly true, at least for me. I had a FOC G2 Bruticus in its combined form for a while, but when I wanted to transform them into their individual modes, the balljoint on Swindle's right leg twisted and snapped off.

    Thanks very much for your help.At this point I'll always keep him in bot mode(that I prefer to Menasor combiner)
    Funny thing is that I've transformed also my 2 classic CW Hasbro Motormaster more often of G2 version(and just 1 time,one of them, with a rather tough transformation on shoulder section) and despite this, everything on them seems still perfect.


    I love my G2 Stunticons but as plastic some bots of the boxset seem weaker of my classic CW Stunticons also some cars as yellow Wildrider give me this impression.

    Carefully use a blowdryer on the stress mark.

    That only fixes the stress mark, not the problem that caused it.
