    Finally found a Vector Prime, a Galaxy Force one. His one shoulder and an elbow seem tight, and both shoulder pads are showing stress. Should I be worried about GPS with this figure?

    That's not GPS. GPS doesn't have stress marks.

    Not sure if that's a common problem or not, though.

    I don't know for sure. I'm pretty sure that GPS shouldn't be an issue.
    Was it used? Maybe the previous owner wasn't very careful. I don't think GPS is supposed to show signs of stress.

    Yeah, GPS does not stress. it shatters.

    If it's not sparkly, metallic flake plastic, then GPS doesn't apply.

    It isn't. That's why it's so terrifying.

    MOST of the time, GPS goes straight from "fully functiional" to "shattered shards and dust" so it being loose shouldn't be a GPS symptom.

    Also, it has to be sparkly metal flake plastic (as stated above), and by his era, Has/Tak had *reportedly* fixed the GPS issue more or less.

    Sweet, thanks guys! Just loosen stuff up and don't worry, that's what I like to hear.
