    How common is to spot stress marks on the fists that clip on their arms? Just began noticing on just about every seeker mold I have (even reissues) most their fists have thin white stripes. Now I'm debating leaving them all in jet mode instead.

    Its pretty common, I have the same problem with my Takara Starscream reissue (not Encore).

    Try the boiling water method. Get some water boiling and submerse the part into the water for 2-3 secs. Works like a charm on the vintage stuff.

    Heard about the boiling water method. Supposedly loosens up the plastic and it rewarps back into shape, might try it on Sunstorm first.
