    Mine is fine too.

    I guess YMMV with it.

    mines fine too, thought some bits are off white due to the plastic used, rather than it yellowing.

    Mine is definitely yellowing, looks like he was left on a windowsill for months when he wasn’t

    Yup, really hoping that Hasbro will do a solid plastic version for Buzzworthy like they did for Cliffjumper and Kup

    Holy crap.

    That's like...seriously an issue. I already panel lined mine..but if more people look like this, Hasbro should know. It may very well be a plastic supplier, or the manufacturer they hired.

    That's actually pretty crappy, and not that old.

    Mine has been the same. No yellowing. Didn't check my copy in box tho. But I think it's fine.

    Interestingly, the yellowing has mostly affected the roof section, which if I'm correct (don't own the figure) it's clear plastic painted white. So the paint, along with the plastic used for the fenders section, might be part of the problem.

    I dunno man..thats pretty shitty for a relatively newer figure.

    Not sure how true it is, but I read that alot of companies are "trimming their budget" by utilizing lower quality plastics. The comparison was Lego prides itself on always using "Virgin plastic"?? While many other companies are using recycled plastics that are much lower costs, but do not have the same end results.
    Might not even be Hasbros intent..im sure they contract it out to manufacturers and they source thier materials.
    Why I say "Hasbro should know" is they may very well be paying for higher quality plastics..and the manufacturer might be going the cheap route.
    OR, hasbro is totally cool with this..which I doubt. That color change is SO bad, it looks like an 80s storm shadow..is it possible the plastic quality is SO bad that it's even more susceptible to UV?

    Hawbro always says...in all the panels.. "we never changed the type of plastic we use..."

    Tell your manufacturers to prove it.

    I was half correct (Cancelled “Doritos deco” in Toxitron subset), but STILL hoping for the ORIGINAL G2 version at some point

    Guess what, they'll be releasing this mold under Legacy 5-pack without clear plastic but rather painted windshield on opaque plastic.

    Nobody not a 3P made an attempt to make a replacement kit for the roof. like made from opaque white plastic with clear plastic inserts for windows.
    Sure it requires to remove metal pins but at least the selling point of peace of mind that there will no more breaking of this figures roof parts coz of being made from weak clear plastic with paint on top.

    sure the RTS Jazz's roof is made from clear plastic BUT the clear plastic that time was WAY MORE DURABLE compared today.
