    Crack near the shoulder? Didn’t hear about this. Is it on Menasor or Motormaster?

    The above picture is from page 5 of the Legacy Motormaster Feedback thread. It sounds like it's not a very common issue, but at least a couple of people have reported it - and it's only on Motormaster's left shoulder.

    Got around to opening. Batch #21231 purchased at a Target in NorCal. No yellowing and the cracked hinge issue was not present even after 2 transformations. Think this batch is definitely in the clear for now.

    BATCH 20911

    Bought from Gamestop Canada. I’m thinking of returning it, but it’s sold out on their website. As far as I can tell, it’s the only yellowing so far.

    So the crack on the shoulder hinge is news to me.

    Are people finding it out of the box like the yellowing?

    Does it impact the transformation, or is it something you can live with, like how SS86 Scourge's hip swivel housings inevitably tear themselves apart but can still work?

    I have 20831 just like aussiedzfan posted in June, but I am in Canada and received MM from GameStop. The one trailer wheel on back is quite warped.

    There is some discoloration on one side of the same trailer bits, but nothing as bad as the part near the feet.

    Nothing on any of the white parts on mine. For the MM truck cab, I haven't seen anything dodgy either.

    Have there been any reports of yellowing Motormasters in the US?

    That doesn't seem too bad. I suppose I'm just worried of getting one with severe discoloration

    SoCal native here, my code’s 21321. No yellowing or cracking, so that seems to be in the clear.
