    Hey folks-

    Don't know if this is a wide spread thing, but be warned if/when you get your leader Soundwave, the gold striping on his chest rubs off very easily... Like way too easily...

    Mine showed up yesterday and I've not noticed any issues with normal handling but I'll have to make sure to keep an eye on it.

    Yeah, my gold paint is flaking pretty bad too. So was Emgo's in his review, so the issue appears to be widespread. A shame, because he's a solid toy otherwise.

    I had the exact same issue. Definitely a bummer

    That's too bad. It is a great mold. Maybe reprolabels will fix that problem!
