    I can't speak for everyone, but mine all appear to be fine. Allow me to be transparent, long-winded details inside spoiler tag:

    * I live in a hot, dry climate, and the figures are kept indoors in minimal sunlight with the A\C typically set to 75.
    * No exposure to smoke, incense, candles, compressed air, or any sprays such as air freshener or Lysol.
    * I attached a few different blast effects of different colors onto a few different Battle Masters of different colors.
    * After about 3 months, I was able to easily remove all of the blast effects from all of the Battle Masters and there was no evidence of transference of paint, color, or plastic, or of any chemical bonding taking place between the two pieces.
    * The color of the blast effect and of the Battle Master did not seem to matter at all.
    * The weapon ports of the battle masters did not look scarred, pitted, damaged, or like they had lost their basic plastic luster or suffered any kind of physical damage or deformity.

    * In contrast, every time I have put blast effects onto painted plastic, it has caused paint damage and transference within a few days.

    And because I don't like to double post, here is the latest update to my Kingdom Cavern Brawl!

    - Core Soundwave has decided to help in the booth as the microphone operator and co-host, while also managing the Lazerbeak Camera Corps.
    - The sides have been mixed up, and make no sense.
    Maccadam: "Oh, come on. Let's be honest, here! They never made any sense to begin with."
    - There is always something creepy taking place to make Asuka recoil in horror.
    - PotP Inferno joins the brawl because he was lonely in my closet.
    - Still really tricky to balance the daylight across the two sides, since my window faces a weird direction.
    - The Cheetors are back out of jail and Bonecrusher has been moved to the penalty box for stealing the last round.
    Dino: "Cheetor! Stop making fun of my wings!"
    Cheetor: "What!!? I'm not! I just like to put my cheetah legs like this, honest!"

    My scorpinok finally arrived earlier this week. He is a pretty cool little(really little lol) figure. Their are some things that probably could have been refined more, but i like the figure overall.

    Although his left leg at the pin is pretty darn loose. Any tips for how to fix that, if possible I guess?

    Still waiting on my Rhinox and Galvatron to show up. Really excited to get Galvatron.

    Oooh man. I could use you over in the Fossilizer thread! Check my sig :D 

    I haven't found any wingfingers yet. Tucson is usually about 2-3 weeks behind Phoenix in getting the new waves of Deluxes, but will often get Leaders and Voyagers at the same time or sooner. Really strange how distribution works!

    Kingdom Galvatron with clean torso (and arms) looks so much better!

    I did not clean the dirts at lower legs because they don’t seem to be that out of place. Maybe I will clean them later.

    "Who dares disrupt my coronation?!"

    [​IMG]

    "Coronation, Starscream? This is BAD COMEDY!"
    "Megatron? Is that you?"

    [​IMG]

    "Here's a hint!"

    [​IMG]

    "Will anyone else attempt to fill his shoes?"
    "What'd he say his name was?"
    "GALVATRON!"

    [​IMG]

    "Hail Galvatron!"

    This Kingdom figure has thoroughly washed the figurative bad taste of the TR one out of my mouth.:cool:  :ev: 

    The TF '86 movie is...not great, IMO, but this was one of its most enjoyable scenes, at least to me. I was too lazy to split up Devastator and I don't have any horns for the Constructicons or a cape for Screamer anyway.

    I'm totally friendly toward home-made accessories, myself. Got an old purple t-shirt and something to cut it with? :D  I have some purple felt sitting around from an old costume project... Wish me luck!

    Paleotrex? Don't you mean Dracodon? Felt my Paleotrex, and he still seems to be doing fine. However, speaking of the Vertebreak mold, the jaw in the dino mode seems to also be a rubbery part. The one on my Vertebreak has trouble moving, while my Dracodon's jaw works fine, so I don't know if either my Vertebreak's a lemon in that department, or if it's gradual.

    As for Megatron... honestly, I haven't experienced any painted parts melting on him? For one, it seems that any painted areas are far enough away from the rubberized parts to not do any damage. And even then, I checked the dinosaur head area, and it still seems to be holding up alright. Got my Megatron in January too, so time frame isn't an issue.

    Yeah, sorry, I meant Dracodon. Paleotrex doesn't have any of those parts. And I'm not saying my Megatron has melted, I'm just noting that he uses that type of plastic in his build. Lots of it, actually. It seems Dinobot has some as well, but I'm not 100% on that.

    Fair. Dinobot I don't think uses the rubber parts though, from what I've handled of him, he's all regular plastic.

    So I was at Walmart checking to see if the new Kingdom Deluxes were out yet, and they restocked the shelves with a ton of Siege Grunts. Has anyone else had a bunch of Siege Grunts show up in their local Walmarts?

    Anyone know of gap fillers for Kingdom Magnus, like the Dr. Wu ones on my Siege Mags here?

    I’ve been dying to fill in the shoulder pylons on the Kingdom one….

    theres a 3D printed set for him I believe. But I’m not sure where they’re available. Probably just do a Google search and they’ll turn up. I just took out my dr wu set for siege and gave it to my kingdom magnus. It all worked the same except for the shoulder pylon fillers since their are different pieces. I imagine Wu will make a new set that color matches since the siege one is more of a muted discolored white to match siege

    Thanks! Yeah, I’m hoping he comes out with one. Wanted to make sure I didn’t miss it if it already came and went.
    I’ll see if I can get one of my buddies to help print some if I can find any online.

    In the meantime….
