    A single week is far from enough time. The damage for me happened after 3+ months.

    Then I will leave the effect piece attached to the Hound gun, as well as the Astrotrain gun for a few months. I have the room in my office, so no big deal.

    Edit: I'm not trying to prove anyone wrong or right, just kind of an experiment for my own satisfaction. The only time I have ever experienced the rubberizing chemical reaction with anything was decades ago with a Star Wars toy left near a rubber toy snake in a storage box. It was there for at least five years, and the Star Wars figure ended up with a melted leg.
    None of my Transformers, from HftD Bludgeon to CW Megatron have had this happen, so I'm just curious now.

    Some Walmarts in Ontario are selling Siege leader, voyager, and deluxe on clearance pricing. Guy got Astrotrain, Apeface, and Spinister for $39, $19, $14 CAD respectively. Deals to be had today...scalpers will be out in droves. Others are reporting this on another board. I checked the wally near me and there is no sale there.

    i got it out using a x-acto and a screw driver( probably a really terrible approach). this has been the one fear i've had about apeface for 3 reasons

    1. really tight port
    2. clear plastic peg
    3. lack of clearance; there is no proper way to grip it so usually you have to wobble it out slowly.

    Ultra Magnus - "I'm keeping an eye on you Cyclonus, just in case you forget we're allies now!"

    Megatron - "Wow, not one insult. Maybe they have mellowed out finally and..."

    The problem only takes place if the weapon's barrel is painted?

    So I got Soundblaster today, 2 things to note
    1. This is the only 35th anniversary figure I plan on getting and I've noticed that the box finish seems different for a lack of better term perhaps more durable?

    2. This is the only wfc tf figure I have with light piping and gosh it's so good, crossing fingers for more light piping in earthrise

    Overall great figure(just to clarify I don't have Soundwave so this is my first impression of this mold)

    Back when we were all still stuck in the Beepocalypse, I still wonder how we survived those dark times...

    I checked my post history, and back in October I posted pics of Hound with Blowpipe's blast effect. I left it on the tip of his gun and totally forgot about it until this hullabaloo. I checked on him and the part was stuck - had to give it a gentle twist and it took a little paint with it. Not the end of the world, just reporting.

    In other news - BAWK BAWK!
