    Deluxe for a yellowed voyager is not really equal value but I mean kickback is the better figure though.

    Yeah this is more the point especially when the Hasbro rep told me they were sending out a replacement of equal or greater value.

    I've had warranty issues with a Marvel Legends figure and the replacement was one of those 12" titan figures made for little kids.

    Do we have confirmation if the Siege Jetfire and Earthrise Sky lynx recent reissues turn yellow?
    My siege jetfire from 2020ish has yellowed / greened but sky lynx is still fine.

    I have both reissues but are still sealed in box. I'm afraid to open them and see...

    Unless the pictures showing something damning otherwise, months back someone posted some pics from someone else on fb where they claimed theirs was yellowing like around the legs. To me (and a few others) I didn't think it was yellowing, it was just parts being painted diff shades of what was supposed to be the "same" grey but like typical hasbro fashion just didn't work out well. Look at the recent figures of characters like Sunstreaker or Ironhide for instance that obviously are diff shades of yellow and red when they're supposed to be the same.

    Nah, I'll take pictures when I can but I just got Core Grimlock not even 30 days ago and he's been my go to fiddle figure over that time. When I had received him his entire body was the same shade of gray plastic but now his shoulders, thighs, right foot, and the armature that the upper Dino torso is connected to are all this off shade yellow gray.

    Here's pics of the yellowing on my Core Class Grimlock.

    He did not arrive looking like this and I haven't even had him for a month yet.

    They're really fun pocket toys and I'm going to try and get a replacement whether or not Hasbro sends me one.

    I just wish they'd get this damn issue fixed. There's got to be some understanding for why it's happening at this point.

    Why would they spend money fixing it when you keep buying the toys anyway?

    Let's be reasonable here, this isn't a traditional vote with you're wallet issue such as disliking how the figures are made or not agreeing with the pricing. This is an issue that has some outliers that seem to cause it while other times not at all. It's a very fickle thing. What needs improvement is Customer Support for the issue with replacements set aside for figures affected by it and transparency with customers on what Hasbro is doing to fix it. I want these products and have no problem paying the MSRP but this discoloration issue needs more attention and care than it currently has which can only be done by yelling about it when it occurs.

    When Hasbro are losing more money because of the problem than it would cost them to fix the problem, they’ll fix it. Until then they won’t care.

    Exactly that's why you but the figures and if they get yellow call customer support. That's Hasbro out of 2 figures and if that one yellows you call them again. Buying the product and complaining ends up costing them more than not buying so long as your vocal about the issue.
