    My copy had no issue though I got it earlier in the year from Amazon.

    That's a bit unfair. Bombshell is much worse.

    I noticed the other day that my Kingdom Tigatron is starting to go. Out of eight 'danger figures' I bought new that's the first one that's shown any signs of yellowing (it's definite yellowing, the feet are now visibly different colours), all the others have - so far - been unaffected. I had hoped whatever was causing it had either passed me by or wasn't present in my office, but maybe it's only delayed the inevitable.

    Oddly he is stood right next to both Kingdom Rhinox and Kingdom Dinobot on the shelf, neither of which have any signs of yellowing as yet. Kingdom Cyclonus, WFC Trilogy Megatron and Nemesis Prime, Studio Series Bumblebee Ratchet, and Premium Finish Starscream are all free of visible yellowing on different shelves in the same room.

    In my case, my Tigatrons have the shoulders, hands and feet visibly yellowed.

    I forgot my Kingdom Dinobot, but he's fine for now. I guess it's not so far off to have the brown plastic be noticeable yet.

    Which Megatron is that? I have the Siege one and it's all good too, but its counter part, Siege Optimus is quite yellow unfortunately.

    Got the shattered glass soundwave my friend bought me today! Instant yellowing on the shoulder before I even opened the BBTS box, kind of boggles the mind how habsro decided releasing an all white figure with this plastic was a good idea. Still love the little guy though

    The War for Cybertron Trilogy (‘Netflix’) one - in my case the ‘spoiler pack’ version.

    As far as I’m aware the standard Siege version isn’t one that’s prone to yellowing, just the WFCT versions.

    Ah I see. I hope yours stays pristine, it's one of the best deco for that mold in my opinion.

    Wait, Earthrise Grapple is browning?! First I’ve heard that that figure is affected by this discolouration. :( 

    Anyway, I wish that I had kept hold of more
    of my Classics/Universe 2.0/etc figures, to be honest. No range-wide discolouration issues, better quality figures, more durable in the long term…

    I think Hasbro might be sending me a Commander Class figure as a replacement for my Kingdom Rhinox...

    Yeah, there's been at least 1 report on this thread other than me, which is why I paid attention to it.
    I used the word browning because it's the color orange getting less vibrant, but it's not actually brown yet. Here's a photo. I remember some of the parts not having the exact orange than the rest when I got it, but nothing like this.
    It's posed this way to show as much parts as possible. The parts that fold into itself in the back have like 2 shades of browning.

    You have some time before it delivers to practice your "disappointed face".

    Pulled out my Cyberverse Arcee yesterday and she was the loveliest shade of mustard.

    Found a cheap new G2 Ramjet at Gamestop to replace the one I had sent to Hasbro and got a Kingdom Rhinox in return. :throw 

    as expected, there was a bit of yellowing on one of the forearms already. I’ll just live with it, until I either find a seeker on clearance with black forearms (like cloudcover) for parts or paint the arms black on Sandstorm and Ramjet.
