    Well here's hoping we'll get a Legacy Prime universe Magnus?

    I know it's early, but is there any news on the Reactivate guys having discoloration? Prime is covered in the same grey plastic as a lot of at-risk figures mentioned here and while Soundwave lacks that, he's got some differing blue shades that remind me of the Cyberverse Deluxe, in which mine greened like crazy.

    I don't recall seeing any reports yet but like you said, it's still super early.

    At least it hasn't been a Premium Finish Starscream situation where the thing is messed up out of the box.

    Right? This whole situation is infuriatingly bizarre to nail down.

    Has Premium Finish Siege Optimus Prime been added to the list? I think the grey handle of the axe as well as some of the grey parts on the back of his legs have started to yellow.

    I noted some yellowing in the axe of retail Siege Primes axe too. Not sure if it is old news.

    So has anyone had yellowing experiences on any of the Wreckers Amazon Capsule figures? I've been eyeballing them for a bit but I wanna know ahead of time what to look out for, if anything.
