    I could've sworn I saw a pic online of Ramjet with yellowed forearms. i certainly could be mistaken as well, could've been Sandstorm.

    Wanted to share my batch codes for both my Kingdom Blasters IMG_20220805_205326__01.jpg IMG_20220805_204821.jpg . Looks like it might be yellowing on the tape deck buttons, inner thigh joints, and the handle joints. Rewind's back appears to be changing the same color as the parts I mentioned on Blaster.

    Possibly. Some people have reported discoloration but others aren’t sure as it could just be that the plastics are different colors as is. Either way, nothing as egregious as what we’ve seen on more widely reported cases like Soundwave.

    Got my Leadfoot/Masterdominus set today. When I transformed Leadfoot though, his right spoiler looked very... discolored.

    OUT OF THE BOX.

    I actually had something similar with my G2 Core Megatron. His right thigh was noticeably darker than the right which was a bright neon. I don’t think it was yellowing in my case, but rather a sort of factory error. Maybe it’s the same for your copy?

    That’s terrible. Mine doesn’t have that (…yet?). What a horrible crapshoot this is.

    Yeah, it could be. The shoulder joints are the same color, strangely.

    Finally got around to keep MM who’s been sitting in his box for a week….aaaand looks like I have some yellowing. This is batch 20831, preorder from Toysnowman.

    3 pieces are affected. It’s not super noticeable on the two smaller ones on pictures, but it’s there.

    My leadfoot has a mustard waist -- that's not normal, is it? I'm guessing from Kingdom Mirage that it's supposed to be the same color as the rest of the yellow.

    I've gotten lucky on the usual suspects until now (cyclonus, netflix megs, tigatron, coneheads, ...). At least it's not too visible from the front?

    Forgive me but I don’t see mismatched plastic. Even still if it’s red it’s likely not “yellowing”, rather just the shade of plastic. Hasbro has a tendency (as can be seen with SS Ironhide) to not match red plastic very well.
    Factory mistake. Happens from time to time. Probably just paint.
