Exclamation Important Info found: Rubber/Soft Plastic is starting to melt Transformers

Hey peeps,


I thought this was an urgent thing to share but Transformers with soft rubbery plastic are starting to melt solid plastics.

So far major culprits are RotF Bludgeon molds & effect parts for WFC. I checked my Bludgeon and Scavenger, but Scavenger is fine and Bludgeon his minor to none issues. I recommend checking your figures with these types of plastics. I'm not too worried about my boys but I'm gonna keep my eye on them. It's gotten pretty bad with some so be cautious. It's like modern age GPS so take care of your figures peeps.

I know some people like super flawless figures in their collection so I wanted to help spread the word. I'd also be vigilant about how they are stored because from what I've learned it has to do with a touch so be careful in case it starts rubbing against your other figure if you store them in that way.

Let's keep our figures protected peeps!

I think this is the same thing with some of the old Pretender shells, especially the Monster Pretenders, getting "sticky" or "oily" to the touch.
It's the chemical that makes the plastic rubbery coming out.
I've also seen it happening with the rubbery tips on my Hero G2 Megatron and Optimus. I've actually seen little droplets of liquid dripping out of the bottom of the missiles, and the rubbery tips getting hard.

My bludgeon is fine but I can see the treads falling apart it's the material like the rubber on the rid line of transformers.
