    Whats causes chrome to fade/change colour? Example below my vintage prime, he wasnt looking too bad a while ago but I got him out of deltof this evening and his chrome wear is now significant, he was battle hardened but he was still reasonably shiny. Temperature is petty constant, perhaps the plastics/rubber items around him?

    Probably more a humidity issue than a temperature one but I'm not actually sure.

    It literally rubs off when you are playing with it. Some Transformers are so bad that chrome rubs off super noticeably on your hands. ie: RID Megatron (or is it Galvatron) (the car robots toy, not a later RID)
    I have a list of all G1 characters that have been released in CHUG form. You can find it here. Please feel free to let me know if I got anything wrong so I can fix it.

    OMG Sinner, thank you so much, i had no idea OMP had it and yes the saving is incredible!

    I am grateful

    Thanks

    I think onee of the Spy changers from RID had a bad cowboy accent.

    Iiiiiffff you wanna get a bit techincally odd, Star Sabre is a cowboy based character. But in the samurai sense I guess because he has a sword.

    I love samurai movies and cowboy movies!
