Has anyone noticed stress marks on their titan master figures/headmaster pilots. I just added Titans Return Skytread to my army of titan master figures. I was inspecting Titans Return Overkill and his pilot arms have gotten stress marks after popping off of the figure a few times.

Are stress marks common on dark colored plastic in this line or which ones are most know for stress marks forming near the ball sockets on the arms. ? Skytread/Flywheels on the other hand is fine.

Popping any ball joint is generally done with more caution the smaller it is, with Titan Masters I wouldn't recommend doing it at all. I haven't seen reports on stress marks in those areas (my Shuffler has marks on the front of the shoulder, hugging the raised detailing), but in general, they're more noticeable with darker colored plastic, by virtue of stress marks being lighter in color.

Besides, stress marks are still preferable over down right breaks.
