Many of you have sent us the review to the newly revealed Generations Selects Black Roritchi from Emgo. You can watch it below. This release is of course extreamly interesting to fans since the existence of this figure hints at the fact that we could get a black redeco of Titan Scorponok, which Roritchi would go with.
You can get this figure right now, we posted that a little earlier today. Let us know if you are getting it and if you have the room for an extra Titan if ever that does happen.

We could also use a nice recolor of Grand Maximus' Cog, maybe with the incentive Pretender Shell/Decoy Armor for the Gran(d) Headmaster unit that never got produced for the Transformers Legends figure.

That would be great. Until then Aragon is my stand-in for Grand Max's Cog.

Well, I'm using my Aragon as...Aragon. I don't want to have to buy another 3-pack just to have a stand-in Cog for Grand Maximus along with another "Invisible" Mirage and Decepticon Impactor. :lol:

One of the people that edited the TFWiki article (and has since been removed) claimed it was gold plastic covered in gold paint. :lol: That article did originally make a good point that it's probably the same gold plastic used on CW G2 Slingshot. Can't imagine them coating the entire figure in paint, seems unlikely.

Has Gold Plastic Syndrome even been a problem with toys manufactured in the past 20 years!? I think Hasbro and Takara Tomy learned there lessons on that before the turn of the millennium. Every time gold colored plastic pops up now, people recoil in horror. Has GPS just traumatized that many people? It's okay! It can't hurt you now!

I can only think of one singular recent instance of gold plastic getting used that didn't cause a panic: ER Sky Lynx. You'd think if it was that much of a concern, people would have freaked out about it's presence on an $80 figure rather than this repaint fellow.

And speaking of Sky Lynx, I'm pretty sure I remember seeing one of the TFW leakers/factory guys say Roritchi's plastic is the exact same as Sky Lynx's lynx head while I was observing the Kingdom leaks, so unless someone's Sky Lynx has had it's jaw explode or disintegrate or something, Roritchi should be fine.

It may not be traumatic but when you have an extensive collection of figures 30+ years old and you go to move them for whatever reason and they crumble to pieces in your hands, then yes, it's frustrating, given that finding a replacement will not be easy to come by.

There is no gold plastic on Sky Lynx, it's all paint. If you look in the gap behind the Lynx head you can see where they couldn't get paint in around the sides of the joint socket, it's white plastic.

As for GPS being gone, every time we think that, it ends up rearing it's ugly head again. The most recent case I can find is really Silver Plastic Syndrome, apparently Unite Warrior Motormaster likes to snap in half thanks to his swirly silver plastic.

And most likely it's a waste of time since the replacement is just as likely to fall apart on you eventually to. I saw a Japanese G2 Electro on Mandarake a few years ago for under $20 that was really tempting, but I didn't expect it to survive shipping overseas. They've also listed US and EU versions for under $30 MOC, but still doesn't seem worth the annoyance.

I experienced GPS live. Once because I was a dumb-ass with my Pretender Roadblock (duuurrr, let's put the gun into his tiny gold hand!) but the other was a surprise. I transformed normally my X-Over Millenium Falcon. When I was at the Chewbaca part, he ASSPLODED. :(

Happened to me with T30 rattrap and tm megs, it was very traumatizing to me as a child as megs was not only my favorite bw fig, but also a gift for my birthday

That one was a terrible double whammy combining questionable plastic and misassembled pelvis joints. Hard to say if the plastic would have held up or not, seems like ones that were assembled correctly or repaired ahead of breaking are holding up, but time will tell.

My first experience with GPS was BW Grimlock from '97. But it didn't break years later, it was the very next year in '98! Chunks popped out of his lower legs like puzzle pieces. GPS wasn't really a term at the time so I had no idea what was going on. Years later, in fact only two or three years ago, it was Magnaboss Silverbolt that crumbled on me when combining them. I thought I was being so careful, too. Never should have tempted fate. I'm afraid to handle my favorite BW figure, Torca, for fear of him disintegrating in my hands. Same with one of my favorite Beast Machines figures, Snarl (really wish I bought the black repaint).

I have to say, I have all those BW figures you mentioned packed away for lack of room and now I'm afraid to go look at them.

Let's also not forget poor Protoform Starscream and ROTF Stratosphere, both of which are prone to crumbling to bits.

My only experience with GPS was G2 Slingshot. I bought him brand new I was 16/17 at the time and wanted to get as many of the combiners as I could because I missed out on the originals. I transformed him twice and he crumbled, I don't know why I never thought to purchase another (probably a good thing I didn't but...)

In any case, yes with modern materials, this should not be an issue, as stated by emgo, (and you can see in his video) Roritchi looks stable, just suffers from a new problem RFS (Repaint Floppiness Syndrome)
