I'm starting to think Mattel should stay away from translucent plastic as well (which sucks, because I LOVE translucent figures and accessories!). I collect Ghostbusters and one of my MOC Scoleri brother figures looks SEVERELY cracked all over the place. He looked like that when I first got him from Mattel. It has to be a fragility issue or something. None of Mattel's translucent flight stands or DCUC and JLU stands seem to have any kind of problems though. Are they made of a different type of plastic?
