Hi, I just read on toyanimal.info abou Clairet plastic figures decomposition problem, see [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I never previously heard about this phenomena so I thought that some figures were made from low quality degradable plastic (something like Breyers affected by vinegar syndrome) but the arcticle claims that "they may host a bacteria which eats them and transforms the plastic back into petrol". Moreover: "...it's thought that it may be possible to transfer the bacteria from one figure to another, effecting other brands of hard plastic figures as well." This sounds very unlikely because different manufacturers use different kind of plastic...

Please has anybody here at STS your own experience with this phenomena? Can anybody confirm/explain it or share further details?

Eureka, it is [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

I have a few Starlux which have the disease, they are isolated. I think the story began because they spent too much time together in a box. It doesn't mean all the Clairet will be petrol one day, I have no problems with my collection but I take care of them... And no dark box!

Thanks, Kiki, I read the thread you linked but I see no info about the decomposition bacterial cause neither about the disease transfer from one figure to another.

I am really scared because just all my figures are loaded for years in dark boxes. When I will open these boxes one day, I see just carefully packed NOTHING...  affraid affraid affraid

Items in PVC or Britains' plastic are unaffected, as far as I know.
