MLP - Gold Plastic Syndrome by Krekka01 MLP - Gold Plastic Syndrome by Krekka01
Earlier, I've seen the newest episode of MLP:FiM "One Bad Apple", which featured the Cutie Mark Crusaders trying to get back at a bullying who's tormenting them. Anyway, as part of their schemes, they get a bunch of gold powder for painting, and it briefly has Sweetie Belle covered in this golden powder.

From the color of the gold, it reminded me of golden plastic. Then, had the idea of making a Gold Plastic Syndrome (or GPS) joke.

Don't know what GPS is? Gold Plastic Syndrome is a condition in toys that use this type of material to become very brittle and breaks easily. It was very commom in Transformers G2 series (for more info, go here: [link])

Assistant: Sorry but youre mistaken. Its actually 2000 but same time because loss of horn is another 2000 so its means 4000 bits actually.

In the episode, they stated that the gold dust was edible and SweetieBell said Rarity used it for 'emergency edible boots', which makes no sense and as I thought about it a scene came to mind...

SweetieBell: "Rarity, I got that gold dust from Sugarcube Corner that you wanted. What's this stuff for anyway?"

Rarity: "Oh, I got a couple of strange clients recently that wanted edible..." <blushing> "uhh... Boots."

SweetieBell: "Edible boots?"

Rarity: "Yes. Emergency edible boots. Now go away, I don't want you seeing the... boots."

Must be a terrifying and painful disease. If it were to appear in a fanfic, my choice of in-universe name would be Fool's Gold Syndrome (fool's gold being fake and cheap gold), since there is probably no plastic in the land of Equestria.

GPS is also very common in Lego's BIONICLE toys made from 2006-2010.
Except the whole "gold" thing didn't really apply; it happened to every color.
But it was always this one specific part: the socket piece for the ball and socket joints used in just about every joint on every figure.
I had a 2008 Kopaka set break. DURING FIRST ASSEMBLY.

Not the same thing really, those parts are just fragile.
I've noticed that the lime ones break way easier, though, but maybe that's just me. <=P
