I recently bought an expensive Lego set with a large number of tan-colored pieces. I was very disappointed to find out that more than a dozen (isn't that a spectacularly large number?) of 1x1 bricks had significant cracks (see picture). As I've only had problems with tan pieces, this seems to me like a systematic quality problem.
The tan pieces generally feel weaker than other colors, and it seems probable even more cracks will emerge later.
Question: Is it true that Lego has systematic issues with tan-colored pieces?
