PostSubject: yes on the ... due to degridation..    Sat Nov 30, 2013 2:42 pm

Totally agree with just discoloration. due to aging ..
The conversation prior on the topic merits a jestful comment to the title...

and yes totally agree Toltoy cape is the difference. I have found some US Jawas and obi's with the spotty green. as well

Although, this is the first Chewy i have come across, with the spotty green limbs - Likely with more age this "disease" will spread to more figures.

hello,
I often wonder if this is a variant or just a discoloration: pale face, greenish legs

Hey Nicolas,

I'm not quite sure if this is a rhetorical question ... just in case it's not, this figure is fairly discoloured Crying or Very sad

Cheers,
Patrick

Hi guys, great thread helps the new guys like me out with understanding the factory rule and variant rules, thanks dartmatt and trappedtexan for putting me onto it. Anyway i think i have an example of gold paint degradation to show you, had him since childhood then i got him out of storage 2 years ago (my nans lol) and the trimming was gold, after a year it turned to a light/pale blue and now as you can see its just white. The light is terrible here so i took 1 pic with the flash.i dont how it happened all i can confirm is he has never seen daylight through any windows? hope this helps with the thread. Smile

That's an odd one. I have seen the gold go to green (usually on the leia bespin) but I have never seen it go to white. It almost looks like frosting but it is only where the gold paint would be so surely it isn't that. scratch Odd but cool. Thanks for sharing.
