Can someone explain the middle Fett to me? I have a bunch of vintage Fetts and I took this picture to compare the middle light colored one to other "regular" ones. The left one is Hong Kong and the right one is Taiwan. I have two Fetts like the middle one which is a light gray color instead of the more bluish color. Is it just badly faded or is it a true variant? Thanks for your input.

It is just discolored. Many of these fetts discolored. It is a Hong Kong coo, though I forget which one. It is usually the one found in a Baggie or mailer. Don't confuse this fett with the light blue euro fetts, often also called trilogo or pbp fetts. They were shot in a lighter plastic and heir torso is also the lighter plastic.

As Bryan has explained, unfortunately it's just the result of discoloured plastic & not a variant.

Thanks for the link to the tutorial. This site is awesome.

I was pretty sure the light gray Fett was due to post production discoloring but wasn't 100% sure. I still think it looks cool and while not a true variant, I like to display it with the other ones. I have the tri-logo one (both painted knee and unpainted knee thing). I should have put one in the picture too just for fun.

I wish I still had my Nikto with discolored torso. It changed to a strange light green and would have been cool for the thread.
