I have had this figure for a while and haven't been able to find it as a variation so I was curious if the grey color has something to do with the plastic aging. If anyone has a thought please tell.

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but this might be the so-called "translucent face" Luke, considered an issue of plastic deterioration. Also, note that his limbs are taking on the same color/deterioration quality, but because of the pigment added to them for matching his torso, they aren't showing up quite like the gray of his face. As is pointed out, I believe quite correctly, something like this is likely proven a recent issue of deterioration simply because quality control would have plucked out this guy before circulation. It wouldn't do well to sell a gray-faced Luke back in 1980. Uniformity is the ideal of quality control.

We have a thread about discolored figures if you use the search bar at the top. The written info is still there, unfortunately when photobucket changed their hosting deal it seems most of the pics if not all were lost. There was a Luke bespin with a very deep purple face that looks like what is happening to yours. The one from the thread became very dark purple though. Was a cool transformant to see.
