Hi Guys,

question of the day ( week ): i just bought a Bobba Fett ( waiting for it ): and i was looking at the picture and it looks like it has a paint chip on his chest plate. I was checking lando's locker to see if this was normal but none of the examples i saw showed any paint chip on his chest.

That being said i saw several Bobba's on ebay that have paint chips on their chest plate and i was wondering if this was a normal thing or paint rubs. Looking at the pic of the figure i bought the rest of the paint seems super nice. I bought this Bobba who was in a cheap lot on Ebay. I just could not pass that lot off as it was full of expensive to semi expensive figures in it and a bunch of them i needed.

But the Bobba chip...is bugging me....is that normal or were they pristine clean when they came out?

I ll let you know what my Bobba looks like when i get it...

cheers!

Hi, it's just paint rubs from playwear by the sounds of it. The green chest armour on Fett can be prone to this. Fett would've left the factories pristine back in the day with nice shiny armour.

Agreed, it's fairly common for the paint to come off of the chest
