I give up. Sorry. I could have sworn I just read a topic regarding why some figures' plastic might be swirrled or something similar to that due to injectors being cleaned and perhaps first batches being made from plastic not fully mixed... again, something to that effect. I wanted to re-read it, but can't for the life of me find it.

I ask because I just received this oddity:
Partiallly Clear Leia Bespin blaster 8842886686_4f8967f7b8_o
Partiallly Clear Leia Bespin blaster 8840873963_298f9f2037_o
Partiallly Clear Leia Bespin blaster 8842886818_d30a3faa1c_o
Even without putting it up to a backlight, it is see-through and clear (last picture).

I wanted to re-read the thread I thought I saw to see exactly how something like this would happen.

Can someone point me to it (if I am not imaging it) or possible explain it to me if anyone does know.

cheers! Smile

Funny, that thread popped up in my searches and I only looked at them images this time and it didn't ring a bell.
Guess I should have read it. Embarassed

Thanks again.

None? I have to say that little sucker is definitely rare and in my opinion, a bit over priced for a loose one without figure, but they are out there.

I am missing 70% of the Leia blasters for my focus and know it will cost a pretty penny to put a blaster in all their hands! And then there is the capes. No

Anyway... I remember you posted a bit back about the difficulty of finding a Bespin Leia with all her gold details still intact and then another thread on ESB figures quality in general... once I get my Leia Bespin focus sorted out over the next month or so, I know I will have a couple extra great LBs with gold intact available. Some paints are so much better and can survie the ages and I have a few dupes already. I will PM you with what I have available at that time. I won't ask much for her if you are interested.

Anyway.......... more to come via PM when I shake it all out.
cheers, Bud!
