Hi guys, first time posting here but longtime collector from London, England.
I have a few questions on mold or mould(think we spell it different over here) on figures and whether it can spread to other figures etc.
I bought a loose collection from a guy the other week and about 5 out of around 50 figures have the small brown dots, the Luke Farmboy being the worst affected, the other 4 only have a small hint of the brown spots and the rest seem ok.
I have sold the Luke on and plan to sell the other 4 affected ones, but my question is, i'm going to keep the other 45 un-affected figures but i'm a bit concerned about mixing them with my main collection of 500 or so loose figures, even though they show no signs of brown spots do you think as they were with those other 5 that one day they may develop the spots ? And more importantly, do you think they could spread to my other figures ?
Anyone known a proven case of them spreading ?
I appreciate i'm coming off slightly paranoid with this post but it's taken me years to build up my collection so I don't want them ruined.
I suppose one way of looking at is that any figure you buy on Ebay or wherever you never know it's full history so maybe i'm just being a bit too over cautious ?
By the way I did have a go at cleaning that Luke with soap and water but it didn't budge
Thanks for any advice.
