An odd find...

Post by Blaster on Thu Mar 14, 2013 5:49 pm

A mate was having a clean out has given me a number of vintage star wars figures. There was nothing real exciting in there apart from a Dengar figure with a weird colour scheme. At first I though it was just that the paint had faded but closer inspection shows that the green paint is uniform and definitely factory applied. I haven't been able to locate any info on this particular variant and I just thought I would ask if any one here has eve seen anything like it before


Thanks in advance. Very Happy

I seen it before back when I use to care about vintage star wars (When I completed the set)

It a deterioration/fading/oxidizing of the other paint apps over time. (It's a breakdown in the red paint leaving only blue & yellow. Brown is made up of all 3 primary colors)

Had to google it, to double check my facts.
