Re: Is there a way to check for repainting?

I say water based specifically because if enamel pain...

Re: Is there a way to check for repainting?

Touch ups usually show up under a black light. Failing that, a strong magnifying glass and good light should show it up. Of course, both methods rely on having them in hand.

They had great sculpts and the quality was top notch. I collected the post 1995 figures right up to Attack Of The Clones. At which point I ...
