Something a little odd - must be degradation, but looks like raw unpainted plastic...

Figure on the left is the pick up, figure on the right is the same COO but clearly a very different plastic used to cast the face

Its best not to say.... Actually they weren't too bad considering the rarity and one was a trade. Still, I'd like to keep those numbers to myself :)

Picked up this lovely Yak for my loose set and luckily had the staff it was missing. One more big one ticked off the list, thanks John (DarthDooDoo) :)

I've had two more examples shown to me via Instagram... so with your MoC Chris, that's already up to four examples

I'm actually starting to think it may not be degradation, but possibly just a light or miscoloured batch of plastic as so far they are all the same COO and all the same tone.

Something like the Hoth Trooper or green limbs Chewie all seem (from what I've seen) to be various colours (within a tolerance) and in some cases can be seen at differing points of degradation too... these all seem too consistent.

Certainly don't think it makes it more valuable (though of course someone will be thinking Geishia or Ghost Face variant £££ :roll: ), certainly makes it interesting though.

Instagram has also thrown out a yellow cuffed WBBG... that really does look a case of paint colour degradation though as it appears to have a redder tinge at the edges - always learning and seeing new things no matter how long you've been collecting

I’ve got this Han Bespin with a very pale face. Always thought it was the colour of the plastic rather than anything else.

You can see the difference to the other one.
