I had a few vintage snowtroopers that got a lot of brown spots on their arms and legs. And this was only 10 years after I had bought them new as a child. It also appeared on the Lobot figure and some of my stormtroopers :roll: I don't own them anymore, sold them at last... :D

It's a shame. Especially as she's otherwise in nice condition. They're not designed to last 40+ years though as much as we'd like them to.
This 'lower end' collector has 2 VCJs, 2 mint yaks (one graded) and one near mint blue snag. Not bad for a 'lower end' collector! lol
