Re: Blaster done now Fett to do

So drilled out the two ends of the scope and the barrel

Looks better and also allowed me to use a stake to make it easier to spray the primer and mat black afterwards
Let it dry then do some more on it.

Re: Palitoy Yoda Hand Puppet

Really nice example and as you say the Palitoy premium adds to the value, still tied (doesn't look like it's been removed) so again this would add to value, inserts and base tab are also a bonus, really nice example and Palitoy are not coming up as much I would go the £175 as a starter on evilbay Go...

Re: R2 factory error?

Looks to be dark blue ( where there are paint apps that is) not sure though, meet to see that leg paint on it as well
Doesn't look like it's faded or stripped on the dome paint apps, so could well be a factory error

Re: Obi-wan Kenobi vintage figure -brown leg

Yes the green limbs Chewie is a great example of degradation

The brown leg is almost certainly degradation

Plastic degrades in a plethora of ways, I'm no expert ( Wilkie definitely is!) but I would put my money on degradation.

Re: Boba fett Black series helmet

Yes I see what you mean, the proto one still looks cool, but I would always plump for the painted version as it's iconic
