Any ideas anyone? Was it just painted by someone?

It looks part of the mould to me, but it does look strange :roll:

I think thats been sprayed. On the picture of the underneath there seems to be a patch of grey coming through

I have seen this before as the plastic has started to deteriorate but I've never seen it go so dark :shock:
Gotta love those variations :wink:

I haven't seen the underneath of an AT-AT for 20 years so I haven't got a clue!! :lol:

The plastic does look very clean though. :?

Even if this was a mega rare prototype it would still not be worth a lot because you have no way to authenicate it and it has no paper trail leading back to kennor. :cry:
I would guess the plastic was probably moulded the wrong colour and they decided to use it any way. I have never seen plastic turn a uniform colour like that. :?
This can only lead me down a dark path....... Again. Lol
