Odd pickups

Post by Taffius »

As I haven't been here a while, I have acquired a few small vintage pickups recently - just couldn't leave them looking sorry for themselves and isolated. :lol:

Common, however the colour transformation / degradation I thought was interesting on a couple:

The 8D8 transformant overall is in really good condition however the torso is obvious but the moulding looks a lot clearer than my "normal" all white 8D8.

Leia poncho is also a curio as would of expected both legs to be the same.

I am 99.9% sure these are nothing special, however as I am still a noob, I could not show and tell these without observing the differences.

The 8D8 is the 100 a day lucky strike variant.
