Does anyone else have this problem like I do? Of all 500+ figures that I own from 1995 till just yesterday, my commtech R2-D2 with holographic Leia has yellowed and it is the only one. I thought the days of yellow bubbles were a thing of the past. Guess not...

If you are talking about yellow bubbles then I have seen this before in the new lines. I have seen several from the EP1 line that have yellowed. I even saw a website trying to sell a Chancellor Valorum with yellow bubble as a variation if you can believe it. :eek:

yeah well I'm sorta angered that it hit only that one and not some dumb figure like R5-D4 or one of my numerous ugly faced Leias. I think I spent somewhere near $40 for that R2 with holographic leia. The going price seems to have dropped somewhat but not enough to allow me to just open this yellowed bubbled poop and replace it.

Man, you must of had it in direct Sunlight. It's best to keep the carded figures in a dark cool place.;)
