View Full Version : 12" Clonetrooper head yellowing!

04-08-2004, 11:17 PM
I was dusting my stuff today and noticed the head on my 12" Clonetrooper had taken on a greenish yellow color. It hasn't been sitting in direct light or anything. Oh, and it's only the head, not the armor or anything. I have the armor and helmet on a 12" Dragon figure so I'm wondering if some kind of problem between the two plastics could cause that. Has anyone else seen this happen?

I noticed the same thing on mine. And only on the white version, the Red and Yellow KB exclusives are still white.

Nah, that problem isn't unique to your customized trooper. People have complained about green heads since the day this figure came out. Apparently some are already green while still in the box. I can see the difference in the plastics in my fig. The head of mine is sort of off-white. But I don't see a green hue, or anything.

Are your figures sitting in direct sunlight or lamp light? Mine haven't started to discolor but they aren't in direct light.

Hmm, I wonder if the plastic was just bad or something?

I had in in direct light for maybe a month and the rest of the time since AOTC it has been away from direct light.

Mine have been sitting in a box out of direct light since I got them, and the head is still yellowing on my clonetrooper. Been seeing them in the boxes at TRU like that, too. The bodies are all still pristine white, though. The KB troopers don't have this problem as of yet - still all white. They must have used cheap plastic on the heads of the original clones. That's the only explanation I can think of.

yeap sunlight will do it and I'm guessing over exposure of store lighting can also damage it cause my kmart still has a 12inch clonetrooper which the head/ome armor is yellowng bad. clonetroopers yellow fast

The yellowish head on the all white 12" Clonetrooper is exactly why I never bought it. I could never find one that matched the white of the armor.

tagmac is right about the KB exclusive CT Captain and the CT Commander not having this problem. It's because of this I picked both of those up and mine still look the same as the day I bought them.
