I just picked up my Palpatine figure this morning and noticed what a whacked paint job it has. I guess it wasn't too dry when it was put in the bubble because there's brown paint on the bubble that rubbed off from his shoulders.
Plus his liver/age spots are really dark. They look like measels compared to the others I've seen in pictures. Man, he really looks creepy.
The kicker is that the paint on the top of his hair rubbed off onto the bubble so it looks like he has one of those skunk-dos. Really odd looking cat (or polecat) this guy.
I'll try to take a dig. pic and post it, but my camera/PC link isn't working well right now.
