I was looking to see if there was any way to prevent or even remove yellowing from the bubbles on carded action figures and I ran across this site that claims they found a method of actually removing the yellowing from vintage action figures.
So I'm just wondering if anyone knows about this? Has anyone tested it out? If so does it really work?
For anyone who doesn't want to click the link, the process involves submerging the figures in a chemical called Hydrogen Peroxide 35% food grade, then placing the submerged figure in direct sunlight. Supposedly the process will completely remove the yellowing from the white plastic without discoloring anything else.
Obviously this is not going to work that well if I want to "de-yellow" (or "de-brown" in the case of some POTF figures) the blister on a MOC figure.
But of course, who knows what effect this might have on the plastic 10-20 years down the road. I'm almost tempted to buy an old, yellowed Stormtrooper figure on Ebay just to test this out.
Also, if anyone has any advice for how to display a MOC vintage figure in a way that will prevent the bubble from yellowing, I'm all ears. And locking it away in a closet, never to see the light of day, is not really an option.
