The CT Stormie is probably one of the most produced figures in the modern line... It's been seen repacked a number of times, it was in the popular 4-pack army builder sets... It's just a figure that's seen lots of production.
So I was going through my CT Stormies tonight doing a count on them and I have over 80 which I was surprised I didn't have 100. Kind of made me feel like I am a bit lazy but that's neither here nor there... My VOTC Stormies put me over 100 so that's cool.
The CT stormie rocked but I noticed something about the original figure... The temperature change "deco" on the chest is prone to yellowing. Not all of mine are, but a few were yellowing I noticed and they've been kept in an absolutely perfect environment (no smoking, etc.). I'm sure it's just the make up of the decoration itself... It's yellowing somewhat to how a decal yellows on model kits, and really the way it's applied it looks like it was some kind of a decal (there's even a clear film surrounding where the blast mark is).
Anyone else noticing this anyway? It's not major, and my figures aren't yellowing at the limbs and things, but it's just surprising to me a bit.
BTW 80 figures is impressive... Some are still in their white mailer boxes but I have 60 opened and once I get some hands casted for them (and lop off the stuck hands) this figure will be 100 times better. I put some spare Clone hands on a CT Stormie and it really does improve the figure completely. A total 180 in quality. No VOTC, but a good passable figure and army builder.
