So are all clone/storm trooper helemts going to be green from this point out?  I'd be kinda pissed to have to spend the time to "clean" a toy straight out of the packaging.

Better than getting it and it's in the plastic, and can't be removed at all.

It's a production issue, but if there's a fix that's a lot better than what people have been dealing with till now.

Considering those helmets are already silly looking to me due to the sculpt, I won't be worrying about these techniques on that figure as I didn't buy any Phase 2 clone with this sculpt... but I might try it on some other white armored figures that have had some yellowing happen in other areas.

Yeah, and its not a very good option for those of us who still keep some figures carded.   :P

I'm guessing the yellowing is a fluke of sorts.  Some kind of factory faux paux that I'd hope is at least receiving a little attention.  Still though, seeing a fix, any fix, is a positive I think. 

I've fixed a number of the Sandtroopers I'd bought more for the rifle than anything back earlier in the year...  Now that they're usable troopers, I'm pretty happy with that.  Plus it makes the Wave 5 Stormtrooper more appealing to me, though the price still will keep me away I'd guess.
