If only they made Whisk in 3 3/4" scale....
Over the past few months, I've noticed a disturbing trend...strange reddish stains began appearing on my figures. It was especially noticeable on white figures. A precious VOTC stormtrooper now sports a big red gash on his helmet...and my stormtrooper belt accessory is now virtually a stylish pink color.
I eventually discovered the culprit - or so I thought...I figured that since the belt got stained while trying to put it on my maroon painted custom figure for the interactive photonovel that the maroon paint was somehow coming off, onto my fingers, then onto the toys.
But so many more toys seemed affected than just ones I handled after handling that maroon figure.
Over the week-end, I learned the REAL source of the stains. I keep my figures stored in stackable plastic "christmas ornament" boxes. One of these boxes has a green lid...the other, a red lid.
It was the red plastic LID that is staining the figures! After touching the lid, then a figure - presto! A pink, "blushing" figure. I almost totally soiled poor Mon Mothma's dress while making this discovery.
So here's my problem: the crap won't come off! I tried soap and water, nail polish remover and alcohol!
Help! I need some heavy duty stuff here to clean off these infected figures! Any suggestions??
