You guys need to look up Retr0brite.  Thereís a Clairol product Iíll get the name of when I get home from vacation that works as well as the formula does and is premixed, but Iím not sure what it would do to black parts of a stormtrooper.  I have enough that Iíd be totally happy to try it though.

I might have to look that up.  I've got loads of VOTC Stormtroopers and Scout Troopers that could probably use the treatment just from having looked at some of my carded figures that I was looking through earlier this week.

The Stormtrooper and Lando (and a few other new ones) are up on Hasbro Pulse now... limit two, but I finally managed to order a pair at regular prices...

FYI, here's the Retrobrite youtube video I watched where this guy dissects the whole thing...

And here's a link to the hair care product he found was as effective without having to create a recipe:

Chewie is in stock for $6 on Amazon through seller Kickiní Toys with free shipping. I ordered one, so Iíll see how good the packing is.

Continuing the discussion, I'm still not sure if I've got the process down pat yet. There has absolutely been a remarkable difference in the figures I've Hydrogen Peroxided in general, but some still maintain a greenish tinge. Also, it seems that the scout troopers I'm nearly complete whitened are yellowing already after a week. Trying to let the figure soak longer, see if that makes any difference. I've got tons of time.

Yeah, I'd say it's not a perfect solution, but it does give a bit more time with these figures. Mine didn't get 100% white, since the plastic in the torso and the plastic in the limbs is different, but it got them to a really acceptable point. I haven't noticed my figures re-yellowing though. That's new.
