some time ago i bought a stormtrooper luke with a very much yellowed helmet.
the seller sold it as genuine back then.

but i have never seen another helmet which has yellowed like that anywhere else.
so i'm not really sure anymore if it is really genuine or not.
the overall look and the feeling of the material feels right though.

i read somewhere that it is supposed to be made out of the same material as the torso of the stormtroopers which can also yellow very much.

has anybody seen another yellowed luke stormy helmet?
or could it be a repro?
what do you guys think?

Wow, looks like it sat on a window sill for 10 years! How yellow is Luke's torso compared to the helmet?

I'm staring at these pictures and it also seems weird to me that the inside is as yellowed as the outside. Seems like the outside should be worse than the inside?

yeah right, it's really strange.
i didn't think about that back then when i bought it.
luckily i didn't pay that much for it back then.
but it would be an unique repro then even.

Figures buried in sand or dirt will discolor over the entire area.
