Man, I was just looking at some of my loose figs, I had a REALLY nice SS v1. But the friggin' upper right arm is yellowing. It's like it must've just started in the last month or so. Man...I was so proud of that one. OH well, what can ya do? Just gotta find another.

what were you keeping it stored in? gotta keep it in a closed case, hell maybe even a zip lock bag

As i said about yellowing once before i have kept my v1 storm shadow in an airtight bag for almost ten years and he still went yellow. I guess you can just be unlucky sometimes. :(

isnt there some substance that some people laminate their figures in? makes them more shiny or something? wonder if that helps them hold their color to...

Its not the air its the light I have my 3 V1 storm shadows in bags with the rest of my figures for that year in a tote in the dark spot of my closet. Hey navajo I may have a extra arm clean email me to remind me to check if u want it
