    AFA graded MOTU's

    Hi guys,

    This is my first thread.
    I am relatively new to collecting vintage MOTU figures, but I did grow up watching He-man as a child.
    I will say, this hobby is not for the faint of heart. Especially for someone like myself who is picky of what goes in my collection.

    I only have a few AFA graded MOTU figures with clear bubbles, but I have been noticing many AFA graded figures that graded clear, meanwhile the blister is discolored.

    Has anyone else experienced this with their own collection?
    A bubble turning yellow even within a UV protected case?

    Hi Clayrebel,

    Welcome to the boards!

    I also collect vintage MOCs, and have several graded versions. This is not uncommon. I have acquired several in the past that graded with a clear bubble, yet you can obviously see the bubble has yellowed (in some cases quite bad). I try to keep all of mine out of direct sunlight, and limit their exposure to any light at all.

    Hope this helps!

    My Beast Man has yellowing , I guess they might've used a bad batch of plastic.

    My Teela also seem to have green on the bracelets , I guess it's the same type of paint they used on Randor ?
