    Did you compare it to any other Ice Cream Twin sets? It looks like it's scuplted detail, since it IS a "rusty ice cream truck" after all.

    On mine it looks like it's in random spots all over the figure. It looks like they were trying to replicate rust or something to that nature.

    Seems to apparently be sculpted rust, but the illusion doesn't work so well when there's no rust-colored paint.

    I don't see any melted areas.

    However, I do see sculpted detail.

    ???
