    I was wondering if I were to soak the white parts in 3% hydrogen peroxide would it whiten any non-white plastics. My star saber has yellowing on his arms and there are red plastic parts on it. Would it whiten them too?

    I've experimented this whitening process on both Dai Atlas (Blue parts) & Overlord (Purple parts.)

    I don't see colored parts fading away/becoming faint. Instead they seemed alot more cleaner than before. (I supposed the yellowing had really eaten into that 2 figures of mine so with that process, they got "redeemed," in a way.)

    My opinions. :)

    It worked for my g1 jetfire. Just be careful about painted parts/metal and remove all screws...

    from what i've seen so far. the colour doesn't fade away but i find it removes the sheen. quite a lot of it actually.

    some peeps sell it off as mint without saying its been recondition. you can tell if its been recondition once its in your hands.

    I have a gi joe storm shadow that looks almost entirely yellow. if I give him the peroxide bath would it take off his black paint or red cobra logo?
