Is anyone's Universe Prowl starting to yellow? What should i do to remove it.
he was kinda pre yellowed i think... kinda like the rts jazz and generations drift. they are all about the same shade of yellow, or should be.
ive used hydrogen peroxide in a clear plastic tub covered with plastic wrap and sunlight to de-yellow gi joe figures and vehicles, but ive never tried transformers.
This should help:
He was never a really good shade of white, Just like Jazz, Drift, Jetfire and Magnus, he was always a little off. In certain lighting he can look like a nice, pure white. So he may not be yellowing, you could just be seeing his normal color.
So do i have to dissaemble Prowl?
it looks like this person has a full explanation. i can say from my experience, you dont need the expensive "salon grade" 30% hydrogen peroxide. especially for something like this that is not super old and yellowed.
ive never tried it with a transformers, and ive never disassembled a transformer, so i cant help ya there. : ( i would disassemble the joe stuff, especially the vehicles and only soak the yellowing plastic parts.
i dont think the rest of prowl would be damaged if you used 3% for a few hours in direct sunlight and just kept checking regularly. just dont expect him to get super white though, cause he never was.
I wouldn't mind if it was only slightly yellowed. Just keep your white TFs out of the sun. I keep mine in a set of shelves in my cupboard, and the others outside. I'd only worry if it was deeply yellowed.
I'd say keep ALL of your TFs out of the sun
Poor Prowl. Yellowing, Sticky paint....I think he got the shaft.
watch out for exposure to those new energy saving light bulbs too. i forget the deal but they are real bad for yellowing stuff.
Not to thread hijack, but at least you don't have a Pinkyhide.
he's off white, and beware putting him in peroxide, it will fade the paint as well
