nice, but why not peroxide? sandpaper and a file would damage it would it not?

I heard those that used the peroxide have found the TFs they used it on have re-yellowed and are even worse now. Just a warning for those considering this option.

Thanks go out to SmokescreenGT for this awesome sig!

Sandpaper and a file???
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that's a terrible solution: the yellowing is caused by exposure of plastic to UV-light: filing off the outer layer is just exposing a new layer of plastic to turn yellow! At least with peroxide, the same layer of plastic will turn yellow, without actual surface damage.

I've tried the peroxide on a G1 scourge, and it worked, but the places with stichers also got lighter too.

Ah yes... this old forum topic gives a bit more info (and proves I'm not making this up!)
I can't help but laugh at that. Maybe that's part of the reason he's so expensive. He's a very simple toy by the looks of things, I just need him to go with Darkwing, who's always been one of my favorites.

That looks immaculate, the Horrorcons were simply marvellous. I had both as a child and they are still in good working condition today, I was completely enamored by those as a kid.

Congratulations on an excellent purchase.

All the best

Nice score!!!!!!!! I can match you with the exception of Bludgeon, so much pain to part with $$$$ to get the small Pretenders lol

I will get there and it looks like they are all in very nice condition as well

BWS or its medical name "Bitch Waist Syndrome" is a horrible disease afflicting Transformer reality and fiction. It was first popularized by Alex Milne and has now spread to Hasbro itself. By working together we can make progress on this horrible affliction.
