Recently I've been trying to build up my vintage Thundercats collection. In searching on Ebay I've noticed some figures with age spots or fungus or something. What is this?
Here's an example... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Thundercats-Pum ... 1093309288

Is this something you can wash off? Or erase? Without damaging the figure. Will this happen to all of them in time? Looks like it mostly happens with Pumyra, Lynxo, and Ben Gali, but I've seen it on Cheetarah and Tygra as well.

I believe it is a mold growing in the plastic. Usually the result of a lower grade plastic being used in the manufacturing process.

It can be washed off but it will grow back after time.

I don't have much experience with this personally though, so I am sure others here will have more info for you.
