    Cool photo. I mashed-up my guys once upon a time... and then I decided I wanted them back in their original configurations. That part wasn't as much fun.

    So sweet! They look great with those old toasters.

    After years of wanting one, I finally landed a Gacha Mecha just recently -- The clear with chrome guts version. I'd assume that everyone else's is a bit yellowed too? Yellowed clear vinyl doesn't necessarily bother me, I am just curious.

    Thanks! Those are 8-track players.

    Yes. I have five different clear gacha mechas and they are all yellow. Something must be up with the vinyl they used for these guys. Mine have been stored in a box with zero sunlight for most of their life so it's not exposure to light that caused it.

    Oh wow, that's reassuring -- Thanks, Chuck!

    I was totally kidding about the toasters bit. :)

    Same experience here. Most of my Gachas are some combination of yellowed, cloudy or greasy.

    It's weird because the clear purple, and smoke versions are perfectly fine. Greasy is the worst, I have 1 or 2 of those too :(

    I wish I could get my hands on more of these guys. I find the same extreme yellowing with the clear buta thrashman, must be the same vinyl

    I only had one of these, the box it came in looked like it was from 25 years from now

    Did they all have that type package?

    Most of mine came with the box accept for a few lucky bag gachas.
