Maybe it's just me

Postby Prospect » Tue Apr 15, 2014 7:28 pm

I could be crazy, it wouldn't be the first time.
BUT
I got Zelnogrard Berig a good time back, and have loved her since. One thing that has always bothered me though--is her skin tone. I have always done my best to look past it but whenever she is in just the right light her true colors show.
It really bothers me.

In a short bit of denial I looked up her corresponding flesh color and it too looks off. By this I mean the color of her face/head piece does not match her body skin color.


As you can see her skin looks considerably more pink.
Has anyone else noticed this? Am I crazy? Is mine a misscolor?

Has anyone got a Zelly they can snap a shot of for me to confirm the proper coloration?

It would've been better to post this in the toy discussion subforum, rather than GD.

This is the first I've heard of or seen this, but then again, I don't have one myself.

Would be interested to find out as well.

the pic of your zel makes the difference obvious, but i think that is mostly just the lighting exaggerating the difference. although i can see a very slight difference in the flesh shinki pic you posted, i would chalk the difference up to the material used and the finish applied to it.
although i don't think there's much you can do about it short of repainting the entire figure.

Also check out Alex's WTB Thread and we'll see if we can strike a deal!

That's pretty much what I'm feeling like. =\
I may end up just going with the original Zel look and getting a naked black mms

I have no idea of what happened, but mine isn't that pink.
Maybe you've left it in the sun? A friend of mine who exposed his figures in a place that had strong sunlight found out his figures were getting darker.
Have you used any cleaning products on her?
Did you get it for cheap on Taobao? (May be a factory reject)

I got her on Mandarake
No abnormal sunlight (no windowsill or anything close to a window)
haven't cleaned her passed rubbing dust off with my thumb.

Was it used or brand new?
I won't rule out the possibility of a defective item.
