The Sun-tanned He-man

I saw this poor He-man on eBay. I've asked the seller for a better picture, I didn't say what it was for!!!

Apperently, the sun on Eternia isn't as strong as on Earth, so the He-men who arrived here have suffered terribley over the years!

As I explained in my last post, the plastic used on He-man's upper torso was made of a different plastic to his arms and legs. The legs arms and particularly the head (I think it's called a rotocast head?) tend to fade to a greyish tone, whereas the body goes distinctly yellow.

The same thing is happening in my bathroom with my shower fittings!
