I am thinking of adding a loose Takara wind up R2D2 to my collection and there seems to be a few about.
My question is, having never seen one in the flesh, what does a mint one look like?
For instance, I have seen pictures of them highly graded by in baggies etc with copper coloured winding shafts but also in more of a silver. Is the copper a sign of age or are some like this to start with?
Also, the stickers on the front and back tend to be not so clear on a lot I have seen. Is this how they come or is this degradation?
Be good to see photos of what a truly mint one looks like.
Thanks in advance!
