    Green chest armor DENGAR ???

    Hello all! Someone I know who is also a vintage SW collector showed me something at his house this week that I had no answer for, and after trying to find information on my own and striking out, here I am to ask the real source for answers

    So this Dengar obviously has green chest armor and after close inspection of it against another normal one, it honestly looks to be a factory paint app.

    I don't know anything about Dengar, so if this is just some normal discoloration for his figure, then I'm sorry to waste everyone's time! He (the owner) told me that he had bought this from another collector who also had gave him a Kenner baggie (not pictured) and rifle that he said went with the Dengar figure.

    Any info is appreciated! Thank you all!

    I have a few of these, although by looking at it you would swear its painted green and is a variant, it is in fact more colour fading, the purple has faded over the years into a green.
    Many years ago i too thought that it must be a variant, but reading up about this over the years, the general consensus seems to be that its just fading, ive also got a few that are in between purple and green, a real beater thats almost lime green, and some that have never faded.

    Boba Fett, Yoda, Greedo, Gamorean, Endor Rebel, Klatuu and Prune Face should be the only SW toys with green parts.

    Dengar's armour is known to discolour to green sometimes.

    The green armour on your figure looks very bright green though. Not like a faded / discoloured paint.
    Might it be painted? It looks there there is still some purple paint visible on the edge at the right.

    Thank you all for the info! It has to be the best discoloring I've seen yet (that doesn't look like just a sign of aging)....will definitely need to get myself one!

    Must just be some shadow in the picture or something because I inspected the heck out of it and there's no other paint under it and the lines are perfect when compared to a regular, non faded one.

    OK that's a good thing. Thanks for clarifying.

    Then we are looking at a discoloured figure, IMO.
    Looks quite cool, though.
