Yellowing on my Hanekawa Tsubasa scale figureYellowing on my Hanekawa Tsubasa scale figure

Good day, MFC!

I was just doing my random cleaning of my figures, and I noticed that Hanekawa Tsubasa-san's (ITEM #41761) knee and leg are yellowish, not in the same tone as her thigh.

Here are the photos I've taken:

It's not quite obvious in photos, but in reality her knee and leg below it are really yellow when compared to her thigh.

I've visited this blog (BLOG #18776), thinking the same problem applies. I've also tried the responses, ie the one using eraser and water+vinegar mixture from: BLOG #13018

With the eraser, nothing changed, and so I tried the mixture.
However, for the water+vinegar mixture, I've only soaked cotton and rubbed it on her knee instead of submerging the figure fully; I'm afraid it might affect the paint, etc..

So far, nothing has happened; her knee and leg are still yellow compared to her thigh.. :'(

And yeah, she isn't exposed to sunlight, or near any source of light; she's displayed in a room, on a shelf, shaded.

Can I do something else to remove this yellowing?

EDIT:
I wasn't able to notice this one when I first got her, so I have no idea if she arrived in this state, or something just happened recently.. So yeah, follow up question would be, is this normal? I mean, does she really have this color change? For those who also have her, does your Hanekawa-san also have this one? If so, then I needn't worry about it - I guess..

Thank you very much, and apologies for the inconvenience.

Regards,

Appears to be normal airbrush shading to me, it's noticeable in other users pictures too.

Tofukins (10 mies. temu) #45649175I think this is normal.
Having a look back at what others have posted on their Hanekawa it looks like it's suppose to be like that.
This photo was posted up 1 year ago and as you can see closer to the knees is yellowish

Hope this helps!
Kyree (10 mies. temu) #45651769Appears to be normal airbrush shading to me, it's noticeable in other users pictures too.Hoppou (10 mies. temu) #45659930I can confirm here as well! It's similar on my Hanekawa too! Take care <3vgadict (10 mies. temu) #45663780Plastics like PVC will turn yellowish as they age. This occurs more rapidly if the plastic is exposed to a source of ultraviolet light (sunlight, fluorescent lights and certain types of incandescent lights). So depending on where the figure was displayed, that could explain it.
If other copies of the same figure are showing the yellowing in the same spot, that could be related to how the paint was applied in that area. For example, if the paint layer was thinner in that area, the yellowing due to the plastic aging might be more obvious there compared to other areas with a thicker layer or different color of paint.

Good day! Apologies for the late response..
Thank you all for your answers! It's good to know that everything's fine, she's good, and nothing has happened to her.. It's relieving that the coloring on her knee and below appears to be normal - and I was just being paranoid; I thought something happened to my beloved catgirl..
Again, thank you very much for your responses!
