Is that regrind on my Galaxy?

That's regrind, isn't it? So that means I can do nothing about it, right?  :cry:

Classic regrind spots.

At least you are in good company!

Mine has a few things that kinda look like that too. Just think of them as birthmarks!

Nooo  :( thank you guys, I was already suspecting it, but hoped it might be something obscure that can be fixed! Sigh, so this is my second Galaxy now that has serious issues. One day I will find a real upgrade! (Maybe BF releases the TE ponies at some point and they come to EU too :D ).

Galaxy is prone to this problem.  That's how they made that colour of hot pink, by mixing other colours together!

I wonder if eventually... they’ll ALL have regrind? :(

Sadly I've found those colours seem to be prone to it  :cry:

That's disappointing :(

The regrind is only happening on her head, the body looks great. Maybe I'll find a good head at some point and then I'll just frankenstein my Galaxy!

Poor thing, you just never know what will happen to ponies over time. She's still lovely nonetheless.

Regrind is a cost cutting measure that's still used today but they know more about its instability now. Basically, colors like red were/are more expensive to make, so factories would reuse parts of molds that would leak out, and toss them in with a fresh batch of plastics. Since the reused parts have already been heated the chemical make-up differs from the new beads. If over (I think, but don't quote me) 30% of a batch is reground then you get what we see on older plastics like ponies. Today they still do it but in much less quantity.
