Help with weird holes inside a G1 (Mild Trypophobia warning!)
« on: August 20, 2019, 10:23:39 AM »
Hi folks,

Can anyone help me figure out some weird holes found inside a G1?

I cleaned up a Sugar Apple, and she looks perfect from the outside but has several types of holes inside her. Some of these holes are 'Swiss cheese'-type holes, one is slightly bumpy, and the others are almost open (as in just hidden below a thin layer of vinyl).

I've attached some pictures for reference sake.

Does anyone know if this is mold/fungus? Any help would be great. I'm hoping it's just some harmless defect or plastic deterioration.

Best wishes!

They are air bubbles in the plastic, that were created when she was made and perfectly normal :)

Thanks for replying, Pinkkittywinks.

I thought that might possibly be the case, but I couldn't remember ever seeing these inside any other G1s. Then again, I only have a dozen or so.

Dont panic, it's normal. Manufacturing process... have you ever seen how they would have made a g1?

I've had a few ponies where the plastic is so thin in spots that they've had holes (usually by the feet)...
