I have Party Time and the rest of her party pack setmates. Mine has horrible regrind to the point that I have to be careful when handling her because if my hand touches a regrind area for too long my hand will feel like it is burning.

Hmm. I wonder if your allergic to something on her? Is it all ponies with regrind?

Okay, I hope this works, trying this for the first time...I've never tried to post a picture on here before, but here goes. This is my Party Time; she needs to be cleaned, but she looks surprisingly good, with very little regrind. Few faint pink spots along her hairline and forehead. Her hair is pinker than what shows up in the pic, but is still about 50% faded, I'd say.

 :shocked:  Wow...like it's radioactive or something! I didn't know regrind could do that...crazy!

I think it has something to do with the reaction that causes the plastic to break down. I'm allergic to latex so that also might be part of the reason.

I have one and she didn't develop noticeable regrind until the last couple of years. Now she has some spots on her head. Her hair is still pink but it's faded.

I really like her, however I they all need keeping in stable conditions otherwise they just get regrind and break down. If I can't display her, I don't see the point in having her so I've decided to pass. I'd love to see a BF version though! I think a G1 - G4 custom would be lovely too.

I just wanna pop back in here and quote myself from a different thread about regrind:

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.

Regrind isn't the plastic "breaking down" and this is a pet peeve of mine but plastic doesn't break down at all - that's what makes it plastic and why it's so bad for the environment  ^^;

I'd love it if you could get somewhere with this. I don't know how difficult the electroplating might be but I know someone I could ask. In other news I found this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Iridescent-Holographic-Clear-Transparent-PVC-Fabric-Vinyl-Material-Bow-Craft-Bag/323635764528?var=512639684139&hash=item4b5a31dd30:g:SBQAAOSwxuRdRBaH

Not sure if that's of interest to anyone because it has a similar effect.

Have her. She was perfect when I bought her, but recently when I looked at her she's developed regrind. Sigh.

I haven't gotten so far as to consider the electroplating. I was going to figure out how to even cast the eyes, make some in pretty resin colors,maybe glitters...then once I got the casting down I would consider figuring out the plating. Iridescent powders in clear varnish is another option, I think.
