10212 Imperial Shuttle - Color Variantions

drawen22drawen22 San DiegoMember Posts: 1
Hello, 

I have a question for those who own the 10212 UCS Shuttle (new, not bricklinked). I purchased mine used and it came with box and everything so it seems it is an original. However, the white pieces have color variations between them. One tint is white and the other is a bit creamy white. I took some pictures and posted them to the flick below. Is this normal for this set? It is hard to tell from pictures on the internet whether the other 10212s have the same issue.

    Welcome.

    Unfortunately, that looks like normal brick discoloration. I haven't built the 10212, but I have seen the exact same type of discoloration on other sets, including the older, minifig scale Imperial Shuttles. There are a bunch of threads on the forum regarding this, including this one which I thought was really informative:

    Hope that helps.

    You only have 2 tints of white on yours? Lucky you! :P

    I can assure you that as an owner of one fresh set opened and built at the time it was still in production, mine has variances, not only across the model, but even within the same parts on said model. Whitey-white, grey white, blue white, creamy white, it all adds to the weathered look!
