I was at a collectible show this weekend, and found someone selling core technobots for real cheap. I got Scattershot, Nosecone, Lightspeed, and a poor condition m Strafe (all w/o accessories) for under $30. Anyways, I would like to ask for some advice on how to restore them. 1st, I have seen pictures of them, where the lighter parts are super white. Mine have minor yellowing. I don't remember them in G1, but were the white parts always super white when they came out Also, how do you guys usually hunt for G1 accessories parts besides eBay?
