I noticed that almost all the Baymax figures I saw looked faded. A lot of reviewers on Amazon also complained that he was faded. I took a gamble and ordered it anyway. Sure enough, it arrived faded. We shrugged, figuring my I could just repaint it. So we took it out and that's when we noticed that the "faded" red actually had a powder film on it. After rubbing it with a microfiber cloth and a q-tip, it looked just as red as the rest! Near as we can figure, whoever manufactured this series somehow forgot to clean the film off? Well, regardless, it's a beautiful sculpture with true colors if you're willing to put in some elbow grease.
