I'm going through my figures trying to pair them up with weapons. I have a Raph that is definitely the Shogun Raph figure, but he isn't gold or the shiny silver. He is silver, but its a dull silver. I can see my reflection in my Mikey Shogun, but my Raph is more plastic silver than chrome silver.

I don't really see another one online. He has the blue weapon set that came with the chromey figure. It doesn't look like that chrome just wore off, because its evenly dull.

I can post a pic, but wasn't gonna bother if its a common thing you can ID from description haha.

id say post a pic anyway but it sounds to me like the regular release shogun raph from movie 3, all 4 turtles have the same hard plastic and movie color look..the chrome ones where released later if i remember right...never owned those personally

Probably just degraded from being in storage. I've seen it before.

Upon closer inspection, it looks like it actually didn't have ANY color, and someone painted it with a paint brush silver O__O? Weird.

Sorry, been going nuts trying to pair this stuff off haha. I finally finished, and I still have a whole bunch of stuff from turtles I lost over the years >_<

Here it is:

Its definitely been hand painted (and poorly). I VERY vaguely remember asking my dad to paint it. I think I got it thinking it glowed in the dark, but then it was just unpainted.

In some spots you can see that it was white before painting.

Looks more like the vac-metal outer coat is coming off, like a lot of Chrome Domes did.

Yep. Like I said, degrading from age/storage.
