OK... So this is a Luke Farmboy I picked up a little while ago......

It was completely repainted with a toothpick stuck up his arm.... Sad

So I took a liitle time and Windex (glass cleaner), and let it soak and then ran some water over it and voila.......... the true figure is revealed!

Great job Jay, definitely looks much better. To me I don't really mind beaters (especially a blank raised bar Luke Wink it adds character to the figure and let's you know someone really enjoyed it. Or maybe it was Sid's toy lol (only if you watched toy story) ha.
