i really do miss that white plastic. it looked so much better, very unique.
it's a shame they switched to black.
back in the days white plastic separated the toys from the real stuff for me...
never understood why they did that change :(

Maybe because the white tended to yellow and gave the shops a hard time to sell 'older' part?

The most sensible explanation I have heard (someone here said it but I can't remember who), beside the fact that almost everybody dyed them black anyway, was that Associated started using cheaper, not-so-virgin nylon, and it probably didn't look quite as good un-dyed.
