Thats really interesting. The side thrusters are chrome. If you mean the little bits on the outside of the pods the legs are on thats v v rare. Mine are either red or yellow. New(ish) here myselfI just bought an all white eagle off of ebay yesterday. It has chrome engine bells and chrome outside thrusters, don't know about the pod thrusters. I didn't buy it because of any rarity, but rather because I personally think that Eagles should be white, not green (although I like the green ones as well because I had one as a kid). Fortunately, mine was not advertised as an original, so I knew what I was getting. it is interesting that the paint on the pod seems to be worn about the same amount as the paint on the main body...someone must have swapped pods on this one a long time ago. Either way, I don't really care what color it is, since I will now have my first intact Eagle in over 25 years.
