When my girlfriend decided to go to graduate school, we put a desk underneath my main loose figure shelf area.
Figures fall off all the time - if you close the door too quickly, after a dusting or re-arranging etc...
So anyway, one time one fell and I found the gun but couldn't find the figure anywhere. I assumed it had fallen under the bed or something.
A day later, he turns up - at the bottom of a coffee mug, limbs stained brown as hell, torso fresh white.
Had to toss that one.
