your worst figure
« on: June 13, 2003, 02:28 AM »
We all have found loose figures at garage sales, flea markets, and eBay lots.  Post a pic of the poorest condition figure that you have (in one piece), and where did you find him???

My worst is a Yoda with ears that were chewed up. Since they are chewed they are slightly flattened and are about 1 1/2 times longer than normal.  His finger tips have been painted black. Poor looking little guy but I had to save him and put him in Dagobahs old folks home. Found him at a rummage sale with some other old figs.

None of my figures are incredibly damaged, but my C3PO is probably in the worst shape. He has the loose-limb syndrome, unfortunately.

Here is a Death Star Droid that my friend gave me this week for helping him sort some Joes.  If you hold his chest and shake him, he will do a little dance! ;D :D :)

I think I have a tie with two of my vintage figures.  My C-3P0 is missing the upper half of his torso (snapped in half), and he's missing both arms and his head.  And no, it's not the one with the removeable limbs either.  He's in terrible shape.  My other one is my 2-1B figure.  I have all the limbs, head and torso, but he's cracked in a few spots but can unbelievably still stand upright.

I own a vintage Ewok now.  That's pretty awful, isn't it? ;D :-*

I’d say this was pretty messed up. Found it in my local indoor market yesterday, for 25p ;D. Someone has drilled a hole in his neck and glued in a match stick to hold his decapitated head on. He even has plenty of glue residue around his neck, just to add to his attractiveness. On the up-side, once his head is pushed down onto his shoulders, you can’t really tell that he’s been “repaired” :)

That's pretty funny Rob!  Looks like one of them long necked aliens, or a bobble-head doll - not sure which!   :D

I don't think I have any vintage figures in less than near mint to mint condition.  I kept really good care of them all when I was a kid, and all of the POTF figures I picked up later on in life were minty fresh as well.

The only figure of mine that ever sustained any type of damage was my Death Star Droid who was along for the ride in my pocket, when I tripped and fell and busted his poor hand clean off (discussed right here in greater detail).  But you'll see that I quickly disposed of it in favor of my best friend's mint and undamaged DSD!  Little did he know...   ;D

That's a great item there Rob!  It's a shame that was done to a Rebel Soldier though...  :'(
