TWO LEFT HANDS!
« on: March 25, 2013, 02:05 PM »
Wow.  I have never had this happen before.  I just opened my realistic Clone Wars Obi-Wan and found out he had two left hands.  Has this happened to anyone else?  I have maybe 500 figures with wrist joints, the fact that this has never happened before is pretty amazing.

I've had a figure or two with the same foot before.  Also ball joints fused/melted into the regular limb.  That was the most frustrating because it happened on my Satipo figure from the Indy box set.  Still kinda pissed about that one.

My realistic CW Ahsoka had two of the same feet so I got another one cheap and my mix-up went into the fodder bin...  It happens.  I've maybe had 4 or 5 figures out of the thousands total I have that it's happened, but it does happen.

Two figures from Hong Kong seller. One was a scout trooper with two right calves/ankles (two holsters!). The other was a less noticable Juno Eclipse with two right calves. I had copies of both, so no biggie.

Reminds me of the Jedi Luke that came in the POTJ Skiff with the hips on backwards.

They released a Skiff in the POTJ line?  I remember one in the POTF2 line, but not POTJ....

Was it POTF2?

It was a late POTF2 item, when the packaging changed a bit with the green burst not unlike the Power of the Jedi packaging.

Just noticed this perusing the forms, but I have gotten two of the same hands when I ordered from one of the Hong Honk sellers like Scockery.

Should start a swap program with people with right hands.

I got one figure from HK with fused limbs actually.  The insert-mold process flubbed and wound up fusing.  I cut the limbs loose.

I got a TIE Pilot in a set of figures I bought at TRU with a horribly distorted upper left leg though too.  **** happens.
