Attactix Breaking?
« Reply #75 on: August 1, 2005, 10:57 AM »
I bought a few sets of Attactix for my 9 year old nephew yesterday.  Within an hour of moderate play, two of the "strikers' were no longer working.  The springs just gave up.  Is this common?

I started buying these and have had a hard time tracking them down in calgary alberta.  Every time a store gets them in there all gone with in the week.  I have a possible lead on getting a case but I'm still waiting to here back on a price.  But at the moment I'm missing:

#11 Count Dooku
#13 Grievous Bodyguard
#14 Neimoidian Guard
#16 Darth Vader
#17 Palpatine
#18 Ki-Adi-Mundi
#22 Chewbacca
#24 Emperir
#25 Nute Gunray
#26 Anakin Skywalker
#27 Obi-won Kenobi
#29 Tarfful
#30 Yoda

For trade I don't have much but I do have:
#1 Battle Droid
#2 Super Battle Droid (2)
#4 Clone trooper
#28 General Grievous (2)

I'm missing most of the silver bases.

As with most toys today unfortunately they aren't made like the old metal Tonka trucks that today, I would feel safer sitting on and rolling down my hill in than my Hyundai. ;^)   

Yeah the springs I think have a tendancy to go, I've hear a few other stories with one here and there going, I think one the waist failed to turn properly.   My guess is people playing want to really try and pull these things back too far causing them to snap or break.  I don't play with mine, so I don't have a first hand account.

Funny, they just don't make toys like they used to.  Either way, it's still a pretty fun line.  I'd somewhat expect with a toy of this nature some wear and tear would occur, and expect some to break from time to time.

Star Wars and toy Collector since 1978(age 7).  currently over 6,500 SW items in my personal collection. Collect modern/vintage and everything in-between ;^)

I don't collect these, but I happened to see this news over at GH's main page.  I'm sure collectors of this line are happy to get a Jabba the Hutt, but to me, this just looked a little....strange.
