Breaking?
 
Ever break any action figures? :D

Yesterday, I broke my Leia Bespin when I threw it at a wall. That was hillarous. She just exploded. :lol: Ask Taters, he was there, too. ;)

I didn't break it, but the saber for Kt Fisto broke on mine. The crappy legs hasbro built for him wouldn't stay up, and he fell over and broke.

Do anything.... evil... to it? ^_^

Reclaimer 08-20-2003 10:03 PM

No. It broke from old age. :(

daring dueler 08-21-2003 01:44 PM

yeah z. that was hilarious, because it wasnt my leia;)

at least it was a clean break..

ive purposely broken figures, customs....

reclaimer, what happened to the luke?

Katarn07 08-21-2003 04:01 PM

How can a vintage Luke be 1994-2003? It would be 1977-2003. And if you have vintage confused with PotF2, it's 1995-2003 ;)

I have never broken anything. Things have been broken in my collection, but they did it due to cheap design or just age....

12" Chewie and Vader have their arms held on by rubberbands. Well, being over 25 years old as of this year, the bands are crap. Chewie's band snapped earlier this year, and his arms flew from his torso like some things being ejected from a space shuttle :p Vader is fine, for the time being :) Now, I see that in an FAQ and Rebel Scum, they tell you how to fix it. Well, I didn't do that. I used super glue. :rolleyes:

Another thing was my Acklay. I set him up on all his legs, but gravity pulled his body down and the joints were bent in a strange way. One of the joints broke. (stupid gravity! :mad: ) Superglued that too. I used a pillar of clay to hold him up so that won't happen again.

Umm, I was very careful when playing and never broke a figure. I remember once I lost SotE Luke's helmet, so me and my friend stopped playing and looked around for it ALL day and didn't play. It was in the PotF2's landspeeders hood :p

Reclaimer 08-21-2003 09:12 PM

I got it in 1994.

daring dueler 08-21-2003 11:08 PM

you got vintage luke in 1994? original, or the potf/return of the jedi?


i only broke a few on purpose, but had 2 already(customs)
ive had some break by falling, but not badly.

(i remmebr whne you told me of the rubberbands lol)

How did you get a Luke the year before POTF2 came out. That seems quite hard, since Luke was the first figure made.

daring dueler 08-23-2003 01:16 AM

well, it is possible, but it would have to be from a toy shhow, or shop i think? unless stores carried it still.....

Katarn07 08-23-2003 01:21 AM

I think he means a vintage one purchased in 1994. It'd still be 77-03 though ;)

I don't think they caried them up to 1994. I would have seen them in stores, I would have remembered them..... And, I doubt him going to a colelctor's shop when he was 5 was the case... :dozey:

EDIT - Katarn - No **** sherlock! :p

daring dueler 08-23-2003 01:31 AM

i know, they werent new, but some stores put outr old stock(orange luke at tru for you z)


but its till unlikely, so it was probly at a flee market rite?

KBell 08-24-2003 08:07 PM

You guys ever think he might be lying :P

No. What possibly put the idea of him lying in your head? :confused: :rolleyes:

Guys, a vintage Luke is not at all hard to find. It was my first SW action figure (along with 9 other vintage figures ;)) a few months before the PotF2 guys were even released.That was in 1995.

And if Reclaimer says he found it at TRUs, I'll say he's full of BS inthis story, but if he got it at some shop, why is that so hard to believe?

Reclaimer 08-24-2003 09:19 PM

Yeah there's a Toy Shop down the road from where I live heck they still got Vintage everything because I'm like there only cosumer they get ecept one or two passer by ers.

daring dueler 08-25-2003 12:21 AM

how the hell do they stay in buisness?

Reclaimer 08-25-2003 09:58 AM

Why the hell WOULD they stay in business, if your the only customer, except a few random people?

Reclaimer 08-25-2003 11:22 AM

I Have NO clue why but he has a lot of action figures.

daring dueler 08-25-2003 12:53 PM

Katarn07 08-29-2003 11:46 PM

Stupid sabers!

Its a good figure, but the jumping is stupid. I think they want you to break it so you'll buy another one. :rolleyes:

daring dueler 09-01-2003 10:29 PM

hasbro must have bought out the super glue factory too:p
