Went to the hardware store today and got some plumbing tape wrapped it around all his limbs and he stands once again, probably the first time in decades!

Fantastic Fett Poncho yay

Love the repair job with plumbers tape idea . I have used thread on some of my custom figures that had really loose joints just to get them to stand but the tape thing sounds like it would work even better What a Face

I think [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] has a cool collection of misfit figures?

I've been accumulating a team of reject/altered/deformed/disfigured figures for about a decade now (whoa, that's crazy to think about!). I haven't added that much lately, but it's still a cherished part of my collection.

Here are a few of my favorites:

This is actually my childhood X-Wing which was passed onto me by my older half brother, along with a few of my childhood B-Wing Pilots.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Greedo after some sort of accident.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
One of the more frightening examples, what Skye referred to as the "BATMAN Jerry Hall" Rancor Keeper.

Perhaps the most disturbing, this "Insane Clown Posse" Ben Kenobi that was purchased from an antique store in Kentucky.

I plan to leave the C-3PO figure as is for sure but my original plan was to customize the Landspeeder What a Face

Maybe into a Pimp Mobil afro

For you guys, you can post your photos here (I'll then re-post them on my blog) or on the competition thread on the blog's FB page:

I know Christian is in NY at the moment, so I thought that I would bump his beater contest here on the forum.

I think this will be my official entry in his contest. rockon

I was waiting for a few beater figures I just bought to arrive but I don't think they're going to get here in time  banghead2

If it's not too late to enter the contest I'll make this Zombie Han my official entry :

Hey Clint, my wife will choose the winner this weekend and I'll let you guys know. Was surprised that only four people entered as the prize was pretty good and it was easy to enter. Plus I publicised the shit out of it. Anyway kudos to those who entered. Will announce the winners soon.

Thanks Clint and James for entering!

The wife has spoken! Runner-up is Clint, with his awesome pile of broken down R2D2s ("Clint's pile of robots" according to my wife).

And the winner is............... Todd Osborn with his yellow than yellow Stormie! She was impressed with how yellow this guy is. Me too, I mean they often yellow but this fella looked like a rotten Kraft cheese single on legs! Thanks to everyone who contributed photos. I'll be contacting the winners within the next couple of days.

My favourite was Zombie Han but you guys know a man's opinion is not important in a marriage Smile

I'll upload Todd's photo here soon.
