I'm quite positive that the McFarlane toys have a built in self destruction mechanism and break after a certain time, whether or not you're careful with them. How do I know? I gave my 5 year old cousin a Viking Spawn for his birthday, thought it looked cool and took advantage of the sale and bought myself one too. Now, I don't remember the exact time, but I think it was about a month later, give or take a week or two, that I broke mine. I was cleaning up my room, nabbed it by the arm and a piece of it's arm came off, sending the poor bugger falling to the floor and damaging it pretty much permanently. Later that day, I got a call from my aunt, asking how I was doing and when I was going to return the Windows CD. During our conversation, she mentioned that my cousin had just broken the toy I had given him. It's arm came off during one of his little 'experiments'. He's the kind of kid that likes to catapult all of his toys across the yard and use them as hammers.
Let's go over it one more time, just to make sure you got it;
1 figure was used as a tool and a projectile weapon.
1 figure was standing in a shelf, collecting dust.
Both broke ON THE EXACT SAME DAY.

Bite me, McFarlane.

I agree. To hell with McFarlane toys.

But they get the rights to the stuff, so we, the consumers and collectors, are screwed becuase the sculpters at McFarlane Toys have a hard-on for "sculpts"... when they arn't re-using certain sculps.

I would have liked to get their new military figures, but, you know, miniature sculptures n shit.

seems like the newer mcfarlane toys are more brittle than the old ones.

I have 17, and 5 have broken. I've only broken brittle things, like weapons or decorations, never had an arm or head fall off. The older ones are more pose-able and seem less delicate. The newer ones I have are harder to make stand up, and feel more brittle when you try to turn their arms or whatever. Mcfarlane figures are awesome though. I have them on my dresser Razz

Yeah, I paid 30 for it, but hey, I had my German oral thingy just before I bought it and I got a 9. Which is fairly high if you consider a 10 is the highest. Oh, I btw had my representation about AvP and the Alien and Predator movies. I spend like 30 minutes about it, talking with my German teacher (she's like 25 or something) about all that stuff. I got an extra high mark caus I did it all without any notes or something.

You know I have the Japanese animation set from McFarlane and to be perfectly honist It They seem to hold up pretty good. Noiw I'll adimit that these are 5-6 years old, so maybe McFarlane has started using some cheaper quality stuff. If he has... Curse him. Evil or Very Mad

i just saw the new AVP playsets - they are crap! Celtic's hands are attatched to grids legs, scarhas only that one pose - its annoying as hell. They make "playsets" which are mini dioramas.
