PostSubject: Your Favorite Junker Gallery   Wed Jun 07, 2017 5:09 pm

Hello,

The purpose of this thread is to create a gallery that contains photos of "your favorite junker".

I am not sure how many others feel this way, but I have certain Kenner SW figures that would be considered complete and utter garbage by a certain segment of the collecting community. However, I could never bring myself to parting with them for whatever reason... Could be a sentimental reason, or maybe the way it was worn and damaged make it perfect for a certain display, or diorama...

In any case, if you have something you love that others might consider garbage, then you have come to the right place... I will start off with some damaged droids that I have gotten very attached to over the years... I hope I am not alone on this topic... Enjoy

Those are kind of bad. Ha. I have a few bad ones but I think I'll get rid of mine. Especially since I just got them.

Broke,

Don't do it, lol! I would keep them man... I have a tremendous appreciation for beater figures, especially the ones with cool scars... Maybe keep them around for a bit and see if they grow on you, lol!


Bryan,

Glad to hear it! Looking forward to your pics... I have some more stuff to add too...

The first step to recovery is admitting it.

Cool man, that's a great figure to collect variants of... Especially with that chrome, lots of cool variations and wear from one figure to the next...

Cool topic I love the rough shape of your droids Smile. I have many that are beat up and will be used for customs some day. But two I do have that I really enjoy just having are R2 and 3P0. Both I had for some time R2 was one of the first I got when I started collecting again he was in a CA's with a bunch of other figs. I never wanted to get rid of him as I have a custom one planned for him. And of course his wear and all that shows me he was a well loved little droid.

3P0 on the other hand is one of the very few I still have from my childhood. Aside from him being my first figure I got for Christmas he is also my first custom figure I did back in 1978. He is loose and worn but he is very special.

So here are my worse for wear dudes



And kick ass 3P0




Aside from these two the only other worn ones I have are custom one from my friends.

Larry, great photos man!

I really enjoyed the photos of your Droid Factory R2-D2, but that C-3PO stole the show for me man!

I love the wear that he has, but the custom pieces you added are awesome, he totally looks like he just walked out of 1970's Sci-Fi! He looks like he was arming himself to go up against Boba Fett with that gear!

Again, great photos man... Thanks so much for sharing them, that C-3PO took the cake, lol!!

Taking very quick pics today so here are some of mine. All the ones in these pics are ledy. Two are stripped figures and one you can see has a permanent glued leg. The 12" r2 is probabaly my favorite beater of the bunch. I have a lot of stripped figures that were shot in various plastic colors. I will have to dig them out sometime.

Bryan, these are awesome man!!

I really love the 12" R2-D2, I have never seen one like that before!

Also, I really love all the C-3PO's and all the different colors you have them in...

Speaking of color I couldn't help but notice the really saturated colors on some of those Jedi figures on the bottom shelf. Specifically the flesh tone on Endor Han, and also the skin color of the Rancor Keeper, and the Max Rebo... They are all so awesome!

Has anyone ever done a LL photo gallery where people just toss photos of their LL figures? That would be great to see, I love all the differences found in the LL figures!! Thanks for sharing man!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Not really a thread devoted to this, but there are ledy limelights on various sights. As you can see my photo skills are very lacking and am down to just my phone camera as I misplaced my other one again. Lili ledy and the Mexican s.a. bootleg line is some of my favorite stuff ever. I really need a larger case for my stuff, as you can see batman and link made their way into the photo. I have a hodgepodge of mess in my case as it is now.

Bryan, let know if you are interested in doing one in the not too distant future... I am pretty sure I have at least a handful of LL figs, just need to positively identify them before putting them in a LL thread.

Thundershot, that's a beautfiul farm boy Luke, and I love the story behind him. You made my day with your photo man Smile

I don't have any of my childhood figures but here is a beater X-Wing I've had for almost ten years now. It's an absolute wreck but still has working wing mechanism. I've had some real beauties when it comes to the X Wing but this one I love too.  

Here it is with a battered Luke pilot and R2.

Those smashup zombie figures are neat Paul. gave them a second life.  I could totally see a kid doing that to revive accidently broken figures.

Childhood figure and childhood cardback. Nice. I am afraid when I opened a toy the packaging never survived. I was rather quick about tearing into my stuff asap. lol!
