I had a Bad Feeling that it was something to do with the injection moulding process- or short pour. But as I was saying I would Love to see some actual footage of Star Wars Figures being Manufactured and in Particular the Sonic Welding? I’ve watched on the Tube and it is quite intriguing! It would be great to see what sort of jig that they used to keep the three, four and five points of articulation in place FX- 7 Medical Droid notwithstanding? I would love to see how Palitoy and Kenner assembled Him. I’ve seen a bit of footage with Figures being sealed to their card backs. Seeing the size of those iron plates you have to wonder how the actual Figure was not turned to goo!? Ha! Obviously they had thermostat settings to prevent this and a limited time or they would probably burn the card, bubble and Figure and All! I wonder what the turn over rate was in terms of how many Figures that had to be sonically welded together? How many Figures Per Minute!? It must have been fun though? 06:00 shift the line would begin with a 1000 Han Solo’s 13:00 you swap out for a 1000 Luke in Bespin’s and by shut down you top things off with a 1000 Imperial Tie Pilots!? I would Have Loved Turning Up to that Job! Staff Discount! Legal Discount- not the Five Fingered Variety! Just think- you would be surrounded by the Smell of Vintage Star Wars Figures Multiplied by God Knows? Mmm Vintage! The New Star Wars Figures of the 90’s And now the 2020’s Do Not Smell the Same! Modern Plastics! It’s pure nostalgia when you smell your Vintage Figures and the Vinyl Capes in Particular! I know I get that Tranquil Fuzzy Feeling! Some times I will take one Figure out of the Collection to inspect or just admire and before I know it an Hour has Gone! That’s why when I do a thorough check it takes the morning to bring everything out and the afternoon to put it back again! I used to know a guy whose Collection was so Vast you could not walk through His Living or Dining Rooms! He had some really obscure stuff that I never even knew existed and then He would hand me a Gem that I had half forgotten about! I cannot imagine how much his carded stuff would be worth now?! 12 Backs All Palitoy! Boba Fett on an Empire Card! All the Power of the Force Carded Figures! Yeah it was Crazy what this Guy Had! Carded, Loose you name it he most likely had it! Back then when I was a college student his Collection was worth a great deal- now it must be worth a blinding Fortune!
