Bazooka Numbers

Postby Hopper » 12 Apr 2015 17:48

This has been mentioned before, I know. Can't seem to find the thread (pre crash, perhaps?)

Going through my stuff recently, and re-noticed the numbers that appear on the small handle on the Bazookas.
I have 1, 3, & 4. Presumably there is a 2.
Anyone have a higher number?
What is the significance? Perhaps where they are on the sprue or similar... but none of the other weapons, etc. have numbers.
Thoughts anyone?

Here are my three.

I like this. Id go with your comment and presume it would be the number of the piece on the sprue / mould.

Perhaps it's like that practical joke - take three pigs, paint each pig with either a number 1, 3 or 4 on their sides. Then let them loose in your chosen target area - school or hospital, for example. Retire to safe distance, and laugh as the people spend the rest of the week looking for pig number 2

Excellent, thanks guys.
So 1-4 confirmed. Any more for any more?
I'll buy a beer for the person who finds me a Number 5

And does anyone have a spare number 2 they want to part with (*sniggers). I'll swap you a number one (*titters away to himself).

Certain star wars items are numbered aswell, such as lightsabres.

I was told a mould would hold a certain amount of the same item e.g. 4. They are all numbered so if theres an issue with the cast you can tell which item from that mould is the culprit...and presumably not use or repair that area of the mould.

The soft plastic bazookas have no numbers btw.
