40th Hands Melting Vintage Plastic!

Postby Red Baron » 12 Nov 2015 00:34

Hi all . . . sorry it's been a while!

It's also been quite a while since I looked at my Vintage Action Men (stuff cluttering up the display cabinets meant I couldn't get inside). Tonight, having moved everything to a new room, I've been looking over the VAM that I had displayed. I was quite horrified to find that some of the replacement 40th hands had melted a number of vintage weapons beyond repair!

Has anyone else come across this problem and are there any known causes so I can avoid the same thing happening again . . . heads to eBay to replace the damaged weapons!

It hasn't happened to me, but it is a common issue. It seems to affect earlier hands more than later ones. You might find the currently available ones will be OK. Have a look at Cotswold's for replacements, I'd bet they would be OK.
that would be an ecumenical matter
