      Figues Durability Test 2019

      For the new year I decided to find out just how well figures will hold up in a hostile climate. Or possibly I just like to torture figures....

      Since New Mexico has some of the highest background radiation and UV levels in the country I would say that most of you should get as good or better results than this from your people. If not I highly recommend torturing them until performance and moral improve..

       

      I have attached factory painted figures from 8 different manufacturers to a 2X4. Beginning New Years day they were placed outside in the yard where they are exposed to the elements, UV and public ridicule without any protection. They will remain there for the next year...maybe longer. Each month on or about the first I will take a picture and post it to this thread so everyone can see how they are holding up.

       

       

      From left to right the brands are: Mojo (molded vinyl), Railroad Avenue (resin), Just Plain Folks (resin), Woodland Scenics (resin), Fun & Games(resin), Prieser (resin) Cheaple (resin) and Scleich (molded vinyl).

       

      This is science so you all need to take it serious. The lives of your figures just might depend on it.

      Does torture include waterboarding, scalping, electricity, or skin removal ?  If yes will you video the proceedings ?

      Thank you
