Casualty figures, but not as we know them.
Some figures unable to be restored.
Half a dozen figures from a very old collection (several decades) probably about 1000 figures strong which will have to be binned.
I can't blame the boxing system as the vast majority of the figures are OK.
I can't blame the environment in which the boxes have been kept while in my possession (several years) as I have extensive collections from several decades old to brand new, painted and unpainted, soft plastic, hard plastic, resin, lead and pewter.
I don't recall them showing signs of this when I first took care of them so they must be a recent development. Maybe that is how lead rot works.
Any ideas chaps?
