    No, seriously, it was made of wood with a center table and cushions on the side. The bottom side of the insert where the cushions sat had this weird felty/frizzy material to it. And somehow the gaffi stick got snagged up in it.

    In elementary school, I brought my Walrusman to school and lost him near the sandbox, so somebody probably found him there.

    My next door neighbor lost my Luke X-Wing Pilot, so his mom bought me a replacement (would that happen these days?). About a year later we dug him up from his sandbox (what is it with these things? ).

    When working at a hotel, I found a POTF2 Boba Fett rifle on the floor. I kept it all for myself.

    Last year I found a MOTU Ram-man underneath the storage shed of the property we bought a couple of years ago. There was also most of a battle-damaged Skeletor, but he was missing a limb or two, as I recall.

    Cool stories. Keep 'em coming.

    I found a green-limbed leg for what i think was a Silverhawks figure about a month ago in my front hard under a bush.

    I also got a vintage yoda with coat & belt (nice figure) for 50 cents at a flea market a few years ago.

    Ok, but this clip is clean!

    Now my post doesn't make sense (and yes, some'll say there's nothing new about that sad little circumstance).

    I think it's best to consider the odd places where toys have been found rather than "misplaced" posts that have been removed.

    Not really an "odd" place, but I bought a loose Ree-Yees with a black rifle, before I knew about repros and before I found out that the Droids Uncle Gundy figure had the same mold in a different color.

    For a dollar, I bought a person's sheet that he was using to display items at a garage sale... because it was the old SW pattern.

    Stillakid's post was about finding SW figures where a certain Mr. Gere may or may not have found a small rodent....
