The reason the SM's are brittle is, they were made in Argentina by the Argentina Joe manufacter for Hasbro, this slightly down graded palstic.

I never knew that.

It's cool to find out new things about old stuff.

"SM's"?

Slaughter's Marauders

Python Patrol vehicles were made in Brazil also.

Are we talking about swivel-arm or straight-arm here?

Mine is a swivel-arm Stalker.

Are we talking about swivel-arm or straight-arm here? Straight-arms in general seem to have this problem, especially Zap.

I haven't had a problem with any of my figures so far, but some of these have been treated roughly in the past. Lots of "grip action" (for lack of a better term) could result in this, obviously. Quite a few of my figures from childhood probably would have ended up this way - I only had about three with broken thumbs though. Figures with sun damage seem quite a bit more brittle crumbly than others, I imagine those stored in very cold areas would be the same way.

I won a mint/complete Stalker on ebay a few years back, and like I always do, the moment I received him, I was putting his gun in his hand to display him, and the entire top half of his hand broke off. Ironically, the thumb was still intact.

I've had the same exact break happen to me about a year ago with a Stalker I won on Ebay. I was actually removing his gun when it happened. It's funny to be a vintage GI Joe collector. Not only do we pay for the actual figures, vehicles, and accessories, but also the cost of maintaining the toys when pieces break.

Also I have gone through 5 Maurader Spirits. Thumbs broke on all of them, both hands.

I think this was a very common problem with Maurader Spirit.

I got him for Christmas as a kid, and within a week, both of his thumbs had broke. That was when the plastic was still "new". This was the only figure I ever broke the thumbs on when I was younger.

Quite a few of the Maurader Spirits I see online and on ebay have broken thumbs as well.

Wonder if whatever caused the problems with Maurader Spirit are the same things that caused the problem with V1 Stalker?

My very first V1 Stalker's thumbs broke off. I think alot of that has to do with his gun. The handle looks a little bigger than alot of the other guys like Grunt and R&R. Stalker was one of my first ten figures and around the second or third to break. I've wondered if the problem with Stalker was that he had his hands painted. Did the paint soften the plastic?

I have replaced him since then but never dared to put a gun in his hand and it is still ok.

I am one of the ones that has problems with Trip-Wire. I have had three crotches break. Two regulars and one Tiger Force.

Also I have gone through 5 Maurader Spirits. Thumbs broke on all of them, both hands.

Three figures have broke at the shoulder. v1 Cobra Commander, v1 Zap and a v1 Cobra Officer. These all broke within 3 years of getting them when I played with them alot. I have never been able to find out what made the shoulders break other than over playing with them.

I have never had a thigh break.

These days I try to not even touch my old figures.

I'd purchased a v1 Stalker through the mail, and both his thighs were shattered when I opened the package (I'm sure most likely due to the post office).
