I may have a rare minifig, but I'm not sure

edited October 2011 in Collecting
When I was a kid, I had some lego PJs that came with a blacktron minifig on them. It could never wear a jetpack (or oxygen tank) because it has a popper affixed to its back, to attach it to the pyjamas.

I've no idea, but I'm guessing it's probably quite rare?

    Blacktron pajamas?

    Abruptly, my childhood feels so incomplete.

    Doh!
    I think I may have had this figure..I thought the plastic pop had been stuck on by my brother!

    Ok, I'll try and dig it out tonight (I've been trying to sort through my lego)

    Here's two photos of the guy. A bit blurry. Also, his visor is fixed at a certain position, and can't be moved. I think the seperate pieces are glued together, and his visor is a little chipped.

    I have a similar thing it was in a lot of lego i got from EBay. It has what looks like a "popper" on it's back. I thought someone had glued it there. Will try and dig it out. Don't think the figure could be taken appart though.

    lol, well it looks as though he isn't that rare!

    I think he's pretty rare, so far only one person had him and no one knows what he is. I assumed one of the mods with the huge collections would have posted by know telling us what it is. I wanna look it up on bricklink but not even sure how

    I assumed one of the mods with the huge collections.....
    We don't all have huge collections (more's the pity), and mods aren't appointed on size of collection :o)

    This sounds like a 'fig I had seen mention of elsewhere, Eurobricks perhaps, there was in the past a Bricklink seller that had hundreds (or more) of these for sale at one point. I seem to recall nobody could figure out WHY it had the connector glued onto it, you're story about it coming with PJ's makes a lot of sense in that regard.

    I bet mods have larger collections than non-mods. Not that all mods do, but that the probability you have a large collection increases if you are known to be a mod.
  • BeardedCastleGuyBeardedCastleGuy Member Posts: 127
    I'd believe the Mod that says that's not necessarily the case, I expect that what they look for in being a mod is the ability to communicate well, be friendly and available and have interest in the subject, not the pile of plastic pieces that a person has acquired.

    Yea well I meant a Mod who ALSO has a large collection, because I figured a Mod would be a much dedicated fan (not necessarily!) and thus would know more, and one whom ALSO has a large collection would even know more so the chances of a Mod with a large collection knowing what it was is better than an average user like me :)
