As I mentioned back in Show 263 and in other previous shows, The large FactoryX pewter Black Omega starfury model could very well be classified as a dangerous weapon, or at the least a falling hazard for small pets (remember when the Mythbusters dropped frozen turkeys on models of cats and toy dogs? That’s the kind of probable damage I’m talking about).
As promised, here are some photos of both the starfury and station models, with comparison shots between the normal stand for the station, and the now-mangled stand for the starfury, complete with the gouge in the base, and snapped off starboard side gun.
update: here are some closer shots of how badly the stand was mangled under the weight of the starfury
The starfury stand wasn’t really twisted like I’d always thought, just nearly snapped in two. I couldn’t pull the damaged stand off the base without completely severing it, and it looks like veneer and paint are the only things holding that thing together anymore.
