The Slow Decay Of Classic Star Wars Figures

Those in need of a timewaster for the rest of the day need look no further than Merchandising Is Forever, a blog that does nothing but post pictures — and GIFs — of the "minute variations in deterioration over time" on old Star Wars figures. I just... can't stop staring.

And remembering how, yeah, the paper sticker on the front of the old R2-D2 was almost impossible to keep clean/dry/safe under playground conditions.

    Not the same figures deteriorating though in each frame of the gif. Very obvious with Leia.

      The actual tumblr blog states how many different figures there are in each gif, even if this article makes no mention of it.
