What's the condition of your EE Limited Edition Figurines? Can't Post

These...




*Images removed - too large!*


I've had these since the sets originally came out and they have (mostly) survived the years and three moves. I even still have the boxes. The TTT Gollum is in perfect condition being a largely solid block with no breakable parts. The same sadly cannot be said for the Argonath or Minas Tirith.

The latter has one tower partially broken off and another came of completely and had to be glued back on. Thankfully the White Tower hasn't come off as yet. Unsure

However its the Argonath who have fared the worst, as much as I cherish them they are easily broken, both have damaged crowns but worst of all is those damn hands pointing outwards. Both have broken off multiple times (one hand was even lost for a whole five years) and have been glued back on repeatedly. Isildur's hand is even broken in two places now, no idea how it happened but I've glued it back to the best of my abilities but it is very noticeable.

They also have a bit of general dust n dirt accumulated over the years (its very hard to clean Minas Tirith with all its delicate pointy bits) but overall they keep pride of place above my PC.

So who else has these or similar LOTR items and how have they fared over the years?
