I wonder if my Hot Toys ANH Darth Vader will have the same issue?It's funny how some electronics work. Some of them don't last very long while others seem to last a lifetime. When my son was 4 years old (we are talking 2004), I got him a Mr. Potato Head electronic game, never replaced the batteries. For years now, that game has been in my garage inside a tote bin. To this day, every time I go look for stuff in that tote bin or bump it with a box, Mr. Potato head goes wild: "Hi, I'm Mr. Potato Head. Let's play a game. Touch my nose" I swear I think the toy is possessed! It keeps going on and on until it finally says he's going to sleep. Crazy!
