Snake Eyes V1...broken right thumb
Stalker V1..broken right thumb
Scarlett V1...broken left arm above the elbow or at the elbow
Zap V1...a bazooka disaster broken thumb
I never had a broken crotch piece. I have had some broken feet on my vintage figs from the foot pegs snapping the heel off. Firefly V 1 and airborne V1 come to mind.
I've fixed all those figs with borrowed body parts except the foot problems, I may go to the place that sells body parts for those.

Version 2 snake eyes - broken thumb and crotch in a period of about 10 minutes. Thumb was week and in a sword battle with SS, it snapped off. A few minutes of grief and it was time to for SE to repel down the stairs in our split level foyer. I guess with the broken thumb he just wasn't able to hang on long enough to make a safe landing and he fell to his broken crotch death.
Still have him...
OH shit!!!! Edit to talk about Hooded CC -
I broke his head off and the rubber band snapped. At the time (5 years old) I didn't k ow how to fix him so my mom used a hot glue gun and glued him back together. There was this all this glue in his crotch so he couldn't sit, hishead didn't turn left or right, and no rubber band he had no movement. Still have him as well...when I got older I attempted to replace the rubber band, but it still looks like his crotch is covered in goo.

I remember my 1982 hawk's right hand coming clean off right out of the package (so if anybody out there has a hawk with a missing hand....he's mine ) Some of my straight armed figures broke fairly easy (Zap, Stalker, Grunt) but for the most part I was careful with them.

The best painful death of my Joes was when I (very stupid of me now as I look back at it) Lined up all of mine and my friend's joes on the drive way and took to em with a 1 wood golf club. Man do those suckers explode and fly all over the place! I am sure there are still pieces of them all around my old neighbor hood to this day unless the lawnmowers finished them off!

I've broken both of Steeler's and Stalker's thumbs (both straight arm), don't believe that its happened to anyone else, or that I've had any crotches break.
Still, horribly upset that I did something so stupid (i should have realized that plastic would snap under pressure).

When I was a kid I had about 20 argentian Joes and 30 american joes. Most of the argentinian ones had broken thumbs because of the bad quality plastic but that never happened to me with american Joes.
I also broke 2 crotches and both were Argen 7 figures (Cobra Invasor and Tospon).

I think the first one for me was Scoop. He got dissected!
The one I remember the most was my 85 Snake Eyes. I got him with one broke already, but then the last one broke I was a sad child :(

I killed my Firefly by putting his walkie talkie in his left hand. Broke the thumb. I think that I have since picked up another one with a broken right thumb. So now I have 2 Fireflys. One perfect, the other with 2 broken thumbs. And I think it has a broken crotch too, but I didn't care as I only wanted the left hand.
