    Has this been mentioned before? – genuine variant or 2 piece version with arm glued/soldered on and described as one piece :D Both have been stripped down to bare metal.

    So this is question for experts…. !?!?! …..Is this really two piece casting or it is only M124 with one cut off and re-glued hand.

    I have three copies of this figure, the first was painted many years ago and I cannot remember if it was one or two pieces, the second I won on ebay and came loose, but was one piece I think, the 3rd I ordered recently from Mithril as a double pack – Strider and Boromir and it has a separate arm :/

    After many years I have had this figure I cannot remember any more if my figure was from one or two pieces :(

    My edition of the m124 is a two-piece-figure.
    Maybe the difference has something to do with the box-edition . . .

    The first M124-figures definitely consist of two parts (swordarm separate). Mine was released 1990. I once bought it, when it was released, as a single figure. Left of the copyright sign there’s a number below the base. The figure I refer to wasn’t one of the Boxed Set, but logically the mould will have been used in the castings for the set. – That’s what I know of.

    I found a picture showing [mith]M124[/mith] in one piece, in blister:

    if I remember well, the [mith]MB237[/mith] was the same as M124, one piece only…

    many recast, for Mithril Classic range, had variations…. I think it comes from the MCD blisters. MCD7 had both Aragorn and Boromir in same blister, and the long arm of the m124 would not fit into the blister so they cast it in two parts for the packaging purpose… well that’s my theory.
