You never seem to see uncracked Death Star droids for sale though. I wonder if the process of the silver was different to c3pos gold.
To me, the only figure that can have uncracked limbs is c3po, which is a byproduct of assembly.

These are commonly found on several foreign variants, for example...
PBP Bossk, PBP dark brown rebel soldier etc...
I also have and I'm not taking the piss a PBP tri-logo fett which has super stiff limbs that I daren't move.
The reason for the frozen limbs? It would have to be something to do with the different materials used and the expansion/shrinkage in the mating parts over time.
