I went to see them today, and alas what they'd found was mostly broken bits of flower pots and garden tools, and the severed leg from a Batman figure, but hidden amongst the debris were these two beauties!
One right landing gear from an ISP-6 Minirig and the visor from an Action Force Muton figure, rather scuffed up but in surprisingly good condition for 30+ years outdoors! Not the most exciting pieces in the world I know, but something incredibly satisfying about putting childhood originals back into my collection, however battered and bent out of shape they are! My parents got to have a good laugh at my excitement over random plastic too!
I know there is more stuff hidden out there, so I suspect my parent's garden will soon look like the dig site in Raiders Of The Lost Ark!
Good hunting all!
