Whilst rooting through my lego box, I have found something very peculiar... Not one, but TWO Red Futuron minifigs with what appear to be molding errors on their backs. These must have gone unnoticed for many years, but it means they won't be able to survive long in space without oxygen packs. Anyway, they dont fit studs and I have no Idea how they appeared. Can any of you guys shed some light on this mystery?

Are you sure it wasn't the attack of the space disks which planted themselves into the figures?
I've never seen anything like this before...

Is it just me or those... growths on the back of the minifigs look an awfull lot like those plastic buttons used in pajamas?

From what I understand, these figures were part of badges or something of that sort that were released some times ago. I'm not one hundred percent sure about what exactly they were for but the "error" is intentional. I seem to recall something similar with some Blacktron figures that were attached to badges before.

I beleive they are intentional, and they should fit onto a stud if im not mistaken
Have you seen him? Probably not, he's a NINJA.

Weird. However, it does seem like one of those badge things as mentioned above.
