No mention what happened to them, but if I had to guess on the Waldorf Q, the Nextel paint got sticky and someone attempted the talcum powder fix. Apparently you can coat stick plastics with talcum power and then give them a light wipe to clean any excess off. The silo knobs likely broke apart, which actually happened to me on my XTk as you can see here.

That said it looks like a job gone horribly wrong. I was going to say the A6 and Fizmo faired better, but check out the cigarette stains on the keys, dirt on the surface, and missing knobs. They look like they've been stored in an outdoor shed. The listings state they are estate sales. There are other synths listed including an EMU PK-6 Proteus keyboard, XK-6 Extreme Keys, Proteus 2000 rack synth, and two Yamaha EX5s. On the non synth front there's a Porsche steering wheel for anyone interested! Click on "See other items" to right of the seller's name after click any of the three auction links above.
