Starting from the top left there's
#3 HK 3 line
#6 HK 3 line
#8 China
#7 China, maybe both china are found on ROTJ cards?
#5 No coo, found on Palitoy Tri-Logos and some times with a Bespin saber.
#1 Dark brown hair, Kenner US Cards
#1 blond hair
#1 blond hair(maybe the same as last)
#2 blond hair(not positive on the COO)

Two single telescoping LFB,

LEFT: 3 line. Hong Kong. #3.

RIGHT: 1 line. Looks like #5. There is a 2nd line with smoothed remnants of 'Hong Kong' just visible under light and magnification.

12 Back A






The loose figures are numbered the same as they appear in Wolff's guide.

#1 - Hong Kong COO (all of these share the same COO yet have differences in hair color, pants & face)










#2 - Hong Kong COO













#3 - Hong Kong (3 Line)







#4 - Taiwan COO







#5 - No COO







#6 - Hong Kong (3 Line)







#7 - Made In China







#8 - Made In China







#9 - Glasslite







#10 - Meccano - (Purchased off eBay, not in hand...yet!)







#11 - Meccano/French Trilogo(?) - (Purchased off eBay, not in hand...yet!)









#12 - Hong Kong (Very similar to COO #2 but different)

















If anything is off in my descriptions, PLMK! I am not here to argue, only to learn Very Happy

Group Shot



Thanks!
Pat

First question. All of the China Lukes that I own/ have owned & those currently posted here have blonde hair. Does anyone know of, or own a brown hair version? Or do all China Lukes have blonde hair?

I'll look tonight and post which one it is AJ. I have no idea off the top of my head.

And I know we aren't supposed to comment with "WOW or COOL!" but that TolToys 12back cardback is very cool! I don't think I've ever seen one for a Farmboy Luke. Is there a confirmed MOC one? TolToys ROTJ's are getting incredibly rare and expensive, I can't imagine a MOC 12back!

Man that's a lot of Luke-ness!!!

My adds:

1) DT Luke in EB Kit



2) Brazil Glasslite MOC



3) Polish Unart (He's really to short to be a stormtrooper at barely 3 inches)

So... I've always wondered... what's the main difference between a Glasslite farmboy and a "regular" farmboy?

All I've ever seen is photos of Glasslite's and I'm not really sure I would know one from Adam if I just stumbled across it.

EDIT: as an additional thought... can we label what each COO difference is? Like if the 3 Line COO is specific to the DT's etc. Instead of just 1, 2, 3, etc. I think it might be helpful for the casual observers/questions.

Here are three of my no coo Lukes Smile

And their coo’s, left to right:

The first is the same as RetroRewindToys’ figure that he’s labelled as coo #5, however it’s coo is not yet shown on Wolff’s guide (although he’s well aware of it’s existence Smile ) – it comes from the same mould as Retro’s figure #12 but with the HK removed. The second figure pictured has coo #5. These two figures as Scott has said can be found on some Palitoy and Trilogo cards. Years ago it was thought they could be separated into a Pal & Tri variant but it’s now believed these are simply the same variant with legs from different moulds / mould cavities.
The third has no coo markings, but slight marks can be seen where the coo should be (so not a prototype Wink ). It is currently thought to be a figure that came from a well used mould (where the coo in the mould got all gunked up). I haven’t seen another Luke like it but have heard rumour of maybe a couple more out there? Anybody got a similar Luke / know it’s origin?

@ Retro, your blank bar “Meccano / French Trilogo” Lukes are cool – do you have any specific info on which cardbacks they turn up on? Cheers!
Anybody want to speculate (if we’re allowed Wink ) where they were made? I think it’s interesting that the blank bar Luke mould was so widely travelled. Lukes found in Europe (mainly France), Brazil - the Glasslite figure & also Mexico too??!!
Any Ledy experts or long-timers from RS know any more about Pedro’s uncovering of blank bar Lukes amongst Ledy overstock back in the 90’s? Was a Lili Ledy Luke planned?


While we’re talking about moulded Luke legs, has anyone in Spain spotted a moulded leg Luke? There was a mythical Luke Caminacielos molded leg figure rumoured to exist, coming from very early cards – no figure has ever surfaced (beware any appearing on eBay now I’ve typed this Wink )
As for Spanish Lukes, here’s a link to the Poch ESB 41 back Luke from the Archive – normal painted legs (but slightly darker paint) & here’s a pic of a “PBP” dark haired Luke that was for sale a year or two ago (I thought I had a pic of the cardback it came with??). Has anyone saved that pic / have a shot of one carded? & a quick shot of the coo of my 'Spanish' Luke thought to have come from a later PBP card (alongside a pretty much identical ‘normal’ HK figure).

Rog. Smile

Excellent idea. I think that would help more in the long run if we did do that. Not onl;y would it help the members now, but future members also.

Heres my two now I got a minute to take a pix.

Polish Unarts.

I've got several blonde hair Lukes and 1 brown hair. Not sure of the COO's and they're packed away and I'm too lazy to dig them out right now. I never really paid much attention to COO's before but this is a cool thread that has sparked my interest in figures that I have multiples of.

My question is what makes a true orange hair Luke (not discoloring). What should someone look for when trying to find one?

Here's my favorite Luke FB in my collection - Polish unart with green saber:

Just checked my DT 3 line COO. It's version 3 on Wolff's guide. Is that anything special?
