Fantastic figure. Love the Tri-logo MOC there, damn, that brings back memories of seeing them on rails in the shops as a kid.
I was just looking in the massive Lili Ledy thread after being linked to it by a member on RS, and there's some amazing pics of the Biker Scout variations and cardbacks in it, very helpful and useful. Would love to get hold of a loose one (Mexican), but no idea how much they cost.

They dont cost too bad. You can find them here in the classys or on Ebay. But you do have to watch out for the blaster to make sure its the right one.

I've been monitoring prices for this figure for a few months. Based upon eBay & quotes from some dealers an excellent ungraded example with a Kenner blaster will be around £20.00. One with a Ledy blaster will be £30 - £40.00 & a nice MOC £40 - £60.00.

However, I have seen them cheaper than this on the boards.

They are quite common, so with patience you should be ale to get one for less than the guidline prices quoted above. I would certainly try to avoid paying more. Like many figures, prices can fluctuate by quite a large margin within a short period of time. Very Happy

A nice example MOC with the right Ledy blaster will run $125-150. Thats the last sales Ive seen on them. the 40-60 range will be with the regular Kenner blaster.

COO#4
Normal instead of skinny legs
Detailed torso (hard torso)







Is the hard torso common for this variant?

Is that also COO#4?

In that case COO#4 comes with a soft and hard torso? scratch

I struggle sometimes to see the EPM to distinguish the 'Taiwan' blaster. There are other mould differences but the main one I have found is the Taiwan blaster does NOT have a mould sprue break point at the back of the blaster. This sprue limb point is clear to see on the 'MIHK' blasters.
