The only immediate difference I can see is that both your V3 & Wolffs has a sprue break on top of the rifle stock & the sprue break on the barral is set further back.

I'll have a look at mine later.

Edit: the differences circled on the guide are subtle, but they are there.

Has one got a mold circle in the same place but on the opposite side to V4?

V4 has the longest front part of the scope & a narrow handle/grip ( as well as the ejector pin/mold circle )

The sprue break off points are the only thing I see different between V2 & V3 unsure

Didn't see this picture :I am stupid:

I'm sure I have another variant or did have, with the mold circle in the opposite side to the V4, I'll have a look tomorrow and post up a pic if I still have it.

Original Kenner V1 Lando Skiff Guard helmet. Inside detail showing ejector pin mark.

Original Kenner V3 Lando Skiff Guard helmet. This one has a much larger ejector pin mark on the inside.

I've got several V1's, but his is the only V3 that I have seen/own.

Thnks for the new pics Steve Cool


Was wondering about the recent Taiwan Bib Fortuna belt we added. I received a Hong Kong Bib recently and he had the exact same belt with circle on inside and two notches and dark grey.

My pics:







Steve's pics:






Can anyone else confirm if they have this darker 2 notch belt with inside circle on either a Taiwan or Hong Kong Bib?

Great pics Paul (they're much sharper than the ones I took). I hope you'll add them the guide. Very Happy

Thanx Steve. I'll update them in next couple of days. Think I'll label them now V1, V2, V3 (drop the Taiwan?) and V4 (Ledy)

Any thoughts?

Under the circumstances it would be better to remove the Taiwan label, at least until we can be 100% sure V3 is exclusive to Taiwan figures.

Great work guys!!! cheers

Just a small comment regarding Bib's belt.

The Ledy belts (2 versions) use the same moulds as some of the Kenner belts. So no need to give them distinctive version numbers. Only the colour is different.





Same for Bib's staff: Both Kenner and Ledy share the V4 mould. The colour is different.

I was thinking when making future entries on the main site, could you please stick to version numbers which have already have been introduced in the Lili Ledy thread sofar?

For the sake of being consequent. Very Happy

Good question.

I don't think that Ledy used unique moulds for the ERG staffs.

So the V2 mould was also in use by Kenner. Just the dark grey and slightly darker grey V2 ones are Ledy.

I have to check my collection whether I have a Kenner V2 staff and make new comparison pics.

Good to know that all the Ledy ones are darker than the Kenner Cool

here are 3 repo Leia Blasters that I have . I am pretty syre at least 1 (maby 2) of these are not represented in the guide . The 2 blue ones both sink in water - The black one floats . They do all lack the circle on the magazine clip which is a pretty easy way to tell as usual but , I am pretty sure that there is at least some color and/or sculpt differences from the others that are in the TIG guide .

I hope these are helpful in one way or another - if any additional pictures are needed I will be glad to do my best to help Smile

James (Ourchickenshack), thanks for contributing. I've taken a look and compared yours to the existing Leia fake blasters on the main site....


1..... I think the light blue blaster in the middle of your pic looks the same as the "V1 cast in blue" on the main site.
Anybody else have the same thoughts abut this one ??


2....... The top black blaster on your pic has some interesting differences I think to the existing black Leia fakes we have. I've circled these on the pics below.
I would like to add this as a new REPRO version. Anyone else agree/thoughts??


3...... Would also like to add the bottom dark blue blaster on your pic, as this seems to be a new colour version of the existing V1 fake.

Thoughts everyone??




James, can you make some new photos please, showing the top black blaster left and right. Then the bottom dark blue left and right. If you can take them with a white background (A4 paper is fine) with good lighting that will be great thanks Cool Let me know if you would like a watermark of your username added.
