Would be cool to find out where they came from.

hehe, love the Snowtrooper with Han arms Razz


those minirig decals are a mystery I agree. It almost looks like the word 'ter' has been cut from a decal that said 'monster' or 'terrain' ?? Mybe from a playset construction set or moon base or smething ??



anyway, here's Ackbar with new smoking jacket, shhh don't tel Han !!

Lol at the hoth trooper with Han Arms.
Actually it looks still quite OK, he just took of his gloves... Razz

If you have a hoth trooper focus, you should buy it for the fun of it.

Hi Marco,

If you sign up for the site where you've got that picture from, you can ask the seller what he might think.

OK, I knew Lando could sing, but I had no clue he could wail on guitar too!
Wonder if the accessory is a Strat or some chiseled BC rich or something. Smile

I've often thought Weequay would have made a good guitarist. Hammerhead could be posed to play a mean bass too.

That ledy Han belonged to a TIG member. I believe he sold the gun through the classifieds and just had the figure left or something. I dont know why he did not initially take a new photo, but I think he eventually replaced the photo. He is a good guy though.

I thought it's supposed to be brownish or beige?

I think it's down to discolouration, his nose is off colour along with the bespin luke.

I posted some info regarding max rebo variants a while back and luckily I found it easily...

Haha I thought it was funny to just erase the gun :Pand that the above picture looked exactly like it but with the gun. Seemed like a recycled picture for two different hans. But I was in the completed listings section so it was the same just relisted I guess Smile

Btw that luke farmboy is a real bargain! Very Happy
