This is long overdue! The last time I did one of these I had 12 backs, AFA figures, baggies, mailers, bootlegs, etc
Well, all the stuff has been sold/traded so I could focus solely on loose figures (COO variants, paint variants, etc). I hope you enjoy the pictures & thanks for looking!
Pat

Hey James! Thank you for the compliments Very Happy I am down to missing 29 figures to finish Wolff's guide. Some of them are pretty easy (ie Blue Snag, Yak Face), & then some that just never seem to pop up (CCP #4, DSC #6). I'm also down to about 50 weapons to have them all complete, the 2 weapon figures (CCP & Bespin Luke) make up the majority of my missing weapons.



Thanks Clint! The displays cases are from Ikea, I cannot recommend them enough.

Thanks for the kind words John & Marco! The Luke Bespin that's "in the corner" (Lol!) is the one with the eyes on the back of the head! It's like my favorite figure ever lol!

SWEET CHEESES! that is one hot looking display Retro, well done.

Regarding the Boba Fetts...You have 10 displayed. Are these the variants of TAIWAN / HONG KONG / LILY LEDY only? Do you have the Tri-boba's displayed?

Which 10 Boba's are you classing as the variants?

good luck hunting down the rest of your collection. Ironically You'll be sad when its finished lol

OMG !!!, Although i'm a varaint collector so far I have stayed away for collecting different COO's but I know one day it will happen. :scratch:

My focus is to have a complete set of Kenner/Ledy/Glasslite, and other major paint/mould variants.

Example...

Han Solo (Small Head)
Han Solo (Large Head)
Han Solo (Glasslite)
Han Solo (White Moulded Legs)
Han Solo (POCH) <-- Still looking for this one

Well done :Drool:

Thanks for the compliments guys! If I was a superhero my super power would be O.C.D. lol!
To better clarify my labeling system, it's basically Wolff's COO guide - everything is labeled using that with the exception of Bespin Luke. For Luke I am using Alex's (Gen. Khan) Luke guide. I also collect paint variants, so if 2 figures have the same COO but different colored paint apps, then it's fair game! When I first started this about 4 years ago, condition was everything, today not so much. Some of these variants never seem to pop up & if I can snag it I will regardless of condition. A perfect example of this is the one beat to hell R2-D2 Sensorscope (COO #5) in there.


@ Oscar - The Vaders I have are: #1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5, 7- 9, 12-14, 16, 19-23. I have found a few not in the COO guide. Of those, 12 have lettered hilts (no new one's to add to your list) & I have been keeping an eye out for a extra "A" for ya!


@ plantainman - The Fetts are #1-7 & then I have 4 versions of COO #2 - all with very slight paint differences either in the face, armor or belt. The 2nd Fett (pictured below) with the really dark face & belt came from France, I doubt it means anything but it's noted on his stand.

Thanks Walkie! I think you forgot to add Top Toys to your list of complete sets (unless you already finished!)

Thanks again for the compliments guys! If you have any questions LMK & I will gladly answer them to the best of my ability!

Wow Pat....that looks awesome!!!

I cannot understand how coo collectors can even display their stuff! I needed to grab a few of those every day over years for comparison.....so congrats....your figures seem to have at least some time for their own..LOL

Great collection! When you are finished I will publish the new coo guide....so that you can go on... Wink

Cheers

Pat, my good friend, just AWESOME! I am so impressed with your collection and display!!!!! I think it's really cool to see all your hard work and coo research put together in those pictures. Maybe someday I can see it in person if I ever travel out East. My son would just LOVE to see it also.

Thanks Oscar, I will definitely be adding those to the list. The "BP" one, I haven't seen any 2 letter combinations so do you think it could be a "BB" that was worn down to a "BP"? Plmk what you think about that!
