Thanks Steve, it was looking at yours that actually had me questioning mine. Mine seems more brown, yours is more reddish (could be a lighting thing). I did get mine from a 'reliable' Mexican collector but it's always good to double/triple check these things Smile


You're right, the reddish colour in my photo is due to lighting (I'll have to re-take it). The cape is a lot more brown in hand.
I'm sure you will get other opinions. Wink

Check Ozio's link from his special report.

There are a lot of cape variants out there. Very Happy

hi, everyone i'm new here. i'm still trying to find the 'introduce yourself topic' but i wouldn't mind your help identifiy this Logray staff.

My HK variant is on the left, and on the right is my Lili Ledy





Both the hood and the bag are the correct glossy plastic with the unique number and 'LL' stamped on them.

However the LL? staff i'm worried about (on the right), it is glossy plastic unlike the normal HK staff but it has no 'LL' marking and there are two mould circles.





It was brought off a mexican seller on eBay who sells alot of LL items and claims there are two 'LL' staff moulds.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you

welcome to TIG!

Please let us get to know you a bit better: http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t3123p525-who-s-who-introduce-yourself-here

About your Logray staff. Sofar I have only seen Ledy staffs with the small "LL" mark. I doubt whether they used any other mould.

But in case Ledy did, I would expect the staff still to be made from the same rubbery plastic. Is that the case?

Its a v2 mould but glossy. The seller claims its a first edition ledy mould.

If you fancy checking it out i've pm'ed you the eBay number and his seller name.

I wanted to share the Lili Ledy video limelight from Mexican collector Madhunter. (kudos to Walkie for letting me know)

Though my Spanish is not that good, I enjoyed every minute of it. I hope you do so too.




BTW: This is the 1000th post in this thread, crazy!!! Thanks for all your Ledy contributions over the last two years guys!
Now let's move on to the next 1000 posts! Cool

The current thoery was that the Hong Kong (brown eye) Ledy Yoda was released on “Imperio Contraataca” cards.

Here it appears on an early Retorno card. So maybe a transition figure released on the earlier cards. scratch

Excellent as always.

Do you plan to add the squid head entry soon?, it appears to be the only standard figure left.

Knowing Marco, he'll be waiting to have at least 2 examples of each version in his hands in order to make an accurate entry.

I think it is safe to confirm it. Cool

From page 46:


WARNING: VARIANTS TALK Very Happy


The Lili Ledy Squid Head and Lando came with dark grey Bespin blasters.

On page 4 and 5 of this thread there is some discussion what moulds these grey guns had?

  • V1 (version with the wide grip)?
  • V5 (version with the big trigger hole)?
  • Both?


V1 mould



V5 mould




Let's look at some evidence to get some answers....

1) AJ posted pics of two Lili Ledy MOCs a while ago (from Christian's collection).
From these pics, it is clear that Lando came with the V1 gun. Squid with the V5 gun.







2) John recently picked up a Lando MOC and provided these pictures to me. Thanks John. Very Happy
This Lando was packed with a V5 instead of a V1 gun.










3) And Adolfo (Merlin) picked up a Lili Ledy Lando MOC which contained a black V1 gun.







So based upon this info, it is safe to conclude that:
  • Lando came with a dark grey V1 or V5 gun, or a black V1 gun.
  • Squid Head came with a dark grey V5 gun.


Remaining Questions:
  • Did Lando also come with a blue V1 gun? MOC proof needed here!
  • Did Squid Head also come with the dark grey V1 gun? Also here a picture of a MOC would proof it.


Need your input here, guys!

Thanks for the info, i'm more concerned about the Luke Bespin figure, can anyone confirm what bespin blaster/s came with this item?

Blue v1 / Blue v5 / Black ??

I am not aware of the existence a blue V5 Ledy gun.

Nor have I ever heard that Luke came with a black gun.

So my best guess: The Ledy Luke Bespin came with a V1 blue Bespin gun.

(except for the blonde Luke Bespin who came with a blue smuggler gun).

Does that help?
