Hey Marco, AJ, Ozio ect.... or whomever would be kind enough to answer a question I have : )
Had a short conversation with someone on RS today. They had mentioned AFA won't grade a LL Fett with a blue Ledy blaster, only black Ledy blaster. I had heard this before in reading other threads. I actually wrote Luis G. about this but haven't heard back yet. Is this because no known carded Ledy Fett has been found with a blue blaster? Seems strange AFA won't grade a Ledy Fett with a Ledy blue blaster. I apologize if this topic has been covered before. I did a search and had trouble finding info regarding this... Many thanks for your knowledge on this topic : )

Hey Steve,,
I think the answer to your question can best be given by pictures of Lili Ledy Boba Fett MOCs.
Blue or black gun? Both? scratch


There are some pics of MOCs around the internet (I can't link them right now for you from phone).
Members who actually own a Fett MOC might chime in and post pics as well. I know for instance that Adolfo (Merlin) owns a graded one.

I'd like to know people's opinions on supposed test shot / head pull test prototypes, are they the real deal or not?

The Squid cape is a 'weird' colour but there are a few versions : http://swspaceclub.com/wbobafett/lili-ledy-variants/
I've got a few Rebo band pictures on page 1 of this thread.

Rebo looks right to me, sy has bold spots, max has nice blue limbs. Obviously can't check mould marks under piano due to lack of photo.

Will ask for photo of LL squidhead for unique COO, but not sure about cape. How do you tell?

Hi Walkie, this seems dodgy. Evil or Very Mad

But just in case this might be the real thing please remove the reference to the active auction (sorry TIG policy with a reason).

Instead you can copy the pictures to your own picture hosting site (like Photobucket) and post them here.

Another advance: the pics will remain in this thread, whereas ebay auctions will be gone in a few months. Very Happy

I believe that's the one that came with the Classic Edition 4-pack Vader. I'll dig mine out in a while to make sure.

I think you might be correct Evil or Very Mad square hilt & the shorter tip. My 4 pack is still MISB if you could do a comparison pic as well that would be great.

Good spot, AJ & Steve!!! Very Happy

Hasbro's Classic Edition Sabers.


http://forum.rebelscum.com/t1065161/

So when buying a Ledy Vader you should check the saber carefully to avoid getting the Hasbro version.


BTW: I can understand why Ledy and later Hasbro decided to use moulds with the thicker tips. The Kenner tips are so fragile.

I wish I had spotted it BEFORE I bought it :I am stupid: I saw the thicker tip & the usual stress mark & didn't give it a second thought.

EDIT: credit to the seller (Ruben-psboym) issued a full refund.

It would have fooled me too. Thicker tip and stress marks (mostly) = Lili Ledy, never thought about the Hasbro saber before.

Refund still possible, or did it happen a too long time ago?
