there is a slight difference in the 2 middle capes ( Not Ledy)
I'm still not sure if it's colour leaching/bleeding

Tom Derby "I was unaware of a further variation on the Han Trenchcoat, but in looking at the 4 I have (3 lighter capes, darker spots - but brown with a hint of a red tone, and 1 darker, possibly faded material cape, like yours with lighter spots, but a more muted brown, also with a hint of red), I would have trouble calling one a red variation and one a brown variation. These differences are slight production variances and exist on almost all figures."

@AJ...who's picture is that, tom derby's?

@All....so this cape is either fade or a production variant?, but don't things fade and go lighter?

I was watching this video and there it is, the missing Leia Organa LA GUERRA DE LAS GALAXIAS EL IMPERIO CONTRAATACA Lili Ledy carded example , if someone knows french and contact Pote Snitkin www.mintinbox.net • Afficher le sujet - Catalogue personnel, for better images or a copy of his volumes, that would be awesome since I have never seen a carded Lili Ledy EL IMPERIO CONTRAATACA using the same Kenner image instead of the generic background shown here:



A post from RS member Lt__Brenn_Tantor got my attention.

http://forum.rebelscum.com/t1092548-2/


Apparently, the team working on the Star Wars Visual Checklist released a new vid on January 13th.



On 1:00 you can see a picture of what looks like a EL IMPERIO CONTRAATACA MOC.




Could this be the real thing? That would be awesome!

Lt__Brenn_Tantor suggested to contact Pote Snitkin (one of the authors working on the Visual Checklist) for more detailed pics of this page in the book. Sounds like a good idea and maybe we can ask him also about the source of the picture.

Who is good at french and would like to contact? Stephane, Paul, Fabrice,...?

Yes, it would be interesting to know the origin of that figure, since so far it is very well known that all LL ESB MOC's came on the same generic card, which featured the Millennium Falcon flying in deep space from the side. The only thing they changed were the name stickers and bubbles, pretty much like Glasslite did much later in Brazil, where they used the same card for every figure and just changed the name stickers for each one of them.

Best regards

Carlos

While looking up Ledy cardbacks I came across this custom, which may help illustrate what the one in the book above is like:

Good cath, Steve. Cool

Is that one of those which have been "painstakingly" produced by any chance?

lol! Yes it is! You're clearly familiar with the guys work.
I see this person has made quite a number of custom cards!

Lets hope the one in the book is not a custom designed to show what the line 'could have' looked like.

Thank you for getting this info directly from the author, Fabrice! Very Happy

The existence of this Imperio Contraataca MOC, would have been too good to be truth.

If I was the author, I would change the picture to a front picture of a real Imperio Contraataca cardback (with the Millennium Falcon).

Just thought I'd share a photo of 2 Lili Ledy Logray colour variants variations for reference/whatever; I like the different painted mouths too

There is quite some variation going on with the Ledy Lograys.

They're certainly gaining in popularity! I think we'll soon see prices skyrocketing insanely as more private collectors begin to release them from their collections at last What a Face

Just to reiterate what Joe said, so it is said a couple times here and hopefully people don't continue to believe this, it was a joke a few years ago in the thread I linked to.

There is no such thing as a black Wampa variant


Joe and Shawn feeling very proud after having served the vintage community so well.




Congrats gents, job well done!!


I am eagerly awaiting their RS thread that Santa Claus does not exist as well. Cool
