If you're planing to spend $4500 or throw a best offer on this LL 'prototype set' you should take a look at this:

-No prototypes here, overstock items at best.
-Hood and coat are not original.
-The most important characteristic for a true overstock LL torso is the lack of melt marks on it, and the seller doesn't show that side of torsos on his pictures...
-All the arms on the pictures look bent to the outside, I've seen this characteristic on fake overstock pieces as the result of pulling the arms out of the torsos.


Seller's pictures



Coat and hood are repro. On the second picture: Repro coats on left and right, original on the middle, as you can see the hood and coat included on the sale look exactly as the repro on the left. There's no original dark brown coat for LL Jawa.


Arms on an original LL Jawa are very close to the body, the arms on the Jawa on the left look bent to the outside, I've seen this characteristic on fake overstock pieces as the result of pulling the arms out of the torsos.

I Hope this info helps.
Cheers
Ozio
