PostSubject: Female Trooper?   Mon May 13, 2013 8:45 am

Morning all...

So I picked this up as either the find of the day or the sucker & his money are soon parted.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/151030561588?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

I've not found ANY reference that there was ever a female trooper made, however, I didn't want to possibly miss this if it was just my shoddy research. With 1,500 figures, it's possible I have a piece of junk, but just in case, does anyone know if there was a female trooper made?

Here are the ebay photos, and I'm not out a great deal, so the condition was secondary to the purchase.

Let me know what you think.

That's just a regular Legacy space trooper:

I'm only wondering about the KENNER-2005 marking. But I see the figure & know it's the same now. The legacy was 2008, I will have to wait a few days for this to be delivered & then I'll post "new" pics & info...

I had a feeling I was wrong, but a $2 placeholder is always ok too. My focus to the troopers & clones won't be wasted.

I believe the legacy space trooper was the first stormie to have a removable helmet....could be wrong though, but I can't find any others before 2008.

If you're after a female stormtrooper, one was issued in the Legacy collection 'Joker Squadron' Battle Pack.

Mate id suggest getting a reference book, you can pick up a cheap $20 one like the star wars super collector wish book, it has basic pictures of every figure up to its edition number and a million other starwars items, it has every vintage figure pictured and named and every modern.
If you want the starwars figure bible the John Kellerman action figure book is great but until his second edition book comes out the 2nd hand prices are around 200 bucks.

Some of the other guys might like to chime in with a good reference book here, but id really suggest getting one, it will help you heaps, cheers

Thats the first time I've heard about the Wish Book... I have heard of the Kellerman & knew the next edition was due out soon.

That would be an awesome thread...

Thanks!

I think that's how I missed the female. I was looking at carded, not multipacks. But looking at those battle packs, I see more troopers/clones in my future.

Well, I have the stumper here now...

It is marked 2005, but it does ALMOST appears the same as the 2008 Legacy Spacetrooper (minor detail differences - backs of hands are different, like leftovers from a mold?)

LL- Has LFL under date

RL - Hasbro / China / ????C (I'm seriously not sure what the 5 characters are except the last C)

Got a photo of the figure in question?


If your trying to find info on specific figures, try THIS:  

http://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Ultimate-Action-Collection/dp/1452111308/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1377458083&sr=8-1&keywords=steve+sansweet

It has photos of just about every figure from 1978 to the first half of 2012.
