Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2)
 

 
NOTE:
The Glasslite R2-D2 has the same 1985 COO (no. 2) as the Kenner figure which is used below for comparison. Therefore COO no.2 should not be considered unique to Glasslite.

COO advise and help?....
 
C-3PO: Glasslite Droids / Glasslite POTF / Kenner Droids / Kenner

 
C-3PO: Glasslite Droids / Glasslite POTF


Here we have 4 "Raised Bar" COO's, from left to right (top photo)

Glasslite Droids (???? Shorter Bar)
Glasslite POTF (COO#4)
Kenner Droids (COO#4)
Kenner is 1982 (COO#1)

Is this another case of differences between a pair of moulds?, Is COO#4 on longer unique to Glasslite?

Thanks Scott. Eventually I hope to add carded figures, coins, vehicles etc...

As for the R2's, yeap there sweet, but that glasslite one is a nightmare to get hold of. Sad

Question Time:

Q1: Should I include the Poon Vlix with my original Vlix, when I make that entry?

Q2: Does anyone know if the Droids HK fett came with a special gun, we know the Droids Taiwan fett came with the V5 (with/without) dot.

1. Comparison pics are always useful
2. A HK Droids Fett is something that has only recently been discussed to my knowledge, so getting an answer may take a while longer.

To be fair the Poon Vlix is easy to spot as the limbs are dowelled, but the repro gun is molded black so it would be good to show that.
 
HK fetts = tricky!

Some info on Droids Fetts/Cards/Guns..... http://www.starwarsforum.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=13865

Question: Card shows "MADE IN TAIWAN" on the reverse, Figure appears to be "HK", so is this a case of overstock?





However here we have a toy fair sample with "HONG KONG" on the reverse, original theswca link... http://theswca.com/images-droid/cardedsample-droidsfett-2.jpg

It's actually very enjoyable. The card back and production matrix should be completed?!? early next week.

I'd love to add a few new figure entries but I need some 'quiet' time for that when my son isn't running around like a mad man!!! Wink
