PostSubject: Leia Boushh Questions (new no-coo problem?)   Wed Jun 26, 2013 8:22 am

Hi guys, i'm after a little help again.
 
I recently purchased this Taiwan Leia Boushh Variant with the "Brown Torso". It's been one of those variants that I've tried to acquire for a while now and have rarely seen any for sale.
 
However i'm a little concerned looking at the finish to the cream section of the torso (between the legs) and have alarm bells ringing in my head as it looks touched up and feels tacky to touch.
 
So is this a repaint or is this what these figures look like? Does the paint bulge up when rubbed (as seen between the legs)?
 
I would love to hear your comments?....

Now i'm 100% certain that both the Rifle & Helmet are the HONG KONG issue. This doesn't bother me too much as these can easily be replaced.

Have you got comparison pics of your rifles?

I hope the one in the middle- different stock pattern ( like diamonds ) is Taiwan

The no COO is derived from the Hong Kong mould, so it seems logic that this figure came also with a HK helmet (with a letter inside).

I don't know which weapon mould belongs to the HK or Taiwan figure. Is there a specific mould for any of the two versions? unsure 

If so, it would be logic that the no COO version came with the HK mould.

Congrats on the figure BTW! Very Happy

I think it should be as follows, as both models are v1.

Shiny - Taiwan
Dull - Hong Kong

My little line up is now complete enough for me...



1.Lili Ledy / Mid-Brown Paint
2.Lili Ledy / Dark Brown Paint / Unpainted Over-stock Helemt
3.Taiwan COO/ Brown Molded Torso / Unpainted Helmet
4.NO COO
5.Hong Kong COO

Getting dark here so the photo is rubbish Mad

Ejector pin circles often don't 'mean' anything but with the Leia Boushh rifle the no COO version is made of firmer plastic. scratch
