PostSubject: *HELP* Tusken Raider NO COO? / Stormtrooper COO?   Sat Aug 17, 2013 11:21 am


I recently purchased a childhood french collection with several nice Meccano/Euro variants, these two figures were part of the collection.

Tusken Raider - Similar to COO#7 but with the HOND KONG scarred out.



Stormtrooper - Similar to COO#11 but the H and G are still visible where the date is.



I have a feeling what the Tusken Raider is study , as for the Stormtrooper he does not have the hard PBP torso, maybe a Tri-Logo variant?

Hey Stefan

The Tusken is Hollow tubes right? That is the coo for the french variant Wink 

As for the Stormie - trilogo variant - i think mine may have coo remnants remaining - will check..

Okay...that drives me nuts. I have seen/had in hands 10 or so of this no coo Tusken, but ALL of them had that "Stefan" coo.....this one I have never seen.

You saved me Coo sheet from a strange note...where I wonderd that only ONE of the HKs was altered to that no coo, while it is always a pair!!

So the question is:

Can I borrow your picture for the guide? I would watermark it of course!

Thanks

Wolff

Ahh...and I am btw pretty proud that I recognized the matching HK coo. If you ever had tried on Tuskens...this are tricky as hell! But seeing Gregs no coo It was 100% that what I assumed!! Baaaammm!

(Lee and ALex already saw the coo guide...so these are my witnesses!! Wink )

Another COO added to your guide. I wonder how many more will be found after its release?

I am pretty sure that it will be only "minor" ones (you know: H more down...7 more up...etc)! The main oney are all in! Very Happy;)

I still find it pretty funny: Gregs coo should be out there in the same number as the other one. The odds of seeing and having always the same one are pretty small. But I had the same on Han "Euro/PBP": I had 7 in my collection....lots more in my hands...but needed to buy the 8th to have the alternative coo...sometimes it is just strange!

There is a tell tale pattern of bumps from the COO erasure.

Yes, you can use any of my pictures.
