Still very much "work in progress" guys, i'm not happy with some of the photos and had loads more to upload but ended up scrapping them. I'll try and redo the photos over the weekend in the daylight.

What use is it been an Engineer if I can't use my vernier calipers? and if i'm honest the difference was too bloody hard to capture on photo doing side by side shots.

As for the photos, cheers mate! I ditched the light tent and I was lucky enough then we had some lovely sun over the weekend, so it was back into the conservatory with the camera.

R2-D2

GLASSLITE GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD  - Page 2 ZZdmB3U

NOTE:
The Glasslite R2-D2 belongs to COO family #I,this family contains two main COO marking variations.

The original mold tooling stamped "1977" was produced as part of the power of the force range; commonly referred to as the last 17. All the figures from range lack a country of origin and are simply copyrighted L.F.L followed by a year.

The last modification took place for the Kenner Droids line changing the date from 1977 to "1985". This version of mold tooling was later used by Glasslite as is therefore common to both the Kenner Droids & Glasslite product lines.

The closest COO relative with a "1977" stamp is used for the comparison below.

R2-D2: Glasslite Centre
GLASSLITE GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD  - Page 2 Kl1f55g

R2-D2: Kenner Centre
GLASSLITE GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD  - Page 2 OeapOGe

DIFFERENCES:
Compared to his Kenner counterpart, the Glasslite R2-D2 has:

- A painted silver dome
- A bright red eye
- Darker blue paint ops (dome/legs)
- Hand painted legs (TBC)
- Different screw
- Hard legs, Kenner flex
- Different Decal
- Different COO
- A light green lightsaber

ACCESSORIES:
The Glasslite R2-D2 came with a semi-transparent light green lightsaber compared to the Kenner which is darker; both lightsaber mouldings have an EPM on the handle. As Glasslite produced the POTF and Droids lines at the same time it should be considered that both lightsabers came from the same factory stock and should be considered identical.

DIFFERENCES:
Compared to the Kenner Lightsaber, the Glasslite Lightsaber is:

- Light Green
- Semi-transparent
- Floats on the water test

WATER TEST:
- Both lightsabers float when placed in water
- Kenner lightsaber sinks when tapped

Luke Skywalker

GLASSLITE GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD  - Page 2 Z4HfjEG
COO images used with the permission of wbobafett. His coo guide can be found here http://swspaceclub.com/wbobafett/coo-guide-3-0/

NOTES:
The Glasslite Luke Skywalker belongs to COO family #I, this family contains three main COO marking variations.

The original mold tooling was stamped "MADE IN HONG KONG" where the production for the earliest version of this figure took place. During the products life and possibly as part of a cost reduction exercise production was moved to China, there the country of origin "HONG KONG" was machined out of the mold tooling and re-stamped with "CHINA".

The last modification took place for the Meccano (Tri/Mec) line removing the "CHINA" COO by once again machining out the country of origin stamp in the mold tooling. This effect seen in the molded figure is referred to as a "DOUBLE RAISED BAR".

This version of mold tooling was later shipped to Brazil and used by Glasslite and is therefore common to both the Meccano (Tri/Mec) & Glasslite.

A Meccano (Tri/Mec) figure with an identical COO is used for the comparison.

GLASSLITE GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD  - Page 2 L3MxRk8

Luke Skywalker: Glasslite on top
GLASSLITE GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD  - Page 2 MMLuFPv

DIFFERENCES:
Compared to his Meccano (Tri/Mec) counterpart, the Glasslite Luke Skywalker has:

- Pale face, neck and hands
- Lighter yellow hair
- Equal eyebrows
- Darker trousers
- A Black belt
- Hand painted belt / trousers and hands (TBC)
- Excess mould flashing
- Melt marks (*)
- Unique Lightsaber

*Melt marks have been present on 3 of my 4 examples.

EXTRAS:

Glasslite: Mould flash on legs
GLASSLITE GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD  - Page 2 WLr7rIs

Glasslite: Mould flash on arms
GLASSLITE GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD  - Page 2 SujYFon

Poor QA also resulted in minor differences between batches.

- Differences in paint applications.
- Melt marks on the front of the torso.
- Mould flash (see on these example along the legs and arms)

ACCESSORIES:
The Glasslite Luke Skywalker came with a v8 Lightsaber compared to the Meccano (Tri/Mec) v4 Lightsaber. The Lightsaber which came with the Meccano (Tri/Mec) variant is not unique and is therefore labelled as Kenner/Meccano in the comparison photos below.

GLASSLITE GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD  - Page 2 EcH3V2b

Luke Skywalker: Glasslite Lightsaber on top / Meccano (Tri/Mec) Bottom
GLASSLITE GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD  - Page 2 ZQcdSxa

DIFFERENCES:
Compared to the Meccano/Kenner lighsaber, the Glasslite lightsaber is:

- Duller in colour
- Thicker Tip
- Longer in length
- Floats during the water test

WATER TEST:
- Both lightsabers float when placed in water
- Meccano/Kenner lightsaber sinks when tapped

James,

- Leia

It looks like you have the other Leia COO which belongs to Glasslite, which I don't currently own.

GLASSLITE GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD  - Page 2 Leia_o13

I have #7 in the old COO guide, which I believe originates from #4, where as your originates from #5.

Note the greater gaps between the 77's and the dot between the I & 1 is offset more.

- Snowtrooper, GOT this COO and featured in this guide. It looks like he's suffering from torso mis-alignment like one of mine?
- C-3PO, GOT this COO and featured in this guide
- Chewbacca, GOT this COO and featured in this guide

- Vader, hard to tell is the 9 in offset lower and the M raised?

Cheers

Nice update on Luke, Stef! Very Happy 

Interesting to read much was handpainted on this figure, causing small differences between figures.

It's not the only example of hand painted features....

R2 - blue strips on legs
Leia - white circles on belt

Possible Han Solo hands, but I not 100% sure yet.

Fellow TIG'ers I need your happy. Above are several photos of my Glasslite Vader, does anyone here own one with the different COO markings?
