PostSubject: Holy Leia Bespin Capes, Batman!   Wed Dec 11, 2013 1:30 pm

I thought I would share a few pictures with everyone since they made me smile in an odd way.

I have been going through all my Leia Bespin figures these past couple of weeks for documenting and research of all the capes that I have. When I had them all out at once, I just had to shake my head and giggle a bit at all the capes I have now. Actually, I have a few more that were not in the photos, but not enough to make any visible difference to the overall effect. I believe there are about 45 in the shots.  cyclops 

I just thought I would share with you what a pile of capes looks like from a focus collector's focus.  Cool 

enjoy! Smile

V1 Style


V2


V3


ALL


The last shot just screams "a deck of cards" to me! I seriously am thinking about making a deck of cards with that pattern on the back! Razz

cheers!
Very Happy

hehe Laughing
Hundreds, if not, thousands of pictures! And a huge part of my focus is research so I know which capes go where.  geek

A neat trick. I boil about 2" of water and place the cape in it for a few seconds. Then I place them between two photographs (the back side), press down hard for a few more seconds and then place the 'sandwich' under cold water. It helps restore the creases and arm holes. If you try it, be careful!

I have a lot more information that I will be sharing soon, but basically...
v1s are shorter and wider than the v2 and v3s.
The v2 and v3s are the same shape but have different patterns compared to each other.

Yes, I have spent way too much time on Leia Bespin! Smile

OH.... and



hehe

cheers!
Very Happy

Love the cards Jay - super F'en cool  :clap: 

That's one hell of a stack of capes you got there man  Shocked 

Focus collectors like you really contribute tons of fantastic info - I have learned more about Bespin Leias in the short time that you have focused on her than I had learned in the previous 7 + years that I have gotten back into Star Wars figures  cheers 

Can't wait to see and hear more  cyclops

Thanks!

As for the "Meccano" Geisha Leia... I have seen a few different figures (3 actually) that people call same name.
I personally don't call any of them Meccano. I refer to the three as having pale/paler faces than the rest.
Can you put a picture up of the face and COO you are referring to? (I will guess you mean a no COO (COO#5) perhaps???)

This one?



cheers!
Very Happy

EDITED TO ADD PIC
