PostSubject: The Luke Farmboy Saber Coordination Thread   Sun Aug 31, 2014 7:57 am

THE LUKE FARMBOY SABER COORDINATION THREAD

With help from
8bitaaron, Bramistuta25, dontbedoindope, Dublinjeff, Jake Arellano, Mark Yeo Yian Hui, Mike-Skywalker, psybertech, snaggletooth, Robbie, Brody_Walker 
and others to be announced.

So after Aaron has given permission to fully check his photobucket stuff, I now have some references for Luke Farmboy Baggies and Mocs to somehow start the belonging of various sabers to various Luke Farmboys. So in the beginning, all info is just based on the pictures I have from aaron, more to follow. Hope this thread helps and grows with all your help.

These are only first statements after checking, feel free to enrichen us all if you know corrections or any different ...

Sealed Baggie Statements ...
1. Luke dark brown hair (blue letter "Kenner Made in Hong Kong" on baggie) has tan pants and the
saber has a round transition tip, like TIGs "Luke Skywalker Telescoping Lightsaber Original V4"
Rounded Tip Transition. Smooth Texture.
**Mention: Dark brown hair Luke Farmboy on a ESB41E - "U" (Unitoys factory code) comes with a
"Luke Skywalker Telescoping Lightsaber Original V1"Flat Tip Transition. Thin Tip. Solid Colour.


2. Luke blond hair (blue letter "Made in Taiwan" on baggie) has darker tan pants and the
saber has a smooth tip transition, like TIGs "Luke Skywalker Telescoping Lightsaber Original V5"

Thank you for the kind words.

Yes, will be tough to get it all right as I don't want any help from cardrippers or ugraders. Very Happy
But it bothers me as I want my Luke Farmboy Focus Figures have their correct sabers.
Only hires pictures of MOCs can tell us something, so please check all your shelves!

Hopefully other collectors here with LFB moc and baggies will chime in. Can't help myself altho I do have 2 sabers I'd like to discuss at some point.

Any chance Aaron and others will allow some pics here?

One thing else might be handy - especially for inclusion on IG - is which sabers sink or float if you have confirmed loose versions.

I am taking photos of my sabers and I was wondering about the colours. I have almost flashy neon-like sabers with thin tips, some sunflower yellow and their paler counterparts. some of the sunflower-yellow and the paler ones have letters and I agree with the common opinion that sabers with letters were earlier versions, right? So pale yellow is very old, sunflower-yellow is medium and flashy neon-like yellow is the later production series?

Can anyone who owns 12Back or 21Back MOCs can explain, which colours are used along with their Lukes?

I wonder if I can get Pat out of 'retirement' to look at his Luke sabers?
It may be important to track the 'factory code' of the MOCs when checking for the correct saber.
ie. 
http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t6779p30-endor-blaster-pistol-wg-20
http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t7266p15-royal-guard-pike-help
etc.

Luke Farmboy is one of the characters I do not have enough of (especially sabers  Crying or Very sad )

This is a really good thread, very informative,  well done 'TheGent' :clap:
It would also be great if the research that you have provided could be accompanied with some pics of both MOC / baggie and loose examples.

Unfortunately I can only help with a pic of a loose example  MITW Luke, complete with correct saber,
as (like A.J) Luke farmboy variants are also a character that I'm short of Sad

Thank you for your kind words, make me go on with this aside from my mad completionist mind.
Pictures are already there, few people still need to give their okay for a use.
But pictures will soon follow.

I just started this thread and field of work because I hated receiving Luke Farmboys with uncorrect sabers.
In the end, there will be no bible of sabers, but a sort of orientation for loose collectors.

This looks like a 2line Large Hong Kong Coo Figure,
can it be on a Secret Figure Offer Card? Anyone?

This is a call to all collectors to up some pictures of their luke Farmboy Mocs. Especially with close up pictures of the saber tip. I am especially looking for thin tip sabers, hope to sort them to specific figures. This is not my most desperate hour, but... 

Help me, moc collectors, you're my only hope.

I'm moving this thread temporarily to the main section so hopefully more Luke FB MOC owners will see it and get some pics up.

Are the thinner tip non DT sabers the earliest versions of the NON DT?
