Found these in my collection today, each of them came with a regular Taiwan Wicket,
but were bought loose so no proof they were sold with those hoods.

One is of darker plastic (I'd say the regular colour) and has a mould circle inside

The other is of slightly lighter brown colour and has the letter "E" inside


Any ideas if both or neither belong to a Taiwan figure? Any additional infos?
Thank you, guys!

Yes, but which belongs to which? Any bear lovers in the gunnery house?

darker firmer hood with 'circle' - no CoO ( Hong Kong)

edit: Ledy ( no CoO ) is also a 'circle' hood.

lighter, more flexible , lettered hood - Taiwan ( H, G, E & more?)

@TheGent - hi, if you can take pics in a similar style to the one below we can add them to the Gunnery



If not we can at least add written info re your circle and letter 'E' version.

Sure, no problem. Glad I can help a little after how this forum guide has helped me over the years of collecting!
Here are links to both in high quality - feel free to edit, crop and resize them to match those in the guide.

If we have something we feel could be added to the guide should we post images here or is there an e-mail address to send them to?

Hey Guys!

I have a softer, lighter 'G' hood (left in the images), and a firmer, darker 'circle' hood (right in the images) if the images are useful for the guide. Also unless it's an age/stretching thing, the 'G' hood is a much better/tighter fit than the 'circle' hood and the definition of the mould is better too, except the 'band' at the top front where the 'circle' hood is slightly better - might be age though since mine are not carded.






Cheers,
Mat
