If you were to choose one favorite figure or piece of an "overseas licensed" line..which would you choose?

Consider the following:

- Harbert

- Lili Ledy

- Takara

- Meccano

- Poch/PBP

- Palitoy

- Clipper

- Parker

- Toltoys

- Glasslite


If none of your favorites are on this list, feel free to add on!

Tough question, the goal of my collection is trying to get at least one Jawa item from all of the above mentioned licensers/countries so picking just one of them is like asking a mother which child is her favorit.
I love the Clipper 12 back but i live in the Netherlands so it doesn't count as overseas. The Meccano vc Jawa is beautiful but French, so again no boat trip is involved.
That leaves me at a tie between the Lili Ledy and the Toltoys Jawa. The Ledy is a super cool figure with the oval eyes, the big blaster, the removable hood and a beautiful cardback but in the end the Toltoys wins as it is basically a beater figure with the "wrong" cape on a card that makes no sence at all Very Happy

I love the back of the POCH MOC's and the front of the Harbert's, but I've always liked the GDE's cheers

I wonder what Bill is going to say scratch lol!

I'm with Andy on front/back


Front is Harbert for me. There are only 2 figs (Yoda and Fett) and the ESB logo is just killer

Back is actually tough. I want to say that either POCH 37/41  or Ledy negative 50bk

I'm with Andy and John on a Harbert front and Poch back. My dream moc for my focus would be a Meccano square card Luc Pilote GDE 20 back :Drool:

I don't do carded, so for me it is all about the loose variants. This makes a few of these things rather plain once off the card. However without a doubt the best variants that have been put out (in my opinion) are from Ledy. I think the burgundy bib fortuna or brick red squid head are the two most quickly recognized Ledy figures and the bib fortuna is my favorite of those two.

lol! Andy , you know it ,,,,,

Poch variants and cardbacks for me .... not a secret i'm quite obsessed with these figures. when John posted that facebook sale my house almost got re fi'd . (not really )

as for the cardbacks gotta go Poch again , no brainer . on a side note if I was a carded collector which everyone like Bryan knows i'm not Harbert would be a close second as they are really cool .
