Yes.  Here is a post about the toltoys, but the Coo is the same.  See the post by Brenn tantor.  The old coo chart pic is in the post there.

This is wolff's current guide.  The vinyl cape jawa is family I.

Yep all VC Jawas (US & Toltoys) have the 'H' of Hong Kong closer to the foot than the copyright symbol. This mould family is IMO Kader produced. But Jawas from this family are just as/more likely to be cloth cape. ie. a naked Jawa with these leg markings is just a Jawa- not a Vinyl cape Jawa without it's cape.

Mould family II has a space between 'Hong' & 'Kong'

mould III has 4 versions, the one not pictured has a bigger space between Copyright & 'G'

AJ - That's awesome, but how did you know the VCJ is Kader (HG)? Was it comparing the gun to carded samples of ESB and ROTJ cards? Or was it the eyes? Appreciate any more info on this as I am updating my loose figure database.

Was reading these before I found your reply...

I haven't tracked down my VCJ that I bought as a teen with my paper money (and sold for the little baby in 2016); but I have picked-up a temporary replacement; I was thinking of smashing out of it UKG case and checking what COO it has.

I’m also extremely interested in this, having received one in the post today:D . I knew that the VCJ Mould needs to have the HONG KONG closer to the foot than the copyright symbol but had overlooked that there were two variants of this (Family Ia and Family Ib). The VCJ I received today came with Family Ia but I have a better condition Family Ib. From your comments can I assume it is safe to swap the figure and go with the Ib if so desired?
