Does the white Chief Chirpa figure have a specific COO found always on the white fur kind? The reason I ask is I have trouble telling the differences in colors sometimes when I look at variants. Without a regular Chief Chirpa next to a white one, I don't know if I could tell the difference. I don't want to get scammed on ebay or elsewhere, and looking at a monitor does not help in distinguishing shades sometimes. I was thinking if I can rule in or out figures based on their COO's, that would help me track down this figure. Thanks.

If I remember right he has been found with different coo markings. Supposedly has lighter tunic and staff but I can't see the difference on the tunic or staff of mine.

I believe the consensus is there are 4 coo's for the white fur variety but all of those are shared with the greys. There's more info in this thread, http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t7507-white-fur-chief-chirpa

When searching on ebay or just through images I find looking at the contrast between the face and hood the best way to determine if it's white or not but without a direct comparison this is still guess work.

I believe I have a white fur Chirpa with correct lighter brown staff, it's COO no.4

Can anyone confirm on these pics?

Cheers

It looks like a white version to me but it's difficult to be 100% certain from a photo especially without a grey in shot for comparison.

I see a lot of white Chirpas in the UK and all of them seem to have loose arms, I was just wondering if anyone can check theirs and let me know if this is a common trait or just a coincidence on the ones I've seen. cheers cheers

Hi Mumbo

Roger is right i have a couple of white furs now and both have loose limbs, all my others are stiff/tight, the white furs seem to actually be loosely made?

The staff is correct as you suspected Mumbo and the chief does look the right kind of white but as Roger said it is to hard to say without a grey fur next to him? have you got a grey fur to compare to?

Ok lets play a game of eye spy....... which one is the suspected white fur??



Having checked limbs they are actually looser than I thought, they hold a pose but only just.

Third from left looks like the white fur. I do see the tunic is also lighter as I have been told it should be.

Yeah but that was far too easy tongue

He has some what look like pen marks on his front leg and there is some small wear to the knife holder, so what do you think his valuation would be?

I'd be happy to sell to beachboy19 if he's interested.

Looking at the last ones that sold on ebay, complete ones with pale hood and staff for around £25 in great condition, with just a hood and no staff half of that. This is just what they have sold for on ebay and has no reflection on a price you choose.

Pm me if Beachboy doesn't need him Wink

This one just kind of happened, but in the future please follow board rules for selling. They are stickied in the classified section.

Thanks Bill it must be just a play worn thing then Smile

At least it clears that up, I was wondering myself to be honest if they produced like that or if it was just wear and tear.

I hope Javi is well enough soon to send out our books, I can wait, but obviously I want asap, like you said it will be like Christmas when it arrives Very Happy
