PostSubject: Bespin Luke Variants (Poch, PDP??)   Thu Oct 06, 2016 3:54 am

I recently bought a collection of star wars figures that seems to have a number of variants. Five of the figures in the collection were Bespin Lukes which all seem to differ in one way or another. I'm wondering if anybody can help me identify these particular figures. Cheers.

From what I can tell the figures vary based on the boot color, size of the figure, coo code on the back, facial features, color and tone, width of how far legs are spread, as well as hand size and color...

Although I have begun collecting sw figures again, my limited observations are that:
Figures one and two, although they have different color boots and hands, possess the same COO, facial features, and color tone (which is mo





re glossy). Numbers three four and five also have similar color tone and the same COO, but their facial features, boot color, and height varies.

As seen in the picture, figure 2 is taller than 1, figure 3 is taller than 2, 4 is taller than 3, and 5 is taller than 4.

I am thinking that based on his pale hands, #1 may be a POCH figure, but I will defer to other's expertise...  Also, if anyone is able to identify the particular variations of these figures, if they could also tell me the relative rarity that would be extremely helpful. Cheers.

ps when standing up, the order of one and two got reversed from their laying down positions. My apologies.

welcome Please do not use leg spread as a means of determining 'variants'

Some useful info here : http://swspaceclub.com/wbobafett/coo-guide-3-0/esb/luke-skywalker-bespin-fatigues/#a

Ok, that's probably good advice. As I said, I'm new to the game, and is there a def. a steep learning curve. This is particularly true since I'm color blind and cannot easily discern shading.

PostSubject: are any of these variant figures?   Thu Oct 06, 2016 12:09 pm

Here are more pics of the figures in question. A couple of things I noticed was that the heads on figures 3, 4, 5 all look like their about to pop off -- perhaps this is a product of mismatched parts similar to what is seen in pdp figures (just a new hope I have) The figures are presented in order based on what is seen in the first picture. Thanks everyone.







After doing more research, I don't think these figures are POCH or PBP. Does anyone know if they are legit variants?

I see you got the pics figured out. Disregard my post in the other topic.

its very hard to tell from some of your pictures . there are many many boot colors for pbp luke bespins ranging from very dark to others . the last picture you posted llooks to be a poch luke but as for the others the colors of the hands would be a big part of their id process and im ust not seeing it . where were they purchased? in Europe ? spain? etc... maybe some other pictures would help ut your luke number 1 hands looks to have a degraded yellow tinge to him . if im correct hes not poch . poch pale hands should be much whiter than this . are there any meltmarks on his backside or bubbles in the black paint as poch lukes tend to have this trait . if you bought these in the us odds are they are almost guaranteed to not be poch as finding poch variants outside of Europe is quite rare and pretty darn rare to begin with . aslo the faces on these don't look to be any of the confirmed poch variants that exist .
