my recent purchase of a black belt Taiwan boba has got me thinking . what other Taiwan fetts are out there variation wise? I know of the blue painted helmet and the black belt variant but what else is known . I love fett as much as the next guy (which is pretty much everyone ) but is there more ? loose variations are endless and ive been a collector for well over 25 years (on and off ) but im very curious about boba fetts in particular now .

is there a brown belt fett Taiwan ? it seems there is although this black belt is the only one I own Taiwan coo wise

Meccano no coo fetts- ive seen there are 2 no coo meccanos out there . I own one . is there more than 2

ledy fetts - I own the regular version and know of the removable rocket version . any others

hk fetts light and darker chest paint - I recently saw an auction for a neon painted chest fett , cant say ive ever heard of this one ??? just degradation?? id imagine so ... if not is he a known variant?

pbp fetts we all know the deal on im not gonna get into the 10 varaitions on them as info is quite known.

any input on the mighty boba would be nice to hear from some who own other variants ... cheers fellas cheers  cheers

I think the "neon green variant" originated on eBay in order to generate more money from people's bank accounts. lol!

I don't think I've seen more than two different Meccano, and have only heard of the regular Ledy/ removable rocket.

@Hellhippie, Bill,
Steve had a Meccano Fett run a few years back and ended up noting 4 versions.
You can see some pics in his old FS here: http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t5352-meccano-fett-all-4-versions-2-are-mint-price-550-firm-sold?highlight=Meccano+Fett+limelight


edit: found the pics of his old limelight too: http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t3822-my-french-true-trilogo-fetts-otherwise-known-as-meccano-fetts?highlight=Meccano+Fett+limelight




Re: the Taiwan, here are the pics of my Taiwan dark brown belt, moulded helmet if that helps:

Do not forget there is two distinct Hong Kong Fett families ( big and small copyright ) big copyright is the same family as the Meccano Fett. And there is a dark belt HK Fett.
