What makes you believe these to be poch? The Luke looks like a degradation not the pale hands paint, the same with lobot.

These photos would convince you?




Leah and luke were bought together as a pair.

To me your figure looks faded versus a lighter cream like I see from the pbp/poch thread. http://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t4427p465-the-poch-pbp-guide-discussion-thread-part-one#95812
Your pictures do appear to have a more yellow tint though so it is possible the lighting of your pic is making it appear that way. Hellhippie knows a lot more about poch than I do though so he may be able to see matching details better than myself.

Sorry to say, but I'm not seeing a much in the way of POCH traits on these figures.

Are there any weld marks, poor sonic welds, bubbles in the paint?

welcome to the site ... they are very nice figures but 100% not poch

Stef will tell you also

your lukes pants are way off so are the hands

Lobot is wrong also should have a reddish cyborg headpiece and also the hand color is wrong

there is a pure pink hand leia made in spain but the hands should be much more pink and the facial details seem off ..

sorry but they are in very good shape

hope this helps

here are some of my poch examples...

notice lukes pants colors, greenish not yellow , see the poch colored hands pale white not yellow .. see the cracks in the neck on the yellow haired example . meltmarks are present in both

lobot reddish headpiece once again see the hands ?my example is non sonic welded with many meltmarks and excessive flashing

leias face is pink with very dark pink paint , meltmarks and poor sonic welding along with excessive flashing , all traits associated to poch figures and what Stef (walkie  ) is saying

on a side note this leia is extremely rare ... theyre are other pink hands leias out there none with this dark pochy pink though

Here are more pictures of the Leah in the day, and not under yellow light. Leah hands are extremely pink and seems that they have been dipped in a can of paint. Observe the mark on her head also.

As usual with poch discussion I want to point out that having melt marks, poor sonic welding, sloppy paint application are not in and of themselves identifiers for a poch figure. In fact it is these clues that added with paint detail that make a figure a poch figure. Kenner figures can also have sloppy paint, poor sonic weld, melt marks, etc...so when dealing with poch figures everyone should always take all clues added together as a whole and not focus to extremely on one specific trait if others are missing.

For me poch figures are some of the hardest to identify and I still want a copy of javi's book someday when I can gather the money to afford it.

Am not 100 percent sure regarding luke and lobot, however the pink hands Leah is definitely a poch. Luke and Leah were bought from a Spanish collector.

There was a similar Luke on Ebay just the other day. I was close to bidding on it as I initially thought it was Poch, but after a closer look came to the conclusion it was discolouration. It went quite cheap so hope i was right. lol!

This is NOT similar. The hands are pink and the neck is faded in the eBay one.
