I've suspected this about other figures, and I know that accessories can be factory specific (see Craig T's posts concerning Jedi Luke which he has absolutely cracked the code on). There were a finite number of factories, and it seems reasonable that the same factory could produce an HK COO along with a blank COO of the same family, in the same factory. And, if not, then when the factory producing a blank COO figure got the molds, they perhaps got the die to cut the capes as well. Or, maybe they just got samples to follow. But there is obviously a good deal of wiggle room with these capes, likely because the process is as Bryan explained it. Sort of like trying to cut several pieces of paper at one time.

Granted it is only 3 samples, but the chances of 3 random samples ending up with the same mismatched accessory seems unlikely. What I would love to do is have people contribute data. Obviously that was attempted before, and didn't get very far, though.

I thought I would just include a post about the Princess Leia Blasters that cane with my Leias.

- the family I 1a (possible Early Bird Leia) with non zipping cape came with the blue Lili Ledy rough sculpt blaster (pictured top)
- my original family I 1a HK and family IV 2a No Coo came with one of the 3 dark blue / Black Blasters pictured directly below the blue rough sculpt
- my family III 1b HK came with the dark blue v3 blaster from TIG (pictured 2nd from bottom)
- I have also recently purchased what I think is a dark green v3 blaster (pictured bottom)



Close up of dark blue / Black Blasters

I would be interested in your thoughts AJ on these 3 dark blue / Black Blasters. Originally I assumed they were v2 Blasters as they were dark blue/ black but then realised the sight was different. So are they a previously uncategorised blaster or are they a possible v1? Looking at the v1 pics on the TIG website the picture of the blue and translucent green / blue Blasters looks different to the picture above which has writing on it. I have a v1 blue blaster which matches the pic with writing on it and it’s features are very defined with a straight line down the barrel as highlighted. However, in the pics underneath the line appears more curved and the features are less sharp (almost like a different variant but probably a worn mold).

Any help appreciated.

Those look fine, the Leia blaster section needs some work ( a few more versions to be added/explained)
