Basically, I have somewhere over 2000 loose figures at present and within those, hundreds of variants.

While I am constantly learning, I am no expert. I have been selling a few of the figures to people on the forum trying to help them find certain variants, but each time a new request comes in, I'm essentially starting from scratch, which is time consuming and impractical.

I thought the best solution might be to make a thread with photos, showing which variants I have of each figure. I'm hoping people can help educate me a little in terms of which are true variants, whether any of them are rare (PBP, Ledy etc...) and really any useful info that I can learn.

At the same time, as all figures will be made available for sale, hopefully I can help some people fill in some gaps in their collections, or maybe even just make them aware of variants they didn't know about. Although he probably has most of them, I think I ought to give Wolff first refusal on any of the figures when I make them available for sale as he's taken on a massive project that will help us all.

I have run the idea for this thread past Jay and was given the OK. (I was going to post in the variants thread that already exists, but thought that might get confusing. Also, I think there'll be enough pics posted to justify there own thread.)

Any and all expertise, information and general guidance will be very, very welcome.

Thanks,

Jeremy

I'll be adding the following later tonight to get the thread going:

-Leia Boushh (ADDED)
-Lando Bespin (ADDED)
-Luke Bespin (ADDED)
-Tusken Raider (ADDED)

I just started with one, in case there were any problems with the post, or the format of the image or anything.

There is no super special figure at your Chewies.

The no coo dude with small date is coowise identical to the LL figure but you can also find it as non "LL" variant in Europe.

I hope this helps so far...

Uli

Edit: if you have any Luke Jedis for sale please drop me a pm.

Hi Uli,

Thanks so much for your response.

That's interesting about the Ledy C.O.O.. So how do you tell the difference between the Ledy Chewie and the Euro one?

Not just looking for especially rare ones; hoping to learn in general. Are all 7 roughly equally common? And the two with the same C.O.O. - are they actually different variants because or the eyes or is it just a paint inconsistency? The whites of the eyes are larger and rounder than all the others, thought it was strange.

The Ledy Chewie has some kind of "chocolate brown" body colour...

Ok thanks. So I'm guessing that'll be quite hard to spot? Don't suppose there are any other signs?

-J

P.S. I'll try and list the Luke Jedi variants tonight (I only have 5 or 6 I think)

Jeremy there are again no super variants at. A few are a bit uncommon:

Luke Bespin orange hair, no coo Luke Bespin (Palitoy version imo), Luke Bespin HK Variant 2 (lightsaber connected to belt)

The Leia Boushh Taiwan 3 looks to be the rarer red body version (wrong description) but again not super rare. The two Boushhs with reddish eyes are also a bit harder to get and look cool in a set of Boushh figures.
The Hong Kong #1 Boushh looks to have the LL moulding but is no LL figure - so you LL meniacs go out and buy it as reference!

As for the Rebel Commandos - these are all common for Europe.

I'm looking forward to your Luke Jedi pictures. I'm maybe interested in buying a few of yours as I'm looking for some accessory variants at the moment... pictures would be super cool!

Uli #1 Boushh is a Ledy look alike but not Ledy.

Uli can you post a pic of your correct Ledy Boushh next to Discobob's #1 Boushh.

This figure has made quite debate of which is correct and i'm still confused about what is the correct figure. Can you show me your's and point out the differences in the pic's betwen your Ledy Boushh and #1 Boushh of Discobob's.

Dan. cheers

Yep the #1 Leia Boushh is no LL figure but has the LL moulding. The differences are again (as for many LL figures) the colour of the body (and limbs) and the face.
The body and limbs have dark brown colours - also is the face darker (if I recall right now).

Dan haven't you had pictures of your LL Boushhs ready somewhere or could you post them again in the LL thread (to not bust this wonderfull thread)?

Hi Uli,

This is fantastic stuff! Thanks so much for the help! I'll make sure I get the Jedi Lukes done today.

I think it's better for everyone if you keep posting this information in the thread (instead of a pm) so we can all see it?

With the Leia Boushh - it's variant 3 that's the red body version? Variant 4 that has the silver paint to the collar looks to have more reddish limbs? Sorry, some of this is new to me, so just wanted to double check. Smile

Again, thanks so much mate - really appreciate the info!!! cheers

Hi Mate,

Just added Lando will definitely get at least three more done today (Hopefully more) spreading myself a bit thin but would like to keep this thread going.

Will answer your Pm today as well - not ignoring you, just needed to check something first. Sorry for the delay. Smile

The two Taiwan Leia Boushh? No problem - I'll write it down now.

Yeah the silver paint thing is interesting, it's actually clearer in real life than it is in the pics.
