Hi Guys,

This subject has already been brought up in the collecting 101 Q & A thread.

I have a Y Wing Bi-logo box with two Made in Mexico/Fabrique au Mexique stickers on it,Craig also has a tri-logo Rancor with the same stickers.

Are both our items classed as Lili Ledy even though our boxes don't have the actual LL logo? :scratch:

Here's some pics of my box:

Y Wing Bi-logo box with Made in Mexico stickers 003-2
Y Wing Bi-logo box with Made in Mexico stickers 005-2
Y Wing Bi-logo box with Made in Mexico stickers 006-2

Can any of the LL collectors shed some light as to why these boxes have MIM stickers on them please? Very Happy

Cheers,

Mark.

Ok now that i've seen the box it's not Ledy.

I think somehow someone placed a MIM sticker on it.

Dan. cheers cheers

Could be that the toy was made in Mexico but the boxes where produced for a different country, I mean there tri, logo offcourse they where made for a different country but tha for some reason maybe overproduction they where shipped to use for the in Mexico made toys to safe a few bucks , and then at the stage off finall product for legal reasons to be save from any legal matters , They added the sticker , like the blackmarker on
palitoy cardbacks , idont know just a thought

As far as i understand things, the Ledy factory not only made their own stuff, but also some stuff for the US (Kenner) market to help keep up with demand. That stuff has normal Kenner cardbacks/boxes but is marked Made in Mexico. So it isn't really Ledy, although it was made in the same factory. Most MIM figures appear to have the same traits as Ledy figures tho. I'm not sure about vehicles etc...
