Hi everyone,
Im in the process of negotiating a red caped squid head and even though I trust the person fully. Due to the nature of the figure I want to run it past everyone for validity and thoughts.
Here are the pics:

Im very very carefull now with Ledy capes...if you remeber the burgundy Bib fake!

But I can tell you that the belt is Ledy and the gun not (A lot of people think this mold in darkgrey is Ledy....I dont thnik so...the mold MUST be different to be genuine Ledy....but as I said....Im pretty alone on this one, although my gun came from card!)!

He said the gun is MIM. He never claimed it was lili ledy but I dont know what he means by MIM so I never put that in the thread.
What would be the chance of getting a genuine ledy gun for this figure if I still bought it?

You can still find Ledy weapon's loose it just take's a long time to find em correct and someone willing to sell them seperate without a figure,that's the tuff part.

Ya the top gun has the wide grip and the botom one is the dark version i think our friend Mr.Biggs does'nt have either one of those but yeah either one of those one's will work as James showed.
I seen em loose on feebay before.

Is the staining normal then?
I know this is a contraversial thing to say but what is the value of a complete burgundy caped squid head? I only want to know as I dont want to pay to much.

yes. Value $250 +. That gun I say did come off a MIM (made in mexico card) - which doesn't mean it's LL just like the seller said.

Tell him you'll have to find a correct gun could cost $#30 US for one.Ledy weapon's are'nt cheap and not very easy to come by.It might take a while to find an correct gun meaning"long time"Tell him the arm's are blemmed with pink stain most likely not going to come off.If you send it to AFA to be authenticated it might score 80 tell em that.

Perhaps best not to talk $$ so publically Wink The price is fair, or you take your chances on ebay & end up buying 2 at $150 each and still not have a 100% genuine one.

I was worried about discussing the price etc for that reason. I trust the guy completly but needed to touch on the subject to avoid any mishaps.

I believe I have my answer now. I will wait for him to come back to me and see where it goes from there. Im concerned about the staining but the gun isnt such a worry.

Thanks for all your thoughts etc

It's your call Mr.Bigg's Ledy prices have sky rocketted.
I know i like to buy my Ledy's complete with correct acsesories less to worry about later.
I know the feeling your having you want that Ledy bad because it's available but not perfect or complete but you have the fever,i know it well.
I've been trying to control my fever or else i'd buy every dam thing.
Just my word of advice.

Gun is definetely not LL, to me the skirt looks too white, but maybe it is just the pic. LL skirts are a little darker and don't have the "ribbed" pattern. What do you guys think?

How hard to come by are red caped squid heads?

Is it worth me buying one or should I go for the burgundy caped BIB as I have chance of a genuine one of these too Shocked
Appart from stating the obvious about the BIB been much more money what do people think?

If I were you I would go for the Bib Fortuna w/burgundy cape, especially if you are 100% sure that it is legit.

Hi Andy, Wolff is right, there is no such a thing as a MIM gun, as i never said it was LL gun i should just called as it is: a kenner gun Smile
About the stains on arms, this helps me to identify an original LL red/brown cape squid, same thing with the skirt, theres no problem with the belt as this one has 2 small L's on it, gun also is different, if a LL squid has this stains on arms and skirt it doesnt looks good i know, but it helps me to identify it as an original as it takes years for the cape to stain the figure and the skirt.
