Hi guys,

I am looking for some help trying to identify the correct face paint for a Top Toys Luke Jedi. I now have two (when it rains it pours for me) and I want to sell my spare, but I suspect one has been touched up on the face. Check out the photo below:

Does anyone have any close-ups of a carded example or even a loose one from a good source? Thanks in advance for the help!

the one on the right looks definatley overpainted!

Sergio has a moc...its unplayed...that wont help much


normally TT Lukes have red eyes! I have one played with...Ill check!


IMPORTANT:

Yoda as Luke always have a mixture of colors in face! They have thin layers of colors on top...these can be washed of with only water! SO BE VERY CAREFULL!!!

I NEARLY DESTROYED MY YODAs FACE!!!!!!

Unplayed ones cannot look like played ones because of that reason!

Wow Wolff I didn't know that thanks for sharing. Are all TT figures painted with water based paint or just Luke and Vader?

Thanks, Wolff and Craig! The one on the left came from a guy from Argentina that was at CV. I was very lucky on this one! It was also helpful finding this other legit example to confirm previous capes were also legit.

Catch you over on email, Wolff.. : )

I think AFA did an amazing job on the case since the belt is broken.
