I'd say:

- lighter grey beard - and hair
- pale blue instead of dark blue eyes
- glossy instead of matt black gloves and boots.
- glossy instead of matt blue sleeves - I'd call them also darker blue - the main and easiest to see difference imo
- a darker grey suit - no imo not

Uli

P.S. the brown V3 palace blaster was not used for any LL figure as far as I know. It came with the Kenner Made in Hong Kong Luke Jedi only

OK, many thanks for your help on the Madine differences, Uli.


Also good to know that the grey/brown V3 blaster was only released by Kenner and not by Lili Ledy.


BTW: Do you have a Emperor in your collection which has the exact same COO as a Ledy, but isn't Ledy. I haven't seen one yet.

I fear I can't help you here - my Emperor variant collection is quite small... I only have the 3 different Emperors.

RANCOR KEEPER
THE LILI LEDY GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD PART 1 - Page 6 Rancor10

COO guide for Rancor Keeper: No. 2 and 3 are shared by Kenner and Lili Ledy.

THE LILI LEDY GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD PART 1 - Page 6 Rancor15

Rancor Keeper: Lili Ledy on the right.
THE LILI LEDY GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD PART 1 - Page 6 Rancor16


DIFFERENCES:

  • According to the COO guide, the Lili Ledy Rancor Keeper has an unique COO#3. This is not true. Both COO #2 and #3 are shared by Kenner and Lili Ledy figures. Both COOs represent steelmoulds that were used in parallel.
  • Compared to his no COO brother, the Lili Ledy Rancor Keeper has:
    - a more pinkish/apricot skin
    - glossy instead of matt boots
    - glossy instead of matt wrist and elbow armour (I found that for all my LL Rancor Keepers see the comparison pic).


Comparison of wrist and elbow armour: Matt (no COO, figure on the left) vs Glossy (Ledy, all three figures on the right).
THE LILI LEDY GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD PART 1 - Page 6 Rancor17

ACCESSORIES:

  • The LL Rancor Keeper came with a hood which is very dark grey and made out of hard plastic. The hood is a shade darker in comparison to the no COO hood. The Ledy hood can have a "A" or "C" inside.

    Comparison of Rancor Keeper hoods.
    THE LILI LEDY GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD PART 1 - Page 6 Rancor18

  • The LL Rancor Keeper came with a dark grey staff (vibroblade) which is a shade darker compared to the no COO staff and much darker than the Taiwan staff.
  • Be aware not to buy a repro staff. At first glance you might think this repro staff seems OK cause it is darker than the Taiwan version. However keep in mind a true Ledy staff is much darker. Furthermore the repro staff has a blunt ended tip and sinks in water. Why do I tell you this? Cause I made the same mistake head bang and don't want you to make it too. Here is a comparison shot for your convenience:


Comparison of Rancor Keeper vibroblades.
THE LILI LEDY GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD PART 1 - Page 6 Rancor19

Comparison of Rancor Keeper hoods and vibroblades. Left: no COO (trilogo). Right: Lili Ledy.
A Nikto Ledy axe was added for comparison. As you can see, it is cast in the same dark grey plastic as Rancor Keeper's vibroblade.

Yep the Rancor Keeper info ties in with my figure also Marco, you are 100% correct Smile

Ledy Stormtrooper variant number 2 will be added to our Ledy guide sometime today by Chris, there is only 2 small differences on the datestamp area, thanks to Wolff for the image Smile

Zuckuss: Lili Ledy on the right
THE LILI LEDY GUIDE & DISCUSSION THREAD PART 1 - Page 6 IMG_3377

DIFFERENCES:
  • Both figures look nearly identical and have the typical LL traits (same COO, big circles behind the heels), except for the colour of the belt and the ´nose´ tip.
  • The LL Zuckuss has a dull silver instead of a shiny silver belt.
  • The LL Zuckuss has a darker red nose tip.
  • The LL Zuckuss is casted in a darker gray plastic.


What might be the origin of the left Zuckuss. China baggie? (James) Lili Ledy variation? (Ben). Both?



This week I saw this AFA graded Ledy Zuckuss offered for sale by sacko. This Zuckuss clearly has a shiny silver belt. I guess AFA knows what they are grading, at least that is what they are paid for. Very Happy

So this means that both the shiny silver and dull silver ('grey') belt versions can be Ledy?

Hey guys.

I actually have 3 AFA 85 graded zuckuss. I know this is a tough figure to identify.

So here is the layout of my 3

1. AFA 85 - Silver shiney belt, matte eyes and brighter red nose (For sale)
2. AFA 85 - Dull belt, Shiney eyes and a darker red nose (deep dark red)
3. AFA 85 - Dull belt, Shiney eyes and a darker red nose but not the same as 2 (lighter dark red)

They all seem to be the same body color but it is very difficult to tell. I had my wife look and she also had trouble seeing any difference in this area.

I really do believe that the figures varied and depending on the day figures could have appeared different. My guess is we could have Tom D take a look at the pics.

This is what made collecting ledy figures so very difficult and my attraction to both cut carded figures and U graded figures. With those 2 categories I know the ledy figure I have in my collection is legit. I do not agree with U grading in general so please understand the above statement and no attacks on poor sackman Smile.

The actual key may be in the eyes. Do we know of any ROTJ kenner carded Zukuss figures with shiney eyes?

Last thing with the pic above comparing the 2. I know Zuckuss appears to be darker when the figure has started to yellow. Not sure but the figure above looks like he may have yellowed a bit giving him a darker mold appearance.

Hope that helps guys

Jason

Hi Sacko, good to see your still around m8 Wink

Uli and i were having a similar conversation earlier about grading - considering were finding new information all the time - are they correctly grading figures and their proper accessories?

(Room there for a TIG grading category Wink )

I also thought the same about other Ledy figures when we were reviewing the AT-ST driver, we know Matt and Gloss paints were used and even a mixture of both which puts other figures into question that may have previously been discarded, the plot thickens Smile

I can really say - ive been missing this shit Wink

Thank god for threads like these. I just purchased a very large collection and just started going through them all. I am trying to pick out all the different variations. Its fun, but not fun at the same time. Especially when its over 800 figures.

I love this thread massive kudos to everybody involved Smile

Detective Rob great to see your fully back in the zone bro Smile Jason great to see you posting bro i hope your well Smile The more people that an chip in and pull together on projects like this the better cheers

Quick question Bill sent me -

""should the Lili Ledy Stormtrooper with filled in peg hole be added as a variant in the TIG Interactive and "Tough to Identify Lili Ledy" thread" ""

- I'm not a loose expert so i leave this question in your good hands.

Bill also raised the possibility of making this thread a sticky im more than happy to do that if people feel its worth it.

Cheers Jay

The Stormtrooper should only be added as a variant if his Datestamp differs to Variant 1+2's Datestamp in my opinion, Ledy are well known for poor quality control.
What do you guys think?

Yes i would make this a sticky Jay, its going to be used a lot and is an important thread Smile

If you make it a sticky maybe create a section for "vintage star wars guides" Javis potential PBP guide in there - Shawns mailer guide, Marcos thread etc - I think we all miss stuff in the reference section.

BTW- if the ledy guide is back up and running - why not put a link to this thread on the guide page- ?

Right now the thread gets bumped up often but for me it is one of the the most important collecting resources going and seems much more than a thread.

When I first saw a filled in peghole Ledy Stormtrooper I thought it was just a one time error figure but there seems to be a few them out there. Also is it always the right leg peg hole filled?

Joe, once the "homework" is done these threads will be moved back to the reference section assuming we are happy with the guide Smile

We also have quite a few Ledy threads that started and ended so that would be a few links to add not just this one, but no worries with a link from the guide to here if it helps people, but a sticky might just suffice? Comments/Ideas?

Bill - is your Stormy a V1 or V2? or other? I (personally) think the "filled" Pegholes were due to them removing figures too quick from the moulds or the moulds became badly worn and more would appear like this, or they didnt clean it regular, anyone else have an opinion on this?

I have 8 Ledy Stormtroopers, 3 of which have the filled in peghole and all 3 are the V1 mould and all are the right foot. Ill get some closeups of the Datestamps and see if they are indeed the same
Smile

OK update for you all - I have Variant 1 and Variant 2 Stormies, the filled in peghole on the right foot is evident on both variants, there is no Datestamp difference other than the Variant 1 and 2 differences so filled in foot is poor quality control and not another variant.

I have not received the figure yet to see if it is 1 or 2.

Even if that is true about the molds, I would consider that to be a variant. Sort of like the Blue Snaggletooth dent and no-dent toe.

I think it was Ledy's poor quality control bringing us items like:
  • The removable rocket Boba Fett
  • Wrongly welded Jawas
  • Stormtroopers and Bens with filled pegholes
  • Matt/glossy black boots, belts, and eye patches for the same figure (Madine, AT-ST driver, Biker Scout, Prune Face)
  • .....


The border between true Ledy variation and factory error is very vague here. But who cares it is all Ledy. Very Happy

Once I make a Stromtrooper entry in this thread, I will add some pics of my Strormie having his right peg hole filled.

As Rob mentioned, it might well be that Lili Ledy took the figures and weapons too early out of their molding after casting sometimes. Because the plastic was not hardened enough it was deformed because of the used physical force. LL's Quality control was poor so that's how we could have ended up with Yoda COOs with warped "C"s, filled pegholes, and (as it seems from a current discussion within the dev team), nippled comm links

@Dr Dengar wrote:

- Andy: Might the warped ©️ be an artifact during removing the freshly cast figure from the molding? Why would the factory carve a deformed C in a molding? I have a Ledy Yoda and Gamorrean Guard with a similar deformed ©️ (see the pics below).

Ok guys, back to the topic now, let's further discuss Zuckuss:

  • Who likes to contact Tom D to ask him how he thinks about the silver and grey belt versions and how they relate to Ledy.
  • Who can post a clear pic of a Made in China Zuckuss baggie. I am very curious how this figure looks like. Exactly like the 'silver belt' 'Zuckuss as shown in the pics above or differently. Del?
  • Can we exclude that the grey belt is a discolored silver belt, in which the silver pigments have been oxidized to darker pigments?
  • I have found a few pics of Ledy MOCs, see below. Difficult to say: grey or silver belt? I would say both MOCs have a grey belt Zuckuss. Who can post pics of other Ledy MOCs? Some Mexican input would be much welcomed here!
