Here is an interesting Chewbacca Bocaster I found yesterday. I didn't see it on the list so I thought I better repoert it here. It's thinner than most and kinda flat & squared off rather than rounded. It came from a collection that was stored since the 80's until "mom" cleaned house and gave it back to the "son" who turned around and sold it to a shop I frequent. Almost everything this kid had was from ROTJ and on so almost all figures are Raised Bars, China COOs, MIMs, and No COOs. He even had all the Droids & Ewoks figs and almost everything was dead mint as he seemed to have never played with them. The figs were stored for so long that the only figs that had any damage on them was from an ESB Red Tray Vinyl Case that transfered the Red onto the figs, more on that later over on RS.

Here's the Bocaster! (*Note the mold circle on the very back, top corner)

looks like an early example to me, if you hold it up to the light it will have a nice blueish aquamarine colour. I have one similar with my chewbacca.

Looks ok to me. Do you doubt that it is real?

There's no doubt in my mind that it's real. I'm just reporting it so it can be added to the guide.
