Hi Guys I just went thru my old man - Obi wans I have 3 different heads on an obi with the Ledy noted mark
tight, ©GMFGI1977 high up leg.
#6•LL” ©GMFGI1977” no space between © and GMFGI and 1977.upper leg type clean straight line condensed , different heads found . include following
#6A whiteish pale face ore transparent face med grey hair PBP?
#6B thinner head has a different head sculpt dark grey hair - brownish body plastic LEDY??
#6C pinkish solid face med grey hair, heavy cape PBP??


I am also curious if anyone could tell me what OBI would have the DT saber , as I have yet to see one in person
Im guessing it is the HONG KONG mark-
any help? ill post photos of the 3 later today I need my camera battery to recharge
best

So all 3 have the same COO? The middle one does look like my Ledy.

DIFFERENCES:
Compared to his Kenner counterpart (here COO no. 4), the Ledy Ben Kenobi has:
- darker grey hair, eye brows, moustache, and beard. In addition the eye brows, moustache and beard are thicker.
- an index finger (right hand) which extends over the edge of the light saber holder (look carefully at the pics to see this).
- thicker shoe soles
- a left foot which extends longer from underneath the 'cloak' (pants)
- a more pinkish skin colour
- an unique COO (no. 7)

ACCESSORIES
  • The Ledy Ben came with a vinyl cape which differs from a Kenner cape in the following ways:
    - lighter brown colour
    - 'smooth' feeling as it is made from more flexible vinyl
    - absence of the typical 'zipping' sound when you scrape your finger against any side of the cape.
    - arm holes are positioned a bit lower

Interesting stuff!

To my knowledge there is no diffrence between a Ledy and PBP Ben.
Ledy is known for the many small paint variations within one figure line, so maybe we are looking at three different Ledy/PBP variants? Though a white beard (like your Ben on the right) seems a bit odd for Ledy.

Do all three figures have the same mould as the Ledy figure? From your pic I can see clearly that all three Bens have thicker shoe soles. How about the extended index finger, left foot?

And how about the material of the cape, and the exact positioning of the arm holes compared to a Kenner cape?

all three have the exact same LEdy mold mark.
as stated
all three have the extended figure.
so one is a Ledy and 2 are PBP is my guess. ? or
I am aware of the details on what a LEDY is
what are the other 2.?

distinguishing shows and capes cannot only be a signature of a ledy - because i have a hong Kong fig that fits that bill as well
as well as as having the extended figure.

I am not sure whether I understand it correctly.

Do you have a Ben with a Hong Kong COO, having the same mould (thicker soles etc) and cape as the Ledy figure ?

I have a MIHK- with the upper ©GMFGI 1977 line extended, this has the similar finger extended beyond the saber ,and the taller terraced boots .
so either this is also a LEDY? or the finger / boots are not indicative to Ledy only. I know this is a hard to find MIHK mark here in the US, as I have only found one in 40. compared to the more common MIHK figure.
hope that sorts it out
as for capes- i'm sorting out what is for what yet- as capes can easily be switched swapped etc...
although I do have a no coo with a very thick heavy cape. i cant find info on that either.
Does anyone have a NO COO with white hair are they common or harder to find and what mark is it. ??
best to all
