Hi!

This is not a common question about legit or unlegit variants. I just want to know if anyone knows of:

1) Wicket with different colour of the limbs that is not a "no COO" (i.e. a Taiwan figure)
2) Wicket green limbs that is not a Lili Ledy

Whether these differences are intended, unintended or just degradation by age or anything else is beside the point at this moment.

Wicket is in my opinion an underestimated figure. The character plays a prominent part in the movies, is nicely tranferred into a toy, chubby cute and, I think, tied the smallest (without the hood he's the exact same size as Yoda. Jawas are clearly taller).

The pictures could have been better but I think they get the job done. From left to right:

No COO Lily Ledy – Green limbs and shiny dark torso/face
No COO Kenner – Lighter brown limbs (greyer than the Taiwan, more brown than the green LL) and shiny dark torso/face
Taiwan – Somewhat lighter brown, evenly coloured and less shiny. I have three of these and they all look alike. Thus my question.

When counting size with yoda and wicket do you count volume like all around? because wicket is pretty round Razz just kidding, I don't know of any of these so can't help you. Hope you got a ledy Smile

Yeah, Yoda's soup isn't on any known weight gain-menus. But perhaps his original dance style is the real secret behind the heroin chic appearance: yoda

The figure on the (EDIT:) left match the LL criteria. His eyes are definitely more grey (perhaps easier to spot IRL than in this picture). I also got a LL hood to match.

And Rawlin, even if you couldn't contribute you at least kept an old man company a 2 a.m.
