Hi All,

First post in a while. Will be back full force in a few weeks time (Have a few other really time consuming commitments have to get sorted first)

Hopefully one of you clever and knowledgeable chaps can help me with this?

I think it's a Tri-Logo or PBP variant?

Was wondering if anyone can confirm/deny?

Thanks in Advance,

Also, while I'm here. I was wondering about the no C.O.O. Bossk.

Just wondering if anyone knew what variant he is? i.e. Kenner, Palitoy etc? (I know he's not particularly rare, but I only have the one with no C.O.O. so was curious.)

The Trilogo/PBP Walrusman is easy to identify in comparison with the regular one because he has darker blue limbs and a darker green head and hands. Here's a good example:

Yours kind of looks like it's Trilogo/PBP... but just put it next to a regular Walrusman and it will be easy to confirm when you compare the color difference of the blue arms and legs.

Hey Shabby,

Thanks for the reply.

He's definitely got darker blue limbs than the other WM in my collection.

I found a thread on SWFUK that seemed to confirm that the Dark Head/Limbs, White Tusks, '1' Scar mean that he was a PBP.

I'd like to sell him on but don't want to mislabel/misrepresent him. Do I list him as a PBP? A tri-Logo or a Tri/PBP?

Also any which blaster variant he should have? Or does it vary?

An approx value would help me too.

Really appreciate any and all help.

Thanks in advance and best wishes,

-J

I paid $21 for my PBP Walrusman just a few months ago on Ebay. I've seen others on there within the $15-30 range depending on condition.

Hey Shabby,

Ok cool - thanks for the info. I changed the asking price to £16, I thought that was about right based on what you're saying.

Best Wishes,

Hey James! How's it going?

I did see that thread; it was that, plus one on SWFUK that made me think this was the PBP variant. Jay's figure doesn't have the '1' so I was under the impression that it was also PBP but an even rarer variant? (Also, his appears to be in slightly better condition than mine anyway.)

In your opinion, am I right in thinking that this is the PBP variant and that £16 is a fair price?

Best Wishes,

I think your no coo Bossk is considered to be the Pal variant.

Hi rog.

This means released on Palitoy cards yes, do you know if he was relesed on other cards too?
I have this other Bossk and wondered what you make of him, the date stamp is on his left leg and has NO COO, he also has darker limbs. I've seen him described as Tri-Logo but wondered if you knew any other info/cards.

Hi, I've never really pinned down the exact origins or cards these Bossks come from, perhaps other variation collectors might be able to be more specific, but the 'story' goes that the Pal variant came on later ESB and some ROTJ Palitoy cards (possibly some Trilogo's?), then there was the variation much like your no coo figure (same mould) but marked Hong Kong (darker limbs, different plastic, cheaper looking?) that turned up just before your Bossk (the no coo Tri variant) who came on many ROTJ Palitoy cards and Trilogo's. I wouldn't be surprised if all 3 variations can be found on/in other cards & baggies in addition to those I've just mentioned.
