I'm not very familiar with the molded legs Han Hoth Variation, but looking at a recent purchase, I thought I might have one. Here's a pic. Can anyone confirm it? I figured since the blue is obviously oversprayed into the tan, that would mean that the legs were molded in tan plastic, and the blue painted over, correct?

It's a 31-a card back. Made in Honk Kong. Here's pics of the front and back of the card.

Having just picked up a Molded Leg Hoth Han myself, I think you might have a normal painted one. There seems to be a couple of chips on the legs (despite MOC). Also, my molded leg Han has a very bright, solid and consistent yellow-tan color. Yours appears to have the paint.

Yep, looks painted- detail is not very fine & belt buckle doesn't look six sided ( there is another six sided painted leg)

Cool, thanks for the info guys! Is there good reference for this I can bookmark? I looked and couldn't seem to find anything. I'de really like to see more about the buckle. That seems like an easy way to tell in the future.

also, if you can see up the peg holes, they are clearly tan inside the molded legs, but usually a darker colour inside the painted legs...

From colour alone the tan legs are almost fleshy, kinda light sandy brown with a hint of pink if you get me? They also look slightly more glossy from a distance.
