Hi Daniel.

I guess a Ledy Boushh helmet with an "E" also exists. But letters are no unique traits for Ledy helmets as Kenner helmets can have letters as well. The reason is that Lili Ledy and Kenner used the same moulds (Hong Kong type) for their helmets. Better look at the colour of the plastic and the paint on top.

If you can confirm a Ledy helmet with an "E" inside, I will update this in the Ledy thread.


The Ledy Boushh helmet has the same mould as Kenner's Hong Kong helmet. The Ledy helmet is cast in a bit duller orange plastic compared to the Kenner helmets. In addition the grey paint on top is a bit more silver like. The Ledy helmets have little letters inside. ´F´, ´G´ or ´H´ have been confirmed for Ledy sofar.
REMARK: Also Kenner Hong Kong helmets have letters inside ('B', 'C', 'F', ...), so this is not a distinctive Ledy trait!!

Did you win it? I was concerned that there were no pictures of her face- IMO the key to LL is the face plastic. The same seller also has never seen a 3 line C3PO so I now doubt their knowledge.
edit: I have had a couple of chats to the seller & he seems a decent fella ( & a lurking member Wink )

James,

I bid on it but low for damage limitation, I asked for clarification on Ledy points and got no reply, may have been a genuine reason but that made me think I didnt want it........It went for £21, which isnt a fortune but its alot for a Kenner Leia!
