Sorry for watermarking the images, I've seen my pics show up on google a lot so have started marking them.
I got a few variations(coo) that I would like to know more about, discolors or not. As always, any help is appreciated Smile

Went through my Lukes a bit and found this odd one. It's COO 1 in the guide. What beats me is that the yellowing on the chest have not yellowed the area below his neck and it's white instead of skin color.
Doesn't look like painted but it suggests that it is. Hands are very pale, face is pink. Weird ass discoloring or special boy?

Faded paint and yellowing in a funny combo.

Ackbar, looks a bit like ledy but it's not, brown eyes(camera refused to get the color right, it's dark brown color). Arms are very dark, no coo.
It's the one next to the blue dot in the pictures.

AT-AT Commander, left one is PBP, it's the right one I want to know about Smile

The Han Solo to the left is the one I wonder about, but all are interesting and if they are called anything special that would help.

No coo, scared Walrusman. I don't think it's dark enough to be PBP.
I just noticed that it got a bit larger head and is slightly darker then my other Walrusman.

No coo Deathstar Commander.

Jawa, probably custom painted. But would like a second opinion. Bandolier is almost black.
Edit: Custom Painted.

To me the Death Squad commander, walrusman, At-At commander are 'euro' versions.
It's easier for me if you 'label' the COO with the #(number) from the COO guide.
The no COO Ackbar (there are at least 2 different- #4 & #5) one more difficult to find.
The Han Hoths match any of these? : https://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t2018-variant-of-the-week-han-solo-hoth
I think the jawa is a custom.

Thanks for the reply.
Ackbar has a scar, and it looks like #4 in the COO guide.

I can not find the Death Squad Commander COO in the guide.

Walrusman have the PBP COO #3 in the guide, the small dots are there, but very hard to photo.

AT-AT Commander is COO #4

I read through the variant of the week han solo hoth a few times earlier but could not id it.
It seems to be COO #6 . it's a scar below text. Sorry for crappy pics.

Thanks for second opinion on the Jawa, I think it is custom too.

I'm looking at your Ackbar. Does the no coo area, on the top of the back right leg, have a little bit of a rough look. I'm not talking deep, or dug out but just a little rough. You should be able to see this at an angle in the light or is it completely smooth? If it does have the rough area I have one identical that is a Meccano. Wolff helped me identify it awhile back when I bought a lot from France. Hope this helps : )

Thanks Smile that would be cool Very Happy

I don't have any other Ackbar no coo to compare too, so I can't tell if it's smooth or rough, it looks a bit of both to me :S
I did manage to take a few pics of the scar under a magnifying glass.

To me it seems very similar to my Meccano.

Mixed with the colors to try and make the scar appear better. Does look a bit rough at the top.

Hi Rawlin, I have a no coo Ackbar which looks to be the same as yours. I was unable to get a clear photo, but when the figure is held on its side & slowly tilted in the light the coo scar appears to be very slighly raised, and running along the top & bottom edges there are some tiny raised marks which are the remnants of Hong Kong.

I think it is more similar to number #4 since the text is slightly bent and seems to be a bit further out from the center line. But I must say that one is hard to see,
I'm not sure how the scar on #4 looks because I can't see it. I can see though the there is no scar on #5 and that the text is much more centered.

The scar is visible but it's hard to see how it really look. I think this pic got most of it. I got trouble seeing how the scar really looks like since it's pretty shiny.
There seem to be a few dots on the right side.

Borrowing a pic for compare Smile

Seems like the outline on mine might be going in and the middle part is embossed. But I can't see the outline on the Meccano so it might not be the same.
Been checking it further and it does not look like the same scar.

If it helps, I believe mine is also coo #4. I still can't get a photo that shows the details I described :taz: , but here's one anyway.
