PostSubject: re Luke Farmboy variants   re Luke Farmboy variants I_icon_minitimeTue Apr 03, 2012 6:14 am

Hi all its a while since I last posted and was only looking back on my original limelight yesterday and think 95% of what was on there then has now gone Sad but one door closes and another opens so its all good and look forward to updating it soon with whats current Very Happy

But I wonder if anyone can let me know what variants there are on Luke Farmboy that AFA for example would recognise when grading a loose figure as I have a couple but notice UK Graders only mention the hair and not the pants.
I dont really want to go off on a variant tangent but would be quite interested to see if I could put together a run of acknowledged different types (apologies if some of this has been mentioned in the FOTW thread).

So far I have
1) Brown Hair / Light pants
2) Blonde Hair / Dark pants
plus I have seen
3) Blonde Hair / Light pants
4) Brown Hair / Dark pants
5) Dark Brown Hair / Light pants
6) Orange Hair / ?? pants

Many thanks in anticipation
Tony

Welcome back Smile
I started a similar thread : https://www.imperialgunneryforum.com/t3935-loose-afa-ukg-descriptions
I still haven't 'joined'/registered on the AFA site. Perhaps that's the only way to get a definitive list?
I suspect if you ask UKG for a specific variant label they may consider it.
'Obvious' variants both UKG & AFA 'must' label would be the actual C.O.O. ie. HK, Taiwan, China ..... ??
DT would make the list too Wink

start a picture list:

Hi James
Thanks for that and after looking at that link I remember reading it and didnt put 2+2 together Mad !!
I have taken these pics of the labels (apologies for quality from my Blackberry !) and you can see that the UK graders label (DT Luke) has a bit more information than the AFA

re Luke Farmboy variants Img-2011
re Luke Farmboy variants Img-2012
perhaps I can ask AFA if they know or check on the database ?
cheers

Hmm bit worried about that no letter variant, I'm not good with dt, but I read very good info yesterday and it mentioned that there are no "no letter" variants.

Maybe oxidation like on the leias? Golden brown sounds a bit weird. I'll check my lukes when I get back home.

Well it was good info, actually very good info, but I'm far from good at dt's. If I get one I won't buy any without letters that's for sure.

Of what I've read, I wouldn't trust AFA with weapons and accessories.

I wonder if you have a COA from Tom Derby it helps but tend to agree with you ...... its a worry if that is the case with AFA Shocked
