No COO Nien Nunb Empty
PostSubject: No COO Nien Nunb   No COO Nien Nunb I_icon_minitimeThu Aug 09, 2012 11:14 am

Hi all,

I need some help on No-COO-figures, especially on Nien Nunb no COO #4 in Wolff's Guide.


Over the years I've learned a few things about No-COO-figures:

A "no COO scar" often indicates that a figure is a PBP or Trilogo/European variant (like Luke X-Wing-Pilot #5 and #6 or the AT-AT-Commander #7).

"Melted down COOs" can also be found on Trilogo/European variants.

Some No-COO-figures seem to be comparatively rare.

There are some No-COO-figures which were only found in France on Meccano Cards but were not produced there (like the Rebel Soldier #6).

But there are a lot of question marks left ... unsure


Maybe someone can help me with Nien Nunb #4. The other No-COO-Nien-Nunb (#5) can be found quite frequently but #4 not (at least I do not see him very often).

No COO Nien Nunb Nien_n11

What is known about this variant? Is he a so called Meccano variant too? Suspect

Thanks for your help!
Patrick

Hi mate

Well, until Wolff chimes in i can give you another opinion...

#4 indeed is the hardest of the no coo's to find (he was the last one on my Nunb list)
Mine came from Germany and, i have seen at least another 2 there so there could be
a general mills(GM)/palitoy connection there similar to one or two other figures. He is
one of those figures that often has discoloured limbs like the dark belt HK Fett.

Hope this helps a bit..

Cheers, Lee

Hi Lee,

thanks for this info. That's interesting because I found mine in France and I thought that
this could be a hint of being a meccano variant.

Cheers, Patrick

Hey Patrick,
It took me forever to find Nien Numb #4 as well. I just recently acquired mine from a US seller on eBay (???). Not sure what to think of that, but I am glad the hunt is over!

Interesting thread.

Patrick: how about changing the title to "no COO Nien Nunb"?

In this way the thread can be found easily, when members are searching for info on this Nien Nunb figure.

Hi Marco, you are right, that's a more appropriate title and I have changed it
already. When I originally posted this thread I thought other no coo figures
could be discussed here too. But maybe it's better to have an own thread for
each "interesting" no coo figure.

Thank you Patrick. + on your way. Very Happy

Better to have separate threads with questions about specific no COO figures indeed.

Once there are quite a few, we could make a master thread linking to all of them.
