I need some help with LL Zuckuss Empty
PostSubject: I need some help with LL Zuckuss   I need some help with LL Zuckuss I_icon_minitimeSun Jan 27, 2013 4:19 pm

I'm in need of a little help identifying a few Zuckuss's. I came across these while looking for some other figures. I have read through the LL guide on Zuckuss a couple of times, but I'm just not sure if I can tell the differences? I think I can see the silver vs. the gray belt difference, and these all seem to have silver belt's. I'm also not sure where I picked them up from?

Cons - silver belts (I think)

Pros - lots of text showing in the scar, 3 of the 4 have the dents in the legs, correct circles on backs of legs

Unsure - eye & nose colour? I'm not sure if I can see the differences.

I'm starting to lose the good daylight here, so if more pictures are needed, it will have to wait till tomorrow. I'm going to also find my other COO variants for a better comparison. Maybe in the daylight, I will be able to better see the eye and nose colour difference.
Any thoughts from the Ledy experts would be most appreciated in the mean time.

Hi Clint,

The nose (deep vs bright red) and the belt (gray vs silver) are the only distinctive characteristics between Ledy and Kenner.

I think that all four figures are Kenner (China baggie).

Hope this helps.

What do others think?

I'm no expert, but unfortunately they all look like Kenner figures to me aswell Clint.

The Ledy Zuckuss can be difficult to ID when comparing a figure to photographs, but when you have a Ledy & Kenner figure in hand, the differences in nose, eye & belt colour are much clearer.

Marco and Steve, Thanks for your opinions. Very Happy

I found my other COO variants and my LL Zuckuss. I can definitely see the gray vs. silver belt difference and I think I see the eye and nose colour difference as well. I will post some pictures tomorrow when the natural light is better just to comfirm.
Thanks again, it may give me a 5th variant for the collection.

I have place one of the 4 in question on the far right.
In the daylight, I can now definitely see the gray belt, darker red nose & darker eye colour vs. the Kenner (China baggie)
Thanks guys for the help.
I should have just dug out the others in the first place. :I am stupid:

From the photos, the nose & belt on that one look good to me Clint (Hopefully Marco will agree). Very Happy
Now the challenge will be to see if you can identify the correct weapon. Wink (The difference in colour is VERY subtle, & easier to spot in good natural light).

Thanks Steve. Very Happy
I will have to identify the weapon that I have in the next couple of days when there is a free moment.
