Using the COO guide I'd say this is variant #5. Mine might be in better shape than the #5 pictured but I just wanted to get a couple of other people's eyes to take a look and give me a thumbs up Very Happy I like having my ducks in a row, in this case my Chewbacca's.

It's important for me to try to become better informed by you so I may someday better inform other's so Thank you in advance.

Hi mate

Yours is actually coo #6 which is very similar to coo #5. Both are from the same moulding
family but there are some tiny differences in some of the coo spacing.

I used to think that this coo was a mec variant as they can be found in France but i have also
found these in the UK and Germany so EURO no coo variant is my personal opinion on this figure
and on most chewie no coo's.

Chewbacca coo's like vader can be a bit of a headfuck at times Wink

Hope this helps.

I have that same chewie and by the looks of yours it seems to have one leg longer than the other. I was told it came from a Tri-Logo.

Hay June I think every figure that has no COO gets sold as a Tri-logo variant and in my experience are 90% wrong. This Chewbacca is made in Macau and found on Palitoy and Meccano? cards, also in Macau baggie.

Thanks for the info @Snaggletooth. And I think I messed up head bang upon further inspection the no coo chewie I have is #13 on Wolfs Guide. Shares the same coo with Ledy. And as far as no coo figs coming from Tri-Logos what about the light blue Boba Fett (Painted & un-painted knee) that's labeled as Tri-logo by almost everyone.

Here is the coo on my chewie.

You're right, people do usually refer to the light blue Fett as a Tri-logo Fett, but it's also found on earlier Palitoy & Meccano ROTJ cardbacks, so it is not exclussive to Tri-logo cards.

Palitoy light blue fett with unpainted knee.

I'm happy to help (+ on the way). I think I'm correct in saying the pale blue fett also appeared on the German GM ROTJ cards. IMO it may be more accurate to describe the this Fett as a European variant, rather than a Tri-logo.

Unfortunately the moc illustrated is not mine. My example has a semi detached bubble, due to a weak seal.

No problem June, I can't help you with that one either sorry mate, most of the Tri-logo variants I've seen are the same figures found on Palitoy ROTJ cards and some are even ESB, some also appear on Meccano ROTJ cards, maybe PBP to? Tri-logo's where used to pack overstock by all 3 of those companies to so I think anything is possible when it comes to those and at that time Palitoy where getting no COO figures from HK, PBP and Macau factories and they must have had the biggest percentage of the Tri-logo market.

Has anyone got a picture of a "Tri-Logo" Boba Fett with painted wrist dart on anything other than a Tri-Logo card?

Hi flycasual. It may be more beneficial for you to start a thread and ask this question directly. That way many more people may see your direct question in the postings unsure -Cheers
