Probably just a model number. It's also used in the bar code.

I have a complete list of codes in a small book.

I believe he's referring to the letters next to the POP.

my guess is it refers to the factory in Hong Kong...Were there multiple factories in Hong Kong... Or maybe different zones within one factory...

Craig is mentioning two different Hong Kong factories and their codes in his Luke Jedi limlight.

Who would like to link it here? (on my way to work right now).

These letters stand for the factory that produced them...

In example;

- Hong Kong "K" stands for "Kader Industries" of Hong Kong"

- Hong Kong "U" stands for "Unitoys" of Hong Kong"

- All the TJ and TC are from Taiwanee factories

..etc, etc,...

Hey John,

I simply made some extend researchs that confirmed that fact. These local toy manufacturers marked their production with the initial of the company.

It's as simple as it Very Happy
