I have to correct myself on this. The Vlix probably is a direct cast of a Glasslite and the others are probably casts from casts (those have to many rough edges to be direct casts). I doubt the Screed head is a cast, the quality is not that good.

Is it possible they're all cast by the same maker?

The reason I ask is that the finish, material and dowels are common between the four figures.

I've also did some digging around on paypal and found the person I brought them off, i'll pm you his name, maybe you'll recognise him?

That is possible, esp. if the material all seems alike and you bought it from the same person. But then they are probably all casts from casts.

I'd agree about the recasts of casts 100%

I sold the droids customs 2 days ago on another forum Sad , hopefully they bring the new owner some joy.

This does however mean I have some empty space to fill in my cupboard* and some money to spend cheers

*I know i'm well overdue a limelight (sorry guys!), however i'm in the process of planning some house renovations, after which I'm planning a new "custom" display. At the moment i'm thinking of keeping them grouped by manufacturer i.e. Kenner / Glasslite etc....

Only time will tell Smile
