I recently bought an INT-4 Bi Logo and got me wondering whether there is any way to tell if the mini rig inside is actually from mainland Europe.

With the sale of lone SW boxes I'm sure there are thousands of unoriginal rigs put inside bought boxes. If all mini rigs were made identical from one location then it makes the process feel a little more genuine.

Saying that it does have a UK price tag on it, although I find them fairly uncommon to find on UK Ebay.

Mine (the one in the photo) is sealed, so i'm afraid I can't help you with your question. Good luck in your quest though. I'd be interested in the results.

Check the copyright markings ( on the wing from memory ) Macao seems more US released, UK/Europe is usually no CoO.

I've got an Int 4 focus but I've never really looked at COOs before. Like Emiel my bi logo one is sealed - the bi logo sealed int 4 is very common, and I sold my open example a while back so can't check.

What I can tell you is the six other Int 4's I have are all made in Macau - I'm guessing the ledy is as there is a made in Mexico sticker over the Coo.

The other five are ESB Palitoy, Kenner, Kenner rebate, Kenner Canadian and ROTJ Kenner, all have made in Macau written in the cockpit.

If there is a no Coo it's a safe bet that it is a bi-logo, but I'm going on AJs knowledge there, as cant say for sure that I've seen a no Coo.

Worth bearing in mind that as my other example are open the ships could have been switched but the as all have inserts, sticker sheets etc it seems unlikely.

Hope that helps

Embarassed  memory failed me, I was thinking endor forest ranger. I've been meaning to research mini-rigs in more detail. 'Most' others have a copyright variation.

in that case I'd assume that they are all made in Macau unless anyone has a no COO example?

I can confirm that the Lili Ledy version of the INT-4 was made from the Made in Macao steel mould too.

You can still see the sticker residue from the Lili Ledy stickers.

My own boxed has the same Macau Coo as shown in the pictures above. Anyone have an example without a Macau Coo.
