I got excited when i pulled this out of a tub of toys. A mix of vintage & modern star wars and transformers etc. A mint condition Fett for £1.  cheers   celebrate

How many figures have been replicated this accurately? But for the obvious Coo differences, it would have had me fooled.

Andy, the mail away exclusive from the 2010 Vintage Line.
 
The only other figures replicated this accurately on a genuinely official scale are the four from the 1995 POTF 4 pack, one of the first release of the modern line.

Thanks chaps. Was a bit of bummer when I realised, but bought it anyway for a £1. What made up for it is he also sold me a nice condition AT AT with some missing parts for £15.

Although there are other clear differences to the trained eye. I still wonder how many leg swaps have gone on with these figures.

One of the clear significant differences with these is that the original molds weren't used as they probablt don't exist any more, so these figures where made by making casts of the originals, it's difficult to tell without a real good look, but because of this fact, the re-issues are fractionally smaller in scale.

Those re-releases always surprise me when I see them. They are easy to forget about.

Those modern rocket-firing Fetts command OK money these days - if you got the long rocket with yours you could have sold it and at least bought a nice take-away if not quite planned your retirement. Smile
