Ok, I have two Bibs with exact same coo, but look very different. Am wondering if it's an odd case of discolouration, but seems too precise.

One on the left has the usual beige colour armbands and fingers, but right one has grey. 
The heads appear different too, as the righthand has a kind of dirty marble look to it. Also has a lot less lipstick, but this could be play wear.
While the legs on the left are matt, the legs on the right are glossy and shiny.

Any of you coo, mould experts shed any light?

Hey Andrew

The one on the right in your pictures, looks like a Lily Ledy.  It looks like it has the pink eye and lip colour as well as the darker body and limbs.

Hopefully some of the others will chime in with their thoughts. Very Happy

Looks like a Ledy Bib to me too!

You got it from a Mexican source, Andy?

Clints link's a great help and sure is Ledy with the exact same coo as those in the link. 

It came in a pile of beaters I bought from within the UK. I thought it's head was just discoloured so put it in my customs box, but noticed the different coloured arm bands the next time I picked it up.

I can't remember if i stripped him of his cloak and belt, which may also have been original.  Neutral 
Will have to have a close look at his accessories on the link and see if they're in my spare accessories box.

I did notice when comparing my Bib cloaks, that one had a bright green interior cloak while another was quite dull. Fingers crossed I can find his original stuff if It stands out differently from the Kenner etc.

Looks like he's the top one out of this lot so could have been already stripped, but cannot fully remember as was bought a while ago.

There is info on TIG discussing the presence of Ledy Bib baggies in the UK. Impossible to loom it up from phone.

That is the thread I was looking for discussing the possible Woolworth link.

Thanks Stef! Very Happy

I haven't previously gone public with this, but I firmly believe that this figure was available in the UK. My reasoning for this is that when I discussed the possibility with someone in 2012, I had already purchased 3 Ledy Bibs from ebay UK for under £5.00 each & saw a couple of others (all within a few months). None of them were advertised as Ledy or sold by dealers.
With so many people selling Ledy, & Kenner figures sharing the same coo (incorrectly described as Ledy) on ebay, I find it hard to accept that this distinctive figure would have changed hands on the international secondary market & gone unidentified. The idea that overstock (from various sources) was sold in the UK via Woolworths multipacks seems the most likely explanation IMO.
