The eye colour doesnt look right to me, should be a bright pale yellow, matt in appearance.

So it should be painted hands? not molded hands. I've just noticed some of my staffs have different sized mold circles & different positions as well :scratch:

The German site is incorrect for Ackbar, make sure the eyes are as described above and is a Hong Kong C.O.O.

I dont have a pic as i ended up with the wrong Ackbar myself, so need one too, anyone have his piccy available?

Just had a look through my photos and I haven't taken any of mine.

I'll get my figures down from the loft tomorrow and get some shots.

The LL Admiral Staff is thicker and has a matt / dull finish (not glossy shinny like kenners)
I'm pretty sure its pictured on www.imperialgunnery.com weapon reference site ill check
when I'm back on my laptop later this morning.

The german guide is wrong for this figure as well which highlights why doing the TIG LL
Guide is so important Smile

Sorry for the late reply and the quality of ths photos.

My Ledy is on the left.

The paint on the hands is darker, the head is not as glossy, the paint on his belt pouch is darker. The pupil to his eye is like a brown colour. I bought this figure a while back and I'm not sure on the source. I don't think the staff I have is Ledy, it looks justy like my regular kenner one.

Hope thie helps.

Well done Dan, he is one hard one to identify and find, ive browsed for hours looking for him but most peoples photos are face on which makes it hard to see those eyes.

Hard for me to tell James, look at the original size photo of mine - especially the eyes m8, i would say yours isnt a Ledy.

Ackbar really is a swine of a figure to identify from photos, you want a close up of the eyes like in my photo to be able to tell, and he MUST have the Hong Kong stamp as theres another that looks similar but isnt Hong Kong.
