Hello,

went to a new vintage toys store in paris, and found few figs variant.

first is a ackbar taiwan. I thought it was the grey variantion I saw before on the web. it turns out to be discoloration Mad so here is first question: is there a grey variant? does anyone has a picture?

you can see under the arm or the but that there is still white part Crying or Very sad just yelowing

the other is a vader with strange paint application, no coo scar, no letter on the saber and round end, and strange leather cape. is it the "clipper" variant?

Hey Nicholas,

Ackbar does look to be discoloration bud. I could be wrong, but I believe the Taiwan variant has a warmer, yelowish green tone, the Ledy and HK are more grey in colour.

Your PBP coo VI.2a with 'H' remaining Vader, has the correct accessories and yes, this variant can be found in Clipper mail away baggies.

these are Maikel's pics from the Vader 'Figure of the  week thread':

thanks Chris for the detailled information! Very Happy

On the other hand, About Ackbar, I received a picture from another collector (jejestar) with 3 differents taiwan with different colors. Acording to him, my Ackbar is a grey variant who has also yellowed on the side. here is the picture:

That's a great pic Nicholas, I didn't realise that there were different TW colour variants, I thought the colour variation came with the different coo variation. That's good to know, and I'm glad you got the answers you were looking for Smile

edit: buggger should have checked here too Rolling Eyes
