So I bought this Luke on eBay, and when it showed up today I noticed that the part of his belt that is on his hips doesn't match the belt on the torso. The hips have a black belt, and the torso has brown. My first thought was that it was a poorly executed touch up, but looking closer it looks more like mixed up parts. The sonic weld doesn't look like it's been tampered with. I know I keep throwing random questions at you guys and I really appreciate the information. My pint offer still stands;) Any insight or opinions?

Interesting mix up. I read somewhere that no brown hairs were released with brown belts so it is interesting that the torso is the brown part as the boil pop method is very difficult with the peg neck that the luke has. Even if a boil and pop was used to do the limbs then they would have done the head also if that is correct information regarding the belt color for the brown hairs. More likely this was an early produced brown hair with the remaining torsos from earlier blond/yellow lukes. :scratch:

Thanks Brian! Stormie Smiley That makes a lot of sense.
This one definitely boggled my mind. I looked at some photos of others and it looks like maybe there are some others that have been photographed out there, but they seem a little more subtle (at least in the photos). It doesn't look like it's been boiled and popped to me either, of course I'm not entirely sure that I'm dupe-proof on that front.

Different batches for limbs & torso can happen.  I do not know about the whole brown hair, brown belt thing.  I'm thinking more along the lines of:
