to many questions at once mate!!! Laughing

Hards torso is called so, because the material is different to other use materials. All hard torsos are sharper deatiled. The white hard tosros figures normally look like painted white.
Hard torsos were produced in the later production. Lots of firms produced hard torso figures:
1. LILI LEDY
2. PBP

and lots of TRILOGO and PALITOY figures as well.

I think the europeans used this material, because it doesnt yellow so easy as the normal material...but thats just a theorie. Ledy seemed to use a different chemical material...they seem to yellow more easy.....though.

The Hardtorso figures smell more vinatge...if you know what I mean.

(and BTW: there is also hard limbs figures as well.....these normally go with hard torso figs.....but not every hard torso figures has hard limbs Wink )

hope this helps.

WOlff

Hi Guys,

Whilst trying to repair my bi-logo Y wing box,i noticed that it has a black sticker that says Made in Mexico/Fabrique au Mexique on the side!

Does this have anything to do with Lili Ledy? :scratch:

Cheers,

Mark.

Hey Mark! Did anyone PM an answer to your question mate? I was going through my boxed stuff back home a couple of weeks back and I noticed my Tri-logo boxed rancor has a similar sticker. I forgot all about it until reading your post just now.

I think that's correct Mark. There are quite a few Kenner MIM (Made In Mexico) MOC's. I think they are all 65bks. But I think the consensus is that all Kenner MIM MOC's are in fact Ledy.

As for the Y-Wing question... I'm not really sure. Wink I have an Endor Forest Ranger that says Made in Spain, but so far I can't find any evidence that it's a PBP or anything like that.

Hopefully someone can chime in with a better answer! Smile

Hey Dan!

See above mate! Me and Mark have Tri/Bi-Logo boxes with a small black sticker saying made in Mexico.

We were wandering if these are Lili-Ledy and were fully assembled/packed in Mexico. If any one can explain anything about them that would be great!

Just a point but I think that applies to the figures only. You can buy a MIM figure with a "kenner" weapon. Biker Scout is an example. There are 65 back short mouth biker scouts with both the light grey (Kenner) and Dark "lettered" Grey (LL) weapons.

I just posted a pic in Latest Vintage Purchases thread of my Jawa loose figure - I'm curious about his blaster, at first it appears to be the V2 solid dark blue with no raised bump. But held up against the light the magazine and end of butt are translucent like the V1 version but the V1 has a raised bump and mine doesn't. Any thoughts? Does the V2 blaster have parts on it that are translucent? Cheers guys Smile

it is the solid blue one for me. All wepaons are a little bit translucent on their thinner parts. The "true" translucent once are translucent all over Smile

Anyway a nice find...I also have two for my Vinyl caped Jawas Wink

Thanks Dan and Wolff, yes it makes sense now that thinner parts of a weapon would be translucent.
