Thanks again for the help.

Yea it looks reddish brown actually Chris. More brown than mine I think Lili Ledy rebel commander - Page 3 Rc_sta10 but still has the red in it. It is truly hard to tell for sure without holding it but your pictures are really clear. Your glasses and hood look perfect ledy. Excellent figure and great color example. I will have some good comparison shots by next week I will post right away. We can go into detail about the boots, face and logos. The mustache does appear to vary a little as we see from Chris's example.

No, I bought the RC already graded. No COA's for most of the Ledy's or it would be crazy expensive to get them cased/graded.

BTW - Congrats on the 90 LL Jawa! I saw your other post and think I know the one you bought. Very nice!

Yes his tache does look more red the more you zoom in, step back and it looks a darker colour.

Ah, that one looks identical to mine. Thanks for sharing. Hope you don't mind but I changed the white balance and exposure on your photo, can you let me know if this is an accurate representation of what yours looks like in person? I used the background to set the white balance and just bumped up the exposure a little:

Yes thats pretty close, the skin tone has lightened some tho.

I also have another one here thats Wolffs and its boots are slightly darker, the tache appears a little more red but you can see its not as neat a paint job as the other (red dotting on one side)

Edit
Ill have to ask him if i can use photos of it.

I can definitely see how these could be confused for brown since even holding mine in my hand it looks brown to me, but definitely reddish when viewing up close.

I have another somewhere ill have to locate him and see how close he is to these 2, the boots on Wolffs are definately darker and i noticed some detail on the back is painted where on this other it is not (the 2 black patches on his back has some unpainted parts on mine, on Wolffs theyre painted all black) - the plot thickens lol

Im just off to bed (in from nightshift), will get more photos up later ... oooh the suspence!!!

Ok here is my other Reb Commander (on the repro-card), now you can see the differences with these 2 straight away, boots, scarf colour, moustache red.

The 2 of mine were both bought from Mexico as was the 3rd for Wolff, are there variants of him or are the other 2 a totally different COO figure?

Yes I see the differences Rob. It still does appear that the Scarf and glasses are a shade of grey and not brown. Is that correct. The 2 shades of grey are a little different but I would not say brown on those. I do see the stache difference and even the symbols? Did you put him on the card Rob?

Under magnification the repro card one leans more to a brown than a grey, yeh i recarded this guy, it appears there are either 2 variants of him or the 2 i have are not Ledy which is more probable unless we find some carded or more AFA ones of them.

Yes Dan my images arent showing as my website is down, no worries. (fixed) Smile

Something else we need to consider too is the release of the Imperio Contraataca figures, as with R2D2 there will no doubt be some variants, some homework needed on this so i guess we cant just dismiss anything until we find out what this guy looked like, as with R2 - if he has differences he may be around but in smaller numbers. Get your detective heads on guys Smile

Homework will be needed on:

Rebel Commander
Luke Bespin
Han Bespin
Snowtrooper
Darth Vader
C3P0
R2D2
Chewbacca
Yoda
Leia Bespin

guys guys guys.....


dont get too much on
-sprayed bigger/smaller
- is more/less reddish
- is more/less grey


Its the f***ing Ledy company......One barrel of color was empty next one was used....They had no quality control.


For me all these RC are the same...no variants at all.

If you take 10 RC next to each other, 5 of them will slightly look different or have shlightly different colors!! Thats a little over the top IMO

Wolff, im not looking for variants with the RC, im trying to determine if the 2 i have are Ledy, they have differences to yours, the other guys are making sure theirs are Ledy.

Your quite content to say Robs 2 are Ledy? With the noticable differences being the tache colour, boot colour and scarf colour - my 2 differ to yours yet both mine are exactly the same, sure it can easily be new can of paint etc i know but these questions will arise again no doubt.

Ive also emailled Todd Chamberlain as according to SWCA he owns some original Imperio, have asked if he knows of any noticable differences with the Imperio releases and the LL makes.

I for one would LOVE a full loose set of the Imperio figures so we DO need to identify which they are amongst the loose

(just tying up loose ends Wink )

Yes Dan, it seems they were made in Spain for Ledy to do a test market with, there may be no differences with some, im not sure but we do need to ID which they are for the Ledy guide, i would imagine some may just be paint differences to possible COO / Date Stamp / Cape / Weapon differences etc etc.

I wonder if thats true......as far as I know no carded imperio survived only some cardbacks.

Second point is that there is 100% nothing changed for the mexican market to test it! That doesnt make no sense at all. they just took some spanish figures from the assembly line and packed them on the imperio cards...nothing more!!


If you want to identify your two RCs for sure make me some closeups (if possible sharp ones) from their faces!
