PostSubject: variations   variations I_icon_minitimeMon Apr 05, 2010 3:16 pm

untill i joined here and wandered round the forum i had no idea there where differences in the figures.
some are weapons and others capes and some in the figures them selves
brown blonde orange hair for example

without how long is a piece of string just wondered how many different variations are there for each figure? or does it vary from one to another?

It really can vary quite dramatically depending on what you deem a variant.

As far as different coo variations go, Vader appears to have the most (probably 20 plus out there)

Luke farmboy has around 10 different hair colours if you include all the shades of yellow/brown/orange

You could get around 15-20 plus squidheads with different cape/colour/texture

Then there are figures with only 2-3 known variations

These are all examples, you can go on and on...

variant collecting can be very rewarding and sometimes a real headf**k as well Smile

lol , if you are thinking off going down the variation route , i suggest you start with the coo's , and work your way up from there , because when you think you have a fig with color difference , i might aswell be sun damage ,

good luck and have fun , i know i have lots off fun with my side focus , wich is variation collecting

ive just updated my limelight and had a look at the figures, untill mentioned above i'd not took much notice . i have a few with no coo , most from hong kong, couple from china and a couple from taiwan variations Icon_smile


one ive bought is a luke (farm boy ) from china with " raised bar?" ive had a look at it and tried to compare to pictures here and in landos locker but cant see what this raised bar is

Any way ive got few more coming next week and from what ive seen may be getting couple of variations, coo mainly but at least oine with different coloured weapon and another with different coloured legs

Good luck on variation hunting buddy. My advice would be to collect the major variants 1st before going into coo variants.

1. orange/brown snake yoda
2. brown/blonde luke farmboy
3. brown/blonde luke bespin
4. Luke Jedi blue/green saber
5. Han large/small head (you got that one)
6. Tusken raider solid/hollow cheek tubes
7. Biker scout large/small mouth
8. jawa cloth/vinyl cape
9. white bespin guard mustache variants
10. Leia Hoth red/brown hair
11. Leia Bespin turtleneck/no turtleneck
12. Ben Kenobi white/grey hair
13. Chewy green/blue crossbow
14. Boba Fett dark/light(trilogo) color
15. Snaggletooth red/blue
16. Snowtrooper split/solid visor(eyes)

And I would put DTS luke,vader, and ben in there, but only a few have the funds for for Vader and Ben

Those would be my major variants, but everyone has their opinion.

at the moment im just picking up "cheapies" , well with a couple of exceptions that are due this coming week variations Icon_smile

the couple of variations ive got apart from the han head have been just lucky,

ideally i would like one of each but i know some are out of reach for the time being, vinyl jawa for one,

il see how it goes just bit sick aint got proper place to display everything so its all packed away when ive taken couple of pictures
