I had my suspicions about the two types of paint prior to assembly. But the ABS/PVC? Coming to think about it my COO Snaggletooth is more pliable than the NOCOO? And my NOCOO is a Deeper and more consistent red than His Brother. I looked at some postings and saw the same. It’s funny even in my own fairly small Collection there are so many variations of the same Figure? I noticed that my Luke Skywalker Farm-boy Figure- Made in China COO has a slight lip or bur in the Lightsaber Housing of His Arm that my NOCOO And HK COO do not have? Is this just faulty moulding or is this an addition that the Chinese installed to maintain the position of the Lightsaber? Actually I had better look at my Vader and Obi-Wan. I’m really beginning to get into these Variations and the Hypothesis behind them!
I guess that this really started with my Princess Leia in Hoth Outfit. Embossed Pocket/ Plain Pocket. But then that might be a big fib as it was R2 and 3P0 that truly kicked it all off! As kid I was always updating them as R2’s Decals would yellow through handling and I always yearned for a True Blue R2 that I have a couple of in the Collection anyway. But C3P-0 I always wanted one that was really, really Golden that’s why I have so many. But maybe what I’m trying to say is that they were obviously different whereas other Figures it is far more Subtle. The Imperial Biker Scout Has Different Embossed Details on His Helmet, Back Utility Belt as well as front tunic Details. The Imperial Stormtrooper in Hoth Battle-gear is the same. But then the Question is- how could so many Figures be produced and there not be Variations? It’s ironic that such was Production despite all the mutilations, sacrificial burnings, being ground into the concrete and launched into the stratosphere that numbers have survived to this Day and indeed this Year as it is this Year That Star Wars Figures are Actually 40 Years Old in their Traditional Genre!
Yes it is all Fascinating!
