Hi All,

I'm sure the community is well aware of the recent figure reproductions by Smith Lord Creations.  I didn't see a guide up on TIG yet, and thought I would contribute some beginning photos / knowledge to help the community identify these new reproductions.  I've only ever owned 1 original Kenner Blue Snaggletooth and I'm using it for photo comparison.  I purchased my Kenner Blue Snaggletooth from the original owner, and the gun it's paired with is the one that the owner included as the original that came with the figure.  To the best of my knowledge this gun is an authentic Kenner.

In hand, and at a quick glance, SLC reproduction Blue Snaggletooth really feels like a Kenner action figure.  It has solid weight to it, the plastic appears like an original figure, and all 5 joints are articulated.  However, up close there are a few differences noted in the photos below.  The SLC Blue Snaggletooth I purchased, was a loose variant.  They are also being produced carded and I'm assuming the carded figure/weapon is identical to this loose sample.

Up close, the belt buckle of the reproduction has spaces that are a little bigger/wider than the original Kenner Figure. Also, the reproduction hands are just slightly bulkier than the original.
