I’m hoping there is someone that knows info that isn’t normally explained or talked about to help me learn either the uncommon information or can point to more than Variant Villain. I know it’s full of great knowledge but it can’t and doesn’t have all the information out there. I know how terrible their records were and have burned up everything I can find with general knowledge and definitely can’t find anything about my specific questions. I’m really interested in their connection to L.F.L. and expanding to their interaction with the American KENNER figures through L.F.L. because the listed and easy to find info doesn’t talk about what appears to be an obvious link and it doesn’t take an expert to see it. If anyone knows or can point me in the right direction I would be extremely appreciative. Also, does anyone have any leads on finding the 2 kinds of LL Bespin Leias that might be available? Thanks everyone for being patient with me as a novice collector compared to almost everybody else on here. The very few people who have tried to help me have been more than wonderful to learn from and discuss things with.

In the very beginning ledy produced their own figures strictly for the South American market, by the end ledy was producing figures for the north American market but carding them on cards that said "made in mexico". There is some debate on the earliest line about whether they made their own figures or not but an interview with an ex employee suggest they made everything for those early imperio contractaca figures in house. Ledy used molds from other factories that were sent to them to produce their items, hence both Kenner and ledy figures share coo markings in most instances.

Let me  correct/ add some of the good  information that Bryan gave you...

There is no debate on the earliest line  (Imperio Contraataca ) about been  made in Mexico , more than 10  interviews with  ex employees and the last LL CEO  states that  they made everything in the house , nobody even mentions anything been imported. Ledy used molds from other factories to copy them and then produce their items, that is why both Kenner and ledy figures share coo markings in most instances but the figures differs from each other in some unique aspects.
