Blog Update #8 (06/04/2018)

Time to say good bye …

A small blog this weekend as the Elusive (to me) MOCs, that I have managed to track down are still in postal limbo – they are somewhere between here in the North East of Scotland and there in the West Coast of the USA.

However, it doesn’t matter; this post is about letting go rather taking hold. Below is my beloved Unitoys (Made in Hong Kong - Factory HT) Luke Jedi with original accessories and snap cape.

I have had this fella for nearly decade and he has been a cherished part of my collection. By comparing my MOCs and his twin brother (who has a slightly different COO marking) – I can place him originally to be carded on either a 1st Edition or 2nd Edition 65-A Back (HT) card back. He’s in great shape.

I wasn’t planning on selling him and (to be honest) I did have to think very hard before doing so, but a friend here on TIG called out for help as the figure and its unique accessories are quite hard to find. I did help in trying to find some on eBay, but the prices were crazy. Wanting to help, I decided to sell one of my own.

After Bryan’s and Rodolfo unselfish act of kindness to me, I thought I would pass on the good will and part a loved piece into someone else’s quest. It helped fuel my Luke Jedi focus back in the day, hopefully it will be cherished in a new focus…  

It’s a weird sensation that I feel, money wasn’t really an issue here (and I did get compensated for my loss), but it was more the felling that I helped someone else and that made me happy and smile.

Have a good weekend all!  Very Happy

1. European Smooth Deleted no CoO 2L HK (TIG guide #5) light brown hair (a childhood ROTJ card, sadly lost later into adulthood)

2. China 3L HK (TIG guide #8) blonde hair. A strange one. An eBay purchase from Brianstoys way back, & he came with a more translucent DT saber, they said he couldn't be AFA graded so sold him as a DT-maybe. I subsequently sold No 6 (£85, private sale, less than I paid for him) before I used TIG/Rebelscum/Others, to identify 'Circles' variant.

3. 3L HK (TIG guide #6) with early 'Circles' DT saber

4. 2L HK (TIG guide #1) badly welded torso, darker brown translucent hair

5. 2L HK (TIG guide #1) brown hair
I used the old TIG guide:

And sorry, China now has a Repro DT saber, but it's NEVER leaving my collection.

LUKE BESPIN

COO guide for Luke Bespin
Topics tagged under 8 on The Imperial Gunnery Forum Luke_b14

A. COO #7 and the almost identical COO #8 are shared by Lili Ledy and Kenner (brown Luke)
B. COO #4 is shared by Lili Ledy and PBP (blond Luke)

A. COO #7 and COO #8

The Ledy brown Luke came with two slightly different COOs. They differ in the relative position of the raised bar relative to the crease on the left leg:
-COO #7: Raised bar stops at the crease
-COO #8: Raised bar extending the crease.

Luke Bespin: Kenner COO #8 (left), Lili Ledy COO #7 (right).

Comparison between Ledy Lukes: COO #8 (left, bar extends crease), COO #7 (right, bar stops at crease).
Topics tagged under 8 on The Imperial Gunnery Forum Luke_b20


DIFFERENCES:

Compared to his Kenner ('Made in China' baggie) counterpart, the Ledy Luke Bespin has:
- Mustard brown hair instead of orange brown hair
- A face which is cast in a paler (less pinkish) plastic
- Black instead of darkbrown eyebrows
- Brown instead of greenish brown boots
- A thicker sprayed saber (this is most easy to spot)


PAINT VARIATIONS:

Small Variations:
The small paint differences between the Lili Ledy figures (the colour of the boots and the thickness of the eyes and eyebrows) which can be seen in the pictures below, are due to small batch to batch variations and/or Lili Ledy’s sloppy quality control.

Comparison between Lukes: From left to right: 1 (Kenner), 2 (Ledy), 3 (Ledy), 4 (Ledy)
Topics tagged under 8 on The Imperial Gunnery Forum Luke_b21

Comparison between Lukes: Counterclockwise starting at the top: 1 (Kenner), 2 (Ledy), 3 (Ledy), 4 (Ledy)
Topics tagged under 8 on The Imperial Gunnery Forum Luke_b22

Major variations:
The dark brown Ledy Luke Bespin in the pictures below is a kitbashed figure composed of a Ledy body and a factory painted Ledy overstock head. The dark brown Luke Bespin was never released on card by Lili Ledy.

Comparison between Brown Lukes: Figure with overstock head (left), Production figure (right)

Topics tagged under 8 on The Imperial Gunnery Forum Luke_b32


DIFFERENCES:

Compared to his PBP counterpart, the blond Ledy Luke Bespin has:
- Pale blond instead of yellowish blond hair
- A face which is cast in a paler (less pinkish) plastic
- Darker brown boots
- A sprayed saber which is connected to the sprayed belt

Note: The blond Luke Bespin was released on Ledy's ESB 10-back but also on the early ROTJ 12-back. The brown hair Ledy Luke was released on later ROTJ cards.



ACCESSORIES


LIGHTSABER:

The Ledy Luke Bespin came with a yellow V1 saber. Also PBP released sabers with a V1 mould (denoted as V2 in TIG’s reference weapon guide: http://www.imperialgunnery.com/thelightsabersection.htm ).

Topics tagged under 8 on The Imperial Gunnery Forum Luke_b33

GUN:
The brown Ledy Luke Bespin carries a blue V1 Bespin gun. The blond Ledy Luke also came with a smuggler gun on the first ESB 10-backs.
