Re: ESB Palitoy / PBP Bossk Figure

Fat lips Bossk (no CoO) is a 'mould family' all to itself (similar to PBP Biker Scout & Disco boots Death Squad Commander) IMO it is a Spanish produced figure.

Re: ESB Palitoy / PBP Bossk Figure

'Most' countries imported items ready for retail (packaged already) ie. Americans bought MOCs directly from the overseas factories.

Re: ESB Palitoy / PBP Bossk Figure

Re: ESB Palitoy / PBP Bossk Figure

I'm no legal expert but I'm pretty sure even back then they would not have got away with printing one COO on the card and having a figure with a different COO packaged on to it.
