Re: Black Palace Blaster Repro ?

Re: Luke Stormtrooper Black Blaster?

I agree it is the 'revised/modified Repro V9 with the same mould flaw/dot carried over.

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
