Re: THE VINTAGE REBELLION : Episode 34 Launched

Only part way though listening to the podcast but I can help shed some light on the TFP "ghost" coo you referred to, otherwise known as a COO Family I figure, image below.... Sometimes the simplest explanation is the most obvious, in this case the COO text was stamped in the wrong half of ...

Re: v weapons....

I think it's a bit harsh to say 'made up', I agree that Kenner didn't call these accessories a 'v5' or a 'v whatever', but this is a term which collectors have adopted themselves to identify the different sculpts. Take for example Wollf's excellent COO guide, the example below shows the IG-88 figure...

Re: anyone own any toptoys loose figures?

Talking of Top Toys figures I've been photographing my Luke Jedi for the next installment of my reference guide.
