Re: Cloud Car Pilot 'painted torso'

Looks painted, but the torso is moulded out of another type of plastic like ABS. Some sensorscope R2D2 and Hoth troopers are the same. I think I remember Wolff saying the could of been made in Macau but still used the Hong Kong coo.

Re: Thoughts on this helmet?

Deffo' a stripped helmet, tell tale sign is the flaking on the very top. Ledy overstock helmets are not matt yellow but more like a worthers original if that makes sense.

Re: Are These Capes Real Or Repro ?

On second look, the Lando cape looks to be too light, should be pinkish.

Re: Are These Capes Real Or Repro ?

Vader and Lando's capes both look good imho. Taiwan coo Leias came with a non zipping cape I believe.

Re: FAKE CHEWIE?

Hi Will, what you have there looks to be a PBP Chewie, he was made in Spain. Not the rarest figure, but certainly not a fake. hope that helps.
