Re: Possible Lili ledy C3po removable limbs?

Great find mate, can you post a picture of the ends of the limbs when he is dismantled? The tips should be white rather than cream if Ledy.
Ledy and Kenner both share that scarred coo as far as I can remember, and both are quite hard to find.

Re: Ever get something better than you thought you had?

A couple of years ago I bid on & won a loose R2 sensorscope for less than £5 when it arrived it was a pop up R2 no sabre sadly, but a very nice surprise :D

Re: **COO VARIANTS** by Plantainman

Thanks Neil, stella work as always, the Meccano Akbar is a near impossible to identify from the Euro when not in hand, but your photo of the EMP marks on the top of the head is very informative. Thanks again :)

Re: Is this a Lili Ledy Jawa?

The coo is correct Pat, its family 3 and thats shared by both Kenner & Ledy, as Lili Ledy used Kenners old moulds for this figure. Also the almond/lemon shaped eyes are right too. Congrats :)

Re: Rebel Soldier

Not a variant mate, looks like someone got creative with scraping the white paint off the leg.

Re: Help with Bespin Blaster

Seen a couple on Evilbay for £300 but they have sat around. £250 I guess would be about right but with FB who know, for right person, at the right time.

Re: How to safely remove vinyl capes?

The best way I have found is to soak the figure in warm water for a couple of minutes, this makes the cape softer, more pliable and then as said previously angle the arms backwards and it should come off a treat :D
