Cloud Car Pilot 'painted torso'

Postby subzero » Tue Sep 05, 2017 3:12 pm

Just got this CCP ( Kenner 77 back ) but the torso is painted instead of moulded, and the limbs are moulded, iv'e tried googling about this variant and can't find anything on it.

It looks like a PBP or Ledi torso but it's not, it's actually a Kenner, i'm assuming this might be a rarer variant but does anybody else have one of these or know anything about it or how rare it might be?

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.

Ah right okay thanks for that, it's driving me a little mad now cus I genuinely can't tell it's moulded by looking at it, it really does look painted but if this is a moulded torso then that's some weird plastic they've used lol.

I wanna rip it out and feel it :lol:

Haha thanks! :)

I'm actually collecting both, loose and MOC, I do have a loose Cloud Car Pilot I can physically molest but it doesn't have the same torso :lol:

I have a few loose figures of them, they are not easy to find, I think.

Cool that you got one on a moc 8)

Ah sweet so it's still fairly rare then?.. is there any kind of name or anything for this variant?

If it's not a painted torso then what else would this variant be named/identified as?

I think it would be fair to call him "Hard torso" .

I do not know what to call it. But the body looks to be some kind of pbp and legs and arms is more kenner.

There is also a stormtropper that is also a little hard to find with a hard pbp body and soft arms and legs like the kenner. I have a loose and one moc also on a kenner card.

I do not know the story. But maybe it was put together with spare parts from different factories :?

You can see my stormie here :D

and my moc with hard body and soft legs and arms :D

Thanks for the info on that it def helps a lot, just good to clear it up for me as it's good to have an idea of exactly what it is I own.

So i'll be calling this a hard torso from now on, i'm already aware of the hard torso Stormies but just didn't think it would be the same type of plastic. And yes perhaps they were spare torso's used from another factory for some reason, maybe there was a problem producing it in the Kenner factory so they needed a last minute solution?.. who knows!

Thanks again :)
