Chief Chirpa Staff - Unknown variant - Help Required

Postby TheJabbaWookie » Tue Sep 26, 2017 5:58 pm

Hi guys, I've recently received a Chief Chirpa and only just noticed the staff that comes with it does not match any of the known variants as far as I can tell.

It most closely resembles the Top Toys v5 because of the texture on the staff, but it does not have the two EPMs. And it came with a H.K. CoO Chirpa and definitely not a Top Toys one.

I'm not familiar with the modern line so don't know if it could be a POTF2 (if indeed they even made a Chirpa) or a Vintage Collection.

The pics below show the staff in question on the left against my Vintage CC staff.

Any help identifying would be glady received.

Jay

Yeah I know, but then so does the Top Toys variant.

Forgot to say, it's a floater not a sinker.

I also reckon it's a chewed on round tip (V1 or V3). V1 is the same bone size as a V2 ( your tapered EPM version) Pic shows difference between V1 & V3 ( V1 on bottom)

So chewed on by a dog or an over eager young Star Wars fan :lol:
