My philosophy on these figures is to reassemble without modification, gluing or additional parts. There's something about knowing that all the bits were from the same original set.


Oh ok, I understand :wink: I once fixed my childhood Y-Wing after my little brother damaged it. I took some parts from another Y-Wing that I bought on ebay. I even found a box for it and I put a little note in the box where I wrote which parts I have replaced if I forgot :lol:

Here's my loose 2; one white, one grey. I've photographed them side by side so anyone unfamiliar with the colour and accessory differences can see them:

Pointed Staff, but what's the difference between the hoods?

The Hood on the white one is darker and if you take the hood of the ewok then you can see a circle in the bottom of the hood :wink:

But there is a light and also a dark hood with circle in the hood and then there is 3 different types of circles and then again there is hoods with letters in the hood so there is many hood variants for chief chirpa :lol:

Cheers mate
He does have a weapon but you just need to look that bit closer in front of his feet. Kind of blends in from that angle

Nice collection Lars. Here’s my Chief Chirpa. I would like a White Fur variant. Didn’t realise they had specific accessories and don’t think I’ve ever seen that particular variant staff shown in Jeremy’s pic. How rare are the white fur Chirpas?

They're not very rare at all really. Grey is more common, but the main problem is identifying a white one in a photo where there isn't a grey one standing next to it to help differentiate the colours! I bought a couple of loose ones off eBay thinking they were white, only to find they were really grey when I had them in hand :roll: . The highly variable quality of photos used on auctions, plus flash photography lightening the colours of everything can make spotting the whites in amongst the greys annoyingly difficult!
