Well then it looks like I was quite wrong and these are real Kenner prototypes after all. My apologies for my scepticism and especially for doubting the clearly excellent memory of Mini99! :-)

If these were indeed sculpted by a Kenner employee, and especially if done so 'unofficially', perhaps that explains why they aren't more well-known. It would certainly explain why they aren't more polished. And if they were made with the Cantina set in mind (i.e. circa 1978/9), perhaps that also explains why they were kit-bashed from original figures rather than new sculpts, and also why Pin-Head Han was used rather than Balloon head.

This is a perfect example of why I love this hobby! There's always something new to learn :-D

...Now if you'll excuse me, I must retrieve that three pound note from Donald's Trump's wig before he rides off with it on that unicorn :lol:

My apologies once again. When I said 'wig', what I actually meant was 'entirely natural and totally convincing hair which is 100% his own and in no way augmented or combed over in any way, and which no intelligent or right-thinking person could ever have any reason to doubt, and which in no way makes him look like a ludicrous, bald arse.'

I hope that sets the record straight.

Look up Kenner Butch cassidy Toy. Same mechanism.
Seen the Han before (pretty sure there are two examples in differing states of condition), Greedo though was new to me when this popped up

Always good to learn something new! When did these crop up? Surprised I've never seen them before.

Thorsten Lafos posted it on his instagram feed a few days ago but I'd never seen them before then. By the sounds of it they've been known about for a long time but perhaps out of the public eye?
