I would say standard blue Hong Kong with discolored limbs.

Agreed - that’s what happened to my much loved childhood boba... Looks pretty good though.

You need to see if there is a scar on the leg and what type of scar there is on the leg if there is a scar :wink:

That's interesting to see, I can imagine that easily being passed off as a trilogo Fett as the colour match is pretty good.

Ya thats what I was saying. I asked for a picture of the back of the leg but the picture is very hard to tell if it has a COO or not. I asked for a better picture and got no response.

It was up on ebay and i waited to see if i would get a better picture but did not, so i took a chance and bid just incase it was a tri logo....

Any ways I won this Fett for only 31 USD. So even if its not a tri then I think I got a nice Fett for a fair price. If it is a tri logo :-) .... score :-)

It looks like a discoloured regular Fett to me, with some bright lighting to help. Tri-logo Fetts have the same colour torso and limbs which, even with degradation, I've never seen a torso turn more blue with age.

I agree, it's definitely not a tri-logo or PBP Fett, but instead looks to simply be a discoloured one... Although isn't there also an early Hong Kong Fett whose limbs are (and always were?) lighter than the rest of the figure? Hopefully someone with more knowledge than me can confirm or debunk that part :-)

Yeah the bright photo lighting doesn't help either, iv'e even seen regular Fett's amongst other figures in ebay listings before and was convinced it was a light Fett trilogo because of the camera flash, until I asked for an extra pic of the back of it. :lol:

With the limbs on this one though it does seem like a trilogo, interesting figure though!

There is a grey limb Fett but the color is a bit different to the one shown. Here’s a picture of one that I have with mixed limbs so you can see the grey vs. blue.

Hmmm... If the seller was made aware of the potential trilogo fett-ness, but didn’t add photos to confirm either way ... this most likely speaks volumes!

... when he arrives, wanna see a photo of his back side - start the drum roll :lol:

The grey limbs blue torso Fett is a known Hong Kong variant. I hope you didn't pay Trilogo price for him mate, because I think you' maybe disappointed.
