Ah ok I hadn’t heard of this variation. I had just assumed it was discolouration. I’m a bit out of touch with variants these days.

Hong Kong coo fetts are found on esb cards as I believe the Taiwan fetts was produced in the rotj era .

the discolouration limbs are known as "grey limbs" variant. there are two different versions of the "grey limbs" (black belt / brown belt) both being stamped "Hong Kong". The one I seen with esb palitoy cards have been "grey limbs, brown belt, hong kong".

variants are like minefields :lol:

The trilogo Fett was only on ROTJ trilogo cards.

That's as far as my knowledge goes and I might be wrong! :lol:

Cool thanks for the info that’s really helpful. That’s a variant I’ll have to look out for.

Also I didn’t realise the Hong Kong COO could be found with the black belt too!?

Have any other Fett variations been found on ESB Palitoy cards? I haven’t seen many carded ones to be able to confirm myself.

Yes there is a lot of different variants of Boba Fett :).

Only one I seen is the (grey limbs, hong kong, brown belt) on esb palitoy cards. of course there could have been other variants on them cards but to my knowledge those are the only fett's I seen sealed on them cards.

I have looked into these recently. Small copyright HK - Kader produced the most common Fett which during ESB often had limbs that degraded is on 'all' Palitoy ESB. Never Taiwan (first appeared Pali 45C & Kenner NN offfer 48) or 'PBP' (65 on). Big copyright HK is also ROTJ only & non Taiwan Droids (so far)

Thanks James, awesome info as always.

So small c Hong Kong is number 2 on Wolff’s COO guide? And majority of these have degraded limbs? They almost look like the limbs of the PBP / trilogo figure!
