Thanks Bill. Appreciate the nod.
I wish I had more time to photograph and document the others I have to share. A quarter of the way through the year and only 2 figures added to the thread. I'll endeavour to get a couple more done before the end of May!

Vive variants!

Rebel Soldier Variants

• We'll be looking at the Poch, PBP & Meccano figures and their Kenner cousins of the same Coo family

That said, Here's the guide.....

Coo guide...
Top row Left to right, Fam 1 MIHK, Fam 3 HK, Fam 2 HK
Bottom row Left to right, Fam 1 Poch, Fam 3 PBP, Fam 2 Meccano

Image

Left to right, Fam 1 MIHK Kenner & Fam 1 MIHK Poch
Notice :
• Whiter trousers and neck tie on Poch figure (Creamier on Kenner)
• Thinner black bar at bottom of chest emblem on Poch
Image

Left to right, Fam 1 MIHK Poch, PBP Pale face, PBP Cream face & PBP Pink face
All four spanish produced. The dark brown rebel soldier (DBRS) can come in two tones, A muddy brown as can be seen on the pale face figure, and a richer red-brown which can be seen on both the creamy and pink face figures.
Image

Left to right, PBP Pale face, PBP Cream face, PBP Pink face & Fam 3 HK (Kenner)
The three DBRS are alongside their parent figure, The Family 3 HK Kenner. The mould is the same, But the appearance is very different, which makes the DBRS such a great variant!
Image

Clockwise from top,
Fam 3 HK (Kenner), PBP Pale face, PBP Pink face & PBP Cream face

Image

So here are the eight rebel soldier figures we have highlighted....
Left to right,
Fam 1 MIHK Kenner, Fam 1 MIHK Poch, PBP Pale face, PBP Cream face, PBP Pink face, Fam 3 HK, Fam 2 HK, Meccano No Coo

Image

Peace

Thanks fellas.

Yeah Rebel soldier is such a great sculpt, and so many Coo's to collect also. Difficult to narrow it down to just 8 variants for this thread, because the China and blank raised bar figures are quirky too! There's also a few different minor paint app variants on the Poch figures also, But this info can be found elsewhere on the net.

Going to photograph one of my favourite figures next, It's an all No Coo collection of eight figures............

Awesome info. I've been searching for some detailed variant info to identify my hammerheads and this is the best Coo guide I've come across by far. Helped me determine my euro variant and the right pbp blaster to place with him. :D

Really glad to hear you have been assisted in some way. That's what this info is here for.
Note to self : Must document some more of my figures soon :idea:
The pbp hammerheads have a lighter blue imperial blaster with the bar underneath the clip.
Peace
