**COO VARIANTS** by Plantainman

Postby plantainman » Tue Jan 26, 2016 11:30 pm

There's Eight Hammerhead figures in total to showcase here, four euro NO COO and four of their HONG KONG predecessors...

Family I...
Image

L > R, Euro 'G remaining', Euro scar, HK low, HK high
Image

Family II...
Image

L > R, Euro NO COO left align, Euro NO COO right align, HK high, HK low
Image

Differences between the two families; Family II has a finer detailed sculpt...
Image

The brown applied to the torso to match the skin colour can vary...
Image

Four eye combinations, Clockwise from top right, Eyes down, Eyes left, Eyes up, Eyes right...
Image

Group shot of all 8, L > R Family I to Family II...
Image

The Euro scar figures have a darker, more royal blue torso compared to the more aquamarine colour of the HK torso's.

The Euro scar figures come with blue PBP imperial blasters with the 'bar' underneath the clip

All of my Family II figures have 'eyes left'; It is only in family I that I personally have noticed a wide variety of eye variations. Has anyone got a lot of different 'eyes' in family II in their collection?

cheers, Neil

Cheers fellas.

I love the Hammerhead figure. There's something about it that just ticks all the boxes. Maybe its the expressive, yet wonderfully simple eyes, I dunno!

**COO VARIANTS** by Plantainman

Postby plantainman » Thu May 19, 2016 9:11 pm

There are three main different NO COO's for the Nien Nunb figure, Small font smooth coo, Large font rough coo, and the Ledy variant, with the datestamp on the right leg.
The small font smooth coo, which can be seen in the upper pictures below, has two slight alignment variations. These are much harder to find than the more common Large font rough coo that can be found widely around Europe. The small font smooth coo figures seem to be slightly more common in France, Make of that what you will as to what cards they appear on.

Image

Below are all four of the NO COO Nien Nunb figures. There's little to no variation between the two small font smooth coo figures outside of the coo alignment. These figures tend to have slightly faded legs.
The Large font rough coo figure is a distinctively different colour tone to the smaller font smooth coo. and benefits from an even colour tone between limbs and torso.
The Lili Ledy figure on the right has a different colour tone again, and is the deepest red tone of the lot. You'll notice the paint apps around the lips and eyes are significantly darker too. The Ledy figure is accompanied by a ledy specific black pilot blaster which is marked with LL.

L>R Small font smooth coo I, Small font smooth coo II, Large font rough coo, Lili Ledy

AT-AT Commander (No Coo)

Coo guide...
Left to right, Family II With dots (circled yellow), Family II without dots, Family I L1b.
The green & red triangles differentiate the two different Euro scars which can be found on both Family II Left legs, whilst the blue triangle differentiates from the No Coo family I figure above it, showing a more prominent 'G' remaining.
Image

Below, all four PBP Euro scarred COO 'pale pink' face variants...
The faces are seemingly all painted in two layers, whiteish baselayer with a pinker tone over the top
Image
Image

Below, Left to right, PBP scarred COO 'white face', Scarred COO True 'Pink face', Smooth COO Euro 'Orange face' I, Smooth COO Euro 'Orange face' II
The 'true pink face' is very individual as it is not painted 'pink on white' like the scarred Euro's above, but instead a deep rich pink tone alone
Image
Image

Group shot of all eight No Coo AT-AT Commanders...
Image
L > R, PBP white face, True pink face, four Euro scarred pale pink faces, Two Euro smoothed COO orange faces.

Peace
