Chewbacca figure, COO reference guide..New Update!

Postby Dublinjeff » Mon Mar 02, 2015 7:41 pm

Chewbacca figure, COO reference guide:

IMG_20150302_115242.jpg


Going back to the first 12 again for the next little reference guide. Decided Chewie was a good choice, apart from being an iconic character, but also due to the large number of different COO variants, eye colours etc...

Thanks again to Wolff for all his previous work. Also, thanks to Lars aka Pomse2001 for his excellent documenting of COO variations.

First appearing on the 12 Back card. Nice Palitoy example here...

Also available on a number of different cardback. Here's a shot of the ESB and ROTJ cards I used to own.

A number of different COO variants available:

Hong Kong
Made in Hong Kong
Taiwan
No COO
Lili Ledy
Top Toys

The figure has a number of different eye colour variations.
This figure has bright blue eyes as can be seen here.

Similarly, the figures pouch has a number of different colour variations. This figure has a 'Chocolate brown' color pouch.

Updates to both of these variations will be added once new figures arrive in :D

No COO, Euro/PBP figure:

Next up is a Euro/PBP No COO variant. Copyright and GMFGI stamp on left leg. It's very difficult to see the markings, even in hand.
IMG_20150309_095704.jpg


Leg markings:
I. 2b on Wolffs guide. As you can see here the markings are very difficult to make out. The '77 is almost illegible towards the end.
IMG_20150309_095759.jpg


Head sculpt/Eye colour:
Similar head sculpt to Hong Kong figure. Very Light Blue eyes.
