China COO figure:

As promised a new update in relation to the China COO figure. Having received a couple of new painted face figures i had a closer look at the paint application on the figures. Noticeable difference between a couple of them. The following pictures show that there is a light and darker eye paint application available.

Body Sculpt update:

Ok. Had a closer look at the different variants...having discussed the obvious sculpt differences on the neckline on the figures on page 2, here are a couple of other sculpt differences worth pointing out between the China COO figure and the Hong Kong COO and No COO figures.

First up, there is a noticeable difference on the front creases in the shirt. Highlighted below, the China COO figure has 4 creases as opposed to 2 on the other variants.

The second thing that I noticed was a definite grey 'lip' on the right lapel of the Hong Kong COO and No COO figures that isn't present on the China COO figure. I have examined all 31 loose variants I currently have and this is a feature throughout!

These new sculpt updates, alongside the neckline difference and back pack stripes, should make identifying a China COO figure on card very easy.

How a guide comes together!

Not always the result of a character focus, but it helps :D

Just for you Lars... :D

I added the link on page 2, but here are a couple of pictures of the Palitoy 65 back cards with varying COO figures. It appears that all three coo variants were available on the Palitoy 65 back 'Made in Hong Kong' card.

It is quite apparent that the mix of COO and cardback origins is not limited to only Palitoy cardback. Here's my example of a Kenner 79 back "Made in Hong Kong" cardback. The figure is 100% a China COO...

China COO / Hong Kong, No COO Sculpt Differences

Noticed a couple of other differences between the sculpts of the China COO figure compared to the Hong Kong and No COO figures.

First up, there is a distinctly different Sculpt on the rear pouches of the China COO figure. The two pouches are connected as opposed to a gap between them on the Hong Kong and No COO figures...
IMG_20160323_180435.jpg


Next small difference between the COO is on the Boot wader buttons. The China COO figure has the buttons on both feet recessed into 'dimples'. The Hong Kong and No COO figures have much more defined buttons sticking out....

When referencing the China COO figure in the sculpt differences, I am including both the Moulded head and the painted face variants.

Both have the same sculpt characteristics/differences compared to the Hong Kong and No COO figures.
