Princess Leia Organa Figure, COO reference guide NEW UPDATES: 17/11/17

Princess Leia Organa, COO reference guide:

01.jpg


Again I, decided to help Jeff. So here is one of many guides. I never had Princess Leia Organa when I was a kid. I remember I wanted that figure
so much but I never got her, if I remember correct then it was not easy to find her in the stores :(

If anyone has any other variants to add, please feel free to update the reference guide. All help appreciated.

Princess Leia Organa can be found on many cards :D

Before I learned about variants I thought there was only one COO variant of this figure :lol:

The force is strong with leia, but she do not know it :lol:

Hello, hello. Thought I'd introduce myself by way of helping to update this section with what is becoming my personal obsession. I'm also posting pics detailing cape textures, blasters, and paint. These figures were purchased loose, so I am hoping that I can find some verification that the accessories are matched up correctly.

First up is my own No COO

I'd say first that I'm not an expert, but I can give my opinion and tell you what I know. I have two Leias with "no zip" capes. The first is the Taiwan, which is well documented. The other is a Hong Kong COO. It's in the pictures I posted. I believe it to be authentic mainly because of the discoloration on the back. It's slightly but noticeably yellow as if from sun or simply age, like a couple other Leia capes I have that do have the crosshatch pattern. I also trust the seller who said he was selling his Early Bird set from when he was a kid. He had already sold the Luke, and so I bought the Artoo, Chewbacca, and Leia. The Artoo was the dark blue variation, and Chewbacca came with the infamous green bowcaster. Not conclusive, but a point in a good direction. I'd also note the fact that both Vader and Ben also come with "zip" and "no zip" capes. Now, I do have a Hong Kong Leia with a zipping cape, but the COO is smaller and higher on her leg. She also has black hair/belt. I got this after the pics I posted. To compare, the "no zip" HK Leia has brown hair/belt. I hope that info helps.

I am also not an expert :D but after collecting in 17 years then I have learned something :lol: Nice a ben with no zip, I did not know that :shock:
I always find the zip capes in childhood lots :roll: Never the no zip cape :(

I will try to find some time to upload the rest of my leia variants so we can compare variants of figures, capes and weapons :D

Here is 2 pictures of the no zip cape that confuse me. Let me know what you think or if you need better pictures ? :D

The cut of your cape looks almost identical to my HK brown hair/belt Leia, right down to the clipped corner.

This is the front of my cape. It's tough to see, but the yellowing follows the line of the back and doesn't extend to the side. So only on the part most exposed.

Nice, so you don't think it is a cape for the Taiwan ? I never thought the no zip was sold on Hong Kong ? :?

No, the Taiwan capes are very thin, and one has a horizontal line pattern. This cape is thick but flexible. Like I said, the aging give points for authenticity, and I would also expect if it is a repro, we would find it on a variety of different Leia figures, which is why I ask, what color hair and belt does your Leai have, and what's her COO stamp look like? If ours match, it's another good point for authenticity.

Honestly, we'll never be positive unless someone pulls one of a card or out of a baggie, but we can make a reasonable conclusion

I got it with a Hong Kong Leia. I bought it with 2 other capes from another collector who also collect variants. He was sure they all were original.
But not sure if they were on the correct figure variants. All 3 have no zip sound, the vader I later learned was a lili ledy, the leia still confuse me and then there is a tusken raider that confuse me very much :? But I can upload pictures of my other figures to compare capes, weapons and figure variants with you :D
