Help with Bobba Fett - turquoise backpack

Postby Geekymonkey » Mon Feb 06, 2017 8:14 pm

Hi all,

I have come across this fett - now I am a newbie so apologies if I have missed the blindingly obvious but I have not seen one like this - is it just a HK coo bog standard ? Or a variant of sorts .... It has weird melted bits around the left leg and the rocket pack is really turquoise and not a shade of blue. Help please !!???

Hope the pics are good enough to show what I am asking .....

Thanks in advance.

Not a touch up for that I am pretty sure...unless people are spraying them with a very similar mask the paint under UV Is consistent in appearance no 'heavy ' areas

Appreciate the kindly and polite response, yes of course the one above has, in parts been redone - hence the black on the backpack - but the blue / turquoise is very similar to the one in my original post - as for the singular pic it was taken from a respected variant collectors site as a comparison of the backpack blue only - certainly my visual capacity is fine. Your comment was not helpful. But thanks for your time.

Yours looks like a paint over, from what I can see in places there are some chips which reveal the true blue underneath
If its Luke Jedi then I'm interested, vintage or modern.

I dont think its been touched up myself. Ive got all sorts of shades of blue and green - mostly batch differences or colour fades. I'll have a look through mine and see if I have anything close.

Cheers fellas... Any help is appreciated....
The world of variants is a minefield of interesting changes and differences for a new collector holding into his childhood - pic below is me aged 4 ! (Not much has changed except onset of baldness)

No idea about the Fett, but great photo. What's with Vader and Han doing push ups!? :lol:

Ha ha I remember the Vader and Han would never stand up on the little foot stool....

If fact I thing I still have that foot stool as I saved it when my grandparents died...maybe a scene recreation is in order ? It will depend on how pissed I get at the weekend :?

I just noticed the DSD, CCP AND Mr Numb are all doing the same on the floor, albeit hidden by the retro carpet ...
