I like the look of those POTF Mocs. It is a shite figure though. He’s like the Emperors personal assistant or butler or something. Kind of pointless for kids, he can’t even hold a blaster..! I bought one literally last week. I have to say I do quite like the overall sculpt and colour.

And the loose one has a perfect nose, had to find like that these days.

Thanks. Yes, there is a slight tint to the bubble, but it could also be a lot worse! And as for the nose, what a design flaw by Kenner! :lol:


Probably the clearest bubble I've seen for an Imperial Dignitary! Very nice! 8)

Thanks :-)

a Tri-logo bubble is not sealed and I have placed one of my loose figures behind the bubble so it looks better :D

Another tri-logo cardback where one of my loose figures stand in front of it

and last another tri-logo, bubble it crushed in the bottom and figure can be removed, I bought it like that with a imperial dignitary figure on the card with a broken nose :roll: all the cards are with danish price stickers 8)

That's another great selection, Lars! Thanks for sharing :-)

Any chance of showing a close-up of the 2 different no COO's? I may not collect them, but they're still interesting to see, especially when there aren't any other obvious differences between the figure variants for the purple-rinsed old dear ;-)

Thanks mate for the kind words :D A few years ago I made this little guide see the link viewtopic.php?f=16&t=24368&p=330999#p330984 and if you want to learn more about some of the other figures and potf figures then here is another link to the guide we did viewtopic.php?f=16&t=23894 but the guide is far from done. If you look at luke stormie then you can see the 3 different no coo is much easier to spot viewtopic.php?f=16&t=24209

Some coo and no coo is also better to spot with magnifying glass, a friend told me that. It is also good to use magnifying glass to spot different details on the figures and weapons :lol:

I’ve always liked this figure as an adult but would have hated it as a kid

Nice examples chaps

Your Welcome, I did them with jeff, but we have not done some for a long time. But I hope you can use them. I hope we will find some time in the future to do some more work, others are also welcome to add info in the threads :wink:
