I love Squid Head and all the different cape colours be it variant or degradation. Only have the 1 mind which I’ll try and post soon

I'm sure there are genuine Squid Head cape colour variations out there, but you are spot on Jay with regards to colour degradation. Much like the Ugnaught's blue smock, some (but only some!) of which contain dye which degrades / discolours to give us the purple smocked 'variant', with Squid Head some capes unquestionably also change colour. I have one example which is mid-change and you can tell this because it is doing so unevenly (perhaps the dye used in the cloth was itself unevenly distributed?). It's the second one from the right below in the pictures of all 6 figures, or the middle figure in the close-up final pic. As you can see, unsurprisingly it's far easier to see the change on the back of the figures :-)

Anyway, here are mine. Sadly I have no impressive Lili Ledy variant, however I do have a nice selection of different colours / shades in the figures I have got.

That’s a lot of cape variations Jeremy - impressive!

I bought this off Edd many years ago on the forum, apparently it’s quite a rare combination and I know of one other.

I can only offer a loose one, no MOC as I don’t collect ROTJ.
This is a great under appreciated figure in my books.

Great colour variations Jeremy. An orange sold for £80+ on eBay the other day. Lovely example Nick. Superb 2 pack Andy.

I agree, the figure is another of my favourites. But the cardback art is largely disappointing so I can’t bring myself to buy it either.

Exactly, that’s why I have a loose one!

Thanks both. And that's a lovely 2-pack, Andy.

A fine example. Thanks for sharing :-)

Is it just the photo, or are your Squid Head's eyes unusually dark?
